Re: Linear polarizer

Might try a linear polarizer if you want to eliminate the uneven polarization effect of circular polarizers at wide angles. Some people like the dark-to-light transition, especially visible in blue skies at wide angles, but linear polarizers are more even while allowing a little more light through.

Linear Polarizers were designed for film cameras and are said to be "generally incompatible" with modern digital cameras that use Contrast Phase Detection as part of their Autofocus method.
