Re: Linear v Circular Polarizers

My opinion, but I'm no expert ...........

As a circular polariser is made from a linear polariser sandwiched together with a quarter wave filter then there shouldn't be any differences in performance as regards to their polarising properties.

Obviously the added quater wave filter will block a certain amount of light but this light loss will act evenly on the polarised and non-polarised light so should only affect the light transmission and not the polarisation.
