A polarizer should be rated in density. The average is around 2 stops. The high transmission types might be 1 1/2 stops or less. They seem better for reflections in water where you don't want to lose shutter speed.

For stills, I can compensate for the density, but don't know how that works with video. I think I'd want the highest transmission polarizer I could get, especially with fish under water.

Thank you for the reply BBbuilder467

You reference the slightly lower than 2 stops would be preferable for my needs, so with this B+W CPL would the stated Filter Factor: 2.5 (1.3 Stop) be adequate, or too much?

A couple of product links would be super useful for me to get an idea so I can compare specs.

Thank you
