    Circular Polarised Lens, it reduces reflected light so great for shots of water. Well, unless you want the light anyway!

    So you have a ten quid bit of glass on the end of a prime bit of optical ware worth several hundred pounds

    It feels like shooting through the windscreen of a car

    I don't spend ten quid on a UV filter. I pay more for a better quality one. It's just a little protection. If you don't understand that then ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I use neutral density filters based on the weather when photographing or creating videos when using my drones .
    They can cut through sun glare and also takes out the glistening you get from the sea .


    Wouldnt be without them.

    Technically yes as Gnasher was based on the Affenpinscher. But having said that, I’d rather call a dog Dennis than Gnasher.
