p.1 #1 · CPL on 14-24 and Lee SW150



Any one had success or have advice on what CPL may work with the Lee SW150 setup for the 14-24 2.8?
Primary interest in the adapter was to use CPL, just located a kit now need to solve the "what filter?" question.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I am not much help ... I have never ventured down this road. I use HDR technique's when the light isn't right.

A review of the SW150 in the following link with a comment on how the photographer got around the lack of a Lee PL for the SW150 kit.

A CPL on a lens that wide is probably going to have issues...

What kind of issues?
Of course one shouldn't use a polarizer on a wide angle lens to darken the sky.
But to take away reflections from green foliage or wet stones at a waterfall it's a must have!

Cavision makes a 6x6 glass circular polarizer that's within the realm of affordability (sort of): http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/833348-REG/Cavision_FTG6X6PLC_6_x_6_Circular.html

At 4mm you'll have to get the 4mm bracket from Lee to use it on the SW150. I think you might be able to use it effectively for landscapes if you're working between, say 21 - 24mm. The only thing that keeps me from buying one myself is that I haven't figured out how to keep from breaking it out in the field. A 6 x 6 piece of glass is an awfully large target for Murphy's Law.
