Well, this is very small post about filters, especially polarized. I never thought, that this small thing can turn my life to a nightmare.
The story is… I have (already had) 3 polarized filters of different cost, all 77mm — — Tiffen (50$), Vivitar (25$), Zeicos (12$) — which match to most of professional Canon lenses . That is why I always switched it without thought of what I was putting on the lens.
But one day I noticed, that all my imagery taken is blurred. ALLL SHOTS!!!! Excuse me, but I couldn’t expect this result from Canon 5d Mark II with 70-200mm II L lens. Shocked!
Finally, I found out, that the filter DOES matter. And pretty much!
Look at the difference.
It is not motion blur, it’s what polarized filter does. Tiffen gave normal result, Zeikos a bit worse and Vivitar is outsider.
Filter DOES matter!!
Bare in mind and happy working.
