Hi, I have been watching a DVD on using filters in the landscape by Adam Barker and he uses a Warm Circular Polariser, now I no how to use a polarising filter but not sure about this one,anyone used one or got views on this? Do they make a great difference in landscapes?
Can you do the same in PP for the same result?
Many Thanks
Russ


Many Thanks,
Russell.

It will, basically, do the same thing you can in post by increasing the white balance toward the 'warm' side; I've got a combination warming cpl + variable ND filter and I wish I Had simply purchased the one without warming effect.

It can occasionally impart too much of the effect and then I have to dial it back in post, anyway.

Here this will explain the difference of warm vs neutral, which should help you in your decision.

I do a lot of high altitude landscape work and prefer to use the Moose Hoya filter that is shown at
Http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …_Moose_Warm_Cir​cular.html (external link).

Having said that I will admit that I have been chastised severly in the past for using the warming CPL. Everyone likes to point out I can do the same thing in post. I can also make my personal argument that I like the images I get and little if any tweaking as far as warming is needed IMO. I can also make the argument that if an image is too warm, perhaps due to use of the filter, then I can back it off. At one time Moose Peterson encouraged the use of this filter for landscapes, which he shoots, but he now discourages it use and uses essentially 100% Nikon gear, including filters.

I don't think there's anything inherently *wrong* with using one; I just think that in this day and age (digital) it's sort of redundant/extraneous.

If you use one and get the results you like with little fuss, who can argue with results?

They certainly aren't cheap :p I definitely like their products and they're nice if you can afford them; but they don't fit in everyone's budget. Especially now days.

The quicker way to "warm" any image is to just set your WB setting in the camera to 'Cloudy'; unfortunately, if you forget that you default to that, and then stick a warming filter on as well, things come out a little....yellow.

I also have the Moose Peterson warming CPl filter. Looking back I wish I'd got a regular cpl, but it is handy for when I'm shooting video. I like the results I get as I like stuff a little on the warm side.

But imho, I'd get a regular one.

I have been thinking about purchasing the Hoya Moose CPL for my Canon 28 1.8 lens. I have an old CPL that is the same mm as the 28.

I love the 28 and it is on my Canon 60D a high % of the time.

How would the Hoya Moose work on my lens/camera combo?
