Ok so I'm very aware of the issues of using a CPL on a C10-22 I just want to see some pics and what CPL you are using when all the way down to 10mm. I would really like to get a BW, but funding for that right now isn't in the budget since I just bought the lens and UV filter. I did however find a Quantry, or however that's spelled in a bargain bin for 20 bucks at a local shop and think that might get me by for a month or two until I can get a good one. Does anyone have one of these? It looks really thick, like 1/4 in. thick and wondering if you're getting vignetting with it? Oh, I'm not set on the BW, so I would like to see what everyone is using and if they're happy with it. Thanks in advance!

It ain't a pretty shot, but it's one I took for another thread a while back to show 10mm w/ CPL. 10mm on the Canon 10-22 with a B+W Kaesemann 77mm CPL:

The more concerning thing, to me, is that you tend to get some odd patterning in things like blue skies when using a CPL at that focal length. I don't have any good examples, atm, since I've mostly stopped using the CPL on the UWA. Hopefully some others will have some, though.

I guess, for $20, you wouldn't be out much if it doesn't work; I have a Quantaray that I picked up with my first kit that worked fairly well. Haven't used it in some time, though.

As I posted in your other thread, don't get all hung up on the UWA issue with a polarizer...it does much more than help out with skies/clouds. There will be times when you don't have any sky in the picture, there will be times when you'll be shooting in vertical format, etc...all depends on the composition and subject matter. Folks in general make way too much of a big deal about it. Using a polarizer is like using any other filter...know when to use it, and know how to use it. Just don't get too hung up on it...

Here's a shot taken at 17mm on a 5D2, using the B+W Kaesemann F-Pro CPL...no sky whatsoever in the image. The CPL was used as a mild ND filter, to remove glare/shine from rocks, and to enhance the sandstone reflections in the water:

This test shot was taken with the same polarizer, this time using a 10-22 at 10mm on a 30D. Here, you can see the sky "issue", but in this case I think it helps the composition with the way in which the clouds tend to come into the frame from the left and circle around to the right:

I haven't used any of the B+W CPLs but my $120 Hoya Pro 1D 77mm cpl is quite good. I wonder what the extra hundred or two by getting a B+W would give me.

Poorer? :)

Don't know how the Hoyas are built; B+W is anodized brass and sealed against the elements. Only things that come off the top of my mind without better knowledge of the Hoya.

I get the sky part, I was just wondering what if any vignetting problems people are having without using a slim CPL. The one I looked at was waaay thick. Plus just wanted to see some pics with different CPL's on. I've been using Hoya's on all my other stuff, but I went into a local shop and they showed me what the difference between a Hoya and B+W and the difference with the test they showed me was crazy good.

The B+W F-Pro polarizer will not vignette on the 10-22 @10mm...no need to pay more for the slim version. Also, the B+W slims are not available with brass rings. Can't tell you much about Hoya polarizers, except that some of their models are prone to coming apart unexpectedly. Plenty of threads on that topic if you do a search...

I tried a cheap polarizer from a bargain bin once and it gave me horrible photos. threw it away as I couldn't justify giving it to somebody as it was that bad. spent the money and got a good one and it made a huge difference. So if you try it and get bad photos it could be just the filter.
