This is a vintage 52mm PL lens filter from Kenko. The filter is in excellent condition with no blemishes on the glass. The metal rim is also unmarked. The polarizing ring turns freely and it is clean. It is supplied in the original clear plastic case which shows light scratches and signs of wear, but no cracks or damage and it still holds together perfectly.
A polarizing / polarising filter is usually used in order to darken skies, manage reflections, or suppress glare from the surface of lakes or the sea. Because reflections (and sky-light) tend to be at least partially linearly-polarized, a linear polarizer can be used to change the balance of the light in the photograph. The rotational orientation of the CPL filter is adjusted for the preferred artistic effect.
This Kenko 52mm PL filter will be sent well packed and promptly. My postage charges are very fair and I do not make money on shipping.
I am new to Etsy after having been a seller on eBay (and before that Yahoo Auctions) for many years with a 100% rating of well over 2000 sales. I specialise in cameras, camera lenses and filters and other camera gear, but I will also add other vintage items over time too. Thank you for looking :-)
