Widean­gle vi­gnetting

Amateur Photographer - - Technique -

A prob­lem with some drop-in filter sys­tems, par­tic­u­larly those that re­quire po­laris­ers to be at­tached to the front of the holder, is that vi­gnetting can oc­cur when shoot­ing with a lens wider than 20mm. This can be frus­trat­ing if you’ve just forked out on a 16-35mm lens, but you can take steps to avoid it. If you have a filter sys­tem with front at­tach­ing po­lariser, with some you can re­move the third filter slot so you only have two slots avail­able. This is am­ple for most but may be prob­lem­atic if you of­ten find your­self us­ing three drop-in fil­ters along­side a po­lariser. If this is the case, look for a holder where the po­lariser at­taches be­hind the sheet fil­ters.
