Las Vegas, NV—Since 2015, Breakthrough Photography has developed top-quality filters for high-end professional applications, as well as a lineup of quality tripods. Moreover, the company’s ingenious X4 dark 3-stop circular polarizer filter is a stellar example of its products.
Breakthrough Photography X4 Dark 3-Stop CP Filter
The innovative filter combines their X4 ND 3-stop neutral density filter and X4 dark CPL filters into a single slim-profile filter. As a result, the new filter completely eliminates vignetting with wide-angle lenses due to the “stacking effect” of mounting two separate filters.
It also simultaneously provides an 8x (3-stop) reduction in light transmission; this allows the use of wider apertures for selective focus effects. What’s more, the filter offers the advantages of a fully adjustable circular polarizer in minimizing reflections; enhancing saturation for dramatic skies and foliage; as well as reducing haze in landscapes.
Furthermore, for color neutral performance, the multicoated Breakthrough Photography X4 dark 3-stop circular polarizer filter is mounted in a durable frame with knurled edges for a better grip.
In addition, the filter uses world-renowned Schott B270 optical glass. It is also Nano coated to resist smudges and facilitate cleaning. Further, it provides front threads for adding optional accessories. The 77mm filter retails for $199.
Located in San Francisco, California, the start-up company is a filter research and manufacturing firm. The company designs, manufactures as well as sells the sharp neutral density, ND; UV, ultraviolet; and CPL, circular polarizer/linear filters to more than 180 countries.
