Thread: CPL filters

  1. #1

    Default CPL filters

    Need to clear my confusion

    is it possible to use a CPL filter that's bigger or smaller than the size of the len?

    Say, using a 77mm CPL filter on a 58mm len or 58mm CPL filter on a 55mm len..is it not advisable?

    can anyone help? Thks
