The advantage of the linear polarizer over the circular is that you can dial in the precise amount of glare reduction that works for you. It can change a scene dramatically. The colors are richer too. I am not sure if post can do the glare reduction like a polarizer, but it is so easy on the camera. I guess I have always been one of those guys that says – get it right the first time – on the field. From my still days.
Ya, Mr. Moderator, if i were in a combat zone, trust me, I would be using something over that Zeiss glass – fer sure! But when I want the absolute best picture quality possible, outside of a polarizer, I remove everything from the lens and keep the glass clean. It’s a Dave thing.
