I'm afraid you're gonna lose allot of detail in the shadow area's

I have used it quite a bit since testing the H3b with protune and cam raw wb, these 2 videos were both 2.7k with CP and pt on cam raw. Both have been graded so some shadow detail is lost by raised contrast and other settings compared to raw file but I haven't noticed it effecting the image too much.

It's pretty od for me to see people using CP on such a wide angle lens. They're not made for that purpose. First of you would need to do your recording in Narrow to get any sort of consistency of the darkening effect and then you would need to keep recording aiming in one direction as if you go round with the camera it will produce very inconsistent colours especially in the sky. CP works best at 90 degrees to the sun so mind that when recording. If you don't contain sky in your footage and just want to eliminate some reflections then go for it but in my opinion ND or grad ND would be a much better choice here.

GoPro CPL filter

Postby AUsome » Wed Apr 16, 2014 2:54 am

Don't have time to go through all the posts, but after reading the first couple of pages, thought I'd post where I found my cpl lens filter/cover. Got it off ebay:

Hopefully, this will help someone...or that it hasn't already been found by others and posted already..if so, sorry for the duplication. If not, then for under $10, it is a great filter and provides good protection when not being used...and will accept other 37 mm filters as the ring IS machined for screw-in 37 mm filters.
