I have a Canon EOS 7D camera with a 100-400 f4.5-5.6L IS USM lens. Wondering about the best filters to buy to help me take wildlife in circumstances where the sun is behind the subject. Any recommended types (e.g. polarising) / products?
Hi. My name is*****'m a camera repair technician with over 20years in the business and I'll be glad to help you with your question today. A circular polarizer will cut down on some of the glare but won't completely eliminate it. Your best bet for that situation is to expose for the subject and "fix" the image in post production. You may want to consider using a UV/Haze filter in front. This is mainly a protective measure in case of impact. It's a lot less expensive to replace a $30 filter than a $300 lens element or #100 polarizer.Please provide a positive Rating so that I may be credited for my efforts. If I can be of further assistance, please ask rather than leave a negative response. Thank You Rick
