The Zeta series debuted in 2009 after a long, exhaustive effort by Kenko to offer the highest end filters. Adopting the newly developed the ZR coat, which achieves one of the world’s best surface reflectivity levels of 0.3% or less (or 0.6% or less with C-PL of low-temperature multi-coat specification), the Zeta series cuts reflection on the filter’s glass surface to eliminate flare and ghosting. All Zeta filters use glass material of the highest quality, and their frame, which retains the filter glass, ensures the maximum degree of flatness.

<Key Features>
EXTRA THIN, EXTRA LIGHT 
Only 0.8mm Thin Glass, 10g Feather Light Filter 
Zeta EX uses a specially polished 4 layer thin glass and ultra thin frame combination making it wide-angle lens compatible. Even with being this thin, the Zeta EX still has the front screw on function for attaching a lens cap. The super light weight mechanically benefits certain AF lenses. 

EXTRA BRIGHT 
High Transparency Polarizing Film 
Zeta EX transmits as much as 25% more light through the polarizing film, giving the photographer about 1 stop more light than a standard circular polarizer.

EXTRA ANTI-REFLECTIVE 
ZR ( Zero Reflection ) Super Multi-Coating 
This innovative coating will not interfere with any color or light transmission. Reflections are eliminated by allowing light to enter the filter at virtually any angle.

EXTRA SMOOTH GLASS 
Nano Glass Technology 
Our Nano Glass Technology creates an ultra smooth surface from the finest particles of glass, making it stain and scratch resistant without any effect to the image.

PL filters achieve their greatest effect of eliminating glare when used at a 30-40 degree angle to a reflective surface (like glass or water). At midday when the sun is directly overhead, or at a 90 degree angle, the filter will have the least effect. These effects are easily visible by rotating the filter and looking through the viewfinder of the camera. Keep in mind that you will first need to adjust the polarizing filter before setting the exposure controls.

For deepening the color of the blue sky and making the clouds jump out at you, hold the camera at a right angle to the sun and take the photo when the sun is at a 30-40 degree angle in the sky.

When photographing distant subjects, scenery sometimes appears bluish. This is also caused by light polarization. Using the polarizing filter will help to greatly reduce the softness caused by atmospheric haze.

There are a variety of ways in which the use of polarizing filters can help you capture that perfect shot. Reducing the haze and enhancing colors may seem like simple effects, but once used, these effects will prove to be invaluable to photographers at any level of interest.

General care and handling of the photographic filter

1. Use filter carefully and always keep it clean. When cleaning use cleaning tissue or cleaning cloth. But before that remove as much dust and dirt as possible from the lens with a blower or brush.
2. Avoid unnecessary cleaning of your filter.
3. Filter is made of glass. When it is broken glass fragments may injure.
4. Do not disassemble filter by yourself.
5. When the filter is not attached to the lens, store it away from sharp objects. They may damage the filter glass.
6. Keep filter away from children.
7. Keep filters in plastic hard-sided case or filter pouch.
8. Keep filters dry and away from direct sun light.
9. Avoid storage in high humidity environment. Moisture drops due to the high humidity or dew on the filter can burn the coating and create traces on the glass surface that can be hardly wiped off.
