How Many Scratches On A CPL Filter Are Too Many Su 8f9e981adb9260d221f125557e0559a3

Does it matter if you have scratches on your photographic filters?

I’ve been asking myself this question a lot over the last few months as my circular polarising filter was a mess. I hadn’t noticed any decrease in quality but it was playing on my mind so I sucked it up and bought a new one.


But how much difference did it make?

I bought a new one

I made a video with example photos. As you can see in the thumbnail from the video, my old filter was a mess.

The only problems I had were the filter had gotten hard to twist and on rainy days, it was hard to remove the water. I hadn’t noticed any difference in the image quality other than on very wet days. Watch my latest video to find out how it compared to see if I wasted £50 on a new one.
