View Full Version : Haze filters

On my recent trip to China, we sailed up the Yangtze river and the haze was very prominent, seemed to me to be pollution.
Do haze filters work?

I've never found them to be of the slightest use in combating haze!

I have to agree with Stephen. The only thing I have found to work depending on the light is a polarising filter.

You could have used the haze to your advantage for early morning atmospheric shots. Like Gerry I sometimes found a polarising filter helped but not consistently.

Thanks guys.
Dennis, I di use the haze in my daytime shot of Shanghai.

Yes, I remember it as being much better than anything I got in Shanghai. Links below show a couple on Yangtze where the haze was beneficial. Not sure if I should show these as they were taken on bridge camera before I moved to E-30.
