A fairly new filter company, called Breakthrough Photography, just launched what they are calling “the world’s sharpest and most color neutral circular polarizer”, and they’re even making a version specifically for Canon’s CINE lens lineup. So far, here’s what we know about it:

  • American-made CPL film called CrystalVision®
  • SCHOTT B270® Optical glass Made in Germany
  • 16-layers of multi-resistant coatings
  • Nano coatings to repel elements
  • Ultra-slim Weather-sealed Brass “Traction Frame”
  • 25 Year Guarantee
  • 11 sizes from 39mm to 105mm ($129 to $199)

For the next 9 days they’re doing a Kickstarter project, offering up to $50 off while supplies last: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/breakthrough/x3-circular-polarizer/

On a side note, about 5 weeks ago we received a neutral density filter from Breakthrough, and we weren’t given much information other than a note saying “The X3 ND is the worlds sharpest and most color neutral ND filter, check it out.”. After quite a few comparison tests against a bunch of other neutral density filters here at the Canon Rumors international headquarters, we found their claim held true.
