Kenko rangefinder polarising filter
Kenko Rangefinder Polariser
Robert White has managed to source a solution to one of the biggest bains of the rangefinder photographer’s life …using a polarising filter. This clever little device made by Kenko will work with any rangefinder camera and consists of a pair of calibrated polarising filters, one of which fits on the lens and the other into the accessory shoe of the camera. Both filters are numbered around their edge from 1-12. By previewing the polarisation effect through the filter in the accessory shoe a note can be made of it’s position against an index and be transferred to the polarising filter on the lens that has a similar index …simple yet effective. Also available is a ‘monocle’ style viewing polariser that allows the photographer to preview the polarising effect independently of the camera if they wish.

The accessory mount polariser costs £30, the monocle viewing polariser £18 and lens polarisers start from £41. Filters sizes from 39-82mm are available.

Excellent a great solution to a frustrating problem.
So, if I wanted to use this thingie with the 12mm, I could have the "monocle", the viewfinder AND the spirit level all lined up...now THAT'S a niche market!
