I need to obtain a 77mm circular polarizing filter, and I've read some stuff suggesting that Breakthrough Photography makes some pretty great stuff, but it's pretty expensive, about $150.00 for a 77mm filter. Anybody have any experience that can challenge, or vouch for, the quality of this product? Or, of course, suggest an less expensive alternative.
It looks like they are a very legitimate manufacturer of filters. And most of their claim of having the most neutral and sharpest CPL seem to be substantiated by the comparisons on their website. And the samples they present show that compared to no filter, they are still a little off. But compared to B&W and Formatt, they are much more neutral than either of the two. Their competitors mention that their "neutral" density tints can be fixed in post processing. The question I have: Is the extra filter cost worth the savings from less post processing? If it is, you may want to put your money down. If it isn't, some of the better less expensive brands will do fine.
