    What the diference between the Hoya Pro 1 and a warming polarizing filter? Is one recommended over the other? Are CPF's used stacked ontop of a UV filter? Is a CPF used ALL the time, or basically just for landscapes?
     
  2. Some people use CPLs all the time - not sure why, but they do. To me it's good for specific situations only, otherwise it's just a light killer.

    The "warm" polarizer is a combination CPL and 81A - much more "warming" than a 1A or 1B filter.

    The "regular" CPLs sometimes have a cold tone appearance (some of the older ones were terrible). I use a "wideband" Hoya CPL sometimes. It's pretty neutral and works for me.
