On my old blog of sin, I did an article on the polarized glasses much circulated on the net and which, at first sight, made service to a lot of people.
I’m going to talk here of polarization keeping the news of my old article I’ll here complete with a video and reorganize so that everyone can buy with confidence polarized glasses.
Before starting this article, can you answer this question is it you please. If you play the game, the answers will be as interesting for you as for me for my future articles.
1 talk about the basics of optics
The principle of the polarized glasses is quite simple to understand: it’s a polarizing film set between 2 layers of sunglasses. Basically these are sunglasses with a filter and more allows you to remove the reflections due to the reflection of the Sun on the water (for fishing) or on the ground (for the bike or hiking). This is to make it simple.
So what makes such large differences in price between brand Polarized Sunglasses Maui Jim, Rapala, Caperlan, JMC or same Rayban? What are the best polarized glasses?
I went to find out for you right to left including an optician. Then I’ll give my opinion on the subject with my experience. I tested several years pairs of polarized of several brands of the highest quality to the first price.
· The texture and the treatment of the glass.
Added to the different layers of glass, non-glare filters and other enabling a more comfortable vision. Also, as for the glasses, some lenses to strike less quickly than others.Suddenly, the brand of glass is to take into account.
· The laying of the polarizing filter.
It is actually a layer that must be evenly distributed over the entire surface of the glass. The way in which it is placed determines part of the price. The risk to glasses which we knows not really originally (I think of holiday shopping for fishing equipment) is to have deformities due to wrong setting of the filter which sometimes gives headaches. I have seen it at the edge of water for some pairs, after only a few hours…
· The finish, comfort, and especially the solidity of the mount.
And Yes, a beautiful light mount and unbreakable it is also paid. It well you must be good on your photos when you have a fish in the hands…
2. what color of glasses to choose?
· Yellow polarized
They are useful in overcast weather or during the night shots. I find ideal in regions where it is often gray as here in Lorraine. Ideal also for polarizing sur-lunettes because the fact of layer 2 glasses decreases slightly the brightness…
· Grey polarized
There are practical in the light, because they do not tire the eyes. Ideal therefore for fishermen to view areas or it is often sunny.
· Amber polarized
They have basically the same features I think the gray with a little more on the comfort of vision. It is a good compromise between the yellow polarized and gray glasses…
· The polarizing glasses pink
Normally they are equivalent to the yellow glasses… However, I’m not fan of these glasses…
· Blue polarizing lenses
They are quite rare, we use in the sea mainly. Some brands also adopted them for the ‘fun’ I think…
Caution : make sure you that your polarized glasses also contain a UV filter. Once more, attention to the colors fun you can find good glasses market.
3 advantages and disadvantages of a pair of polarizing sunglasses.
-See the bottom of the river and find the fish for fishing to view.
-They you less tired eyes to Sin AND to drive.
-See the fish before attacking it
– See swim his decoy or its streamer. Be honest when you spend € 15 in a decoy is also for the pleasure of seeing him swim. And I think that lures take fish from the moment they like us (streamers, fish swimmers,…). ” We are above all believe in his decoy or his fly to catch fish ” tells us we often… well I think that’s true!
– The big drawback is for those who already wear glasses to view but there are 4 solutions for fix that also have each of the pros and cons (Oh I’m going to lose you so this is just the solutions).
1 – You can buy polarizing clips that you install on your regular glasses.
2 – You can make polarizing glasses to your view, but it’s quite expensive especially if your view changes all the years.
3 – You can buy of on polarizing glasses you ask above your eyeglasses.
4 – You can equip you of lenses to your view to thus put your polarized glasses like everyone else.
4. While they choose polarized glasses? You want my opinion?
I’ve tested a lot of pairs of polarized, low quality “unbranded” purchased € 15 at my retailer to the highest range at loop to more than €100 the pair I have unfortunately lost during my trip to the USA.
There are plenty on the net
Having lost my glasses LOOP in the USA, I bought the polarized glasses not very expensive: The PROSKY 900 CAPERLAN found in Decathlon or here on fisherman.
There was talk of glasses of troubleshooting while waiting to meet me good or my view (time to decide what) and I always have them because I’m really happy.
And seen that I’m nearsighted I have chosen the solution ‘lenses’ and it does rather well.
5. VIDEO glasses and a polarizing filter TEST.
I’ll get ready for home to see some totoches here or I like going to “take the temperature” before you go fishing. It is important to observe their behavior the day to adapt my SIN for me then.
Come on I put you in the challenge to tell me how you see with the polarizing.
Open your eyes! Test with and without the glasses, then with a FILTER POLARISANT HOYA PRO 1 d in 67 MM on my SLR.
6.bonus: the new glasses CAPERLAN of Decathlon
These are 3 polarized models that exist among Caperlan.
- SURLUNETTE DUSKYBAY KTA
- SG CAPERLAN DUSKY BAY2 (the best value for money I know)
- CAPERLAN PROSKY SG 2
Having as many fly fishermen (look on the pictures) the old model I looked on these three new models:
-Do these three pairs of glasses have the same glass? We’re talking about fisherman confirmed for the model €25 but for me there is only the frame that changes?
Response from the head produced : ” even glass, same polarization.” But floating mount more convrante, on the inside of the glass anti-fog and anti-stain fat (for the anglers that use FAT to float their flies) on the outside. So technically, you don’t have all the same bezel’.
-Is this the same glass than previous models (which were famous among anglers view)?
The product manager’s response : ” No, different glass because it is polycarbonate: more resistant and better stability in time compared to the glass in acetate that was previously (detachment of the different layers that made up the glass)”
-Do these fishing sunglasses have the same glass found on the classic goggles for motorcycle or hiking?
The product manager’s response : ” no differences compared to the polarizing of other rays if the options I told you about highest and the form which may be less coverage because other sports did not necessarily this need .».
After a few hours of work, a new more complete on the polarized glasses article. Like all my articles on this blog, it is never closed because I am open to your criticisms, your constructive comments and especially your questions.
