The Kenko 49mm RealPro Circular Polarising Filter is designed to give professional-grade results. Treated with a water-resistant anti-stain coating, the filter is easy to clean and long-lasting. It delivers maximum light transmission with minimal reflections, and its ultra-thin frame prevents vignetting effects even when used with super-wide angle lenses. The frame is also designed with a knurling edge for a secure grip, meaning the filter won't slip out of the hand.
The REALPRO series is designed according to the highest Kenko quality control standards, and developed with the benefit of its extensive experience in producing photographic filters. The REALPRO series aims to meet the demands of professional and amateur photographers everywhere.
Produce your own unique images
The REALPRO Circular PL filter is used to reduce unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water or glass, as well as increasing saturation and contrast in the sky and objects. For example, you can enhance saturation of the sky in order to accentuate the presence of white clouds, even if the atmosphere is hazy.
The filter that stays clear
One important feature of the REALPRO series is its Anti-Stain Coating (ASC), which represents a new generation of Kenko coating technology. Thanks to a new formula of coating material, the surface of the REALPRO filter will cause moisture and water droplets to bead up and slip away, leaving the filter clean. You will therefore not need to clean the filter very often, making maintenance easier and safer. Due to the smooth filter surface, dust and smudges do not stick to the glass and can be wiped away smoothly and easily. This is a great feature for photographers who often find themselves shooting outdoors in rough weather conditions.
A clear and sharp image
Kenko's Anti-Reflection Multi Coating technology provides maximum light transmission and protection from flares and ghosting.
Use with any lens, with no loss of light. The REALPRO C-PL uses an ultra-thin frame to avoid vignetting effects on wide and super-wide angle lenses.
Knurling edge frame
The frame of the REALPRO C-PL is equipped with a knurling surface to prevent slipping, making attachment and removal easy and stress-free.
Black almite frame
To reduce unwanted reflections, the REALPRO C-PL filter adopts a black aluminum satin-finish almite frame. The satin finish increases friction between fingers and frame for quick operation, while the satin black minimises internal reflections.
To reduce the internal light reflections off the edge of the filter glass, Kenko uses black-rimmed glass. This involves treating the outer rim of the filter glass plate with a specific black ink to prevent any leaking of light.
UV protected case

Every REALPRO filter comes with durable, re-usable plastic case with UV-Cut protection, lengthening the life of the filter by shielding it from UV rays.
