The Lindsey Optics Brilliant² Rota-Pol is designed to fit 4” x 5.65” cine matte boxes and allow simple and effective rotation of the included 138mm Round Brilliant-Pol Circular Polarizer. The large 138mm polarizer is useful even with wider angle lenses and large zoom lenses
Rotation of the polarizer can be done by spinning either of the two thumb wheels by hand or with a motor mounted on the 1/4–20 thread in the handle.
Our superior mechanical design includes an all-aluminum main gear in which the138mm Brilliant Pol Circular Polarizer filter is mounted. That main gear rests on internal rollers for smooth rotation and is driven by Delrin™ thumb wheels with standard 0.8 pitch gear teeth for use with motorized wireless remote systems.
Now you can have a rotating polarizer in your matte box, even if your matte box does not have a rotating filter stage. Even in matte boxes with a rotating stage, our Rota-Pol is quick to insert in any matte box that accepts 4" x 5.65" filters. Once installed, it's easy to adjust and can't cause any interference with rods in a rod mounted matte box..
Normally delivered with a mounted 138mm Circular Polarizer, It can also be delivered with a Linear Polarizer on request. Note that the "Circular" in Circular Polarizer refers to the polarizer itself, not to the rotating polarizer (rota-pola) functionality of the mount.
As with all circular polarizers, the Brilliant Pol Circular Polarizers are constructed with two internal components, a linear polarizer that will reduce reflections when rotated and a "quarter wave plate" that spins the light entering the camera lens, preventing any cross polarization inside the camera and lens system.
Lindsey Optics Brilliant-Pol Polarizing Filters are constructed using Schott B270 "water white" optical glass. They are ground and polished to be very flat and have 38% transmission, resulting in a 1.5 stop light reduction.
Brilliant-Pol Polarizers are extremely efficient at reducing reflections on glass, water and other reflective objects. They also can saturate blue sky and increase color saturation in landscapes by reducing micro-reflections in the scene.
A Rota-Pol polarizing filter is sometimes called Rota-Pola or RotaPola in the cinematography world . . . it's the same type of product.
The Brilliant² Rota-Pol rotating polarizer works with Arri™, Bright Tangerine™, Chrosziel™ and Vocas™ and other professional matte boxes. It does not work with RedRock Micro™ matte boxes.
