Hi! I have a (Canon) EOS 80d and would like to get a circular polarizer filter for it. What size should I buy and how do I attach it to the camera? Thanks so much!

Hi Catherine,

Thanks for asking the Canon Geek about getting and attaching a polarizing filter to your Canon 80D. That's a fine camera. The good news is that you have a large selection of filters to choose from.

You don't want to choose the cheapest one just to save money. After all, the optics (the lens and a filter) that light has to travel through before it hits the 80D sensor plays a big part in the quality of your photographs.

Attaching The Filter To Your 80D

The CPL filter will simply screw on the end of the lens that is attached to your 80D. Don't overtighten it. Screwing the filter onto your lens too snugly can get it stuck and there are times when you don't always want to have your filter attached.

Once attached properly, you'll have the ability to rotate the outer ring of the rotating filter to add or subtract the amount of polarizing effect you desire.

80D Filter Size

The size of the filter depends on the specific lens you have attached to your camera. You can read the size needed off the front end of the lens you are using.

If you have the standard EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II kit lens the filter size for your 80D is 55mm.
If you have the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens the filter size for your 80D is 67mm. The two articles linked below will help you even more.
