    Do Polarize Filter work the same with B&W films as with color. As far as removing glare or reflections off of glass. :scratch:

    Yes.

    Besides eliminating glare from glass, water, etc... it will still darken blue skies, and you'll probably notice that foliage in the sun will darken.

    With BW you can see exactly what it is that a polarizing filter is doing. The increase in color saturation seen on color film is due to the removal of the glare, and isn't actually increased by the filter itself.

    Use a pol stacked on a red #25 for super dark skies.
