This polarizing filter reduces reflections from non-metallic
surfaces, darkens blue sky and increases color saturation. The desired effect
is achieved by rotating the filter. On a rangefinder camera you would have to
determine the optimal position of the filter by looking through it, then mount
it on the lens and orient it correctly by rotating the optical element.
This is a very uncommon Russian made 42mm slip-on filter; it fits some Kiev/Contax/Zorki/FED lenses - Jupiter-8, Jupiter-8M, and some others. It will mount on the outside of a 40.5mm filter ring.
Please ask me if you are not sure about your lens.
The filter comes in its plastic case.
