Polarizing Filter

A Polarizing filter is a glass filter fitted to a camera that only allows light traveling in a certain direction to pass through to the camera’s lens. The result is a reduction in glare and reflections in a scene. Polarizing filters can be interactively rotated on the lens to achieve the desired glare or reflection reduction.

Mechanical Shutter

A mechanical shutter is used to expose a camera’s entire film sensor to light simultaneously, avoiding the problems produced by rolling shutters. In film work, the only type of shutter is a mechanical shutter, but in digital sensors, images are often scanned one horizontal line at a time, reducing processing overhead but introducing rolling shutter artifacts.
