Filters
• Filters intended for special-effects photography may 
interfere with autofocus or the electronic rangefinder.
• The D800 can not be used with linear polarizing filters. 
Use the C-PL or C-PLII circular polarizing filter instead.
• Use NC filters to protect the lens.
• To prevent ghosting, use of a filter is not recommended 
when the subject is framed against a bright light, or when 
a bright light source is in the frame.
• Center-weighted metering is recommended with filters 
with exposure factors (filter factors) over 1× (Y44, Y48, 
Y52, O56, R60, X0, X1, C-PL, ND2S, ND4, ND4S, ND8, ND8S, 
ND400, A2, A12, B2, B8, B12). See the filter manual for 
details.
