Cross Polarization: Are linear and circular polarizers compatible?

by tjt263   Last Updated February 01, 2018 21:18 PM

Can cross-polarization be achieved with two linearly polarized (flash) lamps; one either side of a circularly polarized lens?

Lens attachments tend to be circularly polarized, while the PVA sheets available online tend to be linearly polarized.

I'm trying to tame some surface reflections and I'd like to know before I get my hopes up and invest too much time & effort into trying to fit a square peg in a round hole.
