Tiffen 30.5mm UV Haze 1 Filter
This filter protects your lens and absorbs undesired UV light. Film and video are more sensitive to ultraviolet light than our eyes are, this UV light shows up in your images as a bluish haze, especially in images that are taken from high altitudes and pictures that include large bodies of water.
UV filters are the most commonly used filters, they often provide better quality pictures. However that is not the reason why most photographers purchase these filters. These filters are primarily used to protect the lenses. Scratches on the lens surface are extremely annoying and sometimes visible in the photo. In order to reduce the chance of scratches photographers place a UV filter at the front of the lens. The cost of replacing a filter is much lower then replacing an expensive lens. A UV filter can remain permanently on the lens because it causes hardly any light loss.
