Tiffen 43mm UV Protection Filter
Tiffen 43mm UV Protector[/ b]
This filter protects your lens and absorb UV light. Film and video are more sensitive to ultraviolet light than our eyes. This sensitivity is reflected as a bluish haze in images, especially in images taken from high altitudes and over 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 used primarily 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 damaging the lens you can screw a filter in front of the lens. You would rather replace a filter instead of a lens. A UV filter can remain permanent on the lens because there is almost no light loss.
- Provides basic protection against UV light
- Popular protective filter
- Protects your photo and video camera lens against dust, dirt, fingerprints, scratches and other types of damage.
Having purchased a pocket sized camera, a Lumix LX100 I noticed that the lens had a 43mm screw thread which I didn't expect. OK, so I needed filters for it and found this UV filter on the Photospecialist website. |
There are many debates if UV filters are necessary but for me the main point is that it protects the lens itself and if damaged through carelessness it could cost a lot of money to fix, so, well done for having this filter, I wish there were more in the range apart from one other.
