Lens Filters and Protectors
A circular polarizer (CPL) is a great addition to any photographer’s gear bag. It is inexpensive but can have a big effect on the right type of scene. A circular polarizer effectively cuts down reflections on water, making it an ideal accessory for seascapes and other images that contain bodies of water. It has the same effect for other highly reflective surfaces such as glass or polished steel. Furthermore, it adds contrast and saturation to a clear sky, giving it a nice-looking deep blue.
UV and protector filters, on the other hand, are used as a way to shield the front lens element from scratches and smudges without visible degradation of image quality.
Our selection of CPL, UV, and protector filters all have slim profiles to keep the size down and avoid vignetting even when used on wide-angle lenses. They are digital multi-coated to keep unwanted flare and reflections down and prevent loss of contrast when shooting in sunny outdoor conditions.
