If there is only one accessory you will purchase for the lens of your camera or camcorder, this should be the one.
- A UV filter serves to protect your lens from all dust, dirt, scratches and fingerprints.
- It also absorbs the Ultraviolet rays of the sun thereby reducing or eliminating distortion. The ultraviolet-blocking filter effectively reduces or eliminates photographic haze in areas where the atmospheric conditions contain a heavy concentration of dust particles, water droplets, and pollution. Such conditions - often found in mountainous or coastal regions, and industrial areas - scatter light and produce a bluish cast that causes a lack of color, contrast and overall image quality. Filtering out ultraviolet light enables the capture of vivid colors and sharper detail.
