    Tamron UV filters are beleived to block UV light, So for the newcomers to photography let's first discuss about what UV light is and why you would want to block it.

    The "traditional" visible spectrum runs from red to violet. Red light has the longest wavelength and violet light has the shortest. Infrared are those with a longer wavelength of light than red, and light with a shorter wavelength than violet is called ultra violet or UV. The wavelength of light is measure in units of nanometers (nm), and 1nm is a billionth of a meter (that's a US billion or 1000 million, not a UK billion which is a million million!). Light shorter in wavelength than about 400nm is called ultra violet, light longer in wavelength than 700nm is called infrared.     INFRARED 700nm ........................................................................................................... ULTRA VIOLET 400nm So now we know what UV light is, why we want to block it? Well the answer lies in the way that color film works. There are fundamentally three color sensitive layers, one sensitive to red light, one to green light and one to blue light. The blue layer not only responds to blue light, but also to UV light, so if there is a lot of UV around the blue sensitive layer gets extra exposure and the final image takes on a blue color. Since film isn't normally sensitive to infrared, you do not need an infrared blocking filter. Interestingly though, digital sensors are infrared sensitive and most digital cameras have built in infrared blocking filter.  

    Now there isn't usually a huge amount of UV around at sea level. There is some (that's what gives you a suntan or a sunburn) but most of it is dispersed by the atmosphere. However as you gain altitude, for example by going up a mountain, the amount of UV increases. Under these conditions a UV filter can be used to prevent a blue cast in photographs.

    Since UV filters look clear and neutral to the unprotected eye, some people also use them as a protective filter which they leave on their lens at all times. Some people think this is a good idea, other question the wisdom placing a $20 filter in front of a $500 lens and possibly affecting image quality. Both schools of thought have some valid points. It's your choice.
