Kenko 49mm Digital MC
UV Filter: Kenko 49mm Digital MC UV Filter is a lightweight and durable
filter which is specifically designed for digital cameras and highly recommended
for outdoor shooting. The filter blocks the ultraviolet rays that makes photos
hazy and indistinct and deliver astounding sharpness and clarity without
affecting colour balance. The Multi coating is applied on both sides of filter
that ensures maximum light transmission and reduces reflection from the surface.
The filter protects the valuable
lenses and its front element from accidental
damages and scratches that can be caused from dirt, knocks, moisture and
fingerprints. Films and CCDs behind camera lens are sensitive to ultra-violet
rays (UV rays) which are invisible to our eyes but when they are recorded on the
CCD, the image might look bluish and the colour casts might thus be distorted.
The best use of this filter is for scenes such mountains, beaches, areas of
snow, and any other situations where there is a lot of UV light present. When
daylight shines through the sky, the particles reflect the short wavelengths of
the light more than the long one. This UV filter effectively helps eliminating
the lack of sharpness, absorbing UV that causes blue cast as well as reducing
distant haze that caused by UV radiation. This is an essential tool for
professional and non-professional photographers. It is compatible with a lens
that accepts 49mm filters.
