Precision 6 Piece HD Multi Coated Glass Filter Kit (55mm)
The Precision 6 Piece HD Multi Coated Glass Filter Kit includes a UV filter, a Circular Polarizer filter, a WRM Filter and a Neutral Density filter; Also a cap keeper, front lens cap and a filter wallet. This kit provides everything necessary to get started with filtration for your digital camera.
***This filter features a High Definition Multi-layer Super Film Coating, which provides 98-99% light transmission and helps to reduce internal flare and reflections. It is constructed from super high-quality optical glass for notable image clarity and is set in a durable aluminum filter ring.
The UV filter is a coated filter with a slim mounting ring. This makes it useful for wide-angle lenses to avoid potential vignetting. Also, the UV filter itself is a general use, clear filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light. No additional coloration or contrast is provided, allowing you to pair this filter with others. It is also useful as a general protective filter to leave on lenses at all times. Filters help to reduce dust and moisture from reaching your lens element and provide additional protection in case of drops or situations where scratching could occur.
A circular polarizer filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.
A circular polarizer only differs from a linear polarizer in that it contains a quarter wave plane in addition to the linear polarizing filter. The addition of this quarter wave plane is to circularly polarize the linearly polarized light for the use of auto focus and exposure functions. Due to how the light is broken down and filtered with a linear polarizer, auto focus and exposure accuracy become skewed during use. When the light becomes circularly polarized, it permits the use of these functions.
A neutral density filter has several uses and offers the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results. ND filters appear gray and reduce the amount of light reaching the film. They have no effect on color balance. This filter offers a filter factor of 0.9, equivalent to 3 stops of light.
All the necessary must-have lens filters in one convenient and affordable package.
HD Ultra Slim UV filter:
To protect eyes and equipment from dangerous ultra-violet rays.
Performs as overall protection against dust, elements, scratching and impact that otherwise would land first on a far more valuable lens.
HD Ultra Slim Polarizing filter:
Reduces amount of light entering camera.
Allows shooting through glass or around water.
Eliminates overexposure when aperture cannot be stopped down further.
HD Ultra Slim WRM filter:
HD Corrects color when shooting under fluorescent lighting, avoiding greenish effect.
Gives natural color to your images.
HD Ultra Slim ND8 filter:
Reduces or modifies intensity of all wavelengths or colors of light equally, giving no changes in hue of color rendition.
Greater flexibility to change the aperture, exposure time and/or motion blur of subject in different situations and atmospheric conditions.
