What is a UV Filter?
UV, or ultraviolet filters for camera lenses are used in photography for two main purposes; firstly to filter out ultraviolet rays from the sun and secondly, perhaps more commonly to protect the front element of a lens. All lenses have a fragile front optical element which is exposed to knocks, bumps and scratches. Damage to a lens can be costly and accidents can be minimised by attaching a screw-on glass UV filter.
