Ultraviolet (UV) Filtering
UV filter are designed to block the Ultraviolet light passing through the lens to the cameras recording sensor. Humans can’t see UV light but some image capturing devices can, especially in older cameras. UV filters were created to prevent these unwanted wavelengths from degrading image quality. This diffraction causes a lack of sharpness, reducing overall image contrast and ultimately the quality. The impact is most significant in arial photography where images would be hazy and also often have a blue tint. The solution was to add UV filters to cameras which resulted in sharper images, with increased contrast, reduced haze, and blue tint. Today, UV filtering technology has progressed dramatically. For vibrant images, with true-to-life colours that pop, the K&F UV filter allows you to now capture the beauty of a scene in all its glory.
One of the most common reason people use a UV filter on their cameras now days, is to protect the lens’ front element from damage. A UV filter serves as a layer of defence for your lens’ front element and the precious coatings on it. Having a filter in front of the lens guards it against dirt, scratches, fingerprints, and accidental damage. It's easy to forget how vulnerable camera lenses are, the tiniest scratch or smudge can negatively impact image quality drastically. With the K&F UV filter, you can be rest assured that your lens will get the added protection it needs without a loss in picture quality. This is especially important when you're traveling to remote locations or shooting in harsh environments, where your gear is exposed to the elements. Invest in the K&F Concept Premium Glass filter today and see the difference while protecting your lens.
Picture quality is one of the most important aspects of photography or videography. Every creator, photographer or videographer wants to capture stunning images that are clear, sharp, and vibrant. One of the main reasons creators are hesitant or even reluctant to add a UV filter to their equipment is the fear of image quality loss. Adding any glass in front of your lens can add to additional diffraction and loss of light. Not all UV filters are made equal. There is a reason why there is such a vast price range in UV filters. This premium Nano-X series filter from K&F has been developed with the current highest resolutions available. From the Japanese optical glass to Multilayer coatings, and most importantly, the many years of knowledge and experience K&F Concept has gathered and combined to produce this premium product. You are going to struggle to find a better performing high-end UV filter at this exceptional price point.
Why 28 layers of coatings matter
Multilayer Resistance Coating (MRC) provide several effects and benefits to the properties of the filter. The most obvious and important factor is the filters’ ability to remove UV light. This filter is also coated to be hydrophobic. This means that the filter is designed to repel water. Water beads up and runs off the face struggling to adhere to the filter surface. This has two advantages; it is easier to clean as dirt or dust runs off as it clings to the water instead of the filter. Secondly water spots are less likely to ruin your photos as large areas of soft focus, where drops overlap your subject. So if you are shooting in the rain, mist or fog, or if you at a waterfall or waterpark, a splashed lens will not ruin rest of your day.
The 28 Multi-layer Coatings also boast scratch-resistant technology. With a 4 times stronger glass in combination with scratch-resistant coatings this filter is designed to last you for many years of clear shooting. As most cameras don’t live in a studio environment and are used out and about, you can have additional peace of mind that the filter is less likely to be damaged or scratched in frequent daily use. Another key benefit of the Multi-layer Coatings is amazing light transmission at 99.6%. With double sided polishing during the manufacturing stage, you won't be robbed of precious light when shooting. The advantage of the high transmission of light is the ability of the glass to effectively reduce reflections. Filters with poor light transmission or untreated to reduce reflections can result in light bouncing between the filter and the lens’ front element, resulting in “ghosting”. Whether you're capturing landscapes, portraits, or anything in between, the K&F UV filter will help you achieve stunning results.
