The purpose of a UV lens filter is to prevent ultraviolet light
entering the camera.
UV filters have a big impact on the photographs taken with film
cameras. Black & white and colour film is sensitive to UV
light, so the use of a uv filter helps reduce haze in the photo.
The use of UV filters on a digital dslr camera or with cameras with
newer types of film has little effect. This is because digital cameras
and newer film types are insensitive to the UV light. A UV filter is
still a useful bit of kit though and can be used as a lens protector.
The quality of the UV filter used will effect the image
quality. Using coated and Multi coated filter types will help
reduce the impact. The coatings on the filter help reduce
lens flare and increase light transmission. Coated filters
are recommended but are more expensive.
