This Digital Filter kit contains the three most popular and essential
filters to go alongside with just about any Digital camera lens;
- UV Protection Filter
- C-PL Circular Polarizer Filter
- NDX8 Neutral Density Filter
- Bonus! A 4-pocket soft filter pouch included.
UV Filter - Absorbs the ultraviolet rays which often makes outdoor
photographs hazy and indistinct. A multi-purpose fine-weather filter for color
as well as black and white films. Also serves as a permanent lens protector.
Cir Polarizing Filter - Light rays which are reflected by any surface
become polarized and polarizing filters are used to select which light rays
enter your camera lens. PL (Linear Polarizing) and PL-CIR (Circular Polarizing)
filters have the same effect, but it is important that you choose the correct
version for your camera. They allow you to remove unwanted reflections from
non-metallic surfaces such as water, glass etc. They also enable colors to
become more saturated and appear clearer, with better contrast. This effect is
often used to increase the contrast and saturation in blue skies and white
clouds. HOYA's polarizing filters do not affect the overall color balance of a
NDX8 Neutral Density - ND filters reduce the amount of visible light
that enters the lens allowing the user to utilize wider apertures or slower
shutter speeds particularly in bright conditions. ND filters work especially
well for portraits by allowing the photographer to reduce the depth of field
producing pleasant background blur while keeping the subject in sharp focus.
