The UV filter from Hama is a must have for avid photographers!
Primarily developed to provide protection to the camera lens, the UV filter has a number of benefits. Not only will it filter UV rays up to 390mm and remove haze, it will also create an overall clearer, sharper image with a higher quality more professional appearance. Also, by covering the lens it gives added protection against grime and scratches that can cause the quality of images to otherwise significantly deteriorate. The protection of your camera lens can also help to increase the resale price of your camera when the time comes for an upgrade, because your lens is still in mint condition.
In addition the UV filter can improve the quality of your photos by making them clear and sharp in black and white and colour. Ultraviolet rays often make photos appear pale and grey; with UV filters the photos are richer in contrast, the filter absorbs the ultraviolet rays without effecting visible light balance. The UV filter can also help to improve the clarity of the film by reducing the amount of ultraviolet light that reaches it. Because the lens is coated on both sides, minimal flare is produced when the lens is pointed towards bright light.
At such good value for money and with such a huge improvement in image quality, you will wonder what you ever did without it.
