67mm UV Filter

Protect your lens and block excessive UV light with this UV Filter from Monoprice!

The primary use for a UV filter is in reducing the amount of ultraviolet light that reaches your film or digital image sensor. Older film was particularly susceptible to UV light, but newer film stocks are relatively immune, as are digital image sensors. However, at higher altitudes, the UV light can affect the resulting photograph.

Nowadays a UV filter is primarily used as a protective device for expensive lenses. When taking photos in outdoor environments, it is better to get dust, twigs, and rain on an inexpensive UV filter than on your expensive lens. Additionally, if the lens is dropped or smacked up against a wall, it is better to let the filter take the fall than your lens.

This filter fits a standard 67mm threaded filter mount on the end of a lens or filter adapter. It comes in a reusable, snap-latch plastic case with foam to protect the filter and keep it from sliding around inside the case.

Well constructed metal frame. I use these as a protector of the lens, remove when needed otherwise, will improve your experience since it is far less expensive to replace than the lens itself.

67mm UV filter *** UPDATE ***

  • JWARD,

Pros: None unfortaunely

Cons: Wrote a review and stated that the threads were too shallow to catch the 70-200mm L lens but worked on the 100mm Macro . . . . I was wrong. Although it seemed to work, I pulled it out the other day and it just fell off . . . . not enough thread, possibly just the one I recieved, possibly not. Just a heads up (the 67mm CPL - No problem)

See cons . . . . . .

67mm CPL Filter

  • JWARD,

Pros: Solid build, gets the job done. no apparent image degradation noticed.

Cons: none

Having purchased the 77 mm CPL version of this filter and being very satisfied with it's performance (and the price) I picked up the 67mm version for a couple of Canon L lenses. Can't be the price or it's performance. I imagine you could buy a more expensive "better" brand but I doubt you'll see a difference. For what a CPL filter is intended for this filter gets the job done and didn't cost an arm and a leg.

67mm UV Filter

  • JWARD,

Pros: no apparent degradation in image quality that I can see.

Cons: The thread is too shallow and will not fit (catch) on certain 67mm lenses

Due to the thread not apparently being deep enough to catch, this filter will not screw onto my Canon 70-200mm f/4.0 L lens. Purchased along with a CPL filter I can stack the UV on that but not directly to the lens. (which for protection is how you would want to mount it). It does fit on my Canon100mm f2.8 Macro although I'd be very wary of over tightening it. For less than 4 bucks and with no apparent degradation that I can see it seems to be a worthwhile purchase, just not on the Canon 70-200.
