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.
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
PROS: Cost effective lense protection
PROS: Solid build, gets the job done. no apparent image degradation noticed.
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)
PROS: great price, no visible defects
CONS: there should be more threads. It can easily fall off if you don't screw it on tightly
