The UV filter, also known as a haze filter, is not only an excellent universal filter for visually improving photographs with all film types, but it can always stay on the lens for protection from dust, fingerprints, moisture, etc. and for use under extreme conditions It absorbs the short wave portion of the spectrum so under hazy conditions a clearer reproduction of the scene is possible. The loss of sharpness caused by UV rays and the bluish tones common in infinity scenes are eliminated with the colorless UV filter. An exposure correction is not required.

UV filters are something many photographers don't pay too much attention to, but should. Filters introduce another 2 glass surfaces to deal with. The thing I like about Heliopan filters is the high quality optical glass they use in their filters. I can be assured that I am minimizing the impact of adding another piece of glass into the lens equation. The build quality is excellent too. The brass ring is well made, and not super thin like you often find with cheap filters.
