This UV Filter blocks the invisible UV component of light from the sky, which can cause blur and to which many color films react with a blue cast.  These filters should be called UV-Blocking Filters, because there are filters for technical applications that pass UV radiation and block all the other wavelengths.  Nevertheless, the short term "UV Filter" has become established among photographers.  UV Filters are ideal for photography in high altitudes (in the mountains), by the sea and in regions with very clean air.  The pictures gain brilliance and disturbing blue casts are avoided.  Because the glass is colorless, color rendition is not altered, aside from the elimination of the unwanted blue cast, and no increase in exposure is required.  That makes a UV Filter very suitable as protection of the front element of the taking lens against dust, flying sand, sea water spray and the like, and it can be kept on the lens at all times.  It is recommended for analog color and black-and-white as well as digital photography.

Single Coating

Each glass surface is vacuum-coated with one layer of Anti-Reflection coating. This single layer helps to prevent internal ghosting and reflections. It also improves light transmission from approximately 92% (uncoated glass) to over 98%.

Mount

This filter uses Century Optics' standard B+W F-Pro filter mount, which has a front accessory thread and is made of brass.  Compared to the earlier standard mount introduced in 2001, the F-Pro mount has become thinner.  Now it can be used with wide angle lenses, including most 24mm focal lengths on a full frame body, without vignetting.  Another advantage of the F-Pro mount is its modified retaining ring, which is no longer threaded in from the front, but holds the filter glass in place from the back.  When removing a filter or lens hood that has been screwed on too tight to the filter, the retaining ring is not at risk of loosening.

NOTE: Diopters are mounted in the older mount due to glass thickness.
