A wise initial investment for your camera, the Tiffen 49mm Skylight 1-A filter helps protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs. While protecting the front element of the lens, this filter also reduces the bluish cast of daylight and produces a pleasing, warmer picture tone--thanks to its light pink color. It's perfect for nature, travel and outdoor photography.
This filter also provides additional benefits of correction for ultraviolet (UV) light which can register on film and videotape as a bluish cast and can obscure distant details. It can also be used to reduce the bluish cast common with some electronic flash units. You can leave the filter on the lens at all times for protection and it comes with a 10-year warranty.
