Filters are an important piece of equipment for taking good photographs. Each type of filter gives its own effect. The most used filters are UV (Ultraviolet), ND (Neutral density), Polarizing and Colour filters.
In addition to the primary functions of the filters, they also protect the lenses from scratches. When buying filters, it is important to make sure it fits the filter size of the lens.
UV filters are a good investment if you want to avoid Flares and Ghosts on your pictures. In contrast to the other filter types, the UV filter stay on the lens all the time and does not only have a single function.
ND, also known as Neutral Density filtre, is often used to extend the closing time of your camera. This is used in conjunction with taking long exposure photographs. The number after ND indicates how many stops the image goes down in exposure when mounted on the lens. That is, a ND4 filter will make the image go down four stops in exposure and an ND8 will make it go down eight stops. A variable ND filter can typically be set to a variety of ND values.
GND, also known as Graduated Neutral Density, is a variation of ND filters that is more potent in one half than the other. This type of ND filters are often used to take pictures of landscapes where the sky is too bright and needs to be toned down for the foreground to get the right exposure.
Polarizing is used to eliminate glares from, for example, water or objects. It can also be used to make the sky darker and give it more detail. The filter removing glares in the motives may result in more vibrant colours.
In addition, we also have a wide selection of other equipment for your camera such as SD cards, flashes and lenses.
