The two most popular basic filters are the colourless ultraviolet (UV) or haze filter and the faintly amber-tinted skylight filter. Both are designed primarily for use with SLR-Cameras and DSLR-Cameras. However, since they have little effect on black-and-white photography and do not require any changes in exposure, many photographers simple leave one of them on the camera at all times to protect the lens’s vulnerable front glass element. A scratched filter is far less expensive to replace than a lens.
The skylight filter also reduces the effects of ultraviolet radiation, but in addition, its slight amber tint reduces the bluishness of light in open shade and on overcast days. A skylight filter does not affect other colours noticeably.
Hoya has different types of filters:
- UV filters Block or absorb ultraviolet (UV) light.
- Skylight filters Designed to reduce the slightly blue cast.
- ND filters Neutral density filter(LEE filter).
- ND Graduated filter Is an optical filter that has a variable light transmission.
- Effect filters Star Filters, Fog filters, Centre Spot Filters, Day For Night Filters, Enhancing Filters.
- Polarizing filters can reduce reflections, darken a blue sky, and add richness to colours.
