Why Use Protection Filters?

Many a camera lens has evaded ruin by the grace of a humble protection filter. Lenses are among the most important and valuable items in a photographer’s kit, and protective filters are among the simplest ways to safeguard them. Not all lens filters are created equal, however. A high-quality protector filter will shield a lens’ front element against the perils of dust, dirt, moisture and impact without compromising its optical quality.

At CameraPro we only carry professional grade lens filters. As well as clear protection filters, we also stock UV filters, polarising filters, neutral density (ND) filters and variable ND filters from leading brands such as B+W, Hoya, and Lee Filters.

Why Use Protection Filters?

The front element of your modern lens is a pretty tough piece of glass, and a lens hood can save it from most knocks. However, a sufficient knock (or fall) will scratch or break it. 

Also, no matter how careful you are, at some point you’re going to get something on the front of your lens. Good lenses and good filters have a number of coatings to effect the correct transmission of light to your sensor and these can be damaged by things like salt spray from the ocean and airborne particles ‘sandblasting’ your lens over time.

Even the gentle abrasion of regular cleaning can take its toll on the fragile coatings.  Nikon’s support site even suggests that you “…not breathe on the lens… as there are harmful acids in the breath that can damage lens coating”. So a decent protective filter can take the weight of the world on its shoulders at a fraction of the cost of having your lens’ front element replaced.
 

Price vs Quality

Camera lens filters can vary greatly in quality; good ones preserve while bad ones degrade the quality of your images. The lower quality glass used in budget filters can cause a lot of problems, from lower light transmission—less light getting to your sensor—to increased lens flare, ghosting, chromatic aberration and uneven colour shifts. 

Higher end filters are designed with the professional photographer in mind.  They offer excellent light transmission—99% or above—and are multi-coated to prevent image degradation while at the same time offering resistance to elements like dust, water, greasy fingerprints, etc.
 

About Filters from CameraPro

At CameraPro we only carry professional grade filters and stock three major levels of filter:

Hoya/Kenko Pro1D - high quality glass offering strong protection and multi-coated for image quality

Hoya HD - similar optically to the Pro1D but more durable and with extra coatings for resistance to water, dust and grease for easier cleaning

B+W Pro - similar to the Hoya HD but with a slightly higher light transmission rating and thinner profile to better prevent vignetting in wide angle lenses.

Every product we stock is covered by a genuine Australian warranty.
