Camera filter guide

Camera filters – that is, optical filters – seem to be less important for digital cameras with their internal digital image enhancers, but is that true? There are still photographers who swear by quality lenses in front of their lens.

Optical versus digital image enhancement

Camera filters are by no means superfluous, they are still considered a useful supplement. Even though modern digital cameras offer suitable solutions to problems with recordings, they eliminate color casts, haze and high contrast differences electronically. The automatic camera recognizes the scene and initiates the necessary measures without the photographer’s intervention. If that is not enough, the pictures can be edited afterwards with programs like Photoshop sufficiently. In the RAW format, the gradation curve and a variety of specialized controls allow virtually any visual compensation. Blur, stamp tools, repair brush and Co. operate a picture until it hardly resembles the original. Nevertheless, optical filters make sense, they increase the effects many times over and turn a photo into a real art. There are effect and correction filters, the correction filters provide the best results for a true image – better than they can be achieved by a subsequent electronic processing. Classic correction filters are polarization filters, UV and skylight filters as well as gray ND filters.

UV and skylight filters

UV and Skylight are so-called fair weather filters, they primarily provide protection for the very sensitive front lens. For example, when the sun is high and at great distances, bluish haze often appears, which filters out UV and skylights. If a photographer chooses this protection function, he always has the appropriate filter in front of the lens. It should be high quality to avoid reflections and ghosting. High-quality filters also repel adhering dirt. They are again not as expensive as a high quality lens and protect it. If it comes to scratches, the filter change is cheaper than a lens change.

Polarization filter („Pol“ filter)

A polarizing filter ensures clear and high-contrast colors as well as reflection-free surfaces. It consists of polarized glass, which reduces unwanted stray light as a rotatable disc in front of the lens. The suppression of interfering overlays increases the color contrast and the purity increases. By turning the disc reflections can be more or less reduced, they can even amplify. SLR photographers like to use circular polarizing filters, which improve exposure metering and autofocus. For one system camerahowever, the more favorable linear polarizing filters are sufficient.

Gray ND filter (neutral density filter)

With the ND filters, flowing movements can be photographed, the aperture can remain open even in glaring light, are also photos with moderate contrast differences between earthand sky possible. On gray filterssignificantly reduces the amount of light, which allows longer exposure times and a more open aperture. With a gradient filter, the corresponding „dimmer“ can be limited to specific areas of the subject in order to alleviate the high contrast difference. ND filters significantly increase the creative freedom of a photographer.
