filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast
of daylight. This filter is especially useful when photographing at
high altitudes or around bodies of water. No additional coloration or
contrast is provided, allowing you to pair this filter with others.

reaching your lens element and provide additional protection in case of
drops or situations where scratching could occur.
