What is a protective filter?
Protective filters are clear filters, typically made out of glass, that screw onto the front of the lens. They are specifically made for taking impact and protecting your lens from scratches. Some filters have multi-resistant coatings (MRC) with anti static properties which will help in repelling dirt, dust and debris.
Why use a protective filter?
Lens protectors are essential for keeping your lens scratch-free, and can help save your lens from the impact of a drop. Repairing a cracked or scratched lens is costly and time consuming, which is why it is so important to prevent damage from happening. Lens protectors are made from optical grade glass and do not affect or alter the quality of your photos and are overall a great step to take for protecting your gear.
