Formatt-Hitechs new UV filters with Firecrest coating are the single most effective tool available for eliminating UV contamination and increasing contrast and acuity in your images, while also providing protection for the front element of your valuable lenses. The Firecrest UV IR Cut is a specialty filter that allows visible spectrum light to pass while blocking both UV and IR. These filters block infrared contamination that can cause image degradation. Firecrest UVs feature our exclusive Firecrest multicoating, that is both anti-reflective and hydrophobic, coated to broadcast quality glass in the thinnest rings on the market.
UV + IR filters are a speciality filter that cuts light at both ends of the spectrum. The UV + IR filter reduces the ultraviolet light that causes haze in bright sunlight, and at the other end of the spectrum it reduces infrared that causes digital artifacts.
