Which filter is the right one for the camera Some photographers and filmmakers who are dealing with the subject for the first time ask themselves this question. Many filters are still irreplaceable in the digital age, since only they allow successful recordings in certain lighting situations. Round filters are the most popular filters today. They are used by beginners to professionals whenever it is too bright to flash or when creative effects are to be achieved. A big advantage of modern filter sets are the materials used. With the round filters, the frame and the thread that is required for attachment to the lens are made of lightweight yet robust aluminum..
The glass used in an ND filter or a UV filter is optical quality so-called Gorilla glass. Not only does this mean that the images are just as sharp as when they were taken without a filter, but also that the glass is particularly break and scratch resistant. It can also be cleaned easily and quickly without leaving any traces of cleaning or micro-scratches. The filters of the F:X Pro series also have a modern coating, i.e. a coating that prevents the dreaded ghosting effect or reflections.
Which filter is the right one?
A set with several suitable filters for every type of scene or lighting situation is always an asset to your own equipment. The most used filter in digital photography and videography is the UV filter. On the one hand, this fulfills the function, as its name suggests, of filtering UV rays, which ensures a more lively image and color reproduction, and on the other hand, this filter simply fulfills the task of protecting the sensitive front element of the lens . In the event of a fall, the filter may be damaged, but the much more expensive lens is protected.
The Astroklar filter
This filter, which is also often used as a drone filter, always shows its strength when photographers are dealing with haze, light pollution at night or a combination of both. The astro clear filter in front of the lens ensures that the effect of a starry night is achieved. Contrasts become clearer, colors appear stronger and disruptive effects in the image or in the recording are noticeably reduced.
More control over the light - ND filters and graduated filters
ND and retail filters, also known as gray graduated filters, are popular as both circular and square filters. Neutral density filters are used to reduce incident light. If photographers want to use the flash on location when the sun is shining, the desired result can still be achieved despite the limitation caused by the flash sync time. The gradient filter only darkens halfway before transitioning into a clear filter. This makes it easy to compensate for strong contrasts.
The magic of the polarizing filter
The polarizing filter or polarization filter noticeably reduces reflections. If you want to know what it looks like under the surface of a lake, you can use the polarizing filter. The polarizing filter is extremely popular not only in landscape photography, but also in architectural photography. Images appear more even and the focus can be placed on small details due to the lack of interference from reflections or reflections.
