Manfrotto Lens Filters
Manfrotto camera lens filters feature multi-coating to minimize reflections and maximize light transmission. Each filter is provided with a reusable storage case. Depending on the model, Manfrotto filters also offer water-repellent, oil-repellent and antistatic characteristics.
· UV filters block out UV light, preventing it from entering the lens to reduce blurring, haziness and blue casting.
· Circular polarizer filters enhance color, contrast and saturation, as well as remove undesirable reflections from nonmetallic surfaces.
· Neutral density filters help control exposure times by reducing the amount of light hitting the camera sensor. They do not alter the color of the scene.
·Protect filters are engineered to provide protection against scratches, oil and moisture, without affecting overall image quality.
