The vast majority of the lenses we rent come standard with higher quality clear protection filters pre-applied. If you’re considering renting this filter for protection use, check the includes section on the lenses page to see if one is already included.
UV filters are designed to absorb ultraviolet light, thus reducing the bluish cast caused by daylight. This is done with just a 1x filter factor, meaning no exposure change. We offer rentable UV filters in a variety of sizes, with this one being 86mm.
Many people oftentimes confuse UV filters with protection filters. While UV filters can be used for this, the difference in colorcast means all lenses in your bag would need to have the same type of UV filter applied to match image results.
