This is a quick guide on when to use UV, ND and CPO filters
- UV filter – reduces ultra-violet light, great for bright days, snow and water
- ND filter – acts like a pair of sunglasses and great for creating long exposure images
- CPL filter – Circular Polarising Filter captures the real intensity of the colour, while acting to reduce glare.
Regardless of which filter you use, a filter protects the glass on your lens against scratching so is a valuable piece of insurance.

- Aperture: f/8 and narrower
- Shutter speed: Above 1/125s
- ISO: 200 and higher
- Focus mode: Manual (zone focusing)
