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.
