Just a quick question I was spotting on sunday with FlyTwed and JFKTOWERFAN and we were shooting with the sun behind us, blocked by a building as well. But my question is, when do I want to use my UV filter?

Doors open, right hand side, next stop is Springfield.

You can use it in general to protect the lens from dust and co.
I myself used one for sometime, but the additional piece of glass created a few minor problems, so I decided to stop using it.


How much A is there is Airliners Net ? 0 or nothing ?

I've been taking pictures with UV hazy filter since 1997. I never took single picture without this filter.

I always use them as protection of my lenses. They are also usefull if shooting in bright sun or snow (when there is a lot of UV light). Don'tbuy cheap one's, I always use the B+W MRC filters. Expensive but good.

With a digital camera, there is no need, except as a lens protector.

Quoting Cadet57 (Thread starter):
But my question is, when do I want to use my UV filter?

When you have it on a film camera. The frequency of light the UV filter works on used to affect film. It is basically useless on a CCD/DMOS sensor as they are not affected by that freq. Unless you just want to use it to keep dust off your lens.
