Re: B&W Vs Marumi protection filters

Never heard of them Ray but for comparison, a Kood 77mm skylight 1b costs £28 from SRB

They do a UV for £9 and another skylight for £11. (both 77mm)

As far as I know, Kood are made in Japan from optical glass.

Re: B&W Vs Marumi protection filters

Looks good Ray.

Purely Gadgets have them for £11.44

But I don't know how much they charge for P&P.

Other places sell them for £45-£50, so the 7Day shop price is good.

Re: B&W Vs Marumi protection filters

Skylights give a very, very slight warming to an image, whereas UV's don't.

I guess that in true UV conditions - i.e. high altitudes or long shots over sea, UV would be best, but as I don't do high altitude photography at all, or seascapes much, my stance is that the average shot I take will benefit more from the characteristics of a skylight filter.

A skylight will reduce UV by around 50% and are available in two strengths, 1a and 1b - the 1b being a bit stronger.

BTW - I've posted a couple of shots showing the poloriser on a wide angle lens in your other filters thread.

Re: B&W Vs Marumi protection filters

At the risk of making a nuisance of myself this is my final Q here goes
for mostly landscapes which protection filter would be best the u/v or skylight
and when using the cokin system and ND grads can you leave your protection filter on or has it to be removed

Re: B&W Vs Marumi protection filters

Sorry not to be precise here - if you take a good proportion of your landscapes at altitude or over water where you will find UV more of a problem the UV is the way to go.

If not, then I'd use a skylight. The differences are subtle.

I would not routinely stack filters so would remove a lens protector before fitting a grad or poloriser. But you might get a great effect by staking filters so don't rule out doing it if you want.

I'm not talking about UV/skylight/grads here - more the effects filters you can get.

Digital has to an extent reduced the need to use filters for effects as you can do it in PP.
