The Kenko MC UV Protector helps protect your camera lens against dust, moisture, fingerprints, scratches and damage. It also provides basic reduction of UV light. This filter may be kept on your camera at all times.
Films and the CCDs behind your camera lens are sensitive to ultra-violet (i.e.. UV) rays, although they are invisible to our eyes. If you allow UV light to be recorded on the CCD, it is likely that your image will look bluish and the color casts may not be acceptable. Moreover, UV and skylight type filters can also eliminate the lack of sharpness caused by UV radiation and reduces distant haze.
