Product Highlights
  • Reduces Bluish Cast of Daylight
  • Provides Greater Color Accuracy
  • General Protective Filter
  • Rugged Black Brass Filter Ring
  • High Quality Schott Glass

The B+W 58mm Skylight KR-1.5 (1A) Filter is a general use filter with a slight pink tint to help improve overall color accuracy and clarity. The light pink coloration helps to reduce the overall bluish cast of daylight and is especially effective when photographing landscapes and in shade.

The Sky 1A filter is also useful as a general protective filter to leave on lenses at all times. Filters help to reduce dust and moisture from reaching your lens element and provide additional protection in case of drops or situations where scratching could occur.

B+W filters are constructed from high quality Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. They feature a brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

        B&W filters do two things better than anyone; they do not degrade quality optics and they keep those optics safe.

          I use B+W Skylight filters on all my lenses to protect them from scratches and accidents, while not reducing the quality of light that passes through to the main lens.

            Comments about B+W 58mm Skylight KR-1.5 (1A) Filter:

            This B & W skylight filter has well cut threads and is easily mounted to a lens. Unlike some cheaper filters I have seen, there are no burrs or poorly cut threads, and the glass is tight with no play or even a slight "rattle". I will use it for film photograph, and believe it will perform well.
