When Not to Use a UV Filter

Many photographers consider the UV filter a necessary accessory for a new lens, and while it does have some useful qualities, there are a few situations in which you’d be better off without one.

1) When you’re using other filters

In the right hands, a remote triggering system can expand the parameters of what’s possible when planning a complex, multifaceted photograph, or for that matter, add new twists to less complex subjects you’ve photographed countless times. Available hard-wired for shorter distances or wireless configurations for greater working distances, remote triggers help to eliminate camera vibration.
