Demystifying UV Filters: What is light transmission percentage?
How to Choose a Chiaro UV Photo Lens Filter
Offering a pristine 99% light transmission value, this 86mm 99-UVBT UV Filter from Chiaro is designed to maintain high image quality while reducing the bluish cast of daylight and protecting the front element of your lens. Contributing to the high 99% transmission value is the use of polished Schott B270 glass, as well as multi-coatings that suppress surface reflections and glare for improved clarity. The filter surface has also been treated with resistance coatings to guard against scratches and ease the process of cleaning dust, moisture, oil, and fingerprints. Its UV designation helps to absorb ultraviolet light and the clear appearance maintains high color fidelity, making it suitable for use at all times.
Beyond the optical design of the filter, it is also characterized by a heavyweight, durable brass filter ring, which features a slim 3.2mm-thin profile to reduce the likelihood of vignetting on wide-angle lenses. The brass ring also features top knurling to prevent binding or jamming when stacking additional filters.
Offering the highest possible light transmission value of 99%, this UV protective filter, constructed from polished Schott B270 glass, does not interrupt the original image quality for a high degree of clarity and color fidelity.
Multi-coating has been applied to suppress flare and surface reflections.
Protective resistance coatings have also been applied to protect the filter from scratches, as well as aid in cleaning moisture, dust, fingerprints, and oils from the surface.
Durable brass filter ring is less prone to jamming or cross-threading compared to conventional aluminum filter rings. The ring's design also features top knurling to prevent binding or jamming when stacking filters.
Slim, 3.2mm-thin filter ring, and 1.1mm-thin glass, helps to avoid the possibility of vignetting on wide-angle lenses with focal lengths as short as approximately 20mm.
Attenuates ultraviolet light and reduces bluish cast of daylight for improved color accuracy, especially when photographing at high altitudes.
Ideal for leaving on your lens at all times for use as a general protective filter.
