Heliopan Skylight 1A Filter Overview

The Heliopan 62mm KR 1.5 Skylight (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. It 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.

The front and rear surfaces of the filter both feature a single anti-reflection coating. Each coating helps to increase light transmission by reducing reflections, scattered light, and ghosting. Additionally, they offer protection to the filter substrate while helping to keep the glass clean for longer than uncoated glass.

This Heliopan filter is constructed from Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. It features a brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

Heliopan Skylight 1A Filter Reviews

Gets rid of blue haze and warms entire image

I use skylight filters (instead of clear or UV) to protect my lenses. I like the overall warming effect and really like how it reduces the blue cast from shadows. It really warms up skin tone too

Great for vintage cameras - Konica 1

I have a Konica 1 camera from the 1950s. It's difficult to find filters and hoods for. So, I've taken to using a 41mm series VI adapter which pushes onto the lens. That allows me to use series VI hoods. The problem then becomes one of filters for the camera. Most series VI filters are uncoated, and probably delaminated by now. As well, they are likely to be scratched up.The Heliopan series VI gives me the benefit of a brand new filter in this no-longer common filter size. Planar filter surfaces, coating, and Schott glass are some of the benefits of the Heliopan filter.I also bought their Series VI yellow filter for use with B&W film.
