The Rollei Bay 6 Skylight Filter (R1.5) is a wise initial investment. Due to its light pink color, this filter reduces the bluish cast of daylight and produces a pleasing, warmer picture tone. It can help protect your lens from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs.

A Skylight filter adds a bit of warmth to an image that is shot on a cloudy day. Or if you're shooting in open shade, a Skylight can bring back some color to your skin tones.

In addition, the value of a filter covering a lens has been well-documented over the years. How many stories have we all heard about photographers dropping lenses and smashing front elements? With a front lens protection filter on, the chances of preserving the valuable glass in your lens increases many fold. Shall we call it a form of inexpensive insurance?

If desired they can be left on at all times for protection
Skylight filters provide additional benefits of correction for Ultraviolet(UV) light which can register on film and videotape as a bluish cast and can obscure distant details
Also used to reduce the bluish cast common with some electronic flash units
