Leica 13-420 overview

  • 1Description

The Leica Series 8 UVA/IR Glass Filter (Black) is specifically recommended for the Leica Digital M8 camera. In order to maintain maximum optical clarity, the M8 - with its superior sensor - was not designed with a total IR protection filter system.

This filter is designed to eliminate the pinkish/purple/reddish tint that certain black synthetic items might be subjected to when shooting under certain lighting conditions, such as that of incandescent bulbs. This filter can also serve to help protect the glass in your lens.

Note: Leica recommends removing the attached UV/IR filters when using lenses from 16-50mm in analog photography

Infrared filter for the M8 camera, which does not have a complete infrared system built in
Helps minimize potential pinkish tint under certain conditions; ensures neutral color
No light loss
Can also serve as protective filter
Should only be used with 6-bit coded Leica lenses

    Leica 13-420 reviews

    Series 8 UVA/IR Glass Filter (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what you need for the lens It's a must have for Summilux M21 lens on M8, protects your lens on M9 although not a must have, Hard to find a series 8 filter of other kind other than this one (no stock), you can't stack 2 ND filters if they are series 8 you will need it for the M8 (red tint issue without this UV/IR cut) you can use just a UVa for the M9
