3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't seem to have much effect, 19 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hoya 52mm UV(C) Digital HMC Screw-in Filter (Accessory)
I guess I use it as protection for the camera lens - but so far I have not really detected much difference in the pictures, even when there appeared to be haze.

Forgive me but I thought it was common knowledge that, in digital cameras, UV filters have no effect other than to protect the lens?

Mr. Jones says:
No filter will cut through haze, except sometimes a polariser. Anything you can see will be recorded by the camera. What the UV filter does is prevent the light that you can't see, ie ultra-violet, from reaching the sensor and causing extra haze, especially in high altitude and distance shots. Despite what a previous poster said, UV does indeed affect digital sensors.

Mr. Jones says:
You are incorrect. Despite an anti-UV coating applied to the sensor, this applies only to part of the UV spectrum. Digital camera sensors are affected by UV light in the same way as film, and also to some extent infra-red light.
