Thread: Will this combination affect the picture quality

    Default Will this combination affect the picture quality

    I was thinking of combining the UV filter and circular polorising filter together which of course the UV filter will be in-front of the circular polorising filter so does this affect the picture quality.

    i do not think it will, unless you are worried about vignetting on a wide angle lens..

    I think there are no point putting a UV filter on when you have a circular polorisar.

    hmm, i think for most pple, the UV is a stay on filter. so the polariser usually goes on top of it. Erm, at least for me its like that.

    the UV filter is just a protection over the lens... (for my case) if i using a polariser, den it should be over the UV... no harm done yet... but tat depends on the quality of UV & cir-pol...

    If you are trying to improve image quality, there is no necessity for a UV filter if you are using a CP. If its just for convenience, depending on the lens and filters used, there is a risk of vignetting.

    Yes Laugh and Del_ctrlnoAlt ..... I know where you are coming from, but look at his idea .... he is thinking of putting the UV filter INFRONT of the circular poloriser .... which I think is very redundent ........

    But come to think of it, if I put on a circular poloriser, I would remove my UV filter ......

    a. A piece of glass infront does reduce certain amount of quality, however neligible it might be.

    b. Just a habit ;D
