Thread: Anyone experience this on their filters? Sort of like fogging..

  1. #1

    Default Anyone experience this on their filters? Sort of like fogging..

    I noticed something strange...

    I took out my seldom used Nikon Soft filter.. think i haven't used it for more than 2 years. To my initial "horror", I found a very thin film of coating on the filter which makes it look even more blur when u look thru it. It's not fungus. Not sure if this is what is called FOGGING?

    What causes this??? Luckily I used a lens cloth to wipe and it was gone. All my filters and cameras are always stored in the dry cabinet. I checked on my lenses and thank goodness, no such thing.

    Anyone experience this? In particular if u do own the Nikon Soft filter?

    How did you store the filter?
    It could be plastic outgassing from the filter container.

    Read somewhere that Nikon plastic cases don't have this gas coming out.........but not 100% sure.
