    Default Questions on B+W filters 010 vs KR1,5

    What is the difference between the 010 UV and the Skylight KR 1,5?

    I asked at a shop for a UV filter and was given the Skylight filter, is it the right one?

    My impression is that there is only 1 type of B+W UV filter, so I guess I took it for granted that it is the right one...

    just to confirm is that for 58mm B+W UV filter, is the skylight the right model or the 010 ?

    Hi pHoenix,

    you can check out the B+W web site. They have a section that describes the differences between these 2 products.

    According to the site, the Skylight filter can function as a UV filter. In addition, it also adds a warm tone to the pictures you take. It does mean a less "blue" sky though....

    hi bernard, thanks for the heads up. i did go to their website and got confused

    in anycase, I went back to the shop to change the filter.... as I just wanted a pure UV filter and not have something to change the photo's colour properities... (there's always photoshop i guess. )

    from what i gather, there's the UV-Haze and UV-something... then Skylight is also UV blocking, but it does do something to the lighting/colour due to the brownish pink tint....

    but out of curiousity, does this filter function well in night shots?
