Special Effect Camera Lens Filters

Special effect camera lens filters are used when you wish to alter the way your camera lens works, creating various different effects.

These effects can help to change the background colour of your images, make things appears sharper, add some close up detail and even reduce damaging UV light intake into your lens.

Types of special effect camera lens filters

There are many branded camera lens filters you can buy, including Cokin, Hoya and Tiffen. There are also unbranded and generic lens filters available.

Ensure that your camera lens is compatible with lens filters by checking the size of both. Most lenses and filters are the same size, but camera models vary and some have much larger or smaller lenses.

Neutral density filters reduce all light that enters the lens. These are used when trying to shoot without having to have a long exposure. These lenses are available in different levels of strengths, some blocking out some light with other blocking out ten stops of light.

Polarising filters are available which help to change the way the light works when you're taking a picture. This type of filter is often used to darken skies or backgrounds that are too bright, or to reduce glare from a glass reflection or even a light source.

Coloured filters will help change the overall colour of your images. You may wish to use a coloured filter to add a sepia effect to a picture. You may simply want to add an overall blue, red, yellow or different colour wash to the images you're capturing.

UV lens filters help to minimise the damaging ultraviolet light from the sun. Too much exposure to direct sunlight can damage your camera's sensor, meaning that the image quality is reduced. These lens filters can also help to stop blue casts when shooting in very bright sunlight.
