Know the Filter Size of Your Camcorder
Filters can be added to video cameras and DSLRs to be used to protect the lens or to correct
the image being recorded. The different types of filters are:
UV Filters: A UV filter is the best available protection for the front element of your lens. A lens that accidentally gets dropped on its front element while hiking into the woods can potentially be saved by purchasing this item. Some people refer to them as "cheap insurance".
Polarizer Filter: If you're out hunting or fishing on a lovely day – and you want to get a fabulous shot of a cloud-filled sky or make the water seem more saturated, then a polarizer is the way to go. This filter is the best way to make the clouds stand out, increase or decrease the saturation of the ocean or increase or decrease the reflection off the water. You can also use this filter when shooting into glass or windows since it will, again, either increase or decrease reflections.
Neutral Density Filter: If you are to film subjects such as snow, sand or other bright scenes which could cause overexposure, to enable slow shutter speeds to be used (filming subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, or cars), to decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used (separate subjects from the background), or to used outdoors in bright situations, than the Neutral Density Filter is the way to go.
Digital Ultra Clear Filter: This filter is a breakthrough in filter design with its Water White glass, highest high optical quality composition. It's basic value is to serve as a high-quality, permanent lens protector.
To determine which size filter you need for you camera you can look for it on the list below. If your camera is not on the list, you can look up your camera online and look under the specifications of the camera and find it's "Filter Size"
