Clear or UV or Skylight Filter?
Sep 15, 2011

Hello,

I'm looking for a filter to protect all my Nikon lenses and I'm a bit confused between getting a Clear or UV or Skylight Filter to leave on permanently on all my lenses.

Nikon seems to only have a NC filter which I assume is a Clear filter. But it seems like other brands like B+W also have UV and Skylight Filters.

Can someone please explain to me the differences between the 3 types of filters? I've tried reading some of the stuff on filter manufacturers websites but I still don't understand which filter I should be getting.

Thanks.
