UV haze. It’s a problem that photographers face everyday. Haze reduces the overall contrast of an image and is almost always the first environmental phenomena to ruin your chances of turning that landscape photograph into fine-art. Haze is caused by ultraviolet contamination on your digital sensor or film, and causes the image to appear faded blue, gray or milky.

Firecrest UV filters come in four variations:

  • UV Multicoated offers basic UV and lens protection.
  • UV 370nm is a premium filter with a defined UV cut at 370nm
  • UV 400nm offers the maximum UV reduction for shooting high altitudes and snow. Schott Superwite glass makes this the ultimate UV filter.
  • UV IR Cut is a specialty filter that reduces ultraviolet and infrared.

Firecrest Multicoating

Firecrest is a multicoating application for glass filters that is by far the most technologically advanced filter manufacturing process on the market. The Firecrest process is a hard-coated electrolytic process that is anti-reflective, scratch-resistant, and hydrophobic. Most importantly, Firecrest technology gives our scientists unprecedented control over modifying specific frequencies of the light spectrum.

SuperSlim and UltraSlim Rings

We manufacture our high quality aluminum rings to the most demanding tolerances, and these really slim rings minimize the chance of vignetting. 

UltraSlim rings are 3mm thin, but lack threads for stacking or a lens cap.
