Filters are a necessary part of a photographer’s inventory. They are as important as a camera or lens and can help you make memorable images. Filters also allow film and digital cameras to see things more like our eyes see a scene. The range of brightness that film and certainly digital sensors can record is far less than the human eye can see. To accurately render a scene as our eyes see it, we often need the help of filters.
Filters also help protect the expensive front element of your lens. Better to crack an inexpensive filter than the front element of your lens!
At Camera West we offer a full range of top quality filters from B+W, Heliopan, Schneider, and Lee, among others. Stop by and talk to our knowledgeable staff for recommendations on a filter for that photographer in your life.
