Clear Filters: Extra Protection For Your Lenses

It’s always a nervous moment when you drop a lens. Whether you own or rent you never want to see nice glass get damaged.

But we understand that sometimes these things happen.

We recently had a lens come back in from a rental job and the client was sorry to report that the lens had been dropped.

However, luckily the only damage to the lens was a pretty nasty crack to the clear UV filter that was on the lens.

As you can see from the pictures that filter is straight into the bin after that fall, but it could have been the front element of the lens and not just filter that was cracked.

This is a great reminder that we always recommend putting a clear UV filter on your lenses to protect from any unfortunate mishaps. Which can turn a $3,000 mistake into just a $50 mistake and give you some peace of mind.
