Lens Filter Camera
Recently bought a Nikon D40 with 18-55mm lens. Should I get a certain type of filter for it?

I take a lot of photos to outdoor motocross and supercross, and I am merely an amateur photographer who only does for fun. I take the family photo often, as in both even outside.

Many people use a UV filter just to protect the front element of your lens from damage. "UV filters absorb ultraviolet rays which often makes outdoor photographs hazy and indistinct. "(From: http://www.thkphoto.com/products/hoya/gf-01.html) We receive this question often enough that I decided upload a sample of Flickr showing the same theme is taken with and without UV filter. Download the image, cut a small section of the upper half and drag it to the same section at the bottom and see what you think. The photos were taken about 15 seconds apart in subdued sunlight, so I think that the lighting was virtually identical for everyone. There were no post-processing in all that can make a fair comparison. I will not comment further and let you decide for yourself if there is any change of color. Http: / / www.flickr.com/photos/7189769 @ N04/441244796 / The photo was taken with a Nikon D200 at ISO 100 with the Nikon VR 18-200 lens @ 112 mm f/5.3. Here is a comparison I did by accident. Read the comments and understand: http://www.flickr.com/photos/samfeinstein/1793551691/ Buy a brand like Hoya or Tiffen. Do not get cheap junk put in front of your lens well. Personally, I am now switching to the high quality of normal optical glass "filters" Nikon for lens protection, despite that cost more than a good UV filter.
