I was wondering if they give a photo a "pizazz" or the finishing touch on a photo?
UV filters are basically useless other than giving people peace of mind in protecting the front lens element
circular polarizers work well in reducing glare on reflective surfaces and adding saturation (as long as the filter is adjusted properly based upon the angle of the sun)
ND filters & graduated ND filters work nicely when shooting in situations where you need to shoot at slower shutter speeds when there is sufficient light (ie 1/15 mid-day, shooting a waterfall or river... slower shutter speed to capture the motion of the water).
There are others but these tend to be the most used.
and you're a camera salesman lulz
so... is 'pizzazz' the technical term?
i often use polarizer even with black and white. its great for improving contrast.
was... WAS. He got 'let go'.
I don't think he's serious when he posts
I am one of the people using a UV filter for peace of mind. I also have a polarizing filter. I went to switch filters and somehow the UV filter is stuck. On one side there is a gap between the lens and the filter the size of two business cards. I guess the threads are not lined up anymore.
Anybody know how to remove a stuck filter? It's a Nikkor 18-135 on my D80. Thanks!
Put a rubberband around the circumference of the UV filter then try again. Rubberband increases your gripping strength signicantly. However, I haven't tried this on a askewed filter before, good luck.
I had that issue with a CPL that was over tightened. I used a rubber jar opener to get it off.
