Tiffen 58mm UV Protection Filter

What does it do to contrast? See below.

Is that the contrast, or is the one with the filter brighter? Turning the flash down doesn't help much, or at least I don't think it does, did that yesterday.

The Tiffen UV filter was about $6, so I won't be sending it back. It's better then nothing. You can increase the contrast in AfterShot Pro.

The Olympus M. 40-150mm F4.0-5.6 R is a good lens, probably better outside, doesn't always want to focus inside. The Tiffen UV filter is good enough for $6, if you want to spend $20+ for one, be my guest. I did once. But I'm to cheap to do so again. Is Hoya better?

Fuck, I should of bought the Amazon, for the same price. I have one somewhere, the reviews say it doesn't affect the image quality. What lens is it on? Probably one of the manual ones, I don't use.

Hoya isn't cheap, so it's probably better.

I forgot Amazon made em. Didn't own any Tiffen ones though.

You might not need a UV filter. Just search Google for something related to UV filters. Apparently digital cameras already filter UV.

But it sounds like it should make the image darker, not brighter. So decrease the ISO? Or change the exposure? Changing the exposure on the RAW image, makes it mostly match the RAW image without the UV filter. Use Perfectly Clear, and it might match the JPG of the no UV filter. You need more contrast to match the JPG, even the no UV filter RAW doesn't match the JPG.
