Special Filters

B+W 486 UV/IR Cut

Some B+W filters transmit invisible ultraviolet or infrared light but block or severely restrict the visible spectrum. In conjunction with appropriately sensitized film, these filters make it possible to gain insights into otherwise hidden worlds. In contrast, other B+W special filters prevent this radiation from passing through the lens to reach the sensor because in certain situations it causes problems and can distort the impression that the image creates.
