Manfrotto’s camera lens filters are built to the highest quality standards.

- UV filters block out UV light, preventing it from entering the lens, reducing blurring, haziness and blue casting.
- Circular Polarizer filters enhance color, contrast and saturation as well as removing undesirable reflections from non-metallic surfaces.
