58mm Circular UV Camera Lens Filters

When you are searching for a 58mm circular UV camera lens filter, the abundance of options may seem overwhelming. Understanding as much about these filters as you possibly can be helpful. Below, are answers to some of the most commonly asked questions you may have about UV lens filters.

What does a UV filter do for your camera lens?

Understanding the function of a UV protective filter is important to get the most out of the product and to avoid unwanted interference with your camera’s built-in lens. These filters are circular thin pieces of glass that fit securely over the front of your camera's lens and are designed to protect them from scratches, smudges, cracks, and more.

How do you attach a 58mm UV filter?

To attach the UV protection filter to your lens, simply line up the threadings and screw them together gently using a clockwise motion. Remember to not overtighten the filter. If you can't get them to screw together, check to make sure that the threading is lined up. It may be that you have two different thread sizes, which would mean that the lens cover isn't compatible with your camera. Double check that the lens filter is meant to be used with your model of camera.

Will your lens cap fit over UV filters?

If you have a Canon, Olympus, Nikon, or any other brand of camera, you’ll likely want to know if the lens cap you have can still be used with this type of lens filter affixed to your camera’s lens. In general, a good rule of thumb is that if the UV lens filter is a match for your camera, then the lens cap that came with your Canon or another brand of camera should fit over the filter as well.

When should I use a UV filter?

It's important to know when to protect your lens by using a UV filter. Below are some common situations where you’ll benefit from using a protective UV filter.

  • To help seal your lens from the elements like ocean spray or windy and rainy weather.
  • In situations where you will be shooting in conditions with very bright sunlight.
  • You should use a filter in situations where your lens could easily become dirty or smudged.
  • When you shoot in the studio these filters help provide clarity and lens protection.
