with a adapter, they finally drop it off today. as it turns out all my 55mm filters on hand are colored, or skylight. Here goes What's a skylight do ? I did take some shot with a plain skylight. The others are like + 1, 2, so on. Which seem to get darker. The picture look sharper and more depth, but didn't do anything glare.

Hi sandtowd,

I don't have a skylight filter, but I found this definition on the web:

Quote:
A filter which absorbs ultraviolet radiation and which is also usually tinted light pink or yellow in order to cut back on some of the blueness in an image caused by skylight. A type of warming filter.

Works kinda like a UV Haze filter and can aid in showing up the true colors in landscapes. Also good as a protector lens on the camera. I use the Skylite 1-A filter on mine for almost every shot outside and quite a few inside!!

Ok thanks. Thats what I was thinking they did also. This UV filter is new to me. Is the UV just a play on words ? ( LOL ) I just order a Hoya UV ( 0 ) not more than ten minutes ago. The rest of my skylights get darker as the # goes up, but no color. Like yellow, there more of amber. I would say yes it brings out the true color.

these are without, This jack. yesterday his !st buggy and 1st day to drive it on a real mud road. Jack is happy Jack
