Irix Edge Light Pollution round filters - Irix lenses were designed with both the effort and experience, of not only engineers, but also photographers. Swiss precision and Korean innovation create Irix lenses.

Irix Edge  
Light Pollution (SE) filter

The Irix Edge Light Pollution (SE) filter is a filter designed for such conditions by being able to eliminate the yellowish colours that often dominate our pictures. With this filter, we can achieve significant colour improvement, improved overall contrast and sharpness.

Technical information

The Irix Edge Light Pollution (SE) is designed for nightscape photography – it eliminates the yellowish colours that often dominate our pictures. With this filter, we can achieve:

  • Significant colour improvement

A filter that guarantees the best possible colour rendering for the night

  • Improved overall contrast

The filter removes the yellowish haze present so that the whole image gains much more contrast

Irix Edge Super Endurance (SE) Series

The Irix Edge Light Pollution is the first of a set of filters produced in the Super Endurance (SE) series.

The optical glass has been subjected to a special thermal treatment to increase its rigidity; in addition, both surfaces of the filter have been covered by coatings that further increase the overall strength of the entire filter surface.

The Irix Edge Light Pollution (SE) filter comes in handy every time we want to take a photograph near to, or in, the city. For example, city landscapes, street photography, or astrophotography.

Control the colours at night

The dominating yellowish colour that can be seen in the picture – when taken at night – is the result of sodium lamp streetlighting. The Irix Edge Light Pollution filter shuts out this yellowish haze.

This type of filter can be successfully used in the city, in the urban landscape, or with photography of the night sky when we want to capture the stars, or the Milky Way, with natural colours.

Pure technology just for you

Irix Edge Neutral Density filters (ND) are an essential tool for long exposure photography and depth of field manipulation. They reduce the light that is passing through the lens by a specific value and helps creating astonishing and surreal images. Their additional waterproof and oil repellent NANO coating prevent from stains, fingerprints and enable using in extreme weather conditions. Their low-profile frames and knurled edges provide very good grip and functionality with aesthetic design which harmonizes with all Irix products.
