Irix Edge UV

Technical information

The Irix Edge UV & Protector Filter

Clear and Safe

The Irix Edge UV & Protector ensure the safety of your lens in all conditions. This filter is  useful when we need suitable lens protection while hiking,  travelling, or when shooting sport such as the World Rally Car Championship (WRC), cross-country competitions, as well as for daily lens protection against dust, water, accidental scratches.

Hint: Usually it’s better to change the filter rather than the front element of the lens. Repair costs can reach several hundred dollars. Used lens has a bigger re-sale value if front element is in good condition.

This filter is available in sizes of
52, 55, 58, 62, 67, 72, 77, 82 and 95mm.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another feature of the UV filter is the reduction of Ultra Violet Light and so achieving more accurate and natural colours. This is especially important in analogue photography because the photosensitive material is extremely sensitive to UV rays.

 

Top optical quality

The Irix Edge filters has been developed based on the highest quality optical glass which guarantees high light transmission.

 

A multilayer anti-reflective coating has been applied to minimize the risk of unwanted reflections has been applied on both surfaces of the filter.

 

The filter also has a NANO coating with hydro and oil-repellent characteristics. This means that dirt does not adhere to its surface and so maintenance of the filter’s surface is easy. 

 

The filter frame is made of lightweight and durable aluminium. Its surface has been covered with a black coating. This special finish minimizes the risk of flare, while being resistant to damage and scratches.

 

Each of Irix Edge filters is packed in an aesthetic and functional case that provides adequate protection both during storage and transportation.
