UV/IR Filter's effect on film

Recommended Posts

Does anyone has any idea whether the UV/IR filter must be taken off when shooting film? Will it cause strange colors on film especially with wide angles like 21 or 24 Summilux?

 

Thanks very much.

Yes, they'll cause a problem using colour film. There will be colour contamination as you get closer to the corners of the frame - cyan from memory. The wider the lens, the greater the problem.

With B&W film there is noticeable vignetting on the 28 cron at least, and I think I noticed it on my 35 as well.

 

So unless you are shooting a 50mm lens or longer, I would swap out the filter for a plain UV one.

Thanks for this information. I'm shooting a 35mm lens (ZM Biogon 35/2) and already ordered a plain UV filter some days ago which will hopefully reach me soon.
