Filter—B+W 486 UV-IR Cut Interference Filter
Spectral transmission graphs on this page were measured by Coastal Optical Systems on their equipment using single samples of the specified filters. Graphs used by permission.
Graphs are in nanometers. Visible light is approximately 390 - 650 nm (the human eye can see very weakly into the 700-800nm range).
A great source for filters at very competitive prices is our trusted sponsor, B&H Photo.
See the Schneider Optics B+W 486 UV-IR cut page for this interference-type filter.
Interference filters do not work well with wide angle lenses; light rays entering at an angle cause differing color rendition, resulting in increasingly cyan corners. It should not be used on lenses with an angle of view wider than 60° (about 35mm on a full-frame 36 X 24mm sensor).
