So I went to the camera store today in search of a UV filter for one of my lenses. (Don’t think of them as UV filters – think of them as protection for the alarmingly expensive front element of your alarmingly expensive camera lens.) And I found this filter from Hoya that seems to do more than just filter out UV rays:
As far as I can tell, when you put the filter on, all of your subjects start smiling and wearing funny hats.
I may have to experiment with this.
