Now you can get a UV filter ring colored to match your every mood... or camera color.

Red, Gold, Blue, Pink

Or cheap way to become a professional photographer! Now all you need is this, a DSLR (because they are so much more professional than mirrorless cameras) and hold your camera always in portrait orientation!

Off course you also need a big lens, because the bigger ones are always better as all pros use big lenses. But then you really look like a PROOOW

If that option ever expanded to more than the UV filters, you could have your corporate identity color via your filters.
Or a genius way to organize the filters at a glance by ring color.

UV filter instantly neutralizes any effect of the red(ish) ring.

Yeh, my T1i may be worth of in the tens of dollars :( It's a DSLR anyway, however.

Is it true that no pro uses UV filter?

Or, will remove UV filters make me look like a pro?

Nah, you need to use lenses that cannot take filters at all -- like the 11-24 or the supertelephotos :p

The 11-24 won't take a filter? I guess that rules it out... :rolleyes:

It can take rear gelatin ones, but those are more annoying to use -?

Red rubber band.

Cheaper and converts any lens into Canon L. Also, they have been said to improve MKI optics and AF to match the MKII version of the lens...even if it doesn't yet exist.
