UV Filter on a digital camera
I was told by a few people that UV filters are useless on a digital camera. I also listened to the sales guy when I bought a DSLR just recently and he said "No they serve no purpose for the pics with a digital camera, but it adds a layer of protection to the front lens. UV filters are cheap, I bought it based on the salesman's advice. Yesterday it paid for itself .
I was getting ready to take some pics of the neighbors new sports car and he was showing off, spinning the tires when it happened. The filter just all the sudden shattered. It had to be from a rock, but I could not find one anywhere....
anyway... The camera lens is fine and has a brand new UV filter on.
