Leica E46 Filters, available in UVA II, ND and Colours variants

The UVa II filter protects the front elements of the lens against scratches, marks and dirt. At the same time, the new multicoating and significantly improved optical parameters make it possible to preserve full imaging quality, even in unfavourable lighting conditions. Thanks to an additional thread, the UVa II filter can also be used in combination with other filters, and acts as permanent protection for your valuable filters, too.

The neutral density filter (ND) enables this even in sunlight by reducing the amount of light entering the lens to allow longer shutter speeds to be used. Colour rendition remains unaffected and undesirable reflections in contre jour exposures are prevented. In addition to this, the ND filter allows the use of larger apertures for capturing photos and videos with shallower depth of field.

These specially calculated colour filters are particularly recommended for black-and-white photography with the Leica M Monochrom. The yellow, green and orange filters allow photographers to explore a whole range of creative effects with light and contrast. By modifying the conversion of colours to greyscale values, the colour of the filter in the original scene becomes lighter, and its complementary colour darker. This can be used to create uniquely atmospheric moods in landscape and portrait photography. At the same time, multicoating reduces reflections and ensures high transmission without vignetting.
