Leica E39 UVa/IR Filter Silver
The Leica E39 UVA/IR Glass Filter (Silver) is specifically recommended for the Leica Digital M8 camera. In order to maintain maximum optical clarity, the M8—with its superior sensor—was not designed with a total IR protection filter system.
This filter is designed to eliminate the pinkish/purple/reddish tint that certain black synthetic items might be subjected to when shooting under certain lighting conditions, such as incandescent bulbs. This filter can also serve to help protect the glass in your lens.
