Square or Round Filters
They are only two existing type of filter design; the square or round design. The round filters are screwed directly with the thread in front of the lens, while the square ones fixed into a holder requires a ring adapter before joining the lens. The ring adapter itself is attached to the front of the lens.
Screw-in-filters work best if you intend using the filter on just one lens, or with the lens of same thread size. But if your lenses are of different thread size, you’ll need separate filters for each lens. The square and filter system is best if you have different lens thread size, you don’t need to get a different filter set, the ring adaptors are designed to accommodate various lens size.
The choice of your filter shape depends greatly on the task you would use the filter for, some filters seem unusable unless they are screwed directly on the lens. It can also work in the square and filter system. For example, the skylight filters function optimally when suited to screw-in-design in a round device, while filters like the neutral density ones are best used in this filter system.
The skylight also known as the ultraviolet filter is used to protect the front of your lens from unforeseen damage and prevent dust, water, and other dirt particles from falling on the lens. The haze effects are reduced by skylight filters that separate Ultraviolet light when it is in use. The skylight filter is different from the UV filter because of the gentle pink that always cast to it. The pink cast works originally to minimize the blue cast from the color film. However, they will be no need for this with the modern digital cameras.
Also, you don’t have to depend on the filter for full protection of your images. You would have to clean up your filter, although it protects your lens from dust, water and all forms of dirt. You can use an air blower to clean your filter. This way you would remove the dust and dirt without damaging any of the crucial pieces.
