UV photography can be used to show sun damage to the skin. In UV
photography, a UV filter is placed in front of a camera to attenuate all
wavelengths except UV.
UV pictures can be acquired with either digital or film cameras. However,
most cameras are not suitable for UV photography. You need to check whether
your specific camera is capable of taking UV pictures.
- Using the Filter Holder, rectangular filters can be mounted on any type of camera
(point-and-shoot and SLR).
- The filter can be rotated outside the field of view of the camera.
Alternatively, it can be easily removed and reattached to the Filter
UV filters are opaque to visible light, and camera settings (e.g. focus)
can be adjusted only when the filter is not blocking the field of view
of the camera.
- The Filter Holder can be readily used with the
rail. This allows good stability
during exposure and provides a constant distance between the camera and
the skin. It can also be used with standard tripods.
- The package includes screws/knobs to mount the Filter Holder on a
camera, and magnets (self-adhesive) to attach filters to the Filter
There are seven mounting holes, 1" apart. A camera can be positioned up to
7" away from the filter.
