Available in both C-PL and UV*, the Celeste filter series was designed to provide the best optical performance and superior advantage to the photographer, promising no negative influence on the image. Its features include:
1. Extremely low light reflectivity performance
With a newly developed 9-layer anti-reflection "Super Zero Coating", the line of Celeste filters produces unbelievable results of low light reflectivity level of 0.2% for UV and 0.3% for C-PL.
2. Anti-Stain Coating (ASC)
The Celeste filters are also armed with another layer of Anti-Stain and water repellent coating (ASC) on both sides of the glass for easier and more effective filter maintenance. The ASC prevents dust, hence minimising scratches when cleaning the surface.
3. High-transparency polarizing film (for C-PL)
The Celeste C-PL filters adopt a high-transparency polarizing film that gives you the advantage of one more stop to capture sharp and clear image in low light conditions.
4. Newly designed sophisticated low profile frame
Unlike other Kenko filter series, the Celeste filter frame is completely redesigned to fit the contemporary lens design. The new low-profile frame is slimmer than other similar frames and leaves almost no chance for vignetting issues when used with super-wide lenses. Its new frame allows users to attach their lens caps safely with no worries. Additionally, Celeste filter frames allow more light to pass through due to widened effective inner diameter.
The Celeste C-PL and UV filters can be used on lenses for DSLR or mirrorless cameras with sizes from 37 - 82mm.
