Questions for SR11/12 owners.

Hello. Has anyone has added a UV filter to their SR11/12? Am wondering if a UV filter might have more adverse effects than positive effects on this camcorder. Also, has anyone noticed any difference between shooting 1920 and 1440, and viewing on a 720p plasma?
Thanks.
Mike

Mike no adverse effects with a UV filter. Only shoot HQ 1920.

I wrote a warning thread a couple of weeks ago about not using a UV filter for the purpose of protecting the lens shutters against dust etc. I have a wrecked Sony DVD403 to show for not having a UV filter on at all times.

I agree with Tom the UV glass is cheap compared to a new lens face. I do the same on my Sony EX1 and all cameras I have owned over the years.

Thanks guys, for the responses.
I did a quickie test, comparing a shot with and without the UV filter. My subject was a scenery shot from a high hilltop. There was such a small difference that for all intents and purposes, there was no difference. Indoors, shooting something that is lit through a sunlit window, there is some difference with the color maroon. Didn't seem to affect the yellows and greens. So for what its worth, I too would say that a UV filter changes very, very little. Hoping that on humid days, or days with lots of haze, things will look better. As for the protection, great point.
