I've seen several opinions here that it's okay to have unprotected shooting. They say a UV filter is just another way to cause lens flares, and that the coatings on the lenses themselves are plenty strong.

I'd rather err on the side of caution.

It's a personal comfort level. I don't use protective filters. If the manufacture thought it needed protection, they'd have put the filter there to begin with. However, some people feel more comfortable with an extra piece of glass up front. Certainly the front element can be damaged by dropping, etc. That's what I own insurance for. Now, if you don't own insurance and feel that your prone to damaging your equipment or can't afford the costly repair, out of your pocket. Then put a filter on it.

But if you need to get every ounce of performance out of the great Canon optics then forgo the filter unless you have a reason to put one on (color correction, polarizer, diffusion etc.)

Well, I suppose when I'm shooting in familiar conditions, and don't mind the consequences of the risks, I don't need a filter. But I always keep a spare one in my kit just in case.

I agree Jeff. I want to keep one on there, as it makes me feel better, but I'm always paranoid about dust and spots and the like, that don't seem to show up nearly as much on the lens glass itself. Every single time I looked at that filter, it was filthy! And I just realized the one I'd been using was coloring my video a little.

I always keep my filter on to protect from scratches and damage. The filter's cheap compared to the cam's lens.

I guess some of us don't appreciate double-entendre.

What a hoot! 1300++ Look-sees at this thread...

Now, leaving the UV Filter on the camera is definate insurance on your investment.

However, I have notice lense flares using it and have taken it off at times to remove them from the shot.

Cheers!

I can't believe the number of replies from this post simply by putting the words "smoldering babes" in the title. I guess this is our equivalent of XL1 porn. We fellas are so hard up!haha

Far short, gentlemen. There is a post in the XL1 camera forum with almost 4500 views. It was also very active when the server crashed in July and hundreds (if not thousands) of views were lost. But please be advised Meta-Discussions will be deleted (posts, not threads). So keep up the good work but limit the discussions (as much as possible) to the topic at hand. Thanks.

I found the answer

I think THIS will safely answer the question of "Which camera gets you the smouldering babes" once and for all!

I'm just wondering why I'm not getting gigs like this.

Thanks to fellow video professional Keith Loh for forwarding this informative web page to me.

Of course one of the picutres had a trusty XL1s in it! Glad to see they are being put to good use.

Tell Keith thanks for the quality link!

Yah, both video cameras are XL1's and the still photographer is using a Canon also.

Do you think they remembered to put tape in the cameras?
