Transmission Characteristics

Schott UG Transmission

This is a filter that needs strong light, dominated by UV, not even any blue and what little IR needs a stop more (below 50% transmission). Consequently it produces stark images, where the violet needs to be hue-shifted over to blue.

A filter I rarely use as it produces very little difference from a UG5 and requires a lot more light.
