MWO BP550

Technical Information

The single substrate, hard-coated BP550 filter is designed for use in full color, white light applications where either infrared or ultraviolet light (or both) may be present. Because of the steep cut-off of these undesired wavelengths, a BP550 will effectively pass all visible light without “discoloring” the image. While color rendition is greatly improved, this filter also serves as a dust cover, protecting lens surfaces and internal threads.

BP550 reflects UV (below 400nm) and IR (NEW! Now blocks 700-1550 nm) wavelengths. The material does not auto-fluoresce but is somewhat angle of incidence sensitive, exhibiting typical "blue-shifting"; it is designed for 0°-30° applications. Because it's a very broad bandpass filter, the shifting at longer wavelengths usually does not effect peak performance.
