    UV Filter Holder

UV photography can be used to show sun damage to the skin. In UV photography, a UV filter is placed in front of a camera to attenuate all wavelengths except UV.

UV pictures can be acquired with either digital or film cameras. However, most cameras are not suitable for UV photography. You need to check whether your specific camera is capable of taking UV pictures.

  • Using the Filter Holder, rectangular filters can be mounted on any type of camera (point-and-shoot and SLR).

UV Filter

  • The filter can be rotated outside the field of view of the camera. Alternatively, it can be easily removed and reattached to the Filter Holder.
    UV filters are opaque to visible light, and camera settings (e.g. focus) can be adjusted only when the filter is not blocking the field of view of the camera.

Rotated UV Filter

  • The Filter Holder can be readily used with the MoleSense rail. This allows good stability during exposure and provides a constant distance between the camera and the skin. It can also be used with standard tripods.


UV Filter with MoleSense

  • The package includes screws/knobs to mount the Filter Holder on a camera, and magnets (self-adhesive) to attach filters to the Filter Holder.
    There are seven mounting holes, 1" apart. A camera can be positioned up to 7" away from the filter.
