Control the colors at night

The yellow dominant light that can be seen in the picture during the night is caused by the use of sodium lamps for urban street lighting. 

The Irix Edge Light Pollution filter removes the yellowish haze emitted by sodium lamps.

This type of filter can be successfully used in the city, in the urban landscape, or the photography of the night sky when you want to capture the stars, or the Milky Way, with natural colours. 

Nano coating

The Irix Edge Light Pollution filter has been developed based on the highest quality optical glass, which guarantees high light transmission.

Multilayer anti-reflective coatings have been applied on both surfaces of the filter to minimize the risk of unwanted reflections.

The filter also has a NANO coating with hydro- and oil-repellent characteristics, so that dirt doesn't adhere to its surface, maintaining the filter's purity.

Its frame is made of lightweight and durable aluminium. Its surface has been covered with a black coating with a special finish that minimizes the risk of flare, while being resistant to damage and scratches.

Each Irix Edge filter is sold in an aesthetic and functional case that provides protection both during storage and transportation.

The filters will be available soon through a wide network of worldwide distributors. Recommended retail prices are:

Irix Edge Light Pollution (SE) 67mm – €95
