Filters can dramatically alter the character of the light that enters a lens
and they can have a wide variety of uses, from simple protection of the
lens surface to restricting certain wavelengths of light or polarising the
Conventional sensors are designed to convert the light falling on the
front side of the sensor to electrons. As discussed in the article Pixel size and well capacity not all
the sensor surface is sensitive to light as the pixel also needs control
electronics limiting the fill factor.
