I'm about to shoot a short student film, set on a ferry, and in the surrounding bay. I am going to shoot on 50D 7201, and the forecast is for sun (which is what I am hoping).
None of my lecturers have mentioned UV filters, and everything I have seen shot in similar conditions by others on my course have come out alright without using a UV filter.
But I keep reading that film doesn't necessarily cope well with UV light, particularly around water and on sunny days. (I don't have the money to shoot tests)
If anyone could tell me what would be the worst that could happen without a UV filter, and if I should be able to get away without one I'd really appreciate it.

If you were shooting tungsten stock, the 85B filter has a UV correction built-in.
Modern color negative stocks are less sensitive to fogging from UV.
