Product Description

Product Description

Tiffen UVP will help protect your lens
Tiffen UV Protection filter

Film, as well as video, often exhibits a greater sensitivity to what is to us invisible, ultraviolet light. This is most often outdoors, especially at high altitudes, where the UV-absorbing atmosphere is thinner; and over long distances, such as marine scenes. It can show up as a bluish colour cast with colour film, or it can cause a low-contrast haze that diminishes details, especially when viewing far-away objects, in either colour or black-and-white. Ultraviolet filters absorb UV light generally without affecting light in the visible region.

Using a Tiffen UV Protector on your Digital HD DSLR

While the UV Protection filter has served its purpose in the film era for many years it will still continue to be one of the most popular choices in accessories today. Digital cameras have blocks, auto correction and digital filters that combat the bluish colour cast therefore making the UV Protection filter a simple protector for your lens to combat dirt, finger prints & that fateful knock or drop.

    This is my very first Protector Filter but so far I can say this is very good.
    It hasn't changed the colour of the pics and on top it has protected from a couple of scratches.
    So far, so good. Highly recommended if you're looking for a standard UV protector

    With the cost of camera lens in the hundreds I thought I better get myself a filter which could double up as a protector should I have an accident. Happy with the filter, once it is screwed on you can forget it is even on. Lens caps clip on to them no problem. As they screw on they can be easily removed again if required. Should I have an accident and drop the camera I'd rather this lens take the impact and crack rather than the lens itself!

    Have used this while taking lots of holiday pictures and they've all come out well.

    I have an original Cannon UV filter aswell. This product is equally as good. Has a thread on the inside as well so you can fit a lens cover or other attachments. Good bargain.

    I have been using three of these under a number of lighting conditions and they have remained totally invisible to the finished result. I have not suffered any flare even in low direct light.

    I bought one of these to protect my Sony 18mm -135mm lens.

    I took some photos of candles - they were ruined by horrible green semi-transparent artifact. It almost looked like lens flare but it was much uglier. I didn't know what the cause was.

    I took some photos of a church illuminated by spotlights - they were ruined by the same artifact... so I started investigating and found that the cause was reflection off the rear surface of the filter. Maybe it was the lens/filter combination but if you buy this filter, make sure you test by photographing some bright light sources.

    Update: I replaced the Tiffen filter with a very expensive multi-coated UV filter and performed tests again. The reflection issue persisted. Some further research indicated that this is a problem with DSLRs where light reflects off the sensor and back through the lens, then hits the rear surface of the filter and bounces back down the lens. The overall verdict seems to be "don't use a UV filter on a DSLR if you don't want reflection artifact".

    The Tiffen filter is no more at fault than any other, it seems.

    I was looking for something to protect the end of my expensive telephoto lens and came across this one.

    From the moment I put it on I haven't regretted it. It threads really easily onto it and I haven't noticed any compromise with the quality of the photos being produced.

    I am going to buying more for my other lenses.

    Essential for all camera lenses, this was the best value for money filter offered on Amazon and should adorn evereybody's lenses, as they are cheaper to replace that a damaged lens itself!

    Go on and buy one for all your lenses, and protect your investment.

    I'm not terribly impressed by this filter. It's fine, but when it arrived, on taking it out of the little plastic box, I noticed that there were fingerprints on the glass. Not very impressive. Plus the label on the plastic box looked like an A-Level Art & Design project - really poor quality and graphical reproduction. With filters, I generally find that money 'saved' with lesser brands is sometimes wasted. I've found that the higher brand is definitely worth it. In order then, you have Tiffen, Hoyo, and the Rolls Royce of filters, B+W. If you are looking for a cheap filter, I'd suggest Hoyo, or go all out and buy B+W. A good filter, looked after, should last a lifetime.
