Product Description

Protect your lens with a Tiffen UV Protection filter
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.

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.

By the 3rd or 4th photo with this lens I was noticing strange colours through my viewfinder. It didn't take long to see (by removing the lens) that the lens was not anti-reflective and these reflections were being seen and recorded on my pictures. I've returned the item - it's nothing more than a cheap piece of glass that's not even securely fixed in the screw ring!

I cannot fault this item, it fits my Panasonic FZ18 perfectly, with no colour change in the printed pictures and fitting was very easy.
But Why did it take 5 Weeks to arrive?

Filters nearly always feel 'right', or not, on first handling.

If it screws on neatly, progressively tightening and then stays secure but not when screwed tightly - and then unscrews in exactly the same way, getting easier as it goes, then you've got a good one.

In my opinion (I've been photographing, to some degree, for forty years) spending as much as one can on a well-known brand doesn't necessarily reap the rewards the salespeople will tell you. Essentially, it's just a flat, plain piece of glass that you need but it's how that is kept in place that's more important.

Yes, this a UV filter but that effect is almost nil and so to me it's purely to protect a lens' front element. In my case, a pro-standard Nikkor G 85mm f1.8. Any debate about this filter not being multicoated is offset by the lens' deep hood and being of longer focal length and so won't be affected the same way as a complex zoom or wide-angle would.

Tiffen filters are cheaper than many and I've had a couple on other lenses; all have lasted well and not fallen apart. I would strongly suggest though, that savings made on a UV/Protector filter is put toward a decent polariser - a true filter that will dramatically improve your photos and where getting the best you can afford really does pay dividends.

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

Good to protect the lens, but as soon as there are bright lights in the picture it causes nasty reflections, which are not always easy to spot on the camera screen or viewfinder.
I think the only way around this is to take off the filter in bright light situations.
That, or probably spend a fortune on a filter, although I'm not sure there are 100% free reflections UV filters out there. And if you have to use a £100 filter to protect your lens, then you might feel you need a filter to protect your filter, what could lead you on to a spiral of using more and more filters and incidentally to abstract/psychadelic photography.

I bought this for my Nikon D40 (excellent value from Amazon) but decided it was a false economy. There is little point in buying a quality SLR and then putting an uncoated filter on the supplied kit lens, in low light this filter produces reflected images of any highlight in shot, in some circumstances it will do the same in daylight. Of course it protects the front element of your lens and prevents dust intrusion, but you can't just fit and forget as there are some circumstances when you would need to remove it.
