About Tiffen

These filters absorb Ultra Violet (UV) light. Film is more sensitive to Ultra Violet light than our eyes. This often shows up as a haze or a bluish cast, especially when shot from high altitudes and from long distances, particularly over water.

UV filters also help protect your lens from dust, moisture, fingerprints, scratches and damage from cleaning.

Since they absorb no normal light and have no effect on color or contrast, they can be kept on your lens at all times.

Tiffen Ultra Violet filters are available in a variety of absorbtion levels and sizes.

UV filter ---------- Standard UV. Most popular protection filter.
UV MC -------------- Multi coated for extra flare protection.
UV Warm ------------ Combines UV with Tiffen's '812' warming filter.
Haze 1 ------------- Absorbs 75% of UV light.
Haze 2 --------------Absorbs 100% of UV light.
Haze 15--------------Absorbs 81% of UV light.

Haze 17 ------------ Absorbs almost all UV light.

Simple efficiency

I use this filter on my Olympus Zuiko 17mm f2.8 lens for uv protection and all around lens protection. It fits perfectly and does the job. No complaints.

A Protective Element

By

from Jacksonville, FL  -  Photo Enthusiast

TIFFEN 37mm UV (Ultra Violet) Glass Filter – I use this as a protective element for the 14mm-42mm zoom that was part of my purchase of the Olympus PEN E-PL5 kit. I have not detected any visual issues while using this item.

Lens Protector

It's inexpensive and will protect your lens. However, I've taken photos with and without this and the ones without are better. I replaced it with a B+W.

great UV filter for GX1

By

from Seattle  -  Photo Enthusiast

Was worried about the new power zoom for Panasonic GX1. Lens on it seems to be vulnerable to scratches, getting this UV filter was to protect the lens more than for UV. Seems to be nice little filter so far.

Does the job

By

from Tacoma, WA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I haven't used the camera with the filter enough to give a really definitive review. I've used it indoors so far so that the UV function hasn't really been tried out. It did screw on easily and it does provide protection.

Great Value

By

from Washington, DC  -  Photo Enthusiast

Used on Canon HG20 and also on Sony Handicam HD I'm using this filter to protect the lens on the video cameras and also to block dust from entering them. The best thing about this filter is the price.
