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 15--------------Absorbs 81% of 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


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


from Albuquerque, NM  -  Semi-pro Photographer

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.

Tiffen 37mm UV (Ultra Violet) Glass Filt


from San Rafael, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Primarily for lens protection and UV filtering


great UV filter for GX1


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.


Nice filter


from Ontario, Canada  -  Casual Photographer

Clear, clean protector


Does the job


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.


Excellent Quality Filter


from Georgetown, Texas  -  Photo Enthusiast

Protects my lens


Tiffen 37mm UV Filter


from Northwest Ohio  -  Casual Photographer

Fits perfectly on our Samsung HMX HD Camcorder. Provides both lens protection and UV filtering for our southern Utah vacations.


Great Value


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.
