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 16--------------Absorbs 86.5% of UV light
Haze 17 ------------ Absorbs almost all UV light.
UV Wide Angle Thin - UV filter for use with wide angle lenses.

I purchased this filter to hopefully prevent some of the hazy effects that I recieved from my last camera. I also wanted it to protect the lense on my camera. After I bought this filter, I read a review that said it wouldn't fit a Panasonic DMC-FZ28. I was worried until it arrived. The review was incorrect. The filter screws on to the end of the lens and it is very snug. I can't even tell it's there. I have seen a reflection only once, but that was before I took the picture, so I was aware ...

I purchased this filter to hopefully prevent some of the hazy effects that I recieved from my last camera. I also wanted it to protect the lense on my camera. After I bought this filter, I read a review that said it wouldn't fit a Panasonic DMC-FZ28. I was worried until it arrived. The review was incorrect. The filter screws on to the end of the lens and it is very snug. I can't even tell it's there. I have seen a reflection only once, but that was before I took the picture, so I was aware an was able to move to a better angle. I have not seen any hazy pictures yet, so that is good. Bottom line, the price is great if the only use is protection for the lense. Everything else is just a bonus! I am satisfied with my purchase.

The Tiffen does the job. Used on my Sigma 60 (m43). It sorta sticks out which is annoying, but it works fine.

No AntiReflective Coating!

By

from san diego, ca  -  Photo Enthusiast

Bought this and put it on my Oly OMD EM5. Whenever I point the camera at any light source, I get distracting reflections from the lens (panny 25mm 1.4) that can be seen in the image. Not the products fault as it doesnt mention it at all, but good thing it was cheap because I am definitely replacing it. So, Buyer beware! Ordering another with AR coating ASAP.

Nice product, good fit, functions well.

In addition to taking some haze out of outdoor shots, a UV filter is a good "safety net" for your lens. I bought the 46mm for a Lumix DMC-FZ35 and it fits great.
