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.

Saved my lens

My UV filter was on my lens, on the camera in a padded case on a shelf about 5 foot off the carpeted floor in the closet. The case fell off the shelf and the UV filter broke, but NOT the lens... absolutely the best protection for the money. I purchased a new filter right away from Adorama and it was here 3 days later. Thank you Tiffen and Adorama

Not So Good

The filter has little or no anti-glare coating. Lens flare is really bad in most situations. You get what you pay for.

Tiffen 49mm UV (Ultra Violet) Glass Filt

By

from Mesa, AZ  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I used this as a filter spacer by unscrewing the ring and removing the glass. It is a spacer for mounting a HOYA HD UV filter on my FujiFilm X100S. The extra spacing using his ring prevents the camera lens from hitting the HD filter in the CLOSE-UP mode, where the lens extends out as far as the lens body end.

Good, Affordable, Solid!

I needed an affordable UV filter for my old Pentax lens. This is great. Picture quality isn't affected and it's protecting my investment without breaking the bank.

This lens cover is great! I bougjt a sony nex c3 and i bought these right as i got them too to avoid getting any dirt/specs on the actual lenses. Feels great and has a strong, good build to it and fits on easily with no problems

Good filter

Have not tested when there is a lot of UV haze. At least protects the lens.

DAVID L  UV filter to fit new lens
mark q  can i use this with the tiffen 49mm circular pola at the same time on my sony e-mount 18-55mm kit lens?...
JODI N  I have a Sony NEX-5 with standard e-mount 18-55 lens and both the tiffen UV and circular polarizer filters. It does not work having both on for me, because the corners of the image get cut. It works fine with either of them separately, and the circular polarizer has really helped the colors on my landscape shots.
