About Tiffen 52 Circular Polarizer

Polarizer filters give you several key creative features.

They evenly increase color saturation of all colors (except black and white), creating deep, rich scenics.

They add contrast for dramatic skies and ariel shots.

They eliminate the whitish glare from highly reflected surfaces like glass and water.

Polarizers are two part lenses that rotate, allowing you to select the degree of additional saturation, contrast and glare reduction desired.

Tiffen polarizers are offered in standard and warm versions. Warm polarizers add Tiffen's exclusive 812 warming filter, giving portraits and scenics a warm and muted feel while retaining rich coloration.

Tiffen Circular Polarizer Filter

By

from Sun City West, AZ  -  Photography Student

I wanted a reasonably priced polarizing filter and have been told by others to select these made by Tiffen. I'm an amateur photographer learning a new hobby and this will be of great use to me as I live in AZ where sunshine is very much a huge consideration for outdoor photography. Haven't found anything that isn't great about it.

GOOD PRODUCT

By

from COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO

I RECEIVED MY NIKON D5100 CAMERA FROM ADORAMA...THE POLARIZER FILTER WAS IN THE BOX AND WAS SUGGESTED BY THE ADORAMA SALES REP OVER THE PHONE AS I DID NOT KNOW WAHT TO ORDER..I AM GLAD I LISTENED TO HIM ...THE FIRST THING I NOTICED WHEN EVERYTHING ARRIVED WAS HOW WELL THE ITEMS WERE PACKED WITH LOTS OF BUBBLE WRAP, ECT. THE BOX ITSELF WAS DAMAGED IN SHIPPING (UPS FAULT)..BUT THE CAMERA AND ACCESSORIES WERE VERY PROTECTED. WHEN I GOT THE CAMERA OUT ..IT LOOKED LIKE A BRAND NEW CAMERA AND CAMERA SUPPLES (MEMORY CARD, FILTERS, ECT) WERE ALL NEW AND PACKAGING IN GREAT CONDITION...I WAS VERY IMPRESSED SEEING THIS IS THE FIRST REFURBISHED CAMERA I HAVE EVER BOUGHT. WHEN I CHECKED THE ACTUATIONS ON IT I WAS IMPRESSED THAT IT WAS A LITTLE LESS THAN 500. MY WHOLE EXPEREINCE WITH THIS CAMERA PURCHASE AND ADORAMA WAS VERY PLEASANT. I HAD CALLED THE ORDER IN AND THE GUY THAT TOOK IT GAVE ME VERY GOOD TREATMENT AND LOTS OF HELPFUL ADVICE.,

Quality at a reasonable price.

By

from Chandler, Arizona  -  Photo Enthusiast

Used for landscape and lake photography. Lens removes the haze and produces a clear blue sky. The glare on the water surface was completely eliminated in most photos.

Makes the clouds pretty!

By

from New York  -  Photo Enthusiast

It's a good filter! I did not screw it on well (a bit of a problem to attach but probably the same with all filters) and lost it, but bought another. (Problem was most probably my carelessness) It really helps in landscapes and clouds - makes blue skies blue.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Ron R  Reasonably priced polarizer that can adjust to cut down flare and improve colors and contrast, especially in blue skies.
LAURA S  Will this filter fit on my Nikon 52 mm lens? Someone noted that it did not. What experience did others have?
GUY K  It fits just fine and works great on both of my Nikon DX 52mm diameter lenses. The inner ring screws in to the lens or another filter and the outer ring with the polarizer attached is free to rotate.
Shopper  Is this filter coated?, if not, do you think I should go for a coated one?
BEN T  I've never used, or even considered a coated one. One can combine filters if desired. Mine works very well all alone.
