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.

Very good filter


from Galloway  -  Photo Enthusiast

Very good filter for a very reasonable price.


Replacement protection


from Effie, MN  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This filter was a replacement for an identical one which was damaged in the process of saving the glass on my lens. In my bag, this filter has no other real purpose than to protect a considerably more expensive piece of equipment. It does that job admirably.




from Redding, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Good lens protection with out breaking the bank.
