Skylight filters are Ultra Violet protection plus. Like Ultra Violet (UV) filters, they absorb almost half of UV light, but they also have a very slight pink tint.
When shooting outdoors in open shade or on overcast days, the 'Sky' filter adds warmth and reduces excess blue giving better color rendition.
It is the mildest of warming filters and absorbs only 1/10th of an f-stop of light, therefore requiring no exposure compensation.
Tiffen skylight filters are available in most sizes in standard, mutli-coated for extra flare protection, and thin glass wide angle mount for larger wide angle lenses. vbr>
Note! Tiffen wide-angle filters have low profile rings to prev ent vignetting which can occur when using standard filters on ultra wide angle lenses. They do not have a front thread, and can not accept standard snap on lens caps
I use this filter for everyday photos. Protects lens and adds a very slight warmish tint to photos. Especially good for outdoor shots; eliminates the bluish cast on those shots caused by sky reflections and UV light.
Use as protective filter. Great.
A skylight filter is a must for all my lens. Its is the best way to protect the front of a lens.
Installs easily, threads on both sides work with other vendor's products. Used as both filtering and protection for lens, they're installed on all our lenses. Better quality than other filters and they're US-made.
Great for my 28mm equivalent lens. There is no more vignetting at the corners. Big negative: The outside of the lens does not have recess so the lens cap does not fit. In order to store the lens, you must remove the filter so you can put on the lens cap on. It sorta defeats the purpose of using the skylight filter in the first place, that is to constantly protect the lens from damage.
I have allways use Tiffen and the only Fiters that I will recommend
