About Tiffen 58 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.

Polarizes come in two types:

Circular -- for all types of cameras: required for beam splitting metering systems commonly found in auto-focus SLR's and in most curretn TTL Slr's.

Linear -- for older metering systems.


Tiffen polarizers are available in the follow variations:

Standard Linear.

Standard Circular.

Warm Circular -- polarizer plus 812 warming filter.

Wide Angle Circular -- a thin filter designed to avoid vignetting at the edges from larger wide angle lenses.

Unlucky esperience

It's possible this cp filter is good. The one I received didn't have proper threading. Adorama is currently accepting my return, but I think I'll try the Hoya filter instead of buying this again.

Choose your own reflections!

By

from Hampton, VA  -  Pro Photographer

I document quite a lot of artwork for galleries and this lens drastically reduces the odd reflection from shiny objects and glazing. I use pretty wide prime lenses 28, 50, etc. (on a crop sensor camera) and I haven't noticed any vignetting. I've noticed I've had to bump my exposures a stop or so than normal but it does help colors be a bit more saturated. A great filter for a great price!

Brings great color to one's photos

By

from Narragansett, RI  -  Photo Enthusiast

Great for producing deep blue skies when the sun is at your back or over a shoulder. Unfortunately, all my lenses are of different diameters, so I have to buy a few more of these polarizing filters.

Great Filter for Sky Effects

By

from Florida  -  Pro Photographer

Tiffen filters have great performance, and this standard circular polarizer is no exeception. Enhances sky and clouds for improved contrast. Reduces glare and reflections from water and windows.

Inexpensive backup filters

By

from Poulsbo, WA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I have Dropped Polarizers into canyons & rivers, spinning them during composing. It always pays to have a couple of spares during travel

Review of Tiffen 58mm Circular Polarizer

By

from Salisbury, MA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use this filter attached to a Bower Adapter Tube for my Canon Powershot G15. The filter has a good solid feel when attaching and turning the filter ring to adjust for polarization. The polarization effect seems to be color neutral. Since I started using this polarizer my daytime landscape photos have improved greatly due to the more vivid colors now possible in the sky and on water.

Tiffen 58mm Circ Polarizer

By

from MI  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I use this on my Pentax 55 to 300mm lens. Threads screwed on the lens just fine. I could see the difference thru the view finder when I turned the filter. So much better than the filter I was using. Good filter at a good affordable price.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Gene B  For eliminating glare.
Shopper  Does the polarizing lens rotate?
RICHARD M  Yes, it does rotate.
Patricia R  Is the Tiffen 58mm Circular Polarizer Glass Filter meant to be used on a Canon EOS Rebel digital camera?
Patricia R  Thanks everyone! I wasn't as concerned with the "fit" as with the appropriateness of this lens for my camera. A gentleman at a photo shop told me that I should buy a $90 polarizibg lens that was specifically meant for digital cameras. Your responses are very encouraging! !
