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 15--------------Absorbs 81% of UV light.

Placed on a new telephoto lens for protection. Fits very nicely.


Good Filter to use for Lens protection


from Pittsburgh  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I primarily use to protect my front glass and expect nothing more. The filter didn't affect the quality of the image by any means. I don't use it for filtering UV rays or anything fancy like it. I just use it to protect the glass in the front.


Good price to do what it needed.


from Long Island, NY  -  Casual Photographer

Good price to just do what need to be done.


Worth the money

Worth the money and works great
