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.
Note! Tiffen wide-angle filters have low profile rings to prevent 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.
Needed glass to protect by lens. This is a good choice
My husband ordered this skylight filter for the lens he surprised me with. It will protect the lens from scratches. It is much cheaper than having to replace the lens.
I bought this Filter to go with the Tamron 18-270mm lens. It was packaged nicely, and mounts perfectly to the lens as a protection for the lens. Very satisfied.
VERY GOOD FILTER AT A VERY LOW PRICE.
Any time use to protect camera lens, warms up a little bit and increase the contrast . NO MORE HAZY PHOTOS
Really good price, [...]
the colors have a better definition in the pictures, the change is remarkable.
With Tiffen quality, you needn't worry about image degradation.
