About Tiffen 62 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.

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.

Tiffen 62mm Circular

By

from Seattle  -  Casual user

My Canon 70D with the Tamron 18-270 lens just seemed a little out of focus when I blew up the pics while using a cheaper ($10) polarizer filter. This circular was a bargain in price and lets the camera achieve perfect focus and exposure. I'd read that DSLR cameras require polarizer lenses to be circular and now I can attest that in my case that is true. I also like that it is thinner than the previous linear polarizer, so there is no corner vignetting at wide angles.

from Macedon, NY  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Using this on my Canon T31 with Tamron lens...am a novice so am not sure yet how we'll this improves shots, but I think for the price it's okay. When I can afford a higher quality, I'll go for that, but for now this filter is fine!

Great filter

By

from Tampa Florida  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I use this filter for a lot of the work I do on the beaches in Florida. It provides a consistent change to the image that is easy to manipulate. I always use Tiffen filters for their quality construction and that they do not introduce artifacts into the image.

Junk

By

from Austin, TX  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought 2 of these -- One was OK and the other was junk. The bad one's threads are too short and the filter falls out of the lens. The rotation is so stiff the lens rotates when trying to adjust the polarizing effect. Oil is also starting to ooze out of the filter.

Don't buy used filters

By

from Escanaba, MI  -  Photo Enthusiast

I love Adorama and they do a great job but I bought this filter used and it was a mistake. It spins so freely it wont stay in place. Worse yet it has no impact on improving my photos. Next time I'll buy new and stick with Hoya or another brand instead of Tiffen.
