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:
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 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.
One reason why the Tiffen 67 Circular Polarizer is popular is because of its Clear optics

Thin mount means that it won't vignette when my lens is zoomed to its widest angle (16mm, in this case). Effective at a good price.
Most Liked Negative Review
I purchased this for my Pentax K10. Lens attaches easily but you cannot attache the lens cover to the filter. You have to buy a lens cap that threads onto the filter. A lens cap that is designed for clipping on to the filter will not stay on.

Used for landscapes, to darken sky and show clouds; also for product work with shiny subjects.
Must have product for every photographer. Filter is great and Adorama shipped it very fast
I had a Polarizing filter when shooting film. I bought this for my DSLR. If there's blue in the sky, this will bring it out and works magically on (non-metallic) reflections!
Great for removing glare
This used filter was in excellent condition and it fit perfectly the filter holder purchased from the UK for a new Nikon P520, which was also purchased from Adorama.
I use it for outdoor photography and am very pleased with it. Reasonable price and easy to use.
excellent for removing glare from sun and bright objects
I use the filter to help deepen the color of the sky when the light is too bright. It is a somewhat subtle effect -- you have to view it carefully through the camera as you slowly turn the filter, then readjust the exposure. It is said to be useful for photographing rainbows, but I have not had that opportunity. I consider it an essential part of my photo gear.
Great little addition to my bag. Really helpful in making the clouds pop and getting reflections under control. If you shoot outdoors, you need one!
Haven't used yet, but delivery and product condition on arrivel were good - as was price. Fine work by Android
