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 1 ------------- Absorbs 75% of UV light.
Haze 2 --------------Absorbs 100% of UV light.
Haze 15--------------Absorbs 81% of UV light.
Haze 16--------------Absorbs 86.5% of UV light
Haze 17 ------------ Absorbs almost all UV light.
UV Wide Angle Thin - UV filter for use with wide angle lenses.

Good product, protects my new lens!

Good basic lens cover to protect the new lens.


Most Liked Negative Review


Too much lens flare and ghosting

I purchased this product for use with a Canon lens/DSLR to be a protective cover for the lens. This lens will create unwanted reflections/ghosting of any light source that is in the frame. This will include any street lights/signs for a night shot, as well as sunlight windows in a daytime interior shot. Basically, this lens cannot be used if there is any kind of light source in frame.

Easiest protection to your investment


from Hopkinsville, KY  -  Casual Photographer

You always read, 'protect your glass'. Sometimes, thats cumbersome due to cost, lack of advise, and what not. This is probably the best option I found. It is a reputable company. Its inexpensive. Fits very well to the glass. Glad I made the choice.


value item


from cape may nj  -  Pro Photographer

functions fine.over the past 35 yrs. i have used every kind of filter imaginable.uv and skylite filters are mainly for lens protection . i don't recomend hi priced filters of this type, they won't work any better.anything will stop uv,including plane glass.if you get multicoated you have to be carefull when cleaning.

Tiffen - my first choice


from Fort Collins, CO  -  Photo Enthusiast

Tiffen is one of my top choices in low to medium-cost filters. I had to return this one but only because I ordered the wrong thread size. Tiffen's thread quality is great.

We all know the importance of protecting our lenses. And this filter is great for that. Clear optics, well made, does what it should at a great price. All my lenses have a Tiffen filter.

ROBERT M  I use it on a Canon lens but the threads are universal so it should work.
