An ideal protective filter for outdoor use, the UV Haze 2A from Tiffen is a clear UV filter that helps to reduce haze and unwanted blue color casts when photographing at high altitudes or near water. The 2A strength of this filter is more effective that the standard Haze-1 filter at reducing haze and is especially well-suited for aerial and drone photography applications. Additionally, as a clear filter, it can also be used as general protection for the front of your lens to guard against scratches, fingerprints, dust, and other elements.

The filter is constructed using Tiffen's ColorCore technology, which involves laminating the filter material between two pieces of optical glass, grounding flat to a tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch, and mounting within an aluminum alloy ring.

Absorbs virtually all UV light and reduces bluish cast of daylight.
More effective haze reduction than Haze-1 filter.
Clear filter provides no additional coloration or contrast, allowing you to pair this filter with others.
General protection filter reduces dust, moisture, and scratches from reaching lens elements.

Tiffen Haze 2A filter

This filter is one of the few UV filters has a very nice sharp cut at 400nm, which is what I needed for an optical experiment


works as advertized

Fits my camera and works as advertised.

Best and most affordable 2A filter you can buy

If you have a digital camera sensitive to UV light, this filter really works. In contrast, most so-called "UV filters" don't block enough UV light to make a difference in your photos. This filter eliminates purple fringing when used on my Olympus Micro Four Thirds cameras. This is the filter to get if you hate purple fringing and you think that the tools available to correct it in Lightroom aren't as good as eliminating the problem at the source. Tiffen appears to make perfectly fine high-quality uncoated filters. I can't see paying six times the price for a B+W filter that does the same thing. As long as the sun isn't shining on the filter, I can't detect any loss of image quality with this filter on the camera. On the other hand, because it's uncoated, if the sun is outside the frame but nevertheless shining on the filter, it causes pretty massive ghosting. However, there's no company making a coated version of this type of filter, so this is the best you're going to get, and at a bargain price. I don't recommend using this filter under artificial lighting, because artificial lights don't give off much UV, therefore this filter can't help your image quality under those circumstances, it can only hurt it. It's too bad Tiffen doesn't make these in smaller sizes for mirrorless cameras. I need to use a step-up ring with the 52mm size. UPDATE: Unfortunately, I have seen other instances where this filter caused significant ghosting besides the obvious shooting into the sun. Such as shooting from a dark street into the light on a cloudy overcast day. So the lesson I learned is that one can't assume that this filter will always improve outdoor photos.


good product sloppy assembly

The unit works well but was shipped with the glass lens (filter) loose in it's collar. The collar uses a special type of spanner wrench to secure the glass properly and so can not be tightened with common tools to a secure torque rating.
