The Tiffen UV Protector Filter is a general use, clear filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. This filter is especially useful when photographing at high altitudes or around bodies of water. No additional coloration or contrast is provided, allowing you to pair this filter with others.
The UV filter is also useful as a general protective filter to leave on lenses at all times. Filters help to reduce dust and moisture from reaching your lens element and provide additional protection in case of drops or situations where scratching could occur.
Tiffen filters are made using ColorCore technology; a process that involves laminating the filter substrate between 2 pieces of optical glass, grinding flat to a tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch, then mounting to precision metal rings.
I've used Tiffen filters. An old company and made in USA
Excellent product. Very well made and nice fit and finish.
I started taking pictures at the height of the 35mm film days. Back then a UV filter served a useable function especially with glare involved in the shot. Modern lenses and digital cameras eliminate the need, but I like the lens protection of a UV filter. The Tiffen lens I bought serves this function well without changing the photograph noticably.
