Tiffen 62mm Circular Polarizer Filters - Light rays which are reflected become polarized. Polarizing filters are used to select which light rays enter your camera lens. They can remove unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water or glass and also saturate colors providing better contrast. The effect can be seen through the viewfinder and changed by rotating the filter. The filter factor varies according to how the filter is rotated and its orientation to the sun.

If you're out walking on a lovely day - in the mountains or at the beach - and you want to get a fabulous shot of a cloud-filled sky or make the water seem more saturated, then a polarizer is the way to go. This filter is the best way to make the clouds stand out, increase or decrease the saturation of the ocean or increase or decrease the reflection off the water. You can also use this filter when shooting into glass or windows since it will, again, either increase or decrease reflections.

If you're shooting black and white and want to simulate a threatening storm, try throwing on a #25 Red filter. The vista will take on the appearance of an imminent, ominous storm. 

Along with a UV or Skylight Filter, a polarizing filter should be a part of everyone's gear bag. It can turn a run-of-the-mill image into a stunning, creative photo by increasing color saturation.  

Note! Circular polarizers are specifically designed for use with auto-focus SLR cameras (They will also work on manual systems without problems)

This filter eliminates ultraviolet rays from outdoor shots as well as polarizing the light to remove reflections, and increase color saturation, without affecting the overall color balance

      I'm not a professional photographer, however I ordered 5 filters all made by Tiffen (UV and Polarized) and I'm very pleased with them all! This particular filter screws on very easily, is very secure and rotates for selecting the perfect amount of polarizing. The frame is small enough that you can add other filters on top of this without worrying about them being in your imagery. It also comes with a nice durable plastic case that I use for storing it when I have an alternate filter on my camera.

      In conclusion, I would recommend this filter!

      I am using this filter with a Vivitar .43x wide angle lens as recommended but it creates an undesirable circle in the field of view when attached to the wide angle converter. Don't know if I am missing something but that was not the expected result with this filter.

          I needed this polarizing filter for a recent fall foliage photo vacation. As advertised, it made the blue sky bluer as well as enhancing a variety of colors among the leaves. Used on my Canon DSLR camera, it made adjusting the degree of polarization extremely easy.

              Does what it is suppose to at reasonable price. Perhaps a professional photographer would be a le to know difference between images using this filter compared to those costing 10x the price. As advanced amateur I can't. I am very happy with it.

                    Creates nice blue skies and clear water. Captured a turtle under water with this. Without it, only the turtle's head was visible due to glare off the water's surface.

                      This filter does its job well for the price. There is no need to go out and purchase $ filters when you can experience nearly the same quality in this filter. Little to no colour cast, excellent build quality and relatively thin rim. Excellent accessory to throw on your lens to greatly enhance your outdoor photography. Also doubles approximately as a 2 stop "ND Polarizer".For the price of this filter, its not worth getting a 77mm filter and using a step up ring. I purchased this filter in the exact size of my primary lens so i could also use my lens hood. Step up rings and lens hoods don't mix.

                                Comments about Tiffen 62mm Circular Polarizing Filter:

                                The only issue with this circular polarizer is that it is easy to accidentally catch the threaded base (rather than the free-spinning filter mount) and remove the filter entirely, rather than simply rotating it.

                                  I used this polarizer last week in Cades Cove, Tennessee and Cataloochee, NC on a Nikon D7000 with a Tamron 18-270 VC lens.
                                  It produced excellent color and contrast with skies, clouds and water reflections.

                                    Comments about Tiffen 62mm Circular Polarizing Filter:

                                    I take a lot of outside photos here in Maryland and it is so bright most of the time that the color just doesn't show up in my photos. This polarizing filter helps add color back to the sky to match the color in my landscape.
