Product Highlights
  • Basic Protection Filter
  • Minimizes Bluish Cast
  • Protects Lens Element

The 77mm UV Protector Filter is a wise initial investment. It can help protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs. A UV filter not only minimizes the bluish cast sometimes found under daylight conditions, but is also the best available protection against accidental damage to the front element of your lens.

A UV filter is the best available protection for the front element of your lens. A lens that accidentally gets dropped on its front element while hiking can potentially be saved by purchasing this item. Some people refer to them as "cheap insurance".

Aside from that more-than-significant benefit, UV filters cut through some of the haze in the atmosphere rendering your photos clearer, sharper and more contrasty. For those who enjoy outdoor photography, especially distant vistas, a UV filter can produce a more distinct image by removing much of the blue tint normally associated with atmospheric haze.

A UV Protector is probably the most popular UV filter people use. As a lens protector, it should be left on at all times to guard against front element damage but also adds the benefit of rendering your images clearer.

Eliminates some of the Ultraviolet (UV) light which can register on film and videotape as a bluish cast that can obscure distant details
If desired, it can be left on the lens at all times for protection

    This is the very first accessory you should buy
    (actually for ANY lens)! You've just spent good money on a finely engineered chunk of glass---protect it! No matter how careful a photographer you are,no matter how often you use a lens cap, this filter is STILL about the wisest investment you can make. Tiffen makes a consistently great product, in a variety of sizes, which attaches smoothly & evenly----no distortion, ever.
    Highly recommended.

    I found that this filter actually slowed my lens down. Camera metering selected faster shutter speeds across all apertures when the filter wasn't used and I never had this problem with other lens using UV protectors from different brands. The filter also induced flaring when my lens was wide open and a bright light source was in the shot. I repeated the shot without the filter and the issue cleared up.

    So yes, this filter is cheap and if you're spending good money on good glass, this filter will only diminish your investment.

        Comments about Tiffen 77mm UV Protector Filter:

        I ordered this Tiffen UV filter to dust seal my Canon 17-40 F/4 L Lens. Arizona has some of the most distuctive dust on Earth and plenty of it, so I thought I'd get ahead of the game before the dust becomes expensive. I'm using this on a crop sensor so I can't say if it would be a problem on a full frame due to filter thicknes (vignetting corners) at the wide end. So far I haven't noticed any adverse effects but then again I haven't shot a lot of photos with it yet in different light situations.

          I very quickly stopped using this protector as it caused massive amounts of very unnatural-looking glare (as in big spots, not just pretty rainbows-like glare).

                  I bought this mainly to provide a bit of protection for the new lens I bought. It works great. There is no degradation in the image that I can see and it helps to insure that if I'm shooting pictures of one of my dogs, they can't move in close and lick the lens directly!

                    These filter work as advertised, and they are nice and clear. You get what you pay for, and these are a bit on the delicate side, but at this cost, you can afford to buy a few as spares.
