This kit consists of a: a UV Protection filter, an 812 Warming filter, a circular polarizer and 4-pocket filter pouch.

UV Protection Filters
Haze(UV) filters are wise initial investments. They help protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs. If desired they can be left on the lens at all times for protection. Haze filters provide additional benefits of correction for Ultraviolet(UV) light which can register on film and videotape as a bluish cast and can obscure distant details. Ultraviolet filters allow you to correct for the UV effect to varying degrees.

812 Filters
Tiffen's exclusive 812 Filter improves skin tones and is ideal for portraits taken on a cloudy day or outdoors in shade on a sunny day. It also absorbs blue cast often caused by electronic flash and adds warmth to pale washed-out flesh tones.

Circular Polarizers
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. Filter factor is between 2.3 and 2.8 (approx. +1.3 stops).

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

        Comments about Tiffen 58mm Photo Essentials Filter Kit:

        I bought this kit mostly for the UV protection filter, which I leave on full time as an extra layer of protection for my lenses. The other filters are for occasional use.

        The circular polarizer does provide dramatic changes in sky shots - from light to deep blue.

        As others have said, the filters do tend to cross thread making them somewhat difficult to put on. This limits my use for outdoor shots which tend to require speed before the subject runs or flies off.

        The little pouch is a useful addon and is flat enough to fit easily in the front pouch of my camera bag.

        I wanted to add a filter for video work. These fit the camera nicely. The kit allows me to change the setting easily and nicely. Great price. Also the protective pouch holds the filters nice and secure and take no real room in my gear back.

                    Recommended for entry-level users not wanting to spend a fortune.

                        The UV lens stays on my camera mainly for protection. I use the 58mm Circular Polarizer on very bright days and have had nice effects during late evening when the sun goes down - esp with smoke from forest fires in the air. I have only used the 812 Color Warming filter a few times. Not sure I see much of a change - maybe change will be evident once I purchase some other lenses.

                          So starting out with my first DSLR, I got this sent of filters as a gift, along with an 0.6 ND filter, to get me going and cover the basics. In all honesty, at first I thought the warming filter was just an extra bonus. But it produced amazing results when I first used it for a series of portrait photos at a local, monthly convention I attend here in Nashville, TN.

                          This is a great kit and comes in a nice pouch, and is really all self explanatory, though experimentation is always a good thing.

                            These filters are great. They do not have that cheap feel like many filters do at a local store. Have not had a chance to fully use them all yet. I am very happy with them. :)

                                    Great buy for 3 filters. I use the UV to protect my lens and the other 2 I keep in my bag for whenever I need them.
