Product Highlights
  • Helps to Eliminate Reflections and Glare
  • Reduces Haze and Blue Cast in Landscapes
  • Greater Color and Tonal Saturation
  • ColorCore Technology

The Tiffen 37mm Linear Polarizer Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.

A linear polarizer only differs from a circular polarizer in that it does not contain a quarter wave plane that enables use of auto focus and exposure features. Linear polarizers are best suited for use with manual cameras, such as view cameras, that are not dependent on internal mechanisms to determine focus or metering settings.

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 10,000th of an inch, and then mounting to precision metal rings.

          Not up to the quality of my B&W filters

                Comments about Tiffen 37mm Linear Polarizer Filter:

                When I rotate the polarizing element I feel a sloppy kind of looseness that I don't experience with my B&W polarizers. You get what you pay for.

                When nothing else will do, polarize.

                  Comments about Tiffen 37mm Linear Polarizer Filter:

                  The company I work for stuck me with a point and shoot camera because of one specialized feature. Of course, it didn't have a polarizer. Fortunately there was a 37mm to be found. I am still fumbling a little with the tiny size, but it does just what is needed.

                    Comments about Tiffen 37mm Linear Polarizer Filter:

                    While shooting a wedding venue from the outside the client came up to me and said, "you know you're going to get nothing but your reflection in the glass?" Now it's lesson time, explaining to the client that by turning the bezel on the Polarizing Filter I can eliminate my reflection in the glass and off the water, the client. being an elderly gentleman was amazed at todays technology. End of lesson from a whipper snapper!
