Tiffen 77mm 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 had a polarizing filter about 25 years ago, misplaced it and finally decided to get a new one, my lens takes 77m size and looking at the prices I was taken aback for a moment, some were several hundred dollars and then I came acrss the Tiffen one. I use it mainly to shoot outdoor scenes and apart from eliminating the normal glare from swimming pools or fountains it is amazing how rich the colors become on things you would never think had glare. It is a great product, have used it about 10 times since buying it.

    I used this on a 24-105L Canon Lens.

    I have a 58 Hoya that I love. It has a small white line to assist with 'aiming' the filter at a consistent angle during a pan for panoramas.

    This filter does not. It simply has the Tiffen text on the rim. Also, it is not near as easy to thread on as other filters I own. It does work well once it is on, and is well worth the price. I am just used to the ease of mount and setup of my Hoya perhaps.

              i traded this in for a hoya multi-coated cpl. this will do the job on the cheap. the effect is great. image quality is decent but the filter isn't coated so you get some flares and reflections from the sun.

                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"

                  Using with a 10-24mm lens. Does what it's supposed to do. Be careful stacking with other filters like a uv because you'll get heavy darkening in the corners.

                        I purchased this filter as a starter filter since I have never used a Polarizing filter before. The little I have used it I have noticed a difference in the photos but as other reviewers have said, not a lot. I will continue to take photos and see what kind of results I get with it under different conditions. If I like the results I get, I will probably purchase a more expensive filter.

                        Over all, as a starter filter it works.
