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 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've only had the product a couple of weeks but have been impressed in its ability to cut down on reflections and make skies more appealing. This polarizer does not seem to cut down on the sharpness of my photos. I wish that it was multi-coated, but honestly don't know if my photos would look better

          Comments about Tiffen 77mm Circular Polarizing Filter:

          It's a good low cost filter, but feels a little tight. Having not spent hundreds of dollars on the top of the line, however I can say it's still a very good filter.

            I purchased this filter along with the 58mm to 77mm adapter so I can use it with both of my main lenses. On my recent trip to Zion, it provided very nice contrast for both the sky and vivid colors of Zion's canyon.

                          I have been using some version of this same polarizer for years (multiple lenses, multiple cameras). I absolutely locve the color it provides. My one complaint is that it is too easy to accidently screw off and lose or drop it - that's actually why I had to replace it yet again. It seems like theyshould be able to make some kind of locking mechanism so it doesn't just fall when it has been rotated one too many times.

                          Bought this for Nikon 10-24mm and it works perfectly. You turn it around to match the scene and desired effect. It allows to shoot through water or on contrary get more intence reflections depending on the filter position. No vignetting if used alone even at 10mm lens. But can't be staked with other filters on ultrawide lens as there will be vignetting. At moderately wide angles can be staked with one more filter. It is not extra thin but thin enough for Nikon AF-S 10-24mm lens.

                          Working great on all my normal lenses, but it shows some artifacts on my wide-angle lens (10-20mm on crop) when polarization is set close to the maximum (dialing it back a bit reduces the artifacts or removes them fully).

                          Can definitely recommend it if you are looking for a reasonable priced CPL.

                                  I typically use Tiffen filters because of the price. I have yet to feel that I've sacrificed quality with Tiffen. This Polarizing filter is no exception. It provides a nice blue sky and increases color saturation as well as cutting down on glare. It does everything it's supposed to do with no loss in image quality that I can detect. I use it with a Canon 24-105mm lens.

                                    Used with my Sigma 17-50 f/2.8. Makes everything look better. There is no good reason for Tiffen filters to cost less than other top brands, but they do. Stack a Linear Polarizer on top of a Circular Polarizer for a DIY variable ND Filter on the cheap. B & H price was less than that found on [@] !!! Add free shipping, no tax, and you've got my business B&H. Thanks again !!!

                                      Comments about Tiffen 77mm Circular Polarizing Filter:

                                      I bought this filter to replace a cheap (possibly duplicate too!) marumi filter. It worked really well on my wide angle 17-40 lens with no visible deterioration of the image. But on my 400 mm the filter showed a slight reduction in the sharpness..so i returned it to BHphotovideo and got the BNW filter instead. Which works perfectly fine on my 400 mm 5.6 lens!

                                          Happy with the optical quality and feel so far. Couldn't ask for more! Threads seem to be good thus far.
