Product Highlights
  • Clear Protection Filter
  • Water White Glass Construction
  • ColorCore Technology

The Tiffen 52mm Digital Ultra Clear Filter is a simple, clear filter designed for general protection for your lens. This optically clear filter does not affect the overall image quality while helping reduce dust, scratches, moisture, and other elements from damaging your lens. Its Water White glass construction is optically pure and maintains consistent light transmission and clarity.

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 1/10,000th of an inch, then mounting to precision metal rings.

Clear filter offers general protection for your lens against the elements.
Water White glass is optically pure for providing notable image fidelity and clarity.

      I bought 2 of these to use as protection only. They will keep your lenses safe from dust and moisture. Since these are clear they will not change the color of your pictures. I also had one on a 70-300mm shooting through a chain-link fence and got to close to the fence. When my lens auto-focused it scratched the filter a little but NOT the lens. Well worth the small price.

      Ghosting and Flare Issues

      Bought it as a protective lens cover. Great for keeping dust and dirt from the lens but I noticed that night scenes suffer from excessive ghosting and flare.

          I think this filter is clear enought, I've use it on day and night, and it's really nice, the only thing I don't like about it is that lights reflects keep coming to my lens and in the pictures you see the spot or spots of lights, but then I should be looking for another type of filter, but till now no scracht on it.

            Tiffen Ultra Clear filters are a great way to protect your lenses without changing your exposure. Think about it: Which would you rather replace, a scratched lens worth $1500 or a scratched filter that costs a fraction of that?

              It is with no doubt a very good protection filter for my Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake Lens. I prefer B+W MRC scoth glass filters for my most expensive lenses, but for a pancake lens, this is great: very durable, great uv protection and most important, lens protection for a very god price.

                Was going to buy the Nikon brand and then a friend recommended Tiffen. Glad I bought this instead. Great quality, no ghosting.Fits the Nikon 35mm/1.8 perfectly and still allows the lens cover to attach, which I was a bit worried about as some filters cramp out the cover.For this price, it protects my lens! Easy choice.

                  Tiffen did a great job of making a super clear lens for protecting my Lumix 52mm lens at a super cheap price. Using it keeps my lens clean and it does not change the clarity and precision of my shots. Cool

                              So you have bought that expensive lense, it is time to protect it in more ways than one. I like the ultra clear better than others I have used. Do not put a super cheap filter on your expensive lense.

                              Love this filter.
