  • Low-Profile Titanium Filter Ring
  • ColorCore Technology

The Tiffen 52mm UV Haze 86 Digital HT Filter is a general use, clear filter that helps to absorb 86% of ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. This is especially useful when photographing at high altitudes or around bodies water. No additional coloration or contrast is provided, allowing you to pair this filter with others.

The UV filter is also useful as a general protective filter to leave on lenses at all times. Filters help to reduce dust and moisture from reaching your lens element and provide additional protection in case of drops or situations where scratching could occur.

The Digital HT coating is a high transmission multi-coating that surpasses military specifications for hardness and durability. This optical purity combined with high scratch-resistance results in an easy-to-clean filter with superb imaging quality. They also feature low-profile titanium filter rings for increased strength and vignetting reduction.

          Comments about Tiffen 52mm UV Haze 86 Digital HT Filter:

          I appreciate the fact that this does a much better job of actually absorbing UV light compared to the B+W 010 "haze" filter. I have Olympus cameras which are sensitive to UV light so I can tell that it's doing its job.Unfortunately, the Tiffen coating isn't as effective at reducing ghosting (reflections of bright spots inside the frame) compared to the B+W MRC coating, so I don't recommend it for indoor use where there will be lights in the frame that could cause ghosts. I haven't noticed any issues using the filter outdoors in daylight.

              Comments about Tiffen 52mm UV Haze 86 Digital HT Filter:

              If one spends a fortune on great lenses, then it makes sense to only use great filters. Tiffen quality matches that of the lenses their filters are attached to. I use Tiffen filters exclusively for my Nikon, Hasselblad, and Zeiss lenses. The high transmission filters are nearly invisible and seem to have minimal impact on exposure settings, which is particularly helpful in very low light.
