The Tiffen 77mm Digital High Transmission (DHT) Circular Polarizing Multi-Coated Filter is a filter that contains the strength of a titanium coating along with high-end optical glass. Using their patented ColorCore technology, this filter represents the highest scratch-resistant durability available. There is no need to worry about cleaning this filter since the coating protects the surface thereby maintaining the optical quality of the glass.

This filter has a low profile design as well an extra durable filter ring. The "Wow" feature is that Digital HT filters are rated to surpass military specifications for hardness and durability - no small achievement.

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.

Note! Circular polarizers are specifically designed for use with auto-focus SLR cameras (They will also work on manual systems and video cameras without problems)

Benefits

This filter eliminates ultraviolet rays to remove haze from outdoor shots as well as polarizing the light to remove reflections, and increase color saturation, without affecting the overall color balance
State-of-the-art technological breakthrough in multi-coated photo and video filters
Surpass even military specifications for hardness and durability
Low profile titanium ring and anti-reflective black lock ring

ColorCore Technology

Tiffen filters are manufactured using ColorCore technology, a closely guarded proprietary process that entails permanently laminating the filter material in between two pieces of optical glass that are ground flat to tolerances of a ten-thousandth of an inch, then mounting them in precision metal rings
The ColorCore process allows Tiffen to control the color and density of their filters, and the characteristics of special effects filters with much greater accuracy than typical dyed-in-the-mass filters, which usually exhibit color and density variations

Superior Quality

Top Hollywood motion picture studios rely on Tiffen filters for their multi-million dollar productions
Superior quality and design make Tiffen the overwhelming choice of moviemakers, professional photographers and even NASA
Tiffen has also been awarded an Emmy, from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, for its engineering excellence

            I did comparison of with/without the filter on a bright sunny day with patchy cloud cover. The results were awesome. You get much more detail in the clouds, a rich blue sky, and no sacrifice of detail in the shadows. It actually does something to the luma curve that make it feel like the footage has been run through colour correction. I purchased this specifically for an epic documentary film I'm shooting in the snow - and have no regrets.

              Comments about Tiffen 77mm Digital HT (High Transmission) Circular Polarizing Multi-Coated Filter:

              Have only used it a couple of times, but the reviews I read before purchase seem to be true - excellent quality, minimal loss of light, no reflections from the edges of the filter.
              There have been some complaints that it just barely touches the lens (the Canon 24-104mm and others). I called Tiffen and they sent me a TINY spacer to solve the problem - which I received 2 days later. I couldn't be happier.

                          Comments about Tiffen 77mm Digital HT (High Transmission) Circular Polarizing Multi-Coated Filter:

                          I have just received the 77mm Digital HT (High Transmission) Haze 86 Multi-Coated Glass Filter (Please note this is not the 77mm Digital HT (High Transmission) Circular Polarizing Multi-Coated Glass Filter however I’m suspecting this problem affects both of these filters) THE MAIN PROBLEM: The bottom gap for these filters is not enough to accommodate the convex (outward curve of the lense) on my Cannon 24-105mm L4 IS USM lens. So the filter and lens actually have a contact point in the very center that’s the size of a pin head. It can only be seen at an angle while looking into the lens at maximum zoom and was very difficult to take a picture of with my other camera which I hope to send to Tiffen. The combined lenses artifact does not register when I have taken pictures of a while wall. However, the fact remains, that the outer glass element in the lens is in constant contact with the filter glass element, which too me at least is troubling. This may be an issue with some Cannon L Serious lenses and maybe specific to 77mm. Comparing this filter to my existing 77mm Haze UV-1 Glass Filter from Canon which I was attempting to replace, the bottom gap on the Cannon filter is twice that of the Tiffen. As these are relatively new filters that Tiffen has released, I could not find any more information on this on the web. Finally, I do want to say that the filter itself is first rate and the test shots I have taken with it (while not completely screwed on) prove this. Oh and by the way the Canon lens cap does stay on, just in case anyone is wondering.
