Tiffen 58mm 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

    Polarizing filter is extremely useful in bright sunlight. It removes glare and reduces amount of light entering the lens. Great for landscapes, panoramas and shooting still objects in general. It significantly decreases shutter speed, so be aware. I give it only 4 stars because I know that this filter is not the best, but it is great for non-professionals like me

              Comments about Tiffen 58mm Circular Polarizing Filter:

              I've used Tiffen filters in the past and have had such good luck with them that I wouldn't use any others when it came time to outfit my new lens. I really use the polarizing filters a lot outdoors to bring out the blue sky and make others look more natural. The only thing I can find that might be a problem is when the polarizing filter is screwed on the skylight filter. Sometimes it's hard to separate them when it comes time to remove the polarizing filter. otherwise it works great.

                    This is my 5th Tiffen filter, and 2nd polarizer.This filter will do a very good job darking the color of the skyand foliage. To control glare and to manage reflections. The Tiffen filter is very well made, I have some from 25 years ago. They are light yet strong. I would recommend this filter.

                                This filer is amazing. Its best on bright sunny days, it reduces a good amount of glair and some haze for landscape shots. I'd recommend this polarizing filter.

                                the only down side was it's mount. the ridges are very fine and hard to grip to twist off on some of my lenses. It almost got stuck on my one of my lens when I was trying to take it off. However, I'd recommend using a step up/down ring between this filter and the lens, it makes mounting on and off much easier.

                                Overall it's a solid lens and it does its job!

                                      The quality of this filter is about what I expected for the price. If you wonder what the differences are between this and a more expensive filter it is all in the feel. In comparison to the two B&W filters I own, the Tiffen just feels...well, cheap. It lacks the feel of a precision machined product. The ring turns a bit too easily and that may lead to unwanted results if you bump it. As far as polarization and clarity it does a very good job, and that's really the bottom line.

                                      I echo the comments of other users regarding the threads. The filter is very hard to thread on to my lenses. It took several tries to get it on straight.

                                      All in all, polarization is good, but the function and fit leave something to be desired.

                                        I take a lot of pictures of shop windows. A circular polarizing filter is essential for maximizing or minimizing reflections, depending on the effect I want to achieve. This one does the job beautifully.

                                                Polarizing filters are great for reducing glare and increasing the contrast of clouds, etc. I used it on a whale watching trip to do both and it worked as expected.
