Questions? Ask our experts:

The Tiffen 62mm Linear Polarizer Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.

A linear polarizer only differs from a circular polarizer in that it does not contain a quarter wave plane that enables use of auto focus and exposure features. Linear polarizers are best suited for use with manual cameras, such as view cameras, that are not dependent on internal mechanisms to determine focus or metering settings.

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

        first time buying one of these so it seems to do what I need it to. so nothing really to base this on other than it greatly reduces glare / reflections. great for the price!

          Comments about Tiffen 62mm Linear Polarizer Filter:

          What is this filter for?Color. I regard photography as a three stage process. The preparation, the actuation of the shutter and the post photographic editing. This filter cuts down on the amount of editing required in stage three by reducing glare and enhancing color.Why you shouldn't buy this filter:1. It is 62mm. If you do not have a lens that requires a 62mm filter then this would be a waste.2. You already have a billion lens filters.Why you should buy this filter:1. For those of you who do not know, plastic scratches easier than glass. Even if you do know this simple fact it is sometimes easy to forget while shopping for filters. It is not made from one solid piece of glass but layered glass to allow it flexability and protect it from expansion or contraction caused by heat or cold.2. It is a linear polarizer. You can go with a circular polarizer but some photographers claim that the manner in which color is enhanced will alter the quality of the color distribution of the photo. These photographers will hold a sheet of linear polarized glass in front of their camera while taking a photo. There are MANY problems with that. Dust will get on the filter causing unwanted diffusion of light, specular glare off of the backside of the sheet makes the existance of the of the sheet aparant, you have to stabilize your filter to avoid blur ... etc. With this filter you eliminate all of that. Simple linear polarized filter photos.3. As mentioned earlier, this filter enhances the color of the scenery to ensure that the color clearly appears in your photos. (As it should)4. Lens protection. I leave my filters on my lens while I am not using them. This keeps the surface of my lens clean an protects them in case the lens cap comes off. (which has been known to happen)5. It is only $. That is right. It fits on your favorite lens, does a better job than what you were going to do anyways and is still only $. It is a great deal. Why not own one more filter.Side story: It appeared as though USPS had LOST the package my filter was in. Obviously I was upset. I contacted bhphotovideo.com and told them what had happened and they shipped me another filter free of charge. I received the original package, LATE, from USPS and then contacted bhphotovideo. They told me to attempt to deny delivery of the second package from UPS and if that did not work (as in UPS left it on my doorstep) then KEEP IT.A great deal delivered by a stand up company.I don't think you can beat that.

                makes a big differance on skys, clouds, and greens in grass and leaves. the polorized glass spins independantly so you can turn it to vary the effect.

                  Comments about Tiffen 62mm Linear Polarizer Filter:

                  I use it on a sigma 18-200 lens on the nikon d5000. I am highly impressed by the quality of pictures I get even when the shooting into the sun or when there is a strong reflection off of water, etc.
                  Gives the protection of a uv filter with the added bonus of polarizing.
                  I leave it on for protection and the general picture quality is great.

                    It has a nice general range of uses. I seem to most often use it to correct reflections in glass/shiny stuff.
                    It is simple to use and affordable.
                    I don't like that it is hard to keep it in place once you turn the filter. I almost have to hold it in place to keep it where I want it.
