Product Highlights
  • Helps to Eliminate Reflections and Glare
  • Reduces Haze and Blue Cast in Landscapes
  • Greater Color and Tonal Saturation
  • ColorCore Technology

The Tiffen 67mm 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.

      I picked this polarizer up in anticipation of an outdoor wedding shoot with wonderful puffy clouds in the forecast. I have an old Promaster Spectrum 7 52mm linear polarizer of unknown age that I used to great effect in landscape shots out west years ago with a 35mm SLR. I wanted to be able to create the same effect on some of the wedding shots, so I needed a 67mm polarizer.

      Both filters work as three-stop neutral density filters for unpolarized light, but there is a huge difference in the amount of polarized light they block. With the Tiffen, I can make the sky kinda-slightly darker blue, or take away some of the reflected light off of certain surfaces. However, with the old 52mm filter, I can effect massive changes in the look of the sky, choosing anything from light, almost-gray color to a rich royal blue that makes the clouds pop. In informal testing looking at an LCD TV, rotating the Tiffen to block the light results in a muted bluish-green cast, maybe three additional stops, whereas the old Promaster can make the screen look completely black.

      The image quality and construction of the Tiffen is fine, but if you're expecting something stronger, this isn't the filter for you.

          Comments about Tiffen 67mm Linear Polarizer Filter:

          I bought this linear polarizer with the expressed purpose of stacking it in front of a Tiffen circular polarizer to create an adjustable neutral density filter. This technique works with a set of Optex polarizers that I own, but not with these Tiffens. I don't get it. Anyways it's not worth the shipping to send it back so I will use it as a normal polarizer. I'm sure it works fine for that. :-)

            Comments about Tiffen 67mm Linear Polarizer Filter:

            I use this polarizer for HDSLR filmmaking and photography with a canon 60D kit 18-135mm lens. While the polarizer functions as advertised, I've found that it's not what I was expecting. It does an excellent job of reducing glare and haze, however sometimes when light sources enter the filter the refract a few times between the filter and front lens element causing some light ghosting distortion. The build quality is spectacular. Made with real metal and glass, and it is easy to install/remove and rotate (without removing) For the money I spent I would say its worth the buy.

                                Very good for the price you pay, 1/3rd of the price of a circular polarizer.
                                Linear polarizer works very well with my Nikon D300 on the Nikon 75-300 zoom lens: autofocus is fast and accurate, I can't see any difference in focusing with or without the filter.

                                  As a filter to protect my 18-135 Nikor AF lens this product works perfectly. Further it polarizes as it should reducing glare when shooting water surfaces and glass windows or into the Sun.

                                  Early morning shoots to prevent glare and enhance colors.
