Tiffen 58mm Skylight 1-A Filter

You Pay: $7.90
Product Highlights
  • Reduces Bluish Cast of Daylight
  • Provides Greater Color Accuracy
  • General Protective Filter
  • ColorCore Technology

The Tiffen 58mm Skylight 1-A Filter is a general use filter with a slight pink tint to help improve overall color accuracy and clarity. The light pink coloration helps to reduce the overall bluish cast of daylight and is especially effective when photographing landscapes and in shade.

The Sky 1A 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.

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 1/10,000th of an inch, then mounting to precision metal rings.

Helps to improve general color accuracy and clarity when photographing outdoors in daylight and shade.

      Buy a lens, buy a filter. I used Skylight filters in the 35mm days so I figured I'd try one with the DSLR. Seems to have the same effect as a UV. The filter was a Tiffen and the price was low, but the filter glass is loose in the ring mount. Have the same issue with a Canon filter. So far no bad effects on either one. I got what I paid for.

          I bought this to add some warmth to my portraits. As a beginner adding a $ filter is reasonable... if I like it maybe I'll buy a better quality one. If not I didn't waste a lot of money on it.

              The filters arriveed quickly from B&H. No problems, they screwed right on with no problems, the lens in filter is tight. Bought to protect camera lens & little filter of the blue hue in photos & are preforming as expected.

                  I bought this as a protective filter for one of my Zeiss primes. The color shift is very transparent which is what I wanted. solid glass construction and the quality I expect from Tiffen, all around a good buy.

                      Tiffen filters are great. Probably the best filter value out there. I do wish they would use satin black paint instead of flat so it would look more like a match to the camera, but that is really a non-issue.
