Product Highlights
  • Reduces Bluish Cast of Daylight
  • Provides Greater Color Accuracy
  • General Protective Filter
  • ColorCore Technology

The Tiffen 72mm 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.

          It's a very good filter. I'm pleased with its result, but the warming effect is not that apparent.

            Mostly to protect newly purchase 18-270 zoom lens. Warming effect = quite subtle.

                    I bought this filter simply to protect my Tamron zoom lens. I'm happy with the metal construction, and the threads fit very well. Good filter for the money.

                      I use these Tiffen Skylight Filters on all 4 of my lenses. They do a very good job of taking care of haze. This one (the 72mm) is on my 500mm mirror lens and I am very satisfied with its performance. Often there is a lot of atmosphere between me and my subject with this lens and this filter reduces haze well. Also, I can attach my lenscap with this filter on.
