Tiffen 77mm Skylight 1-A Filter

You Pay: $29.95
Product Highlights
  • Reduces Bluish Cast of Daylight
  • Provides Greater Color Accuracy
  • General Protective Filter
  • ColorCore Technology

The Tiffen 77mm 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.

          Solid buy and performs flawlessly, just the way it is supposed to! Comes in great packaging that can be used as durable storage, threads on perfectly, and makes for beautiful, warm, colorful shots without the washout created by UV! As always, another great product by Tiffen!

                Comments about Tiffen 77mm Skylight 1-A Filter:

                I bought this for use on my Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X 116 Pro DX Autofocus Lens for Nikon DX-Format DSLRs mainly for protection. So far, it's been a great addition. No vignetting at 11mm, so I'm happy. It does cut down a bit on the blueish hue, but I can't say I've noticed a dramatic difference.

                Despite the other comments saying the lens cap won't fit properly when using this filter, I have had no problems with the Tokina lens cap (it was a little less-than-stellar to begin with on the lens itself, and I can tell no difference attaching it to the filter). It stays put for me. Maybe it depends on the lens/lens cap?

                            Just had to buy another filter he he.
