Product Highlights
  • Absorbs Ultraviolet Light
  • Reduces Bluish Cast of Daylight
  • General Protective Filter
  • ColorCore Technology

The Tiffen 49mm UV Haze 1 Filter is a general use, clear filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. This filter is especially useful when photographing at high altitudes or around bodies of water. No additional coloration or contrast is provided, allowing you to pair this filter with others.

The UV 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.

Absorbs most ultraviolet light and reduces bluish cast of daylight.

      I wanted to buy a filter for my 28mm wide angle lens, and looked around at different brands all at different price-points. I decided to try the Tiffen filter and am glad I did. I have taken shots with and without the filter to see if there is any loss in image quality, and while I am only a hobbyist -I cannot see a single one. I would recommend this product, in fact I think I am going to change out the stock UV filters on my other lens with the Tiffen 55mm.

      There is a very solid feel about this filter, much better than the Tiffen Haze-1. I have it fitted to my Sony 18-55mm E-mount lens and it fits and works flawlessly.

      There is however one big con, and it is probably just a one-off, but there are dozens of specks that look almost metallic embedded between the filter layers. They can't be removed. I have not noticed any ill effects caused by them being there, nothing shows up in the images but its bad nonetheless.

      I would not recommend this lens if they are all like this, but i doubt they are.

                  I just stick it on the front of my lens to keep from getting my lens all dinged up.

                  The only bad thing about it is that it doesn't screw in buttery smooth, but it doesn't really matter. It works.

                        UV protection is hard to gauge, but there's no denying the safety and security that comes with having a sturdy filter on your glass. I use mostly vintage lenses that'd be hard to replace if I dropped them - keeping a filter on for protection just means I have one less thing to worry about.

                                I wanted to buy a filter for my 28mm wide angle lens, and looked around at different brands all at different price-points. I decided to try the Tiffen filter and am glad I did. I have taken shots with and without the filter to see if there is any loss in image quality, and while I am only a hobbyist -I cannot see a single one. I would recommend this product, in fact I think I am going to change out the stock UV filters on my other lens with the Tiffen 55mm.

                                  The Tiffen Haze-1 filters are very nice. They thread easily, and the quality is excellent for the price. I have various sizes, one for each of my lenses.

                                    Never had to take it out from my glass. It is cheap, it works, what else can you ask for this price?
