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

The Tiffen 72mm 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.

      The filter has a good quality feel; not as good as B+W filters but there is a substantial price difference between the two. Personally, I do not believe in using filters solely for protection except in certain environments but, that being said, I have not yet noticed any image degradation due to using this filter. For what it's worth, digital cameras already have a UV filter over the sensor so the only time this filter will have any noticeable effect will be on film. I don't believe this filter has any coating so flare could be a concern but I haven't yet been a situation where it has presented itself; regardless, it would probably be best to use a lens hood with it (and even without it for that matter.) If I had one complaint, and this may be considered picky, the case that the filter comes in is pretty poor. It is much larger than necessary, has virtually no cushioning and allows the filter to bounce around while inside it. Again this is another area where B+W clearly has the edge but also, once again, I suppose you are paying for that consideration. All in all a nice filter and a very good value.

      Honestly I do not have a good enough eye yet as a photographer to see the difference btwn using the lens and not using it. However I do know that the UV filter is protecting my lens when I am out doors which is half the reason I got this filter.

                  Seems to do the job on my Rokinon 85mm, which is at present the only 72mm lens I own. I don't anticipate using this outdoors much, so a filter with multi coating wasn't as important to me as some of my other lenses. Really just about protection, and it's doing that fine. No problems mounting it, and the Rokinon lens cap seems to stay on this, (barely). But I think the tenuousness of that is due to Rokinon, not the Tiffen.

                      Bought this to fit on the Rokinon 85mm cine lens, and it works fine. I could actually see the yellowish tint on this one but for a longer lens I'm happy with that. Mostly this just protects the lens in case I drop it and so far I haven't done that but I'm sure it will come through.

                                      Very well made and high quality filter. Using it on my Nikon D200, I keep it on the lens at all times.

                                        I tested images with this UV filter on/off. I found very little degradation of the image with the filter on. Does what a UV filter should do and does it well.

                                              I don't know what to write about a UV/Haze filter. It's good. It's sturdy. It does the job. I've used Tiffen all my life and they're quality at an affordable price. Plus they're one of the few things still made in the USA.

                                                The filter has a good quality feel; not as good as B+W filters but there is a substantial price difference between the two. Personally, I do not believe in using filters solely for protection except in certain environments but, that being said, I have not yet noticed any image degradation due to using this filter. For what it's worth, digital cameras already have a UV filter over the sensor so the only time this filter will have any noticeable effect will be on film. I don't believe this filter has any coating so flare could be a concern but I haven't yet been a situation where it has presented itself; regardless, it would probably be best to use a lens hood with it (and even without it for that matter.) If I had one complaint, and this may be considered picky, the case that the filter comes in is pretty poor. It is much larger than necessary, has virtually no cushioning and allows the filter to bounce around while inside it. Again this is another area where B+W clearly has the edge but also, once again, I suppose you are paying for that consideration. All in all a nice filter and a very good value.

                                                  Honestly I do not have a good enough eye yet as a photographer to see the difference btwn using the lens and not using it. However I do know that the UV filter is protecting my lens when I am out doors which is half the reason I got this filter.
