Tiffen 43mm UV Protector Filter

You Pay: $7.99
Product Highlights
  • Helps to Absorb Ultraviolet Light
  • Reduces Bluish Cast of Daylight
  • General Protective Filter
  • ColorCore Technology

The Tiffen 43mm UV Protector 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 some ultraviolet light and reduces bluish cast of daylight.

      Does a very nice job. Sharpens the quality of the video quite well. This came in the kit I bought with the panasonic 70 camcorder. I hadn't thought much about a filter before, this definitely makes a difference in the video.

      Didn't plan on purchasing it, just added it since it was cheap. The only good thing i have to say about it is that it protects the front element of my 22mm f/2 lens, other than that, this is an awful filter, it ruined all my night shots and other shots, which were taken with it, the flare is unacceptable.
      I always buy the B+W expensive ones and should have done so also for this lens.

            Great for protecting the lens. Easy to clean. Not very exciting, but it should be used by anyone that doesn't want to have to replace a scratched lens.

                  The price is un-beatable too.

                        This lens filter screws right on and provides protection for the lens of my video camera. For only a few bucks I don't see any reason to not have one of these on your camera.

                            Personally, I find the construction flimsy and really not up to par. There's quite a bit of flare when shooting at night and with stray lights. I've gotten the B+W filters instead.

                                  Went on my Canon HF-M41 with no problems. Now I don't have to worry about damaging the camera's automatic shutter if something bad happens.

                                    I use this on my vintage 38mm Olympus Pen-F lens on my Sony Nex-5n. It proves very satisfactory in protecting my lens, though the photos exhibit some flare, which I cannot attribute to any specific factor. It looks big on that tiny lens, but it's actually quite small in dimensions. All in all- good value for money!

                                          The name says it all, but it does not come with a cap. I needed a cap to cover the filter so it does not get all scratched up too whilst not in use.

                                            Bought this as an accesory for a camcorder I purchased as a gift for my son. I use UV filters on my own camera to protect the lens and reduce the effects of haze.
