Product Highlights
  • Helps to Absorb Ultraviolet Light
  • Reduces Bluish Cast of Daylight
  • General Protective Filter
  • ColorCore Technology

The Tiffen 52mm 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.

    I use the 52mm UV Protector Filter by Tiffen to protect a new Panasonic 45-200mm zoom lens for HD filming with a Panasonic AF-100. Recently, I've been filming fast-action outdoor sports like thoroughbred horse racing. To be honest, I find the filter responsive to most circumstances (sunny, cloudy, rainy, etc) I hardly even think about it. At first, it was a little tricky to find the thread to screw the filter on top of the lens, I thought I had the wrong size. Sure enough, it fit snug as a glove and remains there. It makes so much sense to protect an investment like a zoom lens with a cost-effective filter. I now have one on each of my lenses.

    I bought this as a lens protector for a 50mm 1.4D AF Nikon lens. It works fine UNLESS you have any strong forward lighting. It routinely adds reflective images if this is the case. Removing the filter eliminates these images so it is clearly the filter.

    I have a Quantaray 67 mm DMC-UV filter and it doesn't have this problem - so it shouldn't just be because it's inexpensive. Again, it's fine unless you're in the above conditions but it's a real pain when you notice it after the shot!

        High quality at a reasonable price! I bought two for protection of a pair of brand new Nikon lenses. This is the best insurance you can buy for the front element of any lens. Threaded inside and out for adding other filters or a lens hood.

          If you're looking for a quality filter at a great price look no further, i have a filter on every lens just to prevent any damage done to my lens and these are just perfect for that. Very easy to screw and unscrew off of the lens and good quality, these are a must.

                I had this filter on the end of my lens for protection and the other weak it took the force of a blow and saved my lens. They're clear, they're cheap, and they saved my lens.

                                    Fits great. Haven't had it long but it is what I was looking for with reasonable price.
