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

The Tiffen 55mm 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.

      Amazing filter for the price, not the best UV filter out there, but for my skill level i couldnt notice any difference from images between with filter and without filter.
      I use it mainly for protection, since i dont go to high altitudes to properly test this.
      Overall, nice price for such quality, because cheap filters can ruin your images.

      The classic protection filter - cuts the haze, protects the lens. I put this kind of filter on every lens I own. The Tiffen filters seem a little wobbly when I go to clean them, but they are just fine on the lens. Good buy.

        These really do protect the camera lens. You don't want a camera without one. IF anything happens by accident, trashing one of these is much better than trashing the camera lens.

            I use UV filters to protect my expensive lens purchases. They are inexpensive, and on more than one occasion they have stopped serious damages to one or more of my pricey lenses. I found no flaws with these inexpensive UV filters.

                            I bought this filter primarily to protect my lens. It came at a great price for such a simple purpose. I live near the beach though, and found that my photographs have a wider range of color when shooting in such a blue setting. I would recommend this filter. Note - I am a photo hobbyist, not professional.

                                This UV Protector Filter is amazing. It isn't any cheap plastic filter. This is made out of a durable metal ring with quality glass.

                                  I wanted an inexpensive lens for basic protection. This UV filter does the job. It threads easily. Inexpensive filters often have threading problems and don't last. The Tiffen filter was eay to place and sits tight.

                                    I've had no issues with this filter. It was a good price and did what I needed it to do.
