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

The Tiffen 58mm 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 bought this filter to protect my lens and to reduce the glare off the ocean when shooting surf pictures. I found that when its on the lens in my housing it confuses the camera because of the extra piece of glass that the lens has to focus through. So I can't use it in the water but when ever I'm taking photos/video from the beach I use it to block the glare and protect the lens from sand. Its a good filter for the price. Prefect for protection.

    I bought this to protect the lens. I take it off for most of the stuff I do, but leave it on when the lens is in my bag or when using it outdoors.

    This is a cheap UV filter that performs the function, however the glass was so loose when got it I thought there was broken glass in the package. On inspection I found that the retaining ring was just loose, and rather than hassel with returns I just fixed it and moved on.

    I'm not unhappy with it but not particularly impressed either - but hey - it's just a UV filter. If I could rate it at 2.5 stars I would.

    Yes I would reccomend it to a friend with the above disclaimer. And I would buy one again for the same purpose.

      This filter is solidly built, is easy to thread onto a lens and is clear enough to constantly remain on the lens. Also, it is really easy to clean.

        A must to protect any lens. Many different models on the market but at this price, can't go wrong. I often "bump" the edge of my camera on something and end up denting the ring. Doesn't hurt to replace it, the lens on the other hand!

                Filters like this are necessary to keep your lenses protected and clean. My high school journalists tend to get fingerprints on the lenses, so these filters are life-savers.
