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.

      I decided to leave the filter on as a permanent protection on the lens. The filter feels nice and solid, a durable quality. As with my other experiences ordering from B&H, the item shipped quickly. Great site, will definitely purchase from here again.

              On the cheaper side of filters, but it does the job in protecting the lens from dust and damage. I'd recommend it.

                    I use this filter as a lens protector for my Canon 50mm 1.4. It is fairly scratch resistant. I've never had a problem with it in terms of scratches, but I also keep my lenses in optimum conditions. The only downside is that when shooting at night into lights, you get a mirrored glare from any lights in your shot. Sometimes the same effect will occur in the daylight if the sun is shining into the lens at certain angles. In those instances, I simply unscrew it and replace it before putting it away.

                      I bought this lens filter just to protect the surface of my lens. I just want it to be clear and not interfere with the operation of the lens. It works as expected.
                      It is clear so it does not interfere with my picture taking. It also provides another surface in front of the lens to absorb any abuse. I don't know if it helps to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight and don't care if it does.

                            I have this filter on a telephoto lens of mine and I am glad I did. I had my camera bag hanging on the corner edge of a door. I didn't think it would fall but the bad did fall. I opened the bag and thought the lens broke but as I cleaned the glass off of the lens, I found that it was the filter that broke and not the lens. The lens was as good as new. I am so grateful for the filter so I bought a new one and it's on my lens right now. :]

                              Got this with a kit for my camera. I would have never thought to get this otherwise but it's nice to know I have extra protection on my camera. I was a little thrown off when I put it on though because I believe I had to put it on backwards (in reference to how it is on the camera on the packaging)? Whatevs. As long as it continues to work effectively, I'm happy!

                              Tiffen is the name I look for

                                Tiffen filters protect my valuable lenses. The screw threads on Tiffen filters are well done and always fit good.
