The Tiffen 62mm 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 62mm UV Protector Filter by Tiffen to protect a new Panasonic 14-140mm 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 (sun, clouds, rain, etc) I hardly even think about it. Fits 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.

    This filter produced very odd and ugly bokeh artifacts in light areas with my Nikon D90 and a Tamron A005 70-300mm zoom at long focal lengths. They appear as parallel lines or corduroy. I found a couple of similar reports--with pics--online for other inexpensive UV filters in combination with a zoom (Nikon 70-300mm VR) or telephoto lens.

      Comments about Tiffen 62mm UV Protector Filter:

      There is the debate of "Do digital cameras need UV filters" and frankly I don't care. I keep this screwed into the front of a Panasonic FZ1000 at all times. I'd rather scratch this than my lens.

      62mm back threads screw into the lens, and has 62mm threads on the front so you can screw other filters into this if needed. I often use a variable ND filter screwed into the front of this when shooting outdoor footage with no issues.

      My only complaint is the lens cap comes off easier from this than it does the lens itself. Most likely an issue with the lens cap not the filter.

                      In the midst of tripping over an unseen tree branch, my camera swung in front of me and broke my fall. Although the lens hood broke as well as already in place Tiffen filter, it well protected my lens from any damage. Also, American made.

                                        So far I've only used the product a couple times, but from what I've seen it does what I would expect out of a clear UV Protector. It attaches easily and securely on my Nikkon 70-200 lens. It didn't seem to distort the image or cause glare at all, inside or out, although I did use it on a cloudy day. Overall, I'd recommend it for anyone looking for a decent priced protection option.
