Tiffen 77mm UV Protector Filter

You Pay: $14.75
Product Highlights
  • Helps to Absorb Ultraviolet Light
  • Reduces Bluish Cast of Daylight
  • General Protective Filter
  • ColorCore Technology

The Tiffen 77mm 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.

    This is the very first accessory you should buy
    (actually for ANY lens)! You've just spent good money on a finely engineered chunk of glass---protect it! No matter how careful a photographer you are,no matter how often you use a lens cap, this filter is STILL about the wisest investment you can make. Tiffen makes a consistently great product, in a variety of sizes, which attaches smoothly & evenly----no distortion, ever.
    Highly recommended.

    I found that this filter actually slowed my lens down. Camera metering selected faster shutter speeds across all apertures when the filter wasn't used and I never had this problem with other lens using UV protectors from different brands. The filter also induced flaring when my lens was wide open and a bright light source was in the shot. I repeated the shot without the filter and the issue cleared up.

    So yes, this filter is cheap and if you're spending good money on good glass, this filter will only diminish your investment.

      Comments about Tiffen 77mm UV Protector Filter:

      Used on Canon 24-70 mk1. A fairly standard filter, Tiffens have a good price point. As a semi-pro shooter, I remove the filter for shoots I know will provide needed or ideal images. But that gets to why I like this filter more than others; it only has a few threads to it. Of the dozen filters I own/have owned, this is the first one that I feel I can thread all the way on, back it off a tiny bit (so I can remove it easily), and it still feels 100% secure. No complaints.

      Excellent Protective Filter

      By Ireflyfish

      from Germantown, Maryland

      Comments about Tiffen 77mm UV Protector Filter:

      This filter is very well made. I use it to protect my front element from getting scratched. I have purchased B + W filters in the past, and this filter is almost the same quality, design, and weight. No problems with flare at all using my 24-105. I would definitely recommend this filter.

      Pass on this filter!

      By Chris W

      from Brooklyn, NY

      Comments about Tiffen 77mm UV Protector Filter:

      Anytime you shoot towards the sun or into bright lights, you'll get the worst flares and distortion you've ever seen.

      They're fine/unnoticeable for all other shooting situations so far, but if you want an all around filter, pay a bit more for some quality.

            Comments about Tiffen 77mm UV Protector Filter:

            I ordered this Tiffen UV filter to dust seal my Canon 17-40 F/4 L Lens. Arizona has some of the most distuctive dust on Earth and plenty of it, so I thought I'd get ahead of the game before the dust becomes expensive. I'm using this on a crop sensor so I can't say if it would be a problem on a full frame due to filter thicknes (vignetting corners) at the wide end. So far I haven't noticed any adverse effects but then again I haven't shot a lot of photos with it yet in different light situations.

              I very quickly stopped using this protector as it caused massive amounts of very unnatural-looking glare (as in big spots, not just pretty rainbows-like glare).

                        These filter work as advertised, and they are nice and clear. You get what you pay for, and these are a bit on the delicate side, but at this cost, you can afford to buy a few as spares.
