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:

      The rule of thumb is that you don't put cheap filters on expensive lenses. I want the front surface of my lens to be protected but I don't want to lessen the quality of an image. The Tiffin UV "protector" filter was my choice and I'm happy with it.

          Good product, not a top of the line optically correct filter, but for everyday use there and what most of shoot there is no need to spend a lot of money on a optically perfect high dollar filter. Spend the extra money on your glass, you will never know you have a inexpensive filter protecting your lens, of course it will be a little sharper, but 99% of the people out there are either looking at an image on a web page on a device, doubt they can tell.

              Threads are good. No problems. Good quality at a very good price. Buy a filter in comparison to the quality of your lens. I'm not putting a $ UV filter on a $ lens. If you are an amateur enthusiast, this one works great. If you are a pro, buy a Zeiss or top line B+W.

                  The filter is not clear enough. When you look through the filter with your eyes, you can clearly see that it decreases the view/image quality. But this is a very cheap filter and you get what you pay for. I knew it was not gonna be a perfect filter but I just need it to protect my lens in some specific scenarios like when shooting videos with my camera mounted to the outside of the car.

                          Only elaborate testing is likely to show any differences ( if any )between this and filters costing many times more. I think of UV's as front element protection and I take them off where appropriate for a shot that might require the very highest quality or freedom from flare. This one does the job. It's predecesor was broken in a short fall, but its presence kept the lens filter threads intact.

                          Mounted on my Nikon AF-S Zoom Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8D ED-IF AF Lens, this filter does an exquisite job of filtering out the UV rays. Absolute pristine pictures, thanks to the this filter, and is also protecting my lenses from dust as well. I'm very happy!
