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

The Tiffen 82mm 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 filter is well constructed and allows for the addition of a circ. polarizing filter because it is threaded to accept other filters easily, unlike some other filters that don't. I use this on my Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L II lens. It is the least expensive quality 82mm filter available.

    I bought this hoping that it would do what it looks like it does in the picture, filter out the blue cast in distant views but there is not a noticeable enough difference without it. It does protect the lens while shooting just by adding another layer of glass over it.

            Had some cheap ones from China and Korea before and cracked easily. Tiffen's weight is 3 times the weight of my previous ones and feels much sturdier. Can't believe it is so affordable.

                        This filter is terrible. Obviously at 15 dollars you are skipping on quality, but if you shoot with any bright lights, street lights, sun, etc, expect this filter to add serious lens flare in a bad way. It's a neon green. Had it on my 24-70 2.8 II. Took it off and no flare.

                                  I purchased this to protect a lens I just bought. It works great and does the job well.
