The Tiffen 72mm Photo Twin Pack consists of a UV Protection filter and Circular Polarizer.

UV Protection Filters
UVHaze (UV) filters are wise initial investments. They help protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs. If desired they can be left on the lens at all times for protection. Haze filters provide additional benefits of correction for Ultraviolet (UV) light which can register on film and videotape as a bluish cast and can obscure distant details. Ultraviolet filters allow you to correct for the UV effect to varying degrees. Haze-1 filters absorb approximately 71 percent of UV.

Circular Polarizers
Light rays which are reflected become polarized. Polarizing filters are used to select which light rays enter your camera lens. They can remove unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water or glass and also saturate colors providing better contrast. The effect can be seen through the viewfinder and changed by rotating the filter. The filter factor varies according to how the filter is rotated and its orientation to the sun.

Note! Circular polarizers are specifically designed for use with auto-focus SLR cameras (They will also work on manual systems and video cameras without problems)

      I used the Photo Twin Pack by Tiffen on my Canon XH-A1. I needed a UV protector filter to keep on all the time, and a polarizing filter to bring out the color in my videos. They both work great. The only downside is the circular polarizing filter feels kind of cheap; the twisting mechanism is oddly loose, but it was cheap enough to where that doesn't even matter.

      Buy in a heartbeat.

      Decent quality UV & Polarizer filters, at a very economic price. The disappointing part is that this twin filter pack only comes with one soft storage pouch. The UV filter is simply packed in a plastic ziplock bag inside the box [...]. Would rather have a 2-filter soft pouch or individual plastic cases to store these in. Probably not a big deal those who leave the UV filter on the lens all the time.

      Comments about Tiffen 72mm Photo Twin Pack (UV Protection and Circular Polarizing Filter):

      I bought this for a small Panasonic camera and a Canon lens. It works great on both. The filters can be hard to seperate if you use the UV and CPL at one time. Just be careful as always when working with your lens.

        Comments about Tiffen 72mm Photo Twin Pack (UV Protection and Circular Polarizing Filter):

        Two of the most useful filters that any photographer should have, a UV for every lens and a Circular Polarizing Filter for every size. The UV filter is obvious, protecting the front element of your much more expensive lens, but the Circular Polarizer is the go to filter for many photography situations. Buying both at the same time, as with this Twin Pack, is convient when you purchase a lens that has a filter size that you don't already own.

              Very good UV Protection, but you are trying to use it with ExpoDisc, you will have to hold it on the filter. The outside lip of the filter is too narriow to catch the small ball points of the ExpoDisc,

                    Being a good brand, I thought the UV and the CPL would be good product, even though it was price reasonably cheap. But I found otherwise. If you use the UV, the picture is comparatively blurry. The CPL doesn't gv any blurry effect, but rotating the polarizer has minimal/NO effect on the scene.

                                  Just what I needed to get around the aggravation of "white balance" that can change quickly when working outside in the real world. With little and I mean little time my eye adjusted to seeing the light and quicker than I can take my camera away form my camera I have what I need. I think if a photographer wants to work quickly this is the best tool you can buy. MarthaLyn

                                            I previously purchased a circular polarizer from B&H and so when I lost it I naturally went back to B&H for another polarizer. Excellent [...]products.

                                                Living in the semi-desert southwest, we have very aggressive sunlight for most of each day. To have these filters on my lens allows me to soften my images and not feel as if I have to always fight the strong light bouncing off of objects since I do not always shoot at the correct time of day.
                                                The filters are easy to place on my lens and I am so glad to have both of them in my collection.

                                                  These are great for the price and are standard AKS for any field camera kit. I never have a lens without them. Oh, and you can't mess with Tiffen!

                                                  The UV filter stays on (as with most users) and the polarizer pretty much works as advertised.

                                                  The pack comes with a handy pouch for the polarizer. However, its not a hard case as with regular Tiffen filters so I have to be a little careful with it.
