"Worth It...its good...Ok had got a Bower kit on @ pfft and it stunk so tried a Tiffen UV and it works great no double vision or blurryness so now I just need to save up and get the Tiffen Ultra CPL on BHphotovideo and it will be cool I am using it on a Fujifilm finepix HS20 and I love the fact it's made in the USA...I liked it a lot because I live in Mexico City, which has a lot of dust in the air, and with this protector filter, I can clean my lens very well."See more

"So good....Not bad....Use the filter for protection against my lens when I am hiking so I don't have to take my lens cap on and off every time I want to take a shot....Works excellent on my canon 17-40mm f/4L... I though I might need a thin filter but this one is not visible at all in my wide angle shots."See more

"Best UV...Love it...It is housed in a super thin ring so vignetting is a non-issue, it has no noticeable effect on exposure / f-stop, and interestingly the first time I mounted it on the camera I accidentally dropped it on a hard case and not a speck of dirt or dust, leave alone a scratch !!...My lenses aren't insured and I am not a pro, so I can ill afford to have the front element unprotected--and I dont want a filter to interfere with my image--this is perfect for the purpose."See more

"Great !...Good Buy...I use B+W filters on all my lenses, I am a canon user and have all L-series lenses I wouldn't put another filter on the front of my glass other than B+W...There has been long and heated debates of filter v. non-filter, but I chose to go with a filter because I shoot a lot outdoors at the beach where it can be pretty windy and at sporting events sitting on the sidelines where you can easily get run over with all the action."See more

"I like it...WORK WELL...I put a filter on my 85mm 1.4 Sony for protection and keeping the dust off the large front element but when I shoot portraits I remove it....I see a few people who don't attach filters to their fixed focal length lenses but I have the tendency to do so simply for the extra protection especially living in New York."See more

"Good buy...Love it....I've honestly only used the filter one day, but I took a lot of pictures with the filter on and off, and looking at them on my computer, I can't really tell a difference....I am very happy with this filter for two reasons... one I love having the added insurance this gives on my lens which is way more money than the $ bucks spent on this and two it just does what it says, Filters out the UV's and if you don't know why that is good I recommend you read up on it but it really just makes the colors you want come through."See more

"Does the Job...Great Filter...I especially like that the two lenses have the same diameter and so I didn't have to buy two different filters, though the filter was inexpensive enough that if I were to find myself frequently switching lenses in the course of a shoot I might find it worthwhile to order another filter so that each lens will have its own....Hoya makes high quality filters at a reasonable price."See more

"THE BEST...no flares...It is a very thin filter which is great if you have a wide angle lens with the 67mm filter thread, or want to stack another filter on top of it....I usually protect my lenses with a filter when in dusty or wet places, and I like the thin, precise brass mount and the thinner than usual glass."See more

Simply mount the filter on your lens, set it to "Min" density then frame and focus. Care must be taken with focusing at heavier densities to make sure focus is accurate. However, if it isn't, switch to manual focus and rotate to the desired degree of filtration.
For example, if your standard exposure without the filter is 1/500 @ f/8 and you then set the filter to "Min", you change the shutter speed to 1/125 at the same aperture - thereby losing 2-stops of speed while gaining a hint of "blur" in the image. If that's not enough filtration, continue rotating the filter until you reach the shutter speed you desire. Using the above example, you can even get down to 1/8 second @ f/8 (8 stops). It should be noted that the calibration marks on the filter ring are to be used only for reference and should not be regarded as accurate settings for specific densities.
A Neutral Density filter is used to create some unusual special effects such as capturing the "blur" of the rippling water of a waterfall or the swirling effect of city traffic. Since it allows the use of slower shutter speeds in bright light, it becomes possible to create these special effects that would normally not be possible to capture without the filter. And, since it can also help to control your depth of field, it permits you to shoot at wider apertures. Ultimately, its value is in helping to prevent bright, overly washed out images shot in bright light.
The ColorCore process allows Tiffen to control the color and density of their filters, and the characteristics of special effects filters with much greater accuracy than typical dyed-in-the-mass filters, which usually exhibit color and density variations. In this way, Tiffen can better control the various densities of their filters and thereby create more exact degrees of filtration.
"OH WOW...love it...By using this product with my Rokinon DS line of lens I got to say the filter work great l, just don't close it to the maximum or you will get a little be of vignette, the The color chiefs as minimum, lastly I like the fact that I don't have to be changing filter I mount this variable version and just have to use it like if is my aperture ring....As a photographer, it's very helpful in allowing action blur in bright environments, it's also great because I can use a larger aperture when I am shooting in a bright environment in which I have little control of how bright the surroundings are."See more

If you're out walking on a lovely day - in the mountains or at the beach - and you want to get a fabulous shot of a cloud-filled sky or make the water seem more saturated, then a polarizer is the way to go. This filter is the best way to make the clouds stand out, increase or decrease the saturation of the ocean or increase or decrease the reflection off the water. You can also use this filter when shooting into glass or windows since it will, again, either increase or decrease reflections.
If you're shooting black and white and want to simulate a threatening storm, try throwing on a #25 Red filter. The vista will take on the appearance of an imminent, ominous storm.
Along with a UV or Skylight Filter, a polarizing filter should be a part of everyone's gear bag. It can turn a run-of-the-mill image into a stunning, creative photo by increasing color saturation.
"It's OK...It work...I like it, as far a people saying once the filter is on its tough to turn off, I think there might be some over tightening issues as I have not experienced any such problems yet....i've been shooting for years, and until I photographed a city through tinted car windows, I didn't realize how useful a filter like this could be!"See more
