General Brand 77UVP overview

  • 1Description

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.
Clear filter provides no additional coloration or contrast, allowing you to pair this filter with others.

    General Brand 77UVP reviews

    77mm UV Protector Filter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 577.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from More trouble than good... 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.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from touches lens glass! UV filters are a must for any professional photographer. I have one on all of my lenses, with the added bonus of protecting the lens glass. This filter unfortunately touches the lens glass on my canon 24-105mm L. so be careful what you buy it for... it's fine on the 17-40mm

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always protect your lenses with filters When I got into photography, one of the first things I was told was to always have a protective filter on the end of my lenses to protect the glass. It's much easier to replace a filter than a very expensive lens. Years later, I found myself changing lenses on a rocky surface, and, for the first time, I dropped a lens. It was my most expensive lens... a nice wide angle with a bubbled out glass.. The Tiffen filter on the end shattered into a hundred pieces, but it saved the lens. It works fine, and the glass below didn't get harmed at all. These protective filters are a MUST and will help save you in a split second.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price point filter.... My gear is used 100% in Kenya in locations varying from urban slums to desolate northern deserts. The Tiffen UV filter has a very low cool factor, but it has a very effective and practical factor to it. By that I mean that though it does not say BW or Nikon, it is still an excellent filter at a fraction of the price. It is used on my Nikon 20-35 f2.8 and if it gets scratched, or even broken, I will not cry, but simply replace it. Pay the big bucks for a big named filter if you really think it will improve your photography, but I've used Tiffen for years and have no complaints. By the way, I've also used some of the other brands and have never seen a difference.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 77mm UV filter by Tiffen I bought a couple because of the low price just to see how they performed. I primarily wanted a protective filter in front of my expensive lens elements and they do the job just fine. These are not super thin filter rings so they may not work on really wide lenses but they do feature front filter threads if you want to stack them with other filters (although I'd just remove it and put on a polarizer for instance). There are other versions of this filter that cut more UV rays but this will keep the grit off your lens very well. These are cheap enough to spray with hairspray, or other modifications to use for special effects. I have ordered two more 77's and one 58mm already.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flares excessively I just received the AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm ED VR lense from B&H. This filter was included in the filter twin pack at no extra charge. At first I thought that was so nice of B&H to include this bonus with my purchase. But as it turns out, including this filter pack was a mistake on B&H's part as it just led to a waste of my time. The UV Protection filter flares excessively and should be recycled rather than used in any optical system. I just replaced this inferior filter with the Nikon 77mm Clear NC Glass Filter, which functions beautifully. I doubt I will ever try the Tiffen Circular Polarizing filter as Tiffen has such a black eye from producing the junky UV Proetction filter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job I use this to protect my glass on the Tokina 11-16mm. Its serves its purpose.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for I bought this in a pinch hoping I could get away with a cheep UV filter. After using it I quickly noticed how horribly this filter enhanced flares that normally wouldn't have been an issue. I literally have to take this filter off if there are any light sources, not only in image, but also any light sources in a 120 degree angle of the lens. It does a fine job protecting the front element and does not seem to effect the image at all but in my opinion I would just spend the extra $50-$75 and buy the better filter.
