Tiffen 37TPK1 Overview

This kit consists of a: a UV Protection filter, an 812 Warming filter, a circular polarizer and 4-pocket filter pouch.

UV Protection Filters
Haze(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.

812 Filters
Tiffen's exclusive 812 Filter improves skin tones and is ideal for portraits taken on a cloudy day or outdoors in shade on a sunny day. It also absorbs blue cast often caused by electronic flash and adds warmth to pale washed-out flesh tones.

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. Filter factor is between 2.3 and 2.8 (approx. +1.3 stops).

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

This kit does the job

I'm not sufficiently sophisticated to use filters for maximum results. I bought this mainly for the protective UV filter for a new lens. I wish Tiffen put the filters in little plastic baggies before inserting them into the netting. The price is right and Tiffen produces what they say. And always buy from B&H.

Just what I was looking for to fit the filter threads of the clip-on cell-phone adapter. Tiffen quality speaks for itself. Recommended product. Pleased customer.

Inexpensive and excellent quality. The bonus is your pictures look great when you properly use the filters. B&H make ordering a breeze.

Not too great

Usually I write filter reviews saying its a filter because the vast majority of filters are more or less equivalent (at least within their price range). No huge plus going after brand x vs y as long as you get a good deal. However, in this case I feel obligated to point out that this filter kit is really quite substandard. Due to the poor packaging the filters come with slight scratches on the surface and dust. While a speck or two is to be expected even on a brand new filter, in this case the amount of dust is higher than reasonable due to the fact that the netting of the filter case lets dust through and the filters are shipped in the case without additional protection. So when you open the case, the first thing you will have to do is to clean the filters, and live with the scratches from the netting. The price is decent but you may want to consider buying the filters and case separately if price is not the overriding concern.
