Tiffen 77mm Circular Polarizer Filters - 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.

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.

This filter uses a Wide Angle (Low Profile) mount. In order to help eliminate vignetting (darkening of the corners), it does not have a front thread.

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

This filter eliminates ultraviolet rays from outdoor shots as well as polarizing the light to remove reflections, and increase color saturation, without affecting the overall color balance
Can dramatically enhance a blue sky and make the clouds more prominent
Used best at right angle to the sun
Effective with cameras that use beam splitters in the path of the TTL light meter and with AF cameras

    Tiffen 77WIDCP reviews

    77mm Circular Polarizing Wide Angle (Low Profile Design) Filter is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must for wide angle lenses I take a lot of tropical shots that include ocean and sky and using the polarizing filter makes a tremendous difference in the quality of the images I take. The low profile of this filter makes it ideal for wide angle lenses while also being perfect for any lens with this diameter lens. There is a trade-off with the low profile filter in that it is not possible to put the lens cap onto the filter, which requires installing and removing the filter each time it is used. This can be time consuming but I'd rather do that than risk damaging the filter by leaving it on with no cap. It can be stacked as long as it is the top filter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lens cap does not fit anymore Great filter, I own a Sigma 10-20mm ultra wide angle where this filter works just great. The only thing I did not think of is that one cannot attach the lens cap onto the filter, being a thin filter there is no room to clip in on - I eventually have to get a cap that goes over the outside of the filter ring, since I often leave the pol filter on the lens when I stow it away.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from would buy again Great, dramatic results with this filter. Gorgeous deep blue skies, and in general all greens and blues seem enhanced. However, beware of the potential for striping when used with a wide-angle lens. I am an early stage digital photographer and still have no idea how to remove the brighter stripes that formed when I used it with a Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM for Canon. Also, beware of over tightening. I am currently looking for a filter wrench to get this filter off of the lens. I hope it's not cross-threaded.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with the results Purchased this filter for my Tokina 11-16mm lens and so far it seems to work great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 77 mm polarizer i use this product mainly for shooting around water and it works great at reducing/eliminating the glare off the water. the only thing i wish it had was the capability to allow the use of the lense cover so as to keep it protected if i am shooting with another camara at the time. thank you darin s. andersen

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made especially for wide-angle lens This is a top notch filter for my 10-24 Nikon zoom. To make sure there is no vignetting, I tested to confirm that it does not happen. I have not seen any flaring which was a concerning since light is being captured from such a wide angle of view. Only complaint is that I cannot put my lens cap on without taking the filter off, but that is a minor issue to not having any vignetting. Although a little pricier than normal, I would buy it again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Filter This filter works as it should and it is easy to turn the ring to get the optimal effect. It also screws onto the lens easily. I had had a Nikon thin polarizing filter that this one replaces after I scratched the Nikon and the main difference between the two is that the Tiffen doesn't allow you to put a cap on top of the filter. I knew this when I purchased it, but I must say it would be nice if I could protect it with a lens cap.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effective filter w/wide angle lens Using with 16-50mm zoom lens on Pentax K10D. No vignetting even at widest angle. Note again that there is no inner thread, so a lens cap will not fit over it.The filter conveniently has a visible scoring on ring to orient its rotation. Paid $ for it at B&H. Big disappointment that Tiffen has raised price more than 60%. Not sure if I'd have purchased it for the current price of $.
