Key Features
  • Wide Angle (Low Profile Design)
  • Makes a Blue Sky Bluer
  • Enhances Clouds
  • Eliminates Reflections
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.

Tiffen Circular Polarizer Wide Angle Overview

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

Does it include a front cap?

Does it include a front cap?
Asked by: Nicola
The Tiffen 77mm Circular Polarizing Wide Angle (Low Profile Design) filter has very limited front filter threads to avoid the chance of vignetting in your images when shooting at wider focal lengths. As the lens cap attaches to the filter thread, attaching any lens cap will not be possible. We suggest taking this filter off your camera and returning it to its case when not in use. You should then attach a Tiffen 77mm UV Protection filter to the lens and attach the lens cap to that filter.

Will this 77mm filter fit onto the Canon RF 70-200mm f2.8 lens with the supplied Canon lens hood attached?
Asked by: Casey
Yes. Although I find it hard to adjust the polarization with the hood on. Not impossible, just a little clunky. I don't think my lens hood has the filter window as mentioned in the other answer.

Does this have female threads on the outside to attach a ND filter ?
Asked by: Brad
Tiffen "Wide Angle" filters have limited front filter threads to lessen the change of vignetting when shooting at wider focal lengths. For this reason, you cannot stack a filter on the front of this filter.

How does this compare to the Tiffen Digital HT CPL that is about $40 more? Which one is higher quality for videography/filmmaking?

The Tiffen CP Wide Angle is our standard circular polarizing filter with no front filter threads on the filter ring in order to prevent vignetting when shooting at wider focal lengths. The Tiffen Digital HT CP is our premium quality filter and includes multicoated glass to for scratch resistance and has a titanium coated filter ring.

does this work with sony FE 20 f1.8?

does this work with sony FE 20 f1.8?
Asked by: Himal
It definitely should since it works without vignetting on my APS-C 10-18 mm UVA zoom, which starts at 16mm FF equivalent. The Sony lens does not seem to have a front element that extends closer to the outer edge of the lens barrel than my lens. Conclusion is you are probably safe.

Can you mount a filter or screw in hood to the front of this filter?
Asked by: William
No; 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. As the Tiffen 58mm Circular Polarizing Wide Angle (Low Profile Design) Filter does not have front filter threads, you would not be able to connect a screw-in filter or a screw-in lens hood onto the front of the filter.
