Tiffen 30mm 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.  

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

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly! This fit perfectly on my Sony HDR-SR1. This circular polarizer makes a dramatic difference; especially when using it outside. The colors just seem to pop out.....There is nothing bad about this product. It does exactly what it is supposed to do.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from slight disappointment Overall as good as one would expect from Tiffen, but the rotating part is very loose and will move by itself, I see this a a bit sloppy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Filter We bought this filter for our small camera, the Sony HDR-CX360V. It does a good job bringing detail to sky shots and makes colors pop.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Polarizing for the money Needs to come with a lens cap but other than that more than worth the money
