Tiffen Ultra Pol Overview

The Tiffen 5x6" Circular Ultra Polarizing Filter is a wonderful filter designed to bring significantly more "snap" to your images. If a traditional polarizer doesn't give you enough "zip", the "Ultra" polarizer gives you a little more. It will bump up your blue skies even more - making the difference between a good photo and a great image.

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.

Your deep blue sky will become even "bluer"

The description on this CPL makes a point of specifying that its non-coated . Is that supposed to be a good thing? Aren't multi-coated filters better at controlling reflections than non-coated filters? Since this filter is clearly aimed at professionals and considering its price, shouldn't it be coated?
Asked by: Claude
Claude, the advantage is you are not paying for multi-coating which is not necessary.
