Tiffen 62mm 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

    62mm Circular Polarizing Filter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 95.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product at a good price I use the filter for landscape and closeup flower pics. Very even polarization effect across the frame. I'm quite pleased with the filter, and will use it regularly in the field. Images of cloud effects over the Sierra mountains & Lake Tahoe have been fantastic. These filters don't work well when wearing gloves. The edge of the threaded ring, while grooved, is not easily accessible when installing and removing the filter. Motion of the polarizing ring, however, is quite smooth. Very little glare effects from the Sun, but best to use a lens shade. With proper care due any filter, I expect it to last a lifetime of service.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Filter This filter does its job well for the price. There is no need to go out and purchase $ filters when you can experience nearly the same quality in this filter. Little to no colour cast, excellent build quality and relatively thin rim. Excellent accessory to throw on your lens to greatly enhance your outdoor photography. Also doubles approximately as a 2 stop ND Polarizer.For the price of this filter, its not worth getting a 77mm filter and using a step up ring. I purchased this filter in the exact size of my primary lens so i could also use my lens hood. Step up rings and lens hoods don't mix.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I preferred my Hoya It works like a polarizer should and I'm glad it has threads for filter stacking but it's so thin it really only has one thread to catch and if you accidentally turn it the wrong way while adjusting it, it can fall off in your hand as it's not even a full turn to undo screw it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value I've been using Tiffen filters (CP, ND and Spilt ND) for about 8 years. My experience has been very good. First, I've never had a problem with optical distortion. I always worry about a cheap filter optically distorting the image in front of a $500 lens. I've never had that issue with Tiffen filters. Also, colors remain true with no noticeable shift. Second the filters are sufficiently durable from most small (less than 1 ft) drops and tend not to scratch when properly cleaned with solution and a micro cloth. They will not survive a three foot drop onto rocks without a hairline fracture, but the fracture was on near the rim and I still use the filter. Third, the polarizing effect is just what I want, e.g. skies are bluer and reflections on water are dramatically reduced. Fourth, I have never had a case with the filter seizing on the lens even in 0 degree weather. I have had another filter seize on the CP filter in the cold when they were stacked. I suspect the filter rings were dissimilar materials. In summary, I find them to be a good value for the enthusiast level photographer, combining little to no optical or color distortion, good durability and lower price point.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great filter I am pretty new to using other filters than protection filters and I am pretty impressed with the images and also the quality of the filter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great filter for the price! I'm not a professional photographer, however I ordered 5 filters all made by Tiffen (UV and Polarized) and I'm very pleased with them all! This particular filter screws on very easily, is very secure and rotates for selecting the perfect amount of polarizing. The frame is small enough that you can add other filters on top of this without worrying about them being in your imagery. It also comes with a nice durable plastic case that I use for storing it when I have an alternate filter on my camera. In conclusion, I would recommend this filter!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I always recommend a Polarizing filter for scenic work. No color change and clear distortion free.
