Tiffen 72mm 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

I bought this for my new sigma art lens 18-35 and it doesn’t seem to fit. Is there a trick to it?
Asked by: Lisa
The Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 Art lens does have a 72mm filter thread, so this filter should fit as long as it's not cross-threaded.

question

What polarizing filter fits on Tamron 18-400mm Di II VC HLD?
Asked by: Lori K.
Look around the end of the lens. Filter thread diameter is usually a number with a zero with a slash through it (symbol for diameter). If you cant find that, visit the manufacturers website or the product listed on B&H and look for the filter thread diameter under Specifications .

question

Can this be used on manual mode as well as automatic?
Asked by: Anonymous
The short answer is yes. When you use it on manual you will find you need to increase your basic exposure by at least 1 stop, possibly a little more. On automatic, you MAY also find you need to add a little exposure; you can override your auto setting by a 1/3 to 2/3 stops.
