Tiffen 77mm Circular Polarizing Filter
Key Features
  • Makes a Blue Sky Bluer
  • Enhances Clouds
  • Eliminates Reflections
  • High Quality ColorCore Glass
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.  

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

How much vignetting would this lens have on a tokina 11-16 lens on a Nikon D7200?
Asked by: Joe
Your camera body is not full frame and has a 1.5x magnification factor. As a result your 11-16mm lens when used on this body is essentially a 16.5mm -24mm lens. There should be no vignetting given these focal lengths when using a standard CP filter. However, if you are concerned Tiffen does make a low profile filter to avoid vignetting: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/163451-REG/Tiffen_77WIDCP_77mm_Circular_Polarizing_Wide.html

Can I put a lens hood over the filter?

Can I put a lens hood over the filter?
Asked by: Liam
Sure. Some dedicated lens hoods attach to the lens behind and over the filter. Some lens hoods attach via the filter thread, in which case this filter has a front thread for additional attachments too. Please note that it may be difficult with some hoods to reach the filter to rotate the polarizing filter.

question

I have a canon 60D with a 18-135mm lens. Would this be the proper filter size for my lens? Thanks.
Asked by: Anonymous
The Canon 18-135mm lens has a 67mm diameter. So it uses 67mm filters. Here is the 67mm equivalent:http://bhpho.to/1fXHRKv

I bought this polorizer a few months ago. However, I don't see much difference. Is is possible that I am not using it correctly?
Asked by: Roohollah
Circular Polarizing filters work best under partly cloudy conditions, shooting at a 90-degree angle from the sun, in order to best darken the sky and increase the contrast and whiteness of clouds. Polarizers are also effective for removing the glare from water and glass surfaces like windows. Don't forget to rotate the filter to adjust the strength based on your angle from the sun!

The Zeiss Compact Portable Lens Care System would be a good way to clean the filter and any other filters and lenses you have. http://bhpho.to/1bIaWKz
