Tiffen 82mm Circular Polarizing Filter
Key Features
  • Makes a Blue Sky Bluer
  • Enhances Clouds
  • Eliminates Reflections
  • High Quality ColorCore Glass
Tiffen 82mm 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

question

I am considering the purchase of a Sigma 150-500mm lens for a Canon 7D. Is the thread on this filter compatible to the above-mentioned lens? Thanks.JH
Asked by: Anonymous
No, it would not. The Sigma 150-500mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM APO Autofocus Lens for Canon EOS uses 86mm filters, not 82mm filters. The Tiffen 86mm (Coarse Thread) Circular Polarizing Filter, B&H # TICP86C, would be the filter for your stated lens.

question

I have a Nikon D3400 with a 70-300mm lens , will this fit?
Asked by: Anonymous
We would need more information about the 70-300mm zoom lens on your camera. If the lens is a Nikkor lens, please note Nikon made several versions of the 70-300mm zoom lens resulting in some lenses having different filter sizes from one another.Nikon usually indicates the filter size on the barrel of the lens or on the front ring of the lens (where the lens cap would attach to).You can ask for the correct size Tiffen Circular Polarizer once you know the filter size of your particular lens.
