Tiffen 52POL overview

  • 1Description

The Tiffen 52mm Linear Polarizer Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.

A linear polarizer only differs from a circular polarizer in that it does not contain a quarter wave plane that enables use of auto focus and exposure features. Linear polarizers are best suited for use with manual cameras, such as view cameras, that are not dependent on internal mechanisms to determine focus or metering settings.

Tiffen filters are made using ColorCore technology, a process that involves laminating the filter substrate between 2 pieces of optical glass, grinding flat to a tolerance of 10,000th of an inch, and then mounting to precision metal rings.

    Tiffen 52POL reviews

    52mm Linear Polarizer Filter is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk I ordered two of these filters to use as a cheap variable neutral density filter (two perfect linear polarizers with their relative polarization vectors at 90 degrees will completely extinct light). I get roughly a two f stop change in overall light transmission while stacking and rotating the filters. This is extremely poor performance (polarized sunglass pairs usually do much better). There is some polarization effect for normal photographic use (minimizing non-metallic surface reflections and darkening the sky) but they are not as good as an old Vivitar linear polarizer that I have had for 30 years or more. Something is wrong with these filters.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product for the price I mostly use this product to ward off reflections from windows when shooting through them, and I have not noticed any degradation of the image under those already difficult circumstances. The rotation movement is smooth, but there is a slight grinding (why it lost a rating star). Although, the grinding is not severe enough for me to buy a more expensive product the next time even if it were smoother, or annoying enough given I don't use the filter all the time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ... an excellent filter In summer, when sun angles are high, it is difficult to get nice blue skies. But with this cheap polarizer filter, one can restore those washed out colors by reducing glare and improving dynamic range. A must have for anyone who does landscape photography.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Polarizer Simply a good filter. Good price and works well for both the sky or water filtering. Good glass quality
    Date published: 2010-08-15
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for the job I purchased this to photograph oil paintings... lit from left & right at 45 degrees with daylight balanced LED panel/soft boxes. The polarizer worked perfectly in removing the remaining reflected light from the painted canvas.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tiffen Polarizer does not disappoint This polarizer is very affordable, and does what you wany a polarizing filter to do. It effectively reduces glare & bothersome reflections, and the cost is very low compared to competitors.
    Date published: 2014-10-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Polarizer for the cost Glass is flawless, as expected from Tiffen. Works well with my 50mm Normal Canon lens, though can easily become unscrewed while trying to adjust the polarization.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Service I photograph vehicles most of the time and this product is great at reducing (if not removed) the glare or reflections in the photos.
