The Tiffen 55mm 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.

    55mm Linear Polarizer Filter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Polarizing filter not for wide angles I bought this filter for a 14 mm wide angle lens that I have on my Canon AE-1 35 mm. I went out and shot a whole roll of Velvia 100, mostly landscape and seascape panoramas. The results were very mixed. On the one hand the filter successfully eliminated unwanted glare on water and rock surfaces. But in many of the photos sky colors were dramatically uneven, with top portions of sky being a much deeper blue than areas closer to the horizon. I've used Tiffen polarizing filters on 50 mm lenses with mostly brilliant results, especially when it comes to capturing evenly blues skies. Lesson learned: polarizing filters are not very effective with wide angle lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good filter resonable price. I usually buy only Tiffen & Hoya filters because they are made in the USA & Japan. These USA Tiffen filters have performed well for me. Also B&H as usual has them at a good price as well. I would highly recommend.
