General Brand 72WIDUVP Overview

  • 1Description

The Tiffen 72mm UV Protector Wide Angle Mount Filter is a general use, clear filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. This filter is especially useful when photographing at high altitudes or around bodies of water. No additional coloration or contrast is provided, allowing you to pair this filter with others.

The UV filter is also useful as a general protective filter to leave on lenses at all times. Filters help to reduce dust and moisture from reaching your lens element and provide additional protection in case of drops or situations where scratching could occur.

This filter features a slimmer profile mounting ring, which is ideal for use with wide angle lenses. It does not have front filter threads for stacking filters.

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 1/10,000th of an inch, then mounting to precision metal rings.

Absorbs some ultraviolet light and reduces bluish cast of daylight.

    General Brand 72WIDUVP Reviews

    72mm UV Protector Wide Angle Mount Filter is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functions what it was made to do. Very useful. Described perfectly. But does not allow the attachment of a lens cap onto the filter. Filter must be taken off to attach a lens cap (onto the lens itself).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear Glass Always a Good Investment I really like the quality of the lenses that Tiffen makes and it is an invaluable investment to get a protective glass filter of any kind to protect your camera's glass on it's lense. This is an easy to use product that just screws right onto the lense of your existing camera and protects it from rocks or water or anything that might normally damage your cameras lense. It also makes shooting outside shots better. It clears the scenes up with UV filter which makes the picture seem less foggier. Overall great product, should be a no brainer when buying a new camera.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works, but cannot use Lens Cap The item seems to work adequately, with the caveat that I have not closely monitored the quality with & without filter mounted. However, my gripe, and this may be a result of the Wide Angle specification, is that I cannot use the Lens Cover with this filter mounted.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fits the lens but not the cover Very easy to attach to the lens, however for some reason it doesn't fit well with the cover. The cover would come off very easily

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job Have this filter on an 18-200 zoom. No vingetting at wide mm. Does the job protecting the lens and was a very good value for a non multi-coated filter. Only drawback, which I knew when I purchased, was that the lens cap (in this case Nikon) does not stay on with the low profile. I just have to get used to the fact of not needing the cap with the filter in place. Old habit, I like my lens cap!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be better This wide angle filter is lower profile, significanly lower profile than a standard filter. The only thing is that at 24mm focal length full frame there is still bad vignetting. I would actually recommend buying a filter slighly larger and using a step up ring instead.
