Tiffen 46UVP overview

  • 1Description

The Tiffen 46mm UV Protector 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.

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.
Clear filter provides no additional coloration or contrast, allowing you to pair this filter with others.

    Tiffen 46UVP reviews

    46mm UV Protector Filter is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 63.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Typical inexpensive lens protection I bought this filter to protect my 20mm F/1.7 lumix G lens. While performing this task, the product performs admirably. After all, its fairly simple. I'm not convinced that it has strong construction though. The filter is comprised of approximately three components: The glass element, the main mounting ring, and a threaded ring to secure the glass element in the main mounting ring. When I was cleaning the filter with a LensPEN I noticed the glass element shifting around. This implies that the small threaded ring was not tightened adequately at the factory. This is not a major issue as anyone can do it themselves, but it is a bit concerning.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 46mm UV Protector Filter by Tiffen I purchased this filter as an indurance policy to protect the glass on my Panisonic HDC-TM700 camcorder. The filter works fine when using the camera to record HD video, unfortunately it must be removed when taking still photos. The flash is just above the lense of the camcorder, and therefore behind the filter when attached to the camcorder. I took a few photos that were all washed out before it dawned on me that the flash was reflecting off the filter. Once I removed the filter, the photos looked great. I would not say there is a problem with the filter itself, but should not be used in conjuction with the camcorder when taking still photos.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weird glare It's cheap and it gets the job done, but when pointing directly to a light source it casts a weird green/bluish glare that's annoying and to some it might compromise the picture that they're trying to take. I've never tried a more expensive filter but this weird glare issue is certainly inclining me to do so.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for every lens Protecting filters are a must for every lens. In an everyday situation the chances that you will touch the front element of your precious lens with your dirty and oily fingers are high, not to mention any hits to hard surfaces. So to protect your lens from such mishaps you should spend a little more to secure a lifetime guarantee. I recommend this product because it has no effect on the quality of the picture you are taking while protecting your lens. If you touch it accidentally just rub it with a soft cloth, if you break it just buy another one. It is worth the extra investment.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst filter ever Bad, bad, bad! Adds tons of flare. Sticking with high quality filters like Hoya!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Must have Just bought this for my Sigma 30mm prime lens. If you are just buying your first real lens, having a filter is a must. For $16 this will protect your cameras lens, and prevent you from replacing a lens that could costs hundreds. Stiffen filters are high quality and affordable, so this is a smart investment. When you buy a lens take a look under the recommended accessories, B&H always lists the appropriate filter size for your lens there. My 30mm filter needed a 46mm lens, which was a little counter-intuitive so always check first.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a funny thing... A funny thing, that is, in a self-mocking way. I bought a lens, forgetting to buy a UV filter, until after I had placed my order. The lens arrived on a Friday, the filter on the following Monday. I needed very much to shoot with the lens over the weekend; but without a UV filter, what was I to do? I bought one locally for three times the price. Sigh. I'll be patient in the future. This 46mm UV Protector Filter by Tiffen is everything it should be. Now that I inadvertently have a spare, looks like I'll just have to buy a lens to go with it.
