Tiffen 55UVP Overview

  • 1Description

The Tiffen 55mm 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.
General protection filter reduces dust, moisture, and scratches from reaching lens elements.

    Tiffen 55UVP Reviews

    55mm UV Protector Filter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 78.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value! I quickly put the filter on my new camera and started taking dozens of photos. The filter offers great protection of my Leica lens, at an affordable price, and has had no adverse impact on photo quality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its a necessity for every lens This product works as advertised. It will protect your lens from potential damages should you be uncareful with your gear. It also protects front element from the weather. It is also easy to clean. Only downside is that it has considerable amount of flare if used at night. So this is only good for beginners and intermediate users in photography. Professionals who wants absolute quality might want to look for more professional options, such as multicoated Hoya HD or B+W F-pro uv filters

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BASIC LENS PROTECTION AT GOOD PRICE Had never had a lens w/o a UV filter. Tiffens are excellent. No problem fitting a to camera (Panasonic Lumix FZ70) and adding a polarizing filter. Very satisfied

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great As a photographer, you can never have too many of these. If you don't have one protecting your lens, get one now. You won't regret it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Durable glass. Not bad for a kit or just cheap lens. Problems with focus are not observed. The image quality is not affected.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fell apart (?)!!! After 30 years of shooting professionally I never had this happen (Its nice to still be able to have firsts).  The filter just plain fell apart. This was for a fixed focal 100mm. First it became loose and then the glass retaining ring popped off. Its just under the 1 year mark too.  I guess it was just a bad one. The optics are fine but I cant give it any more than 1 star for this reason. Ill be contacting Tiffen for a replacement.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Would have been a good lens protector, but glare ruins it I tried this on to protect my lens after it was smudged a couple of times when shooting outside. I used it for shooting pictures of a birthday party at home in the evening with Warm white light illumination. The camera took good photos when shooting perpendicular to a light source. But when shooting towards or opposite from the light source (especially when someone in the frame was wearing glasses), the pictures gave a weird glare, making the center of the picture hazy while the other subjects at the same distance remained in proper focus. Also, when looking the filter, the bad shape / fitment of glass is noticeable at the edges. I would rather pay more money and get a Hoya or B+W. I also tried the good filter test (glass should not feel present, amount of reflection and color of reflection) and this failed miserably in all the three tests. Used this with a D3500 with 18-55 kit lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great UV Filter Amazing filter for the price, not the best UV filter out there, but for my skill level i couldnt notice any difference from images between with filter and without filter. I use it mainly for protection, since i dont go to high altitudes to properly test this. Overall, nice price for such quality, because cheap filters can ruin your images.
