Tiffen 58PTP overview

The Tiffen 58mm Photo Twin Pack consists of a UV Protection filter and Circular Polarizer.

UV Protection Filters
UVHaze (UV) filters are wise initial investments. They help protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs. If desired they can be left on the lens at all times for protection. Haze filters provide additional benefits of correction for Ultraviolet (UV) light which can register on film and videotape as a bluish cast and can obscure distant details. Ultraviolet filters allow you to correct for the UV effect to varying degrees. Haze-1 filters absorb approximately 71 percent of UV.

Circular Polarizers
Light rays which are reflected become polarized. Polarizing filters are used to select which light rays enter your camera lens. They can remove unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water or glass and also saturate colors providing better contrast. The effect can be seen through the viewfinder and changed by rotating the filter. The filter factor varies according to how the filter is rotated and its orientation to the sun.

Note: Circular polarizers are specifically designed for use with auto-focus SLR cameras (They will also work on manual systems and video cameras without problems)

    Tiffen 58PTP reviews

    58mm Photo Twin Pack (UV Protection and Circular Polarizing Filter) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 45.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good UV, Polarizer not the best The UV Filter is well made and has a good quality. I didn't notice any picture quality loss, but also did't really compared it. The Polarizer doesn't fit that well on my NX300 (18-55mm kit lens) and it's difficult to attach it properly. Seems like the Thread is different to the UV-Filter. Since it is my first filter i'm not that experienced, but for me it's not easy to adjust the polarizer. It may be caused by my mirrorless camera without a viewfinder, but the filter doesn't have any thresholds when turning. That means you don't know on what position/setting it actually is and in sunlight it's impossible to adjust it by means of the 3 display.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great price, not the best UV Both of these filters are high-quality glass. The polarizer is excellent. The UV filter does not have much in the way of nonreflective coatings, so for example photographing points of light results in sometimes very odd flares (I do a lot of night photography). This does not seem to be a problem when there is a lot of ambient light around. And of course it is trivial to fix - just remove the UV filter when there are point sources in your composition.For the price it is impossible to beat these filters, just be aware of flares with the UV.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value I wanted the UV filter to protect my lens and was going on a trip to Maui soon, so I wanted the CP to make those beautiful blue waters/sky really come through - and they did! I also saved about $20 by purchasing them together.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Reasonable and cheap I've bought a number of these over the years. Every time I buy a new lens, the first accessory I purchase is this twin pack. The metal ring that fastens the glass into the holder occasionally comes apart, but is at least easy to put back together. I've also noticed that with time the UV will slightly yellow, although it is very slight and I've never particularly noticed in my photos. It now comes with a nice case for the polarizer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from True Value These filters are exactly what I needed. The UV lowers unwanted light and the polarizer tones out the glare while enhancing the blues. They fit the lens well and were easy to thread into the mount. I learned a trick long ago that helps. Turn the ring counter clockwise until you feel the threads fall into alignment, then turn clockwise and tighten. Never have had a cross thread problem. For the price these filters are great. And B&H had them to me in super fast time. Thanks

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Deal For The Price I bought this filter kit a for my Olympus 14-42mm kit lens and they fit perfectly. My only complaint is that the threading on the UV filter seems weak, you have to be careful when you screw it on because if you go to far it slips out the the thread on the lens. This is a great value for a new photographer who isn't looking to spend to much on an accessory.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tiffen filters review Great value - UV filter plus polarizing filter in one container. That is a definite plus. Good quality and workmanship. I obtained this product at no charge from B and H Photo because I purchased a Nikon 2197 zoom lens from them (DX 55 - 300 mm VRII f/4.5-5.6). The filters came with the purchased Nikkor lens. They are literally great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value; Beautiful results I used these on my Canon lens right out of the box. Nice packaging, and comes with a convenient pouch to keep them secure. Great for protecting your valuable lenses at a good price. These really helped to clear up my landscape shots, and made the beautiful mountains in the background of my portraits less hazy and the sky bluer.
