Tiffen 72PTP overview

  • 1Description

The Tiffen 72mm 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 72PTP reviews

    72mm Photo Twin Pack (UV Protection and Circular Polarizing Filter) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 49.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would purchase this product again. I use the clear filter for indoor, hockey shots. I use the polarizing filter for outdoor, bright shots. I live on the water and the polarizing filter really helps cut the glare and make the pictures pop. I am not a professional photographer, but I have been into photography since high school - many years. I just purchased a Canon 50D. I also purchased a mid-range lens. Next year i'll go for the L series. Anyway, these are clear, dependable filters.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Entirely met expectations ...I purchased these filters to match the lens packaged with my new camera. I always use the UV protection to protect the lens, and enjoy the improved color and polarizing effects created by the circular polarizer. Both filters are required kit in my opinion.I did consider the new super hard Tiffen filters, but at the current price point, it would be far cheaper to destroy a couple of these familiar standard filters than purchase the new technology.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Every Time Two of the most useful filters that any photographer should have, a UV for every lens and a Circular Polarizing Filter for every size. The UV filter is obvious, protecting the front element of your much more expensive lens, but the Circular Polarizer is the go to filter for many photography situations. Buying both at the same time, as with this Twin Pack, is convient when you purchase a lens that has a filter size that you don't already own.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Economic solution, lacks cases Decent quality UV & Polarizer filters, at a very economic price. The disappointing part is that this twin filter pack only comes with one soft storage pouch. The UV filter is simply packed in a plastic ziplock bag inside the box .... Would rather have a 2-filter soft pouch or individual plastic cases to store these in. Probably not a big deal those who leave the UV filter on the lens all the time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Great Deal I used the Photo Twin Pack by Tiffen on my Canon XH-A1. I needed a UV protector filter to keep on all the time, and a polarizing filter to bring out the color in my videos. They both work great. The only downside is the circular polarizing filter feels kind of cheap; the twisting mechanism is oddly loose, but it was cheap enough to where that doesn't even matter. Buy in a heartbeat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does the job very well! Living in the semi-desert southwest, we have very aggressive sunlight for most of each day. To have these filters on my lens allows me to soften my images and not feel as if I have to always fight the strong light bouncing off of objects since I do not always shoot at the correct time of day. The filters are easy to place on my lens and I am so glad to have both of them in my collection.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again After reading good reviews about Tiffen, I decided to give them a try and i am very satisfied. Although new to the photography world, I too read about different products, but after using the uv and polarized lens protectors, you can see the difference in your shots with and without the lenses. I can not give it a 5 star rating because Im new to photography. Im very pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from true Love - LUV Just what I needed to get around the aggravation of white balance that can change quickly when working outside in the real world. With little and I mean little time my eye adjusted to seeing the light and quicker than I can take my camera away form my camera I have what I need. I think if a photographer wants to work quickly this is the best tool you can buy. MarthaLyn
