The 52mm Digital Twin Pack Filter Kit from Tiffen contains two filters that have the strength of a titanium coating combined with high-end optical ColorCore Glass. They are designed for the outdoor shooter and represent a state of-the-art advancement in filter design. The low profile style is complemented by a titanium colored filter ring that matches many of today's modern digital cameras.
Using their patented ColorCore technology, this filter takes it to the next level by adding a very high scratch-resistant surface. There is no need to worry about cleaning this filter since the coating protects the surface, thereby maintaining the high-end optical quality of the glass.
The Titanium coating consistently reflects less than 1% of the imaging light hitting the front surface of the filter while transmitting nearly 99% (i.e. High-Transmission).
The Digital HT Ultra Clear ColorCore Glass Filter is used for color as well as black and white films. It also serves as a permanent lens protector. This filter is manufactured from high-quality ColorCore Glass and offers multi-coated protection for your lens. It is scratch-resistant and can be left on at all times. It is an excellent choice for today's digital, film and video cameras.
The value of a clear filter covering a lens has been well-documented over the years. How many stories have we all heard about photographers dropping lenses and smashing front elements? With a front lens protection filter on, the chances of preserving the valuable glass in your lens increases many fold. Shall we call it a form of inexpensive insurance?
A Circular Polarizing Filter should be a part of every photographer's gear bag. This rotating filter is the best way to make a blue sky bluer and enhance cloud formations. It can also be used indoors (or outdoors) to eliminate reflections from glass or the ocean.
The polarizer can be combined with other filters to achieve unique effects - such as when it is combined with a #25 Red filter. The result, even on a clear day will resemble an approaching storm. Contrast will be significantly boosted, clouds will dramatically stand out and the overall appearance of the scene will be ominous and threatening.
Tiffen's ColorCore glass is produced through a process that entails permanently laminating the filter material in between two pieces of optical glass that are ground flat to tolerances of a ten-thousandth of an inch, then mounting them in precision aluminum rings.
