General Brand 67CP overview

Tiffen 67mm Circular Polarizer Filters - 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.

If you're out walking on a lovely day - in the mountains or at the beach - and you want to get a fabulous shot of a cloud-filled sky or make the water seem more saturated, then a polarizer is the way to go. This filter is the best way to make the clouds stand out, increase or decrease the saturation of the ocean or increase or decrease the reflection off the water. You can also use this filter when shooting into glass or windows since it will, again, either increase or decrease reflections.

If you're shooting black and white and want to simulate a threatening storm, try throwing on a #25 Red filter. The vista will take on the appearance of an imminent, ominous storm. 

Along with a UV or Skylight Filter, a polarizing filter should be a part of everyone's gear bag. It can turn a run-of-the-mill image into a stunning, creative photo by increasing color saturation.  

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

This filter eliminates ultraviolet rays from outdoor shots as well as polarizing the light to remove reflections, and increase color saturation, without affecting the overall color balance
Can dramatically enhance a blue sky and make the clouds more prominent
Used best at right angle to the sun
Effective with cameras that use beam splitters in the path of the TTL light meter and with AF cameras

    General Brand 67CP reviews

    67mm Circular Polarizing Filter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 215.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Polarize your world! The 67mm Circular Polarizing Filter is used on my Canon 60D with 18-135mm lens. It's great for landscape shots especially when you're shooting perpendicularly to the sun. It gives the high sky the most magnificent deep blue color. It's also great for eliminating reflections from glass, water, etc. Sometimes it's a bit difficult to find the sweet spot because you have to rotate the front of the filter until you see the effect you want through the viewfinder, and sometimes that effect can be quite subtle depending upon the subject and the lighting. However, with a bit of practice, this filter can bring your photography to new levels of excellence.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have Filter for Serious Photograp Whether you are a professional, student or serious amateur, a polarizer is a must have filter. Use it to reduce reflections on non-metallic surfaces like water or glass. Also use it to darken sky's and saturate colors. It is important if you will be using auto focus to be sure you get the circular version of this filter rather than a linier polarizer in order for the auto focus to work correctly. Tiffen makes high quality optical glass filters available in a variety of sizes and this is one I highly recommend. Its a very versatile filter with a lot of different applications.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works This is the first circular polarizer I've ever bought. I'm a portrait photographer by trade so I've never needed one. It's nice for landscape shots when you really want to kill the gray, deepen the blue, and show more contrast in the clouds. Beats having to gradient in post on every shot. I found this filter even more impressive when used while shooting HDRs. It also works to kill water reflections on streams and such. Useless in midday and when it's overcast. All and all it works as advertised. I'm sure the more expensive filters do a better job but again, selling landscape shots isn't my thing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tiffen 67mm Circular Polarizing Filter a Christmas Hit I spent a good bit of time researching the various brandsand reading a lot of reviews. At first I planned to drop a$150+- on a filter, but upon the research, there just wasn'tthe data to support that I would be gaining quality for theprice of a Big Brand! I purchased the product to use withmy new Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 Lens. The pictures were great. The filter mounts well, good snug fit, and removes as wellas it went on. The pictures were sharp, excellentsaturation of color, nice contrast and not to dark as thesefilters may often cause. Great performance in the Tennesseemountains. In short the filter was a real asset to the 20DCanon and the said lens. After getting up-close andpersonal in PhotoShop Elements 5.0, I can't see any loss inany area of my photos good shooting!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from B&H and Tiffen Circular polarizer B&H sold me the best value not their most expensive polarizer. B&H and Tiffen go great together. Both for $ dollars. Here in BC Canada a camera and computer selling drug chain tried to sell me their tech brand 67mm polarizer for $72. It defocused the image and was junk. B&H & Tiffen for me and sincere thanks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product. Great Price This is a very nice filter for the price. I needed a cheap filter to do a particular job where I knew I would break a filter and did not want to break my $ B&W filter so I tried this one and was very impressed with its quality. I did end up breaking it so it was just that one use. One thing comparing it to my B&W, it does not have quite the detail that the B&W has. That is understandable though. I wouldn't expect $ quality out of a $ filter. Short version, great filter if you want high quality without breaking the bank.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Causes Focus issues... yes I know what I am doing I've owned a few of these Tiffen Polarizing filters and they normally work out great. The sky is a deep blue, I can shoot a few stops lower in sunlight, yadda yadda. but the particular filter I received just doesn't work on my 85mm lens. All my photos come out blurry no matter what. I first noticed the issue when I was shooting with strobes outdoors. I took the filter off and my photos were tack sharp, I popped it back on, adjusted for exposure and nope, still blurry. I'm shooting at 1/200th, so there is no issue with shutter speed here. I also tried diagnosing the issue on a later day outdoors in the sun. Shooting at 1/500th, I was still getting a slight focus blur when my AF said it was spot on. I've read that some CP filters can get condensation in between the lenses causing this. I still think Tiffen makes great products but just a word of caution when buying their filters, I got a bad one in this case.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it's designed to do. I use the circular polorizing filter for on the water portraits on resort excursion boats. The filter, as I have found with most Tiffen filters, is a lot of bang for the buck. It is a quality filter at a very reasonable price. Brings out the blues of the sea surface and the drama of the clouds. I have to shoot fast and cannot take time to edit photos and the Tiffen polorizing filter is a Godsend. The only aspect that I would like to see improved would be to have a ratcheting device on the adjustment ring. It can change the amount of polorizing quite easily and if you are using a sunshade on your lens, you must remove the sunshade to readjust the filters adjustment ring. Not a big deal.
