General Brand 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.

    55mm UV Protector Filter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 74.
    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 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for your Lens, added warmth. I love attaching these filters to my lenses. They add an extra layer of warmth to your photos while protecting your main lens from unwanted dust and scratches. I recommend this product to all photography who have spent a pretty penny on their professional gear. All my lenses have a filter attached to them and I love the results...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good UV protection with a low price I'm new to DSLR photography, and this was the way to go according to the reviews. It was cheap, and fits right over the lens for added protection. In time I will have to experiment with photo quality both with the lens on and off, but at least now I don't have to worry about being OCD about the lens getting smudged or scratched.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly What I Needed Well priced. Protects me lens. Fit perfectly. I'm not a fan of lens caps, so my UV filter does all the protecting of a lens cap without the hassle of taking it on and off. Of course, it also has the benefit of controlling the amount of ultraviolet light that hits the sensor. Basic piece that every lens should have.
