Product Overview

Haze-1 Safeguard your lens and absorb UV light. Film and video are more sensitive to UV light than our eyes are. This often shows up as a bluish cast in images, especially shots from high altitudes and long distances, particularly over water. Ultra Violet filters are available in a variety of UV absorption levels. * Reduces excessive blue by absorbing almost three quarters of UV light. Best general purpose UV control Eliminates UV problems from most situations where increased haze tends to wash out color and image clarity Protects your camera or camcorder lens against dust, moisture, fingerprints, scratches and damage Can be kept on your camera at all timesAvailable for Wide Angle lensesFilter Properties At A GlanceFront ThreadsYesAccepts Snap In Lens CapYesFilter Ring Depth (Less Threads)5mmCoatingUn-CoatedFilter Factor0 - StopsClick on the link below for a comparable filter at a lower price:http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=370874245632&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:ITWhy You Need Tiffen Optical Filters There is something to be said for creating images at the moment of exposure—the way most of the world’s greatest pictures have been made. Tiffen optical filters let you do just that, by being able to preview the effect you’ll get when it matters most—when you’re behind the camera.There is nothing wrong with using electronic plug-in filter programs that let you add effects or manipulate the image after it’s taken. But if you really want to own the final images you compose, there’s no substitute for Tiffen optical filters. They’re simply unsurpassed when it comes to controlling color balance and special effects with precision, repeatability, and convenience.It’s important to remember that filtering the light, before it passes through the lens and strikes the image sensor or film, has important advantages. It lets you match the brightness range of the scene to the characteristics of the capture medium, and get professional quality results even under tough lighting conditions. Tiffen Polarizing filters actually polarize the light, to eliminate reflections on glass and water surfaces while retaining sub-surface details. Neither of these effects are possible with after-the-fact plug-in filter systems, which can only provide filter effects, not true light filtration.Why Tiffen Filters Are Superior Tiffen filters are manufactured using ColorCore™ technology, a closely guarded proprietary 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 metal rings. The ColorCore process allows us to control the color and density of Tiffen filters, and the characteristics of special effects filters with much greater accuracy than typical dyed-in-the-mass filters, which usually exhibit color and density variations.When Tiffen filters are ground and polished, the ColorCore is unaffected, so color and density remain uniform. Indeed, when you hold a group of Tiffen filters of the same type against a white sheet of paper, they all look identical—because they are! Try this with our competitors’ filters and you’re likely to see slight variations.Maybe that’s why most top Hollywood motion picture studios rely on Tiffen filters for their multimillion-dollar productions, or why we can custom-make an exact replacement for them if one breaks on the job. That’s consistency, and excellence—two pretty good reasons why, when it comes to filters, you should rely on Tiffen too.See the Difference Tiffen Filters MakeTiffen filters make a big difference indoors, outdoors, in close-up portraits or milewide landscapes, in bright sun or shade, and in many other photo situations?the right Tiffen filter delivers a great image instead of a snapshot. Whether you’re shooting photos or video, in black and white or color, Tiffen filters offer a variety of subtle, special and spectacular effects to give you more enjoyment every time you use your camera or camcorder.
