The Tiffen 55mm Digital HT Circular Polarizing Multi-Coated Filters are a state of the art technological breakthrough in multi-coated photo and video filters. Made for the discerning professional and imaging enthusiast, Digital HT filters with Hi-Trans Double-Sided Titanium Multi-Coating surpass even military specifications for hardness and durability.

Digital High Transmission filters offer the strength of a Titanium coating combined with the purest optical quality glass and Tiffen's Academy Award winning ColorCore technology. They present unmatched scratch-resistant durability and worry-free cleaning while other coated filters on the market today cautiously suggest delicate, if any, cleaning procedures, in fear of destroying the coating (and thereby the filter).

And that's not all these High Transmission filters feature a low profile titanium finish ring and anti-reflective black lock ring which sets these filters apart from the rest. Polarizers provide color and contrast enhancement. Reflected light often shows up as whitish glare that washes out color in an image. A Polarizer corrects this problem producing deep, dramatically blue skies. It also removes glare from non-metallic surfaces, such as windows and water. Color saturation in general, especially outdoors, can be improved significantly.

A Circular Polarizer has the same effect as a Polarizer and is used on cameras with beam splitting metering systems commonly found on auto focus SLR's (for most 35mm auto-focus cameras see your camera manual). Area of sky most effectively polarized with a Circular Polarizer: Point your index finger at the sun. With your thumb extended at a right angle (90 degrees), rotate it around the axis of the index finger. It will point out the band of deepest blue from horizon to horizon.

Features:
  • This filter eliminates ultraviolet rays to remove haze from outdoor shots as well as polarizing the light to remove reflections, and increase color saturation, without affecting the overall color balance
  • State-of-the-art technological breakthrough in multi-coated photo and video filters
  • Surpass even military specifications for hardness and durability
  • Low profile titanium ring and anti-reflective black lock ring
  • 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 Tiffen to control the color and density of their 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
  • Top Hollywood motion picture studios rely on Tiffen filters for their multi-million dollar productions
  • Superior quality and design make Tiffen the overwhelming choice of moviemakers, professional photographers and even NASA
  • Tiffen has also been awarded an Emmy, from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, for its engineering excellence
