Tiffen "Hot Mirror" filters ...

Does anyone have any experience with the Tiffen "Hot Mirror" filters on a digital camera? They are supposed to remove a significant amount of the infrared component of the light reaching the CCD, which, due to its extended sensitivity to infrared, can influence the color accuracy of a digital image.

The Tiffen hot mirror works fine on my D500. On some cameras it's not needed as the lens system already has some amount of IR filtering. When IR is present it causes some tinting of sky towards purple. The filter works as a mirror by reflecting the 800 - 1100 nanometer wavelengths. This is the range that causes the problem. I wouldn't just buy one without determining if the camera really needs it. Mine may not need it in most cases but many of my pictures come from the Arctic and there's no way to do some over again. I had a real problem with a previous Casio so I didn't want to take any chances.

Why does my sigma tiffen lens work on my rebel T5i & not on my rebel T2i camera says no connection to lens

Tiffen is a brand of filters not a lens.
if your sigma lens will work on 1 camera and not on the other then check the lens mount, electronic contacts, clean them if needed.
check the settings in the camera if there needs to be a change.

Camera won't turn on

gently lift the mirror and check the shutter blades. Shutter failures are common on these. Also check the door switches. There is a switch with a small flipper that is closed when the battery door is fastend to the camera, and the same for the SD card door. If either of these switches is damaged the camera will not power up

What is real color/tone of the filter glass appiarance of the Tiffen 82mm Enhancing filter ? I received with greenish tone Number: 82EF1 List Price: $162.99 UPC: 049383052152 Filter Format:...

The enhancing filters I've used (58, 62 and 77mm) have a pink magenta color to them. What I found was I needed to do a custom white balance with the filter in place to come out with a more pleasing enhancement. I also ran into the problem using neutral density filters giving me pink clouds, once I did a custom white balance this ended.

Using filters

Both filters perform the same task.

The filters reduce excess red tones that affect daylight film when shooting early morning or late evening. They are also effective if your flash exposures are too 'warm'. The filters I believe have a filter factor of 1.3 and require 1/3 f-stop of additional light.

Tiffen 2X teleconvertor telephoto lens

I was testing the new Kenko 2x teleconverter I just got. Seems to work, but only at full zoom. But I left the epson supplied adapter ring on when I turned the camera off, and it interferred with the lens cover, and jammed it. It's a 4 leaf shutter assembly, and mine is screwed up so it won't open or close. Needless to say I'm kind of unhappy. I've heard Epson service is good, guess I'm about to find out. If you use the adapter, take it off when you turn the camera on or off!

Lens Protection Size!!!

Get a CLA-1 lens tube. It screws into the camera body. The other end accepts 43mm accessories. Put on a 43-49mm step-up ring. Into that screw a 49mm UV filter. (The step-up ring is needed to separate the filter from the extended lens.) Leave the UV filter on at all times. Throw away the lens cap.

Macro converter

I had good results with my Oly 2020 and a set of Tiffen close-up lenses (+7 and +10); they are 37mm, so won't work with the 2100, but you can find something similar in 49mm and larger size.
