Tiffen UV Protector Filter
The most essential filter you can own. The Tiffen UVP is a cost effective solution for protecting your digital camera lens against dust, moisture, fingerprints, scratches and damage. This filter can be kept on your camera lens at all times.
Tiffen Circular Polarizer Filter
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.

The Tiffen 77mm Photo Twin Pack contains a UV Protection filter and Circular Polarizer. 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°), rotate it around the axis of the index finger. It will point out the band of deepest blue from horizon to horizon.UV Protector Protects your camera or camcorder lens against dust, moisture, fingerprints, scratches and damage. This filter can be kept on your camera at all times. UVHaze (UV) filters are wise initial investments. They help protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs. If desired they can be left on the lens at all times for protection. Haze filters provide additional benefits of correction for Ultraviolet (UV) light which can register on film and videotape as a bluish cast and can obscure distant details. Ultraviolet filters allow you to correct for the UV effect to varying degrees. Haze-1 filters absorb approximately 71 percent of UV.Note! Circular polarizers are specifically designed for use with auto-focus SLR cameras (They will also work on manual systems and video cameras without problems)Features: Essential general-use outdoor color filterProduces deeper skies and minimizes reflections in black and white and color photographyCombine a Polarizer with a Red 25 for incredibly dramatic black and

I am a long-time user of Tiffen filters because they're made in the USA, they're glass (not acrylic), and they hold up to the sort of abuse wildlife photographers have to subject them to.
The included travel bag is for one filter, as other reviews have noted. I personally use a filter holder with plastic dividers to carry an assortment of filters, but to each their own. This is a nice solution if you just need to swap them out quickly.
My reviews are not full of tech terms and percentages. I don't tell you how many lumens it took before image quality broke down. If that's what you are looking for, I would suggest [...]. I try to write it in terms that anyone can understand. My test criteria was simply: put the filter on the lens; point it at a dark scene; pan towards the sun. When I noticed flare or ghosting, I quit.
The UV filter. You get what you pay for, and this is no exception. In the grand scheme of things, this is not a high quality filter. But it is a good filter, especially when you consider what you paid for it. I seem to get more flare and am a bit more prone to ghosting with the filter in place, than without it. However, pointed away from any bright, contrasty, source of light, it does it's job, and does it good. I keep it parked under my lens cap, and use it most of the time while I'm shooting for fun. I take it off when I need to be sure of the shot.
The CPL (Circular Polarizer). Again, you get what you pay for. But this time you get a little more. While not a professional filter, it does a darn good job. Fantastic for the price. It does tend to add to the flare and ghost factor, but keep in mind, this filter only works at right angles to the sun. So that should take care of the flare and ghosting issue.
On the down side of the CPL. It may be just this filter that I have, but it seems a little difficult to get started on the lens. And it does not take many turns to seat (about 1.5). This makes me a little nervous about dropping it, or it falling off. Again, this could be my lens. Secondly, it's rotation is rather stiff. In fact, I have unscrewed it while trying to adjust it. Lastly, it tends to make the sky a bit too dark, or blue for my liking. But that could be just my taste, and is easily avoided by paying attention when I adjust (rotate) it.
All in all, very good value. If you are looking for bang for the buck, this is it. If flare and ghosting matter to you, save your money and go for the professional line of filters offered by Tiffen.
