Product Highlights
  • 0.6 Neutral Density Filter
  • Increase Exposure Length
  • MRC Multi-Resistant Coating
  • Rugged Black Brass Filter Ring
  • High Quality Schott Glass

The B+W 72mm 0.6 ND MRC 102M Filter is a solid neutral density filter providing a 2 stop exposure. This 0.6 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily. Neutral density filters do not affect the overall coloration of the image.

The Multi-Resistant Coating (MRC) is both an anti-reflection coating as well as a protective surface. It helps to increase light transmission by reducing reflections, scattered light, and ghosting. Additionally, it offers greater protection to the filter substrate and stays cleaner for longer than uncoated filters.

B+W filters are constructed from high quality Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. They feature a brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

      Great filter

      By Leonardo

      from Toronto

      Comments about B+W 72mm 0.6 ND MRC 102M Filter:

      I use this with my Canon 50mm f1.2 on bright sunny days and it works great. No more blown out highlights. It's able to reduce the light enough to be able to shoot wide open at f1.2 while the sun is out and about. Makes the colors of foliage and sky nice and rich by reducing glare.

            If you are a landscape photographer and/or use flash outdoors and struggle to maintain a shallow depth of field (e.g. portraiture) then some type of ND filter is, in my opinion, a must-have. Everything about the B+W filters is top notch; from the materials and build quality to the optical properties. You can't go wrong with these filters.

              Comments about B+W 72mm 0.6 ND MRC 102M Filter:

              I bought this filter for my Canon HV40 in order to achieve a better depth of field on exterior footage and so far I have yet to find any serious flaws with this filter while using it on a Raynox 6600 lens. While shooting in 24f cinemode, almost instantly I noticed a much better range and sense of clarity with this filter attached than I had with the stand alone Raynox/HV40 setup. The only advice I have is not to hold it too close to the lens otherwise you will see a very small dot directly in the center of the frame. Other than that, awesome filter!

                        I was debating between buying a 2 stop vs. 3 stop filter and was glad to picked 2 stop. The viewfinder was darker with this filter on so with a 3 stop would have been harder to see through. 2 stop was spot on! Very happy with the purchase.

                          Excellent quality and threads are deep enough on front to accept another filter or a lens cap.

                          Being able to thread on a polarizing filter and cut light by a 3 f-stops when desired is a plus and the reason I bought this style instead of a thin one for wide angle use.

                          It will be used on a Nikon 105mm DC lens and I wanted to be able to shoot in full sun with the lens at f2.8~f4.

                          I consider B+W to be a good value in high quality filters.

                          I've used this neutral density filter to allow me to slow down shutter speed to take long exposures of water. It works great - I can get shutter speeds down to 1/15 to 1/6 of a second in daylight without having to stop down more than f/16. Produces lovely long exposures of water. Very neutral - no color shifts noticed. I only wish B+W would make a ND 0.9 (3-stop) with MRC coating so I could have just one filter and not have to couple this one with the ND 0.3 at times.

                              Comments about B+W 72mm 0.6 ND MRC 102M Filter:

                              It does what it's supposed to by being a "sunglass" for your lens. B&H says it's only a Multi Coated (MC) filter, but I received a Multi Resistant Coated (MRC) filter. They're more rugged and the glass part of the filter is actually harder than regular glass... so more resistant towards scratches.

                              I use the filter itself when it's bright outside and I want to use a f/1.4 or f/1.2 glass to get the thin depth of field they can produce. Sometimes, it may be too bright outside, so I cannot get a fast enough shutter speed to avoid an overexposed picture. That's what a Neutral Density filter is for.

                              Check the ND number to see which filter you need.
