Product Highlights
  • Helps to Eliminate Reflections and Glare
  • Reduces Haze and Blue Cast in Landscapes
  • Greater Color and Tonal Saturation
  • Slim-Line Mount for Wide Angle Lenses
  • Lightweight Aluminum Filter Ring
  • High Quality Schott Glass

The B+W 67mm Circular Polarizer Slim Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.

A circular polarizer only differs from a linear polarizer in that it contains a quarter wave plane in addition to the linear polarizing filter. The addition of this quarter wave plane is to circularly polarize the linearly polarized light for the use of auto focus and exposure functions. Due to how the light is broken down and filtered with a linear polarizer, auto focus and exposure accuracy become skewed during use. When the light becomes circularly polarized, it permits the use of these functions.

B+W filters are constructed from high quality Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. The slim filters are specifically designed for use with wide angle lenses and are only 0.2" / 5mm thick. They do not have front threads for stacking additional filters.

Note: This filter ring's outside diameter is slightly larger than the actual thread size, and because of this you may be unable to attach the lens manufacturer's bayonet-mounted lens hood to the lens while using this filter. This is dependent on your specific lens and how thick the front rim of the lens is; with thinner, low-profile lenses usually being affected more.

      I needed a polarizing filter to use on a wide-angle lens and it needed to be slim to avoid vignetting. This is one of the slimmer ones I found, and it's also extremely well-built, with a smoothly rotating front piece, and all at a lower price than competing brands. I first bought one in a 77mm size, and it worked so well I bought this one. Both are excellent products.

      The filter itself is not bad. The problem is that you cannot continue to use the lens cap that came with your lens. You have to use the lens cap that comes with the filter which falls off CONTINUOUSLY offering no protection for the lens. Very annoying. Plan to return and exchange for another.

          Though I haven't had the opportuity to use the B+W slim polarizing filter a lot yet it is a good quality and worked well on the pictures I've taken so far. Other reviewers mentioned that the suction-style lens cover that comes with it falls off easily or unexpectedly- but I haven't had that happen yet.

            The filter works well, does not distort the final image, and is a good tool for those who love photography and want to add quality to your photos. The only problem is that the cover that comes with the filter does not get very attached to the camera lens, and may fall. So the photographer can lose an accessory that protects the filter when not being used.

                As usual, I did what all my friends told me to do when I purchased a new sized polarizer filter and purchased B+W. Polarizer filters are the only filters I use and only when the scenery demands it. If i need lens protection, I am faithful at putting on the lens hood.

                    Comments about B+W 67mm Circular Polarizer Slim Filter:

                    After reading various reviews on different photo sites about circular polarizers, I selected the B&W for being in the upper mid range in quality and not too highly priced. (often you get what you pay for)

                    Upon receiving it, I was not disappointed. It has a solid feel, screws on to the lens without fuss. To my surprise, a lens cap that fits this slim polarizer was included because the standard cap does not. (it falls off like many have said). My first use with this filter turned out sharp and clear shots- giving me exactly what I wanted.

                          This is my first and only CP as of now, so I only knew what to expect from what I've heard. It definitely makes skies looks wonderful and blue, as well as crisp, clean images.
                          Some things I have found:
                          -Will not work with my original lens cap and the one it comes with simply slides off, which is annoying
                          -Does not easily come off once you put it on
                          -Major vignetting occurs with other filters (though this is normal with other CP's as well)

                          Other than that, it's great if you don't mind not having a cap. I just keep it in the bottom of my bag so that when I put my camera in, the lens is resting on the cap.

                            This circular polarizer works great. It mounts easily, has a nice slim profile. However, my cap for my lens will not fit and the one that comes with it is not secure and constantly falls off. I almost lost it several times in only the first 2 days I had it, opening up the filter to scratching. Other than that I have been very happy with the

                            I wanted a slim filter to use on the wide-end of my Nikon 16-85mm lens. This one is thin, good construction, and as a bonus, it comes with its own form fitting lens cap that can be used to install the filter to the lens without touching the filter and smearing the glass. Highly recommended.

                            Good results for bright daytime, ocean-side shooting. Appears to possibly produce minor vignetting at wide-angle settings of zoom lens.

                            I needed a polarizing filter to use on a wide-angle lens and it needed to be slim to avoid vignetting. This is one of the slimmer ones I found, and it's also extremely well-built, with a smoothly rotating front piece, and all at a lower price than competing brands. I first bought one in a 77mm size, and it worked so well I bought this one. Both are excellent products.
