The B+W 46mm #8 Yellow (022) MRC Filter is a basic contrast filter, primarily for use with black and white film. This medium yellow filter slightly darkens skies, helps to cut through haze, and improves overall contrast. It is the most common contrast filter for black and white photography, producing an accurate tonal range and compensating for the blue sensitivity of panchromatic film. There is a 2x filter factor with this filter, requiring an increase of 1 stop for normal exposure.

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 Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. They feature a brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

    Comments about B+W 46mm #8 Yellow (022) MRC Filter:

    I bought this filter for use with the Leica Monochrom. It's not very often you have a chance to attach colored filters to a lens, so I was pretty excited to test it out. It does a great job for skin tones and the build is everything you'd expect from B+W. I highly recommend it!

      Comments about B+W 46mm #8 Yellow (022) MRC Filter:

      Made with the consistently high quality I've grown to expect from B+W. Their filters are spotless and ready to use straight out of the box, whereas some other manufacturers' filters require 10 minutes of cleaning before putting them into service. Also, the filters fit loosely in their well-designed protective cases, thereby making them fast and easy to deploy in the field, even when wearing gloves. Other manufacturers' filters sometimes fit so tightly in their cases that you wish you had packed surgical tools with which to extract them.
