The B+W 58mm #16 Yellow-Orange (040) MRC Filter is a basic contrast filter, primarily for use with black and white film. This orange filter noticeably darkens skies, helps to cut through haze, and improves overall contrast. When compared to the yellow #8 filter, the #16 creates a greater separation between clouds and sky and further lightens yellows and reds within the scene.

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.

      Comments about B+W 58mm #16 Yellow-Orange (040) MRC Filter:

      Everything was already said about the importance of filters in B&W photography. This filter respects the tradition of good optical quality and takes advantage of the now widespread coating techniques. The frame has a good grip and seems to be tough. I just got confused with the description: this is rather an Orange filter, maybe Light Orange. Yellow-Orange is a terrible definition.
