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

The B+W 52mm 1.8 ND MRC 106M Filter is a solid neutral density filter providing a 6 stop exposure. This 1.8 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.

        I use this product on sunny days for long exposure water shots. This is a pretty dark filter though if you are looking to use it on not super bright days trying a size or 2 lighter.

              Comments about B+W 52mm 1.8 ND MRC 106M Filter:

              Placing one of these filters on the front of a fast lens -- this filter is for a Voigtlander 35 f1.2 Nokton -- will permit shooting in bright sunlight wide open. This produces a faux 3D effect where the focal point is sharp and everything else just fades away. Very nice for portraits and close up work. Not so great for landscapes. B+W filters seem to be made well and screw on and off with little effort.

                Love the construction, quality. I bought it for travel. If you have a fast lens and you want to shoot wide open with it during the day, then this filter is very handy.

                I also used it for landscapes, water shots.

                  Superb quality filter. It allows to me to shoot wide open with flash in the sun. With this filter my camera is almost always at or slightly below the flash sync speed (1/180s). Interestingly, it's the only 6-stop ND filter I could find from any manufacturer.
