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 58mm 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.

            Works as expected. Maybe a little pricey? I'm not sure, but it clearly allows long exposures even in daylight. Comes with a rather large, but nice and secure case.

              Comments about B+W 58mm 1.8 ND MRC 106M Filter:

              B+W has been my favourite brand for filters for the past few years, and I have eight or ten of their filters in my kit.This neutral density filter does exactly what it is meant to do - block six stops of light and allowing for long exposures to smooth out water and clouds.The filter also has excellent build quality, with a precision-engineered brass filter ring and a multi-coated finish to help protect the glass, eliminate flat and allow for easier cleaning.The colour-cast imparted by this filter is minimal, and in most cases is not even noticeable.The filter is not perfect, however, as it tends to reduce sharpness significantly.A minor quibble is the fact that the ring, while thin, is not as thin as some other rings on the market. This can contribute to vignetting on ultrawide-angle lenses. The brass ring does have one advantage over the aluminium rings used by most other brands in that it rarely sticks to other filters or to the front of a lens.I suspect that there are better-performing six-stop filters on the market. I would suggest that potential purchasers check out reviews for the Hoya ProND series.
