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 77mm 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.

1.8 ND filter darkens the image, allowing you to photograph with a longer shutter speed or wider aperture than normally required.
Providing a 6 stop exposure reduction, this filter allows you to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.
Because of its higher transmission in the red beyond 660 nm, this filter brings a slightly warm tone to color photographs. If this effect is undesirable, a B+W UV-/IR-Blocking Filter 486 in front of the neutral density filter (not behind it) remedies that situation.
Multi-Resistant Coating offers both protection to the glass and helps to improve light transmission and image quality.

      Waterfalls in bright daylight

      By Jules

      from Hawaii

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about B+W 77mm 1.8 ND MRC 106M Filter:

      I mostly use this for waterfalls in bright daylight. Allows me to shoot wide open and shoot an exposure for about 6-8 seconds. Only downside is you will have to occasionally set your shot up before screwing this on.

                  I use this filter for landscape photography. The build quality is fantastic from the threads to the glass. When placing it on my Canon "L" series lenses you can't tell that it's there when looking at the pictures.

                    As most, I use this to shoot wide open with a slower shutter - great for blur - and this filter is absolute quality! You know it just feeling the filter as you screw it on.

                    B+W are my absolute favorite filters, many choose Tiffen, I have in the past too, but I keep coming back to B+W! Pristine surfaces and outstanding quality!

                          Some gear you want to or expect it to have a drama factor. For example, I want to be seduced by the controls and feel of my camera body. But other types of gear I need to work seamlessly, no seducing, no drama, no nothing. Well, this filter is the best type of no drama. The threads are solid and tight so it screws on perfectly. And once it's on it has minimal and easily correctable color shift while giving a true 6 stop density. In short, it does exactly what it's supposed to do and does nothing else. In short, perfect.

                              Tested product vs a variable polarizer ND filter. Variable, promaster, product worked up to 3 stops, but then became very in homogenous when tested with white paper. B+w product was very homogeneous and functioned well. Appears very well made.

                                imho, B&W are the premier brand of filters - brass threads, thin mounts to minimize vignetting, flatness and all the rest. the ND6 is a specialty filter, and won't be used much - but when it is the right filter, there are no substitutes.

                                  The product quality to top-notch. It's light, thin, the brass rings make it easy to equip, and the glass couldn't be nicer.

                                  It's pricey, but it's worth the extra coin.

                                  This thing is a beauty. It's light, strong, clear, the brass rings make it easy to equip, and the glass quality is top notch. It's expensive but worth the extra coin.

                                    I have only used this a few times for portraits in order to allow me to shoot wide open and light my subject with flash. It worked well. I also plan to use it for landscapes.

                                        Must have if you want to blur action, cloud movement, waterfalls, etc. B+W is always my 1st filter choice.

                                          I generally don't use filters except to produce a look that I can't otherwise get. When I do need a filter to get a desired look I turn to B&W for their high quality optics. Highly recommended.
