The B+W 39mm #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.

          I use this filter for portraits of females and children with blue eyes. I love the POP!

          B+W has been my filter of choice for well over 20 years. I believe they set the bar, for all other threaded filters.

              Comments about B+W 39mm #8 Yellow (022) MRC Filter:

              I'm using this filter to help an otherwise color-blind Leica M Monochrom with its B&W rendition of color, exploiting the capability of a yellow filter to reduce haze, differentiate clouds from sky, & improve skin rendition. B+W filters consist of high quality glass (why put window glass in front of good glass?) in a brass mount (less likely to bind).

                I use this most of the time outdoors when shooting black and white film. I ocassionally use an orange filter instead. Protects my lenses and gives a little extra contrast.

                Comments about B+W 39mm #8 Yellow (022) MRC Filter:

                This filter is well-made from a manufacturer with an excellent reputation. I use it to accentuate skies etc with B&W film. Multicoated so it should hold up well to frequent use.
