Product Highlights
  • Helps to Eliminate Reflections and Glare
  • Reduces Haze and Blue Cast in Landscapes
  • Greater Color and Tonal Saturation
  • MRC Multi-Resistant Coating
  • Rugged Brass Filter Ring
  • High Quality Schott Glass

The B+W 62mm Circular Polarizer MRC Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.

A circular polarizer only differs from a linear polarizer in that it contains a quarter wave plane in addition to the linear polarizing filter. The addition of this quarter wave plane is to circularly polarize the linearly polarized light for the use of auto focus and exposure functions. Due to how the light is broken down and filtered with a linear polarizer, auto focus and exposure accuracy become skewed during use. When the light becomes circularly polarized, it permits the use of these functions.

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.

      This is the third polarizer of this brand that I bought. I now have polarizers for each of the lenses I have in my bag. I found that B+W makes a sturdy and high quality filter. I have many others from this brand and they perform well over the long haul. I use it just about every time I shoot outside when the sky is not overcast. I also use it as a neutral density filter to slow down the shutter when I want some motion in the picture.

        I live in the Pacific Northwest where it's wet much of the time. A circular polarizer is an essential tool to eliminate glare in close-up landscapes and when photographing water.

          I used this yesterday at 12 noon and the pictures turned out great. I photographed ducks in a pond with the sun glaring off the water. When I went to edit the photos there was no glare but a nice reflection of the trees in the background.

                              easy to clean and mount...get the very saturated color when correctly use.

                                I trust B+W to deliver quality optics and this doesn't disappoint.

                                  Comments about B+W 62mm Circular Polarizer MRC Filter:

                                  Sometimes filters can be like sox, a necessary but unglamorous piece of photo gear.

                                  I have used a number of B+W polarizers over the years. A recent, larger diameter lens purchased for landscape photography required another polarizing filter. I'm happy with it.
