      Comments about B+W 77mm MRC 103M Solid Neutral Density 0.9 Filter (3 Stop):

      I do alot of outdoor weddings, as we know the light is often bright. This product allows me to shoot more wide open while still maintaining proper shutter speeds.
      The consistancy of this product makes it a solid performer in all situations when the ambient light is strong.
      I would love if this product had a bit of a deeper thread to allow for filter stacking.

      Great High Quality Filter from B+W!!

      By Chip

      from NC

      Comments about B+W 77mm MRC 103M Solid Neutral Density 0.9 Filter (3 Stop):

      Definitely pay the extra $$$ for MRC filters. Threads easily on and off of my 77mm threaded Canon L lenses. I use it to slow down shutter speeds to photograph waterfalls in NC. I see no sign of a color shift or significant flare. I often combine with a B+W 1.8 ND (6-stop) to get a total 9-stop ND. I have no problems combining them with the exception of some minor vignetting at 24-25mm on a full frame Canon 6D. Combining eliminates the need for a 9-stop ND filterthan getting a separate 9-stop NnnND filter.Definitely pay the extra $$$ to get the MRC versions.

        I'm an amateur photographer and bought this just prior to a trip to Tibet. The build quality and the quality of the glass are great. I had varying degrees of success with it, but that was due to my lack of skills. I can't wait to get out and use it more

          I have many B+W filters and use them regularly. Have never tried another brand, so I can't say they are better or worst. I find that usually you get what you pay for. These are expensive and I have had no issues with unwanted color issues or light flare. They are solid and seem well made. I'm brand loyal and will always own B+W.

                Yes the glass is nice. The coating is nice. But what I love the most is the brass threads that make it easy to put on and off. Hard to imagine buying a filter without brass.

                        This filter is strong, durable and offers great clarity. With the need for filters not being what it once was a ND filter will always have a purpose and B+W makes some of the best.

                          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.

                              I use with manual flash and 2.8 lens in bright sunlight conditions. Works as advertised. Threads are great, allowing it to attach to my lense without binding. I did notice a slight warm cast to the image.

                                You don't need a new camera to take your photography to the next level. All you need are ND filters from B+W. I've been using my "77mm #103 Solid Neutral Density (ND) 0.9 MRC (Multi-Resistant Coating) Filter by B+W" combined with my ND 3.0 MRC filter for a total 13 f stops. The results are a totally surreal look to my photos that would not ever be possible. The performance is above and beyond anything else I've ever tried. Other filters tend to lose their clarity when stacking, but not these ones. All my photos are super crisp.

                                    Quality product. Has a good feel to it, no loose glass, threads on easy. After use on waterfalls in the Smokey Mountains it performed well and seems to leave no color cast.

                                    Comments about B+W 77mm MRC 103M Solid Neutral Density 0.9 Filter (3 Stop):

                                    This is a very sturdy, well built, high quality 3 f-stop ND filter. The filter mount is made out of brass and never sticks to filter mounts. The glass is multicoated, and while it is a bit more tricky to clean it affords excellent clarity and flare resistance. The filter is well calibrated, meaning that you can predictably get correct exposures by metering without the filter, adding 3 EV of exposure and screw the filter in place. The filter gives a very slight yellow cast that can be either pleasing or removed in post.
