    I had the first opportunity to use this at a wedding when a last-minute family picture needed to happen under direct sunlight. I quickly set up my flash units for fill flash, installed this filter and was able to get the shutter speed below sync speed without closing the aperture too much (there were trees and a field in the background which I wanted to keep out of focus). The pictures turned out great! Used with a Canon 5D body & 24-70 F2.8L lens.

    Excellent product.

        Simply a great filter that does the job. B+W seem to have the best, most cleanable coatings.

        B+W Quality

        Comments about B+W 77mm 0.6 ND 102 Filter:

        I know that whenever I purchase a B+W filter I am paying a little more for uncompromising quality. This lens was exactly what I expected from, in my opinion, the best filter manufacturer out there. Highly recommended; look no further than B+W for filters.

          Comments about B+W 77mm 0.6 ND 102 Filter:

          I used this filter for strobist portrait photography. A 2 stop ND filter is great for this purpose as it doesn't dimmed the viewfinder all that much and doesn't really interfere with the AF. However, I can definitely notice the different in quality between a filtered and non filtered optic. I don't really use filter all that much so I can't compare but at the end of the day, I think it's a good value for the money.

                  Comments about B+W 77mm 0.6 ND 102 Filter:

                  Buying 77mm ND filters is not for the faint of heart! I mainly shoot landscapes and waterfalls, so the ND filter is a must for me.

                  I was surprised to find this filter for the price. I've owned other B+W filters and never had an issue with any of them. It's sturdy, high performing glass, and I would buy it again.

                  Though I will probably upgrade to a more expensive slim mount piece of glass in the future, this one is perfect for the time being.

                    Comments about B+W 77mm 0.6 ND 102 Filter:

                    Was useful in blocking out light. Mostly for me used in video mode on my DSLR camera. The .6 ND filter allows me to expose a scene at a lower f-stop and a lower shutter speed. It bothers me to see DSLR footage (even my own) that was shot with a fast shutter. That shallow depth of field look is so trendy. But to get truly beautiful cinematic shots, you have to show with a normal shutter AND a shallow depth of field. An ND filter does that for you.

                    The 0.6 ND allowed me to shoot a scene with ISO 100, shutter 60, and f2.5. Without the filter I had to bring the iris to f5.0.

                        This B+W basic 2-stop ND has no fancy coating whatsoever, but works, really. My G lenses have every coating they need, so I went for the basic filters. But because it's a B+W, it has top quality glass and durable ring.

I appreciated it having threads on the front, to allow for stacking filters. An ND filter is a must have for every lens in your bag for anyone doing Landscape Photography. This one is a great tool for the money, which makes it a great value.

                            This is a great filter for making video look less "electronic" and more film-like. I use it when shooting outdoors in bright light, and I often use it with a polarizing filter. In addition to improving the image, it acts as a kind of ND filter, allowing me to shoot at a lower shutter speed, which is great for timelapses.

                                  I bought this to replace a lower-end filter, I greatly prefer this one. The other caused somewhat softer images, bit the case with this B+W filter.

                                    Worth every penny compared to the cheaper alternatives. Sharpness is dead on and works great.

                                        I bought this to use for midday shots when I needed to soften the look of Fall Creek Falls, and I liked being able to couple it with the 0.3 ND filter to get the desired look. Otherwise, it provides great light control without affecting the color.

                                        I use this filter for my canon standard lenses to balance my outdoor shuttertime while using a flash. I also use it to increase my shuttertime to motion blur subjects. It´s a good gadget to have. You might get a similar effect with a polarizing filter, but the light setting might change, if you are flashing from a certain angle.
