B+W F-Pro overview

  • 1Description

The B+W 62mm F-Pro Kaesemann High Transmission 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.

Kaesemann High Transmission Circular (HTC) polarizing filters are fitted with polarizing foils which provide 99.5% light transmission that are cemented between plano-parallel optical glass. The resulting sandwich is then precision-polished to achieve accurate plano-parallel surfaces. Finally, they are edge-sealed to protect the foil against humidity.

To prevent internal ghosting and reflections, each glass surface includes multiple layers of anti-reflection coating. This Multi-Resistant Coating (MRC) also offers further protection to the filter substrate and helps it to stay clean for longer than with uncoated filters.

B+W filters are constructed from Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. This filter features an F-Pro brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

Helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
Polarizing filters arrange, and filter directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of the light.
Clears up haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
Strongest effect when used at a 90° angle from the sun.
Circular polarizers are useful in combination with digital cameras and auto-focus lenses where a linear polarizer will often disrupt auto exposure and focus features.
Multi-coated to prevent internal ghosting and reflections while providing over 99.5% light transmission.
2 to 2.8x filter factor reduces exposure by 1 to 1.5 stops.
Constructed from Schott glass for optical clarity.
F-Pro brass filter ring helps to prevent jamming and provides additional strength.
Plastic case for storage and transport.

    B+W F-Pro reviews

    62mm F-Pro Kaesemann High Transmission Circular Polarizer MRC Filter is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's perfect Works perfectly as expected. I am replacing a high quality Hoya polarize because the Hoya has an aluminum frame and was consistently difficult tor get off my lens. The B+W has a brass frame and screws off the lens with little effort....every time. It's an excellent tool and not much difference in cost either.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I love the brass rings that they use. I've never had a problem with them jamming up. Can't say that about aluminum. Good quality glass too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from For best results we need best equippment The difference, between shooting WITH this filter and WITHOUT this filter is not like is advertised in pictures, like TOTTALY DIFFERENT color gradient and contracst. The difference is there, but is NOT huge. However, it give a final good tone to footage( I am using on a video camera)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great filter Works great, minimal tinting. Excellent constructions. Its a nice filter. Nice filters aren't cheap. I've bought a lot of CPs and I find this to be similar in quality to the regualr B+W coated CP's. Not sure if its worth it for the extra, but I play it safe with filters

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Polarizer works welll for me I have only used this filter a few times, but I like the thicker brass ring. It goes on easy and quickly. The first few shots have been very good. I'm learning to use the polarizer and have been happy with the results so far.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Polarizer Filter with less light loss Filter provides polarizer effects with less light loss thereby allowing for higher shutter speed at same ISO and aperture. It does seem to be slightly on the warm side of neutral though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great polarizer A circular polarizer that works as advertised. The metal ring is substantial and makes the off/on part easy. Great results using this filter-- highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best is alway best. As always B&W is the best and beautifully built from real ground grass and framed in brass.. The high transmission is great and loses less than 2 stops.
