B+W F-Pro overview

  • 1Description

The B+W 82mm 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

    82mm F-Pro Kaesemann High Transmission Circular Polarizer MRC Filter is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Polarizer filter around I have been using past polarizer filters for many years in my photography experience and nothing comes close to this B+W filter. There is no Blueing when I use these filters, they are very realistic. I shoot RAW files for my Landscape images and use a full frame Canon 5D Mark III. all my lenses are L series and now they get the best filters around! Louis Ruth Photography.com

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would recommend this product and brand to everyone. Everything manufactured by B&W has always lived up to their reputation for extreemly high quality and the 82mm F-Pro Kaesemann High Transmission Circular Polarizer MRC filter is no exception. The mounting threads are precision cut for easy mounting and the polarizer rotation is very smooth with just enough friction to hold the setting without drifting when the camera is moved around.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid This works as well as any polarizer I've used. Very solid. Works well with 16-35 2.8 ii Canon lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I will buy this for my other lenses Excellent Polarizer. Easy to thread, stable, and stays clean.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Filter I pre-ordered the new Nikkor 24-77 mm f2.8E ED VR. I needed a whole new set of filters for the 82 mm diameter of this lens. Always use B+W filters. Great construction, superb glass.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey but worth it. B+W coated filters are all I'd put in front a lens. Really don't that many filters nowadays in a digital era but you still can't beat a high quality polarizer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy again. I bought the B&W filter becasue the brass ring is less likely to be difficult to remove due to galling, more common with aluminum.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality I use this polarizer with a Sony a7s on a G Master 24-70 lens and it's just great.
