B+W 82mm MRC Basic Circular Polarizing Filter

BH #BWCPB82 • MFR #66-1100755
B+W 82mm MRC Basic Circular Polarizing Filter
Key Features
  • Circular Polarizer Filter
  • For Use with Autofocus Cameras
  • 2 to 2.8x Filter Factor, +1 to 1.5 Stops
  • Helps Eliminate Reflections and Glare
This 82mm MRC Basic Circular Polarizing Filter from B+W reduces reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. Light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing it to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges 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. Objects and people behind surfaces such as shop windows and car windshields become visible again, a fascinating image enhancement without the need for image processing in post production.

B+W MRC Basic filters are equipped with the exclusive Multi-Resistant Coating (MRC) nano premium coating technology. This high-quality broadband coating is applied on both sides and enhances the optical imaging properties, allowing uniform and increased transmittance across the entire light spectrum to be achieved, with minimal physically induced remaining reflection. The nano all-round protection on the filter glass also ensures increased scratch resistance as well as extremely fast and easy cleaning for a long filter life.

Difference between this polarizer and the high transmission version?
Asked by: R
B+W High-Transmission MRC-Nano Master Circular Polarizer Filter has the nano coating that beads water and makes it easier to clean and also protects the filter against scratches. The basic filter does not have that. The high transmission filter also allows more light to reach the camera than the basic version. The high transmission polarizer filter is also equipped with a grease-free rotating device for smoother rotation.

Are B+W polarizing filters water resistant? Can I use them in the surf? Will salt water damage them?
Asked by: Dirk
The B+W MRC Basic CPL filter does not have a tremendous amount of water-resistance to them. With anything, we recommend rinsing off any salt/sand/sediments off your items and devices if doused in saltwater. For a more water-repellent filter, we'd recommend the B+W Master CPL which has enhanced water-beading nano-coatings. https://bhpho.to/3ynwlZc
