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.

A Must Have Filter for Outdoor

Really made my fall color pictures pop. Waterfalls look so much better with the surrounding reflections controlled. I got the size that fits my biggest lens and use reducing rings for the others.

New model from B + W

A recent addition to my lenses prompted the adding of a CPL filter. After using several other brands for years, I tried the B + W Kaesemann filters and loved them. I could easily see a difference over other brands, even some of supposed equal quality. This model has been discontinued so I had to take what was now offered. I contemplated the Master series CPL but thought the price too high so went with the alternate Base model which seemed pretty mush identical except for fewer coating levels. It works fine but I do not like it as much as the discontinued Kaesemann. There is a new feature on the new series, an "improved" adjusting ring. I do not like this at all. The filter sticks way out now and I never had any issues with the skinnier discontinued style. Additionally, this filter comes wrapped inside a cheap cloth pouch vs. the previous hard plastic case. This is a definite cheapening of the product. For the prices charged, this is inappropriate. The Master version apparently comes with the same cheap cloth bag. Conclusion: the filter works but it is no longer the. Premium product it previously was.
