B+W 66-015523 overview

  • 1Description

The B+W 52mm Orange MRC 040M Filter can be used to increase image contrast when photographing using a film camera system with black-and-white film installed.

This filter's effect corresponds to that of a Wratten 16 filter. Wavelengths of visible light that are apparent as green, blue, and violet colors to the human eye are suppressed, while visible light associated with yellow, orange, and red colors are able to more easily pass though the B+W 52mm Orange MRC 040M Filter and into the lens it is mounted in front of. When photographing with this filter along with black-and-white film, green, blue, and violet-colored subjects within a scene are reproduced in dark shades of grey than if a filter was not used. Simultaneously, yellow, orange, and red subjects are rendered in light shades of grey.

When applied to black-and-white photography, the increased contrast provided by the B+W 52mm Orange MRC 040M Filter can result in dark skies with very defined clouds. Shades of green among foliage can be much more differentiated relative to skin tones, while the appearance of freckles and skin blemishes is reduced. Additionally, this filter can also minimize the presence of haze caused by the bluish cast of daylight.

To prevent internal ghosting and reflections, each glass surface includes eight layers of anti-reflection coating. This Multi-Resistant Coating (MRC) also offers greater 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. This filter features an F-Pro brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

    52mm Orange MRC 040M Filter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect monochrome filter? Note: I have owned and used the 52mm (lens front) and 39mm (drop-in) versions of this filter. I have worked with all sorts of filters in the yellow-red/contrast dimension of colors on black and white film. Of course, I always want to have the perfect general contrast filter for use in a variety of conditions, as the first one I would choose for walking around, and this B+W orange filter fits the bill for my tastes. This color perfectly for 80% of the situations I encounter. The other 20% are dramatic sky shots (about 5%, red is best) and low light night shots (about 15%, yellow is best, and brighter at night). For portraiture, yellow is usually good for Caucasians (unless they are freckly red-heads), and orange is perfect for everyone else (Asian, Hispanic, African, etc.). Since I usually photograph Asians, I prefer this orange filter. It is perfect, and as a bonus it dampens blemishes very nicely. You may also wonder if the MRC coating is worth the extra cost. If you plan on shooting a lot, and you don't want to tip-toe around cleaning your filter but would rather just wipe it off from time to time, then this is worth the extra cost. The surface is extremely scratch resistant, I have treated mine fairly poorly at times when cleaning while out shooting, but you would never know it from the filter itself. I am impressed by its robustness! The brass ring is also superb. I will pass these filters down to my children and grandchildren, and they will still be in perfect condition.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Contrast Filter This is a phenomenal filter. Like all other B+W filters, the Schott glass and brass construction is rugged and optically perfect. The filter ring is thin enough that I have not noticed any vignetting on any of the wide angle lenses that I've used it with. If orange is the contrast filter that you need for your work, you can't go wrong with this filter in any size.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect! I was looking for an amber filter by this manufacturer .... My specific intended use was for 35mm black and white film photography. This filter is the precise specs and durability I was seeking, and gives me the sharpness of image with buildings and scenery I desired.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent My go to filter for black and white film. Optics are sterling and it's effortless to keep the lens pristine and smudge free. Metal and glass construction. The MC red filter will be my next purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results Gives more subtle results than the red filter I also use. I took a few shots in Manhattan around the corner from the B&H shop and got great pictures with the sky against the scrapers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Filter for Architecture This is really good glass. It has the right amount of contrast between the sky and urban landscapes for me.
