B+W 66-015530 overview

  • 1Description

The B+W 77mm 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 77mm 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 77mm 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.

    B+W 66-015530 reviews

    77mm Orange MRC 040M Filter is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Difficult to use The threads to attach this filter to a lens are terrible. It's an absolute pain to use.Initially, I thought, So, it's a hassle to put on the lens, no big deal. How often will you put the filter on and remove it? That thinking was a mistake on my part. I had to remove and reattach the filter periodically to clean dust that was somehow getting between the filter and my lens, so the hassle is important. I regret wasting my time giving this filter a try.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Invaluable! Something like this will improve photography results far more so than new lenses or cameras, opens up the world of daytime shooting which is usually flat and boring, great quality as it should be on my beloved RZ67.
