The B+W 52mm MRC 103M ND 0.9 Filter is a neutral density filter with a 8x filter factor that provides a 3-stop exposure reduction. Its 0.9 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. By increasing the aperture or slowing your exposure time, you can control depth of field and convey movement more easily. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image and are ideal for pairing with other filters.

B+W 103M Overview

The B+W 52mm MRC 103M ND 0.9 Filter is a neutral density filter with a 8x filter factor that provides a 3-stop exposure reduction. Its 0.9 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. By increasing the aperture or slowing your exposure time, you can control depth of field and convey movement more easily. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image and are ideal for pairing with other filters.

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.

Hello. I am looking to reduce my f-stop during ...

Hello. I am looking to reduce my f-stop during panning shots. I do Motorsport photography and typically pan anywhere from 1/30th to 1/320. In that range, I’ve been up to f-18. I use the 300 f2.8 with both TC’s with exceptional results. My concern/question is, will this negatively affect or impact the AF system? Even though I already get a nice motion blur with panning techniques, I’d like to reduce the f-stop further to add some additional blurring in the out of focus areas. Any help here would be appreciated. Thanks.
Asked by: Ken
This should not effect the focusing system much. If you were using anything 6-stop or more, the you may see varying results, but because it is only a 3-stop, you would be more than fine.

question

Is this filter stackable? And what does the 103M mean in the name?
Asked by: Sara D.
Dear Sara, the filter is stackable. The front end is threaded and can accept another filter (or a snap-in cap). 103 (ND.9) means 3 stops compensation, just as 101 (ND.3) means 1 stop and 102 (ND.6) means 2 stops compensation.
