B+W 55mm MRC 103M ND 0.9 Filter (3-Stop)
Key Features
  • 8x Filter Factor, 3-Stop
  • Darkens Entire Image
  • Allows Reduced Shutter Speed
  • Allows Wider Aperture
The B+W 55mm 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 55mm 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.

Will this work as a drop-in filter (into the lens hood) for a Leica M 21mm f1.4 Summilux lens? The lens instructions refer to a Series VIII filter.

The B+W 82mm 0.9 ND MRC 103M Filter will not be compatible as a drop-in filter for a Leica M 21mm f/1.4 Summilux lens. Only Leica E82 filters can be used on this lens, with the use of the E82 Filter Adapter: http://bhpho.to/Snj23r

If you are using this particular drop-in filter holder, then any standard 52mm screw-in filter will work. Canon - Drop-In Filter Holder for 52mm Screw-In FiltersB&H # CAFHS52 ? Mfr # 2612A001

question

Hi!i would love to know if can this filter be used as a drop-in filter for a Canon FD 500mm f/4.5 L?I have this lens but I really wanted to know before buying if the regular drop-in filter that the lens has can be replaced with this one? Is it thin enough? Many thanks!Chris.
Asked by: Anonymous
That lens had filters made by Canon that are specific and so the one you found will not fit.

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
Using a body like the 1DXII I would say no problem. If using a body with a lesser focusing system I would not know.

Asked by: Alejandro B.
The ND filter is not a heavy one. I cant answer if you may use it as a balancing ring because I've never used one for drone purposes.

Hi Ben, I have no idea about this question. It fits my Canon lenses and is a great filter. Steve
