Key Features
  • 64x Filter Factor, 6-Stop
  • Darkens Entire Image
  • Allows Reduced Shutter Speed
  • Allows Wider Aperture
The B+W 58mm MRC 106M ND 1.8 Filter is a neutral density filter with a 64x filter factor that provides a 6-stop exposure reduction. Its 1.8 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 106M Overview

The B+W 58mm MRC 106M ND 1.8 Filter is a neutral density filter with a 64x filter factor that provides a 6-stop exposure reduction. Its 1.8 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.

Pricey but exudes quality

I've bought this for the Zeiss Normal 50mm f/1.4 ZE Planar T* Manual Focus Lens for Canon EOS Cameras http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/583975-REG/Zeiss_1677_817_Normal_50mm_f_1_4_ZE.html I plan to use it for landscape/outdoor shooting, both video(Blackmagic Cinema Camera, Pocket Cinema with Speedbooster T) and still-frame photography(Canon 5D MkI). Only used in indoor setting so far for video(see screenshot). It comes in a plastic flip-open holder that is lined with foam. It jiggles around in there a bit but not in a way that it could get rattled enough in transport to be damaged. It is compatible with the 58mm UV filter also sold here(I screwed the UV filter on first, then the ND filter on top of the UV filter): http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/763729-REG/Zeiss_1856_322_58mm_T_Ultraviolet_UV.html It cuts down a *lot* of light. I attached a screenshot that illustrates the expected reduction. The RAW DNG shots were taken with a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, aforementioned Zeiss lens at f1.4, ISO400 and processed by Adobe Photoshop CS4. In my limited usage I can say that the output of the filter is very even and consistent. It's a lot of $$$ but I have no regrets making this purchase.

This is very close to 6 stops / 64X darkening and has no color cast. The filter threads aren't as smooth but the image quality is excellent.

Great for video on GH5

Very nice ND filter, and I don’t notice any significant color shifts as some have reported. I have a GH5 and needed a ND for shooting video outside on a sunny day at low apertures for shallow DoF. I use this on my Canon 50mm f1.4 that attaches to the GH5 via a Metabones T Smart. At 24p, 1/48 shutter, and 200 ISO, the 6 stop cut gets me right in the ballpark for a good exposure at very low apertures for reasonably good shallow DoF.

Awesome Filter!

question

Is this filter too dark to focus / compose with the filter already mounted?
Asked by: Dave T.
It depends of course on the amount of ambient lighting in your shot. My work flow is to focus first, shoot to check focus, exposure, and composition. You really need to see the image properly expose before adding the filter. Then I shoot a few images with various shutter speeds with the filter on. Eventually you will become intuitive about your exposure times.

question

Is this filter fit with fujinon 35mm lense?
Asked by: Anonymous
There are several Fujinon 35mm lenses listed here on B&H and none of them seem to have a 43mm filter size. However, it could simply be that your lens isn't for sale here. Without more information on the lens this question cannot be answered. Can you provide more information about exactly which model of 35mm Fujinon lens you have?

question

Will this filter work on a wide angle lens such that there is no vignetting or blocked portions on the image?
Asked by: June S.
We use the 52mm as a drop-in for a 200-400 f4 Nikon lens. No problem there.

Anyone know if this would vignette on a 16mm on full frame? I primarily shoot a Nikon 16-35 on a D850.
Asked by: Marshall
I use it for a 16-55mm lens on Fuji X-H1. APS-C format, not full frame. No vignetting detected with that lens, which is 24-83mm full-frame equivalent.

question

Is this filter stackable? And what does the 106M mean in the name?
Asked by: Sara D.
106M is just the manufacturer's catalog number - I think the 'M' stands for multicoated.It also has markings1.8 - optical density value6 BL - stop increase in exposure64X - filter factor - needs needs 64X more exposure than without filterIt is stackable, depending on focal length of lens there might be vignetting. Worse with wider angle lenses.

question

Is the MRC worth the additional investment? I do have the 10 Stop MRC and 1 single coated 3 stop both are great.
Asked by: TERRY B.
Hi Terry,MRC is great because it reduces glare from every angles. I feel more comfortable using MRC. Hope it helps.
