B+W 65-1066159 overview

  • 1Description

The B+W 77mm SC 106 Solid Neutral Density 1.8 Filter is an ND 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 slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to 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 one layer of anti-reflection coating. 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 65-1066159 reviews

    77mm SC 106 Solid Neutral Density 1.8 Filter (6 Stop) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 59.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Right: Blur Water & Outdoor Video I use this for landscape shots with moving water and also for outdoor video where the goal is to shoot with a wide aperture. I find that this works well for blurring water, better, in my opinion, than the 1.0 ND filters. In open shade, I can usually get around an 8 second or longer exposure at f13. Longer when the sun is below the horizon or behind a mountain. For video, it is also just about right, getting me out of the f22 or f16 realm and down to 5.6 or so for a more pleasing, shallower DOF. I don't detect any color cast or any other aberration. Nice glass.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality!! High quality ND filter from B+W!! Fits perfectly and with ease on my 77mm threaded Canon L lenses. I use it for slowing down shutter speeds to photograph waterfalls in NC. I see no sign of a color shift or significant flare when using it. I often combine with a B+W 0.9 ND (3-stop) to get a total 9-stop ND. I have no problems combining them with the exception of some minor vignetting at 24-25mm on a full frame Canon 6D. It is cheaper than getting a separate 9-stop ND filter.Definitely pay the extra $$$ to get the MRC versions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely pleased I had been using lighter ND filters up to this point. While they helped, they just weren't strong enough for the photographs I wanted to take. I wanted to avoid stopping down to f/22 as well as wanting longer exposures.I wasn't sure if this filter would be too dark to work with. During a trip to Washington this month (June) I found that my entry level body (Canon T2i) metered just fine. Of course the glass is too dark for the viewfinder to be of any use, but I could generally see well enough with Live View to compose and focus. You won't get the clearest view, but it's workable and much easier than composing/focusing and then screwing the filter on.I have yet to experiment with this filter in bright sunlight or at the beach, but I would expect that it's dark enough to be quite useful in those situations.I'm extremely pleased with the new opportunities that this filter gives me while shooting my preferred overcast forest scenes. I'm even considering purchasing another so that I won't need to switch this one between two lenses.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Creativity Realized through the ND I have several ND filters, 4, 6 and 10 stops, all solid. It is very rare that my daytime shoots are done without an ND. The negatives about these is the potential for color casting, generally seen as a purplish streak through the image. I can only assume the light must be just right or (just wrong) for this to happen. I assume the light bounces around between the front element and filter. Generally, I do not use a lens hood when shooting with an ND filter. Shooting directly into the setting sun, an ND combined with bracketing will give amazing results. I am very pleased with the quality and performance of the B+W ND.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Creates a warm cast I bought this filter so that I could used long shutter speeds to blur motions of water in my landscapes. I tested the filter this weekend and I did not seem to loose any sharpness in my static subjects but it blurred the water. The only problem is that it has a warm cast. The cast can be easily removed in post processing. I am going to do some further testing and see is setting my camera on automatic white balance solves the problem. In any case it can be corrected in post processing.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A whole new world I was told that a ND filter which allowed for several stops would truly enhance my landscape pictures so I purchased a 10 stop filter (also B+W) but was having issues because you can't see through the viewfinder because things are so dark. I then purchased this 6 stop filter and can at times still not see ttl all the time but with removing the filter and setting up the shot, framing and focusing, and adjusting the aperature and shutter speed, including the bulb setting and stopwatch, the pictures are amazing. Waterfalls especially, but t even good clouds are enhanced. I use both and am practicing with them to get the best exposures, and the results are very much to my liking. Without the having to or remove the filter framing and focusing, I would have gone 5 star.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfectly suited for first purchase of a ND filter I bought the 77mm size because it would fit on two of my Nikon lenses: an 85mm and a 20mm Wide Angle. While the density rating listed on the box seems a little confusing (ND 1.8 / 64x), calling it a 6-Stop difference is more understandable. With this filter I was able to take some cool daytime photos of waterfalls by reducing the exposure times between 5 and 10 seconds long (using small aperatures and low ISO). I could still see through the lens (although it looked quite dark), and even obtain autofocus. But once your camera is on a tripod, it's probably better to pre-focus first, and then screw on the filter. You could of course get a darker ND filter, or 'stack' filters to force longer exposures, but the downside of that is you're more likely to catch movement of other objects in the scene that you don't want to, which makes it look like you don't know how to focus. So this particular filter value seems just right. The optical quality is good, and I couldn't see any issues in final product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from B+W Quality as expected I've had good experiences with B+W filters and highly recommend them. The brass rings means easy on and easy off. I've struggled with other brands getting stuck on lenses, but never a B+W. Handy to have several different ND options for shooting timelapse when consistent & long Shutter speeds are required (waterfalls, waves, ect.)
