Key Features
  • 0.9 Solid Neutral Density Filter

The B+W 46mm SC 103 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 your 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 SC 103 Overview

The B+W 46mm SC 103 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.

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 a brass filter ring for durability as well as to prevent jamming.

i used with my leica m9 and my summilux 50 mm to be able to shoot at full aperture in bright sunlight - works great. I also bought another one for my summicron

I use this filter on my Leica lenses when using high-speed film or shooting on very bright days. B+W quality is unmatched for both the brass ring and the glass.

So far so good.

So far so good.. I've only used it once or twice.. obviously 3 stops isn't enough to account for shooting white backgrounds outside which is what I recently did but this definitely helps! I'm really interested in the variable ND filter from them too!

Let me shot my Len wide open

I purchased this filter so I can shot with my Len wide open and still have a high shutter speed in day light. It does that for me

Nice for GH4 aerials

Works well to keep shutter slow enough to not see vibrations in image when very sunny. B+W filters are the only ones I buy and have always been pleased.

question

Can you focus with this filter on camera? And whats the maximum of seconds you can get in daylight with it. Thanks.
Asked by: Jorge C.
My auto-focus works. It's very difficult to manually focus though. Closing the aperture as high as possible I have been able to achieve a full 30 seconds.

question

I have a number of B&W MRC filters (UV's and PL's) but there is such a huge price difference in the B&W ND filters, I'm wondering if the non multi-coated ND would suffice. The coating is supposed to improve the light transmission through the filter but the point of the ND is to suppress light transmission. Why would one want a MRC over a non coated ND filter?
Asked by: Anonymous
reduce incidences of ghosting and lens flare. The coating is also scratch-resistant, and repels both dirt and water. The filters with the MRC will be higher quality. That isn't to say that the non-coated filters aren't good, the MRC filters will simply be better.
