This 52mm Dark Red MRC 091M Filter from B+W is used to increase contrast and tonal separation in black and white photography. It enhances clouds while making skies and foliage appear darker, creating dramatic land and skyscapes. Distant objects will be rendered more clearly because the filter cuts through haze and fog. It has a filter factor of 8, requiring exposures to be increased by 3 stops.

Its Schott Glass construction uses Multi-Resistant Coating (MRC) technology to reduce reflections and ghosting; protect from scratches; and repel dirt and water. The F-Pro Mount ring has front threads to allow another filter to be threaded on top. B+W has also made the F-Pro Mount thinner so it will not cause vignetting on lenses as wide as 24mm. The ring is made from brass, which is a softer metal that prevents the ring from binding on the front of the lens.

    B+W 66-045949 reviews

    52mm Dark Red MRC 091M Filter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from highest quality I shoot only black and white film, most of the time with a red filter. I have tried other brands, but the B&W seems to give the best tonal separations and the most boost in the highlights. The mounting ring is more sturdy than most others I have tried which makes it easier to screw on and off of your lens. If you like shooting clouds, get one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from high quality product I've always thought it wise to spend a little extra for a great piece of glass, and this is no exception. Great quality glass = great pictures. The dark red filter makes for beautiful, rich black skies with clouds that really pop. Definitely would recommend.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Dramatic Option I just started using this filter, but haven't developed photos yet. This is a more expensive filter than I usually have bought, but the glass and anti-refection quality look very good. I had been using a #25 red filter for many years and like the dramatic effect of dark skies and water on black and white images. Like the 25, this filter need 3 extra stops of exposure. I needed the 52mm diameter to match with all of my lenses including on a Super8 camera I bought at a yard sale. I am looking forward to trying the filter on Tri-X film.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well No problems with flare so far. Works well for skys. Not as dramatic as I was expecting, but I suppose that would be more of a trade of as far as light loss is concerned. Worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product Used to increase contrast of the sky. Especially useful with a circular polarizer. No issues.
