B+W 66-1067372 overview

  • 1Description

The B+W 77mm MRC 702M Soft-Edge Graduated Neutral Density 0.6 Filter helps to darken specific areas of an image, such as bright skies, while allowing for a normal, unaffected exposure in the other regions of the image. The filter is densest at the edge and tapers to clear by the middle, with a soft-edged line of transition between the dense and clear areas. A neutral density filter with a soft-edged line of transition is particularly useful for images that do not have a strongly defined transition between the sky and the foreground. The design of this filter incorporates a rotating mount to allow for precise positioning of the gradation along the horizon line. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image and the density provides up to a 2-stop reduction in light from entering the lens.

To prevent internal ghosting and reflections while maximizing light transmission, 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.

This B+W filter is constructed from optical glass for clarity and color fidelity. An F-Pro brass filter ring is provided for durability as well as jamming prevention.

    B+W 66-1067372 reviews

    77mm MRC 702M Soft-Edge Graduated Neutral Density 0.6 Filter (2-Stop) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not What I Wanted, But Well Made I thought this was a true full-gradient, with a soft edge. It is not, and I have since returned it. If this were what I intended to buy, it would be perfect. B+W makes high quality glass, and I trust it enough to put it in front of my Nikon AF-S 24mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.4 and 24-70 f/2.8. If you want a mild edge on a gradient filter, this is definitely the filter you'll want. .6 is a great level for standard skies and sunsets. If you're dealing with ice and snow, .6 won't be enough, but anything in the regular range this would work perfectly for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Terrific B+W Filter Over the years, I seem to have replaced all of my lesser filters with B+W equivalents, and have always been very happy with the upgrade. This graduated ND filter is no exception; the brass ring always screws on easily, never gets stuck to the lens, rotates oh-so-smoothly, and the filter cleans exceptionally well with inexpensive pre-soaked optical wipes. There are those who will tell you that you need a rectangular 4x6 ND filter kit with holder and adapter ring for greater flexibility and adjustment. My response is that I like to travel light and compact, prefer the optical quality of a multi-coated glass (not resin) filter, and can easily do vertical adjustments in post-processing. Helpful hints: This filter appears to achieve its neutral colour balance with a slivered surface that reflects 75% of the light reaching it, as opposed to a cheap resin filter that absorbs 75% of the light. Because it reflects so much light, it's important to make sure it's always the outermost filter in the stack if you're using an additional filter(s), thus avoiding flare and reflections in the filter stack. I often use this grad-ND with a polarizer to further deepen the sky, so the polarizer goes on first with the grad-ND on top of it. I've also found that a short screw-in metal lens hood with same-size threads at both ends (I use the Heliopan) is extremely useful in such a stacked configuration. This allows you to use the lens hood to turn the polarizer ring for the desired effect, and then turn the grad-ND ring (at the far end of the hood) to align to the horizon. This is a lot easier than trying to adjust two thin rotating filters stacked on top of each other.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Sunrise and Sunset Photos I use this filter most often for landscape compositions around the time of sunrise or sunset. It reduces the contrast in the photo and which reduces the amount of work required in Lightroom to finalize the photograph. It can also be very helpful around waterfalls. I have used this product for some time; but when it was misplaced I when back to this same filter as a replacement.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from B+W Hard Edge Graduated Neutral Density 702 MRC 0.6 Filter My first us of this filter was in Rocky Mountain NP. B+W quality and price, but as they say you get what you pay for. Movement of the graduated portion is very smooth and the hard edge, while there truly just fades to clear about 2/3rds down the filter. In practice, the edge would likely only be noticeable against a consistent background which is not where you would want to use this filter; I would use a standard or vario ND. Although the filter is only 3-4 mm thick, I used this on a tilt-shift lens (also new) and discovered that I could not tilt as far without some vignetting; this should be expected in this particular application, but I had not really thought about it. First shots I took were without the filter, then added the filter and had to slightly recompose the shot. The filter definitely makes a noticeable difference in the saturation of the blue in the sky and brought out detail that otherwise was washed out in the other shots. For my personal style in shooting landscapes in bright light, I would likely use my Vario ND in conjunction with this filter to achieve the best balance of lighting. This would also allow me to reduce aperture to increase depth of field which in conjunction with the tilt-shift would allow an excellent depth of field in even the harshest of lighting conditions. All in all, I would say this filter is a must have in the toolbox.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from B+W - THE BEST Its well made, sturdy, the threads fit perfectly to my 77mm lens and does what a .6 Filter should do. I also like the fact that you can rotate it to match the horizon. Smooth as silk.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice product but maybe wrong for me This was the first ND filter I have purchased for the 16-35mm F/4 lens on a 5d Mark 4. It certainly is very well made, easy to mount and works well but the amount of gradation irt provides doesn't seem very significant. I am using it almost exclusively for landscapes and to be able to expose for the sky. However I am not seeing much of an improvement in the pic. I think I should have probably gone with a variable filter to be able to provide more of a difference in exposure when needed. This is a user problem not the product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to my gear. I like using this filter when I have the camera on a tripod and am able to get the results I want most of the time. I don't want to carry around a Cokin system so this works for me. The construction is good and the field of coverage is good for most of what I do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great filter. This is a great filter and it works exactly as it should It threads on to my lens smoothly, provides a wonderful graduated density that is perfect balancing out exposure variances. I would highly recommend this filter and all filters by B+W.
