The B+W 82mm XS-Pro Digital ND Vario MRC-Nano Filter is a solid variable neutral density filter providing an exposure reduction of 1 to 5 stops. The 0.3 to 1.5 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. The degree of density is easily controlled by rotating the front filter ring, helping you to predetermine the additional exposure length required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily. For easier, repeatable control over density settings, the front ring is also visually demarcated with dots that represent different density values.

The Multi-Resistant Coating (MRC) is both an anti-reflection coating as well as a protective surface. It helps to increase light transmission by reducing reflections, scattered light, and ghosting. Additionally, it offers greater protection to the filter substrate and stays cleaner for longer than uncoated filters. The Nano coating associated with XS-Pro filters provides an additional eighth layer over the MRC, resulting in an improved beading effect when in contact with water for greater cleaning efficiency.

B+W filters are constructed from Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. This filter features a thin, oversized mount which helps to reduce the likelihood to vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses. The filter ring is made from brass for durability as well as jamming prevention.

Variable neutral density filter allows you to dial in differing amounts of density scene to scene.
0.3 to 1.5 density filter darkens the image, allowing you to photograph with a longer shutter speed or wider aperture than normally required.
Providing a reduction of 1 to 5 stops, this filter allows you to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.
Offers increased flexibility to use specific ISO settings or ISO films under bright ambient light.
Provides increased exposure flexibility while using cinema or video cameras within a designated film frame rate.
Multi-Resistant Coating offers both protection to the glass and helps to improve light transmission and image quality.
Nano coating promotes an improved beading effect with water for more efficient cleaning.
Oversized and slim mount helps to reduce the likelihood of vignetting with wide-angle lenses.
Thin brass filter ring helps to prevent jamming and provides additional strength.

    82mm XS-Pro Digital ND Vario MRC-Nano Filter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from XS-Pro Digital ND Vario MRC nano Filter Was forced to buy a new ND filter and instead of buying a two and three stop version I decided to go with the ND Vario MRC nano filter by B+W. I mostly use the NDs for water fall photography. Pros: I love the fact that I have to carry only one filter and the simplicity of dialing the desired stops. Cons: I was surprised by the thickness of the filer and that it does NOT have a front thread. It looks like B&W chose to enlarge the outer ring radius (greater than the mounting thread radius) to reduce the chance of vignetting. Because the radius of the outer filter ring is greater than mounting thread it made no sense to add an outer thread. On my 24-70 lens I do not notice any vignetting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Filter - Very Useful This is a really nice filter. It rotates nice it has great image quality. Nothing negative to say about it except that I did use it on a cheap 11-18mm using a small filter adapter and I did get some darkening on the edges stopped down all the way with a crop sensor. I didn't get any lines or X in the image when used with 24-70 2.8 or longer. In the product info, it doesn't make it clear that the outside thread of the filter is a different size than the inside (camera side). The outside thread is 86mm while the camera side is 82. This is purely for function so I see the need. I would recommend purchasing a lens cap to fit it while its on the camera so you have something to protect it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey, but great Haven't had too much use with the filter yet, but right away, I know I'll be pleased. Unlike other brands, they limit the range on the ND, which means you can't rotate the filter past the start and the stop points. This is good because you will never confuse which direction means more light and which means less light. It also means you are less likely to see the dreaded X from the double Polas because it doesn't go passed ND1.5. Only complaint is that it doesn't come with a lens cap and I still haven't figured out what size it is. I'm assuming 86mm, but need to check.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Variable ND Filter I've used the Tiffen version of this and there are two notable differences. One, this filter has far less color shift than the Tiffen. Also, this filter has threading on front side of the filter so you can add a simple sunshade that will spin with the filter. I bought the General Brand sunshade and it works well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect addition to Canon 24-70 f2.8L v2 A polarizer and ND filter up to 5 1/3 stops on one filter!!! Awesome!! Perfect for bokeh during the day or shooting special stuff in the studio. Also great for pulling the blues in the sky. The interior is 86mm so get a cap that snaps inside to protect this filter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Excellent Piece of Kit! I use this for long exposure photography. It is well-built, and has that precise feel of a German product. It isn't as thick as other vari-nd filters and has a rotation limit so you don't get the weird artifacting when the two optics in this filter are rotated.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great so far I've just received mine in the mail and I can confirm that it DOES in fact have front threads, contrary to a previous review. Per the manufacturer's website they've indicated that the filter can be combined with other filters but that this ND should be the last in the chain. They do not specify the size of the front thread however. As one user suspected I seem to think it may be an 86mm as well and I'm interested in ordering a screw hood to attach to the front thread once I determine the exact size.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mind Blowing! This thing is one of the coolest photographic pieces of equipment I own. Buy for your largest lens and get stepping rings for everything else. You get a 5 ND filters in one!
