B+W 66-040548 overview

  • 1Description

The B+W 39mm Light Red MRC 090M Filter can be used to increase image contrast when photographing using a film camera system with black-and-white film installed.

This filter's effect corresponds to that of a Wratten 25 filter. Wavelengths of visible light that are apparent as green and blue colors to the human eye are suppressed, while visible light associated with yellow, orange, and red colors are able to more easily pass though the B+W 39mm Light Red MRC 090M Filter and into the lens it is mounted in front of. When photographing with this filter along with black-and-white film, green to blue-colored subjects within a scene are reproduced in very dark shades of grey than if a filter was not used. Simultaneously, yellow to red subjects are rendered in very light shades of grey.

When applied to black-and-white photography, the increased contrast provided by the B+W 39mm Light Red MRC 090M Filter can result in very dark skies with extremely defined clouds. Shades of green among foliage can become strongly differentiated from neighboring shades of yellow, orange, or red, while light skin tones can be rendered as white or near-white. Additionally, this filter can also minimize the presence of haze caused by the bluish cast of daylight.

To prevent internal ghosting and reflections, 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. 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 66-040548 reviews

    39mm Light Red MRC 090M Filter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from durable red filter for B&W photography I'm using this filter to help an otherwise color-blind Leica M Monochrom with its B&W rendition of color, exploiting the capability of a red filter to reduce haze and markedly accentuate clouds, foliage, & architecture. B+W filters consist of high quality glass (why put window glass in front of good glass?) in a brass mount (less likely to bind).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality filter for monochrome I bought this filter for use on the taking lens of my Rolleiflex 3.5F. It does require a Bay 2 to 39mm adapter to be used as such. The filter is dark, needing 5 stops of compensation, but produces excellent, clear high contrast images on black and white film, with attractive darkening of blue skies. Quality, as is typical with B+W filters, is outstanding, both optically and in terms of construction. The MRC coating is resilient and easy to clean.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it's supposed to There's not much to say: it does what it is supposed to do! It is well-constructed, from a very reputable manufacturer of quality filters. I use mine to accentuate blue skies and clouds when shooting 35mm film.
