B+W 66-044842 overview

  • 1Description

The B+W 67mm Circular Polarizer MRC Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.

A circular polarizer only differs from a linear polarizer in that it contains a quarter wave plane in addition to the linear polarizing filter. The addition of this quarter wave plane is to circularly polarize the linearly polarized light for the use of auto focus and exposure functions. Due to how the light is broken down and filtered with a linear polarizer, auto focus and exposure accuracy become skewed during use. When the light becomes circularly polarized, it permits the use of these functions.

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.

B+W filters are constructed from high quality Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. They feature a brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

Clears up haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
Strongest effect when used at a 90° from the sun.
Circular polarizers are ideal for use with digital cameras and autofocus lenses where a linear polarizer will often disrupt auto exposure and focus features.
Multi-Resistant Coating offers both protection to the glass and helps to improve light transmission and image quality.
Constructed from high quality Schott glass for optical clarity.
Brass filter ring helps to prevent jamming and provides additional strength.

    B+W 66-044842 reviews

    67mm Circular Polarizer MRC Filter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 95.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a difference quality makes! Good grief! What was I thinking? For the last twenty years, the polarizing filters I've used have come from less-expensive manufacturers (ie, cheaper filters)... they degraded image quality with inferior glass, they got stuck on the front of the lens because of the cheaper material the ring was made from, etc. No more of that - the brass ring on this B+W filter makes a noticeable difference right away, and the Schott glass is probably better than the glass in my actual lens (and it ain't a cheap lens, either)! Don't put cheap filters in front of expensive lenses - spend a few extra dollars up front and you will see it pay off in the quality of your images. I'll never again buy any filters other than B+W.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from B+W still maintains their quality Years ago I always bought B+W. In recent years I've been using Marumi which I think are just as good optically but normally less expensive. In this case the B+W was actually less expensive than the comparable Marumi. I bought this form my Zeiss Batis 85mm. It was like seeing an old friend when I opened the box and took out the filter. It has a very solid feel. I know one would think mechanical quality isn't an issue with a filter but there are moving parts and alignment to consider. I've had both Hoya and Tiffen PL fall apart on me. My only reason for not giving this a 5 is that I want to see how it holds up over time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic B+W Classic B+W quality. The thing I really appreciate about these multi-coated filters is the resistance to flare. Sure, with a telephoto with a good hood this is not as often an issue as with a wide-angle, but it is worth it over a cheaper filter IMO. Honestly I think in most situations it is difficult to tell a (single) less expensive filter from an expensive one from image quality, but after suffering flare issues with cheap filters I'm a B+W multi-coated filter fan. If you have quality lenses it is worth getting a quality filter (echoed by many on forums and reviews).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice CPL! I've bought my share of budget CPL's in the past, and this was a step up for me as far as quality/price are concerned. I am quite impressed with how much of an improvement I've experienced in the (visually obvious in viewfinder} degree of polarization and photo quality outcomes. The filter also feels more solidly constructed; the rotation of the lens element is very smooth with exactly the right amount of resistance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product This filter is used in almost all facets of outdoor still photography. It serves to cut glare and enhance colors. It can turn a sky deep blue, instead of a blown out white. A polarizer is one filter that simply cannot be duplicated in post. It must be used on the lens when the picture is taken. You lose aboout 1-1/2 stops of light with the filter, but with modern cameras, it's easy to bump the ISO to compensate. The filter can be difficult to use when the lens hood is used. It is also pretty much useless indoors. It seems easier to clean than many other filters I own.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best polarizer out there Short of the Kaesemann version, this is probably the best polarizer you can get on the consumer market. Highly recommended both for optical quality and for operational details -- it resists dust well and the brass ring is very rugged. As expected, you need to be careful when cleaning, otherwise you will get scratches from debris pressed against the glass with a wiper. Blower brush is recommended for all but the nastiest stuff that gets on it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can't go wrong with this flter I specialize in sunsets. Red and green flares are a constant curse. This polarizing filter eliminates about 95% of them. Such a relief! Also crysyalizes colors so the blues become so vivid and true. all colors become crisp and solid, eliminating the faded bleached out look.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality but required cleaning The build quality of this filter is superb. The function of the filter is precise and exactly what you would expect from a polarizing filter. I did have to clean this filter when I received it however. Like other reviewers have stated there was an oily film on the filter surface that required a rather thorough cleaning. This was not a big deal for me as I would have cleaned it anyways before putting into use. I still give this 5 stars because once cleaned this filter is perfect.
