Fantastic

B+W are the best filters, in my experience. I love this 2 stop (.6) ND filter. It is great for day photo.

Great product when using by itself. However, when stacking with B+W 77mm Circular Polarizer MRC Filter, it is very difficult to take them apart. Everytime, I put it on together, it is almost impossible to take them apart. I only hand lightly tight them.

A must for any landscape/outdoor photographer

Comments about B+W 77mm MRC 102M Solid Neutral Density 0.6 Filter (2 Stop):

Does the job, and is easy to clean (the biggest reason I like B+W filters). Hoya, Tiffen and cheap filters are harder to clean. Cheap filters also create odd flares, etc. I've never had a problem with B+W filters (have a CPL as well that I'm happy with from B+W). Would strongly recommend this filter for any landscape/outdoor photographer if you want to give your photos some drama (particularly with clouds, water/waterfalls, or anything you want to have the "silky" look). They are bit more expensive, but worth every penny, because they use brass rings, and high-quality materials in their construction. You get what you pay for. However, I also read that sometimes a CPL can be used in place of a 1- or 2-stop ND filter, but I don't like to substitute different filters. Get the right tool for the job and you will like your results better.

Quality Filter / Helps When Shooting On Bright Sunny Days

By George

Comments about B+W 77mm MRC 102M Solid Neutral Density 0.6 Filter (2 Stop):

I live in a coastal community of Florida and have experienced problems when shooting on bright sunny days. I usually have to shoot at much faster shutter speeds to avoid affects of the sun. The solid neutral density filter did the trick and does not appear to have any affect on the image quality, color or clarity of the photos. The filter has quality construction and threads easily onto the lens. Very happy with my purchase.

Comments about B+W 77mm MRC 102M Solid Neutral Density 0.6 Filter (2 Stop):

I use my camera primarily for family photos, but also will capture some landscape and people shots. Just getting started with exploring ND filters (with or without flash). Using this on my 80-200 nikkor lens I was able to get some interesting shots at a lakeside sunset. 

For subjects that are farther away (beyond your flash) this is the max darkness you could find usable. I look forward to experimenting with flash, as well as, stronger stops for landscapes.

        Comments about B+W 77mm MRC 102M Solid Neutral Density 0.6 Filter (2 Stop):

        Being a video guy, I really wasn't thinking about ND because my big cameras have it included. I just worked on a job with my GH4 and the lighting was really bright. I took a chance and ordered the .6 and the .3 and ended up using both together and It worked out fine. The video looks great, but, I haven't the in depth study of the lens characteristics that some have done. Although, the reviews I've read say that this is a good choice.

            Great quality (as I've come to expect from B+W)! I use this on a Canon 24-105 f/4L and a Canon 70-200 f/2.8L lens, and I'm able to shoot at lower f-stops than I would normally. Makes it a lot easier to shoot outdoors in bright sunlight AND also achieve a moderate to really nice shallow DoF (depending on the brightness and lens).The brass rings are awesome and rotate very smoothly (and securely) to my lenses. Love the quality and feel of these lens filters!

                  Bought the canon 85mm 1.2 and could not use it at 1.2 outside on bright days. I have a few other fast primes but they are 77mm so I also bought the 72mm step up adapter so I could use the 77mm ND filter on more lenses and now I can use the 85mm lens outside on sunny days at f1.2 so it works well for me. On bright sunny days I could use the .9 ND filter but this being my first ND filter I wasn't sure exactly sure how many stops I needed.

                    Deciding between several brands, so contacted B&h sales by phone to discuss my needs and budget against the wide variety of products. They worked with me and talked about real examples and usage. Nice to have very knowledgable people there - even though this was not a big budget purchase. The ND filter works perfectly, meeting my needs just as we discussed. Very happy with this ND and the B&H sales staff!!
