More Than Great — Essential

By ab

Comments about B+W 77mm MRC 103M Solid Neutral Density 0.9 Filter (3 Stop):

Excellent 3-stop ND filter. No discernible color shifts; if any, certainly nothing so dramatic as cannot be both effectively and efficiently addressed in post. Great for shooting at wide apertures in bright situations. I very much love shallow depth of field; thus, for me, this 3-stop ND is essential.

A must for high-speed lenses on sunny days.

Comments about B+W 77mm MRC 103M Solid Neutral Density 0.9 Filter (3 Stop):

If you own high-speed lenses that are marked f2 or faster, this is a must have for shooting large apertures during the daytime. Even at f/2.8, you may find yourself hitting 1/5000s or 1/8000s without an ND filter. This filter lowers your shutter speed 3-stops without any noticeable color shifts or loss in image quality. If you're looking to shoot large apertures for video (e.g. 24fps at 1/50s), you may want to look into the 106M 6-stop version as well. Whether you shoot video or stills, I highly recommend using XUME adapters for easy removable and placement.

Excellent ND filter for the outdoor/landscape photographer

By Christopher

Verified Buyer

Comments about B+W 77mm MRC 103M Solid Neutral Density 0.9 Filter (3 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.

      Comments about B+W 77mm MRC 103M Solid Neutral Density 0.9 Filter (3 Stop):

      I do alot of outdoor weddings, as we know the light is often bright. This product allows me to shoot more wide open while still maintaining proper shutter speeds.
      The consistancy of this product makes it a solid performer in all situations when the ambient light is strong.
      I would love if this product had a bit of a deeper thread to allow for filter stacking.

      Great High Quality Filter from B+W!!

      By Chip

      from NC

      Comments about B+W 77mm MRC 103M Solid Neutral Density 0.9 Filter (3 Stop):

      Definitely pay the extra $$$ for MRC filters. Threads easily on and off of my 77mm threaded Canon L lenses. I use it to slow down shutter speeds to photograph waterfalls in NC. I see no sign of a color shift or significant flare. I often combine with a B+W 1.8 ND (6-stop) to get a total 9-stop ND. I have no problems combining them with the exception of some minor vignetting at 24-25mm on a full frame Canon 6D. Combining eliminates the need for a 9-stop ND filterthan getting a separate 9-stop NnnND filter.Definitely pay the extra $$$ to get the MRC versions.

        I'm an amateur photographer and bought this just prior to a trip to Tibet. The build quality and the quality of the glass are great. I had varying degrees of success with it, but that was due to my lack of skills. I can't wait to get out and use it more

          I have many B+W filters and use them regularly. Have never tried another brand, so I can't say they are better or worst. I find that usually you get what you pay for. These are expensive and I have had no issues with unwanted color issues or light flare. They are solid and seem well made. I'm brand loyal and will always own B+W.

                Yes the glass is nice. The coating is nice. But what I love the most is the brass threads that make it easy to put on and off. Hard to imagine buying a filter without brass.

                              I use with manual flash and 2.8 lens in bright sunlight conditions. Works as advertised. Threads are great, allowing it to attach to my lense without binding. I did notice a slight warm cast to the image.
