Hard to Go Wrong with a Good Filter

By

from Upland, CA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

For the review B&W refers to film and B+W refers to the filter maker. Confusing, I know. Sorry. For a long time I shot B&W (Neopan 400) without filters. I was always in too much of a hurry and worried more about getting the shot in the field than filters. Especially since, for the most part, my images were scanned and could be adjusted in post-production. But as my skills improved and I needed less time for composing shots, I wanted to do more to get it right in the field. This filter makes for awesome B&W shots in not only the traditional golden hours but also mid-day. It is stronger than a strictly yellow filter and I find the amount of contrast between sky and cloud very pleasing. I keep it on my lenses from just past first light to just before it goes dark. In the early/late hours it makes for superbly stark contrast between buildings, sky, and other features. I am told red filters will do even more contrast and sky darkening. I am rather excited to try it next. B+W makes, arguably, the best filters on the planet. The optics of this single-coated filter are amazing. Very clear and very resilient to build-up of dust and other particles. The filter mounts firmly to the lens and the knurled grip makes for a very easy twisting on and off. I shoot a lot with older Canon FD lenses which are all 52mm so moving between whatever I'm shooting is simple. The filter is well-made and I have no doubt it will last a long time. I haven't noticed and vignetting due to filter-ring thickness even on a 24mm lens. Filter factor is listed as 4 but I haven't noticed a need for that much correction. I may have to move a full-stop, at most. Not something to worry about with TTL metering anyway but if you need a different Tv/Av you'll have to remember to correct. Very happy with this filter. Will order more later for the other lenses and will probably pick up a red one for the dramatic effects as well.
