B+W 67MM C-Pol MRC

The B+W c-pol filter seems slightly brighter than other less-expensive polarizers but I'd like it if it were even brighter than it is. Because it reduces light by ~2.5 stops and increases contrast it sometimes causes my Nikon D80 to error slightly in auto focusing. But the error is very small and I can easily work around it when I shoot stationary subjects. Construction and finish are much better than with other brands. The B+W metal rings screw onto and off of lenses more smoothly and never ...

The B+W c-pol filter seems slightly brighter than other less-expensive polarizers but I'd like it if it were even brighter than it is.

The B+W metal rings screw onto and off of lenses more smoothly and never get stuck, as has happened to my filters made with anodized aluminum rings. I DON'T screw the filters together too tightly, either!

A must have

I carry a circular polarizer for each of my lenses. It is the most important thing in your bag afterThe camera and lens. Always buy a good one . B+ W is a good one. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because 5 is for perfect but I would give it a 4+.

I purchased this filter to reduce glare and enrich the fall colors of trees along the lake. The results are outstanding.

B+W polarizer

By

from Torrance CA.  -  Photo Enthusiast

Well constructed and high quality glass make this a great accessory. I have two others and find them to be just the thing I need to cut down glare. I travel a lot and have to keep equipment down to a minimum. This is the first accessory I pack after my camera and cards.

Filter to reduce flare

By

from Michigan  -  Photo Enthusiast

Purchased to reduce flare prevalent with some lower cost filters in some shooting cases as well as reduce glare in others. Use this to enhance the blue in the sky for landscape shots.

Questions about this item:

Don H  I have found that some filters don't allow me to fit the lens hood when attached.Is there particular brands that I can be sure the lens hood fits on?
C DAVID H  Unfortunately without knowing what camera you are using, what lens you want to use the filter on and whether it is an OEM lens hood or an aftermarket model it is difficult to answer your question. There are filter systems that feature a housing that holds a removable media - not sure if this is what has caused your interference. The housing is typically larger than the lens. The B+W filter noted here has a 67 mm male thread that mates with a 67 mm female threaded portion of the lens. The thread on the lens dictates the filter size needed and is typically stamped or printed on the lens. Alternately an adapter can be used to step up filter size. The lens hood typically fastens to the outside of the lens. My cameras are Nikon and the lens hoods either clip on or fit with a quarter turn depending on the lens. If the lens is a moderate wide angle there can be issues caused due to the thickness of the filter. Manufacturers such as B+W offer a thin profile filter for these cases. Typically these filters do not have a female thread that might be used to stack a second filter.
