Technical Details


Product Description

This UV Filter blocks the invisible UV component of light from the sky, which can cause blur and to which many color films react with a blue cast. These filters should be called UV-Blocking Filters, because there are filters for technical applications that pass UV radiation and block all the other wavelengths. Nevertheless, the short term "UV Filter" has become established among photographers.

UV Filters are ideal for photography in high altitudes (in the mountains), by the sea and in regions with very clean air. The pictures gain brilliance and disturbing blue casts are avoided. Because the glass is colorless, color rendition is not altered, aside from the elimination of the unwanted blue cast, and no increase in exposure is required. That makes a UV Filter very suitable as protection of the front element of the taking lens against dust, flying sand, sea water spray and the like, and it can be kept on the lens at all times. It is recommended for analog color and black-and-white as well as digital photography.

The MRC coating is first and foremost a broadband anti-reflection coating. This means that its reflection-reducing effect, which is thus also a transmission-increasing effect, i.e. one which suppresses scattered light and ghost images and transmits more light, has a broadband action over the full spectrum. In contrast, the (almost always blue) single-layer coating only has a high effect in the medium wavelength range around yellow and yellow-green where the eye is most sensitive to light, while its effect is greatly reduced toward the blue-violet and purple-red end regions of the visible spectrum.
With the MRC coating, this blue, violet and red to deep-red light cannot produce any contrast-reducing scattered light, spotty reflections or ghost images.

B+W speaks for it's self. this is a great brand can last a long time. I have read many reviews in regards to what kind of filter to buy and who's is better. Well, it came down to this one and Hoya. there were many other great brands however cost about 250 plus bux. I have two canon L series lens 24-105mm and 17-40mm. However when you decide to get one of these filters be sure to get the slim for your ultra wide lens. Good luck.

The thin ring causes no vignetting on a 17mm wide angle Canon lens for full frame. As usual with B&W, the build quality is great.
