Product Description

Product Description

Polarizing filters are amongst the most important filters in photography, both analogue & digital.They can be rotated in the mount,allowing the visible regulation of bluish grey veils of light which appear in the sky

The second beneficial effect of polarizing filters is the reduction of reflections on non -metallic surfaces i.e water,glass etc. Objects behind these surfaces are made clearly visible

Using a B+W polarizing filter is a fascinating and effective way to enhance images at source,without the hassle of post production editing

I bought this one for my Nikon D5100. I was between this one, a Sigma, Hoya HD and a cheaper Hoya/Hama.

I thought about it a lot as it is my first filter, but finally decided to buy the B+W and oh it is awesome! It's steel, heavy, fits perfectly my lens, as soon as you open the little box and actually see the product you will understand that it's worth every cent! I've seen plastic filters in a shop, they seemed to be ok but I can tell you this is very very different. You feel it is a quality product. I know I will have this one for years...

I took a picture to test it: the saturation, the colors, are just perfect! The colors are darker but my photo is as bright as the one I took without the filter. Hard to imagine something better. But on the other hand I didn't try other filters so I cannot compare the saturation/color quality with the cheaper ones.
I recommend the B+W filter.

About delivery: I placed my order yesterday and received my package today, I chose the FREE delivery option and I do not live in England. I received the item even before the predicted date (3 to 10 business days)!! Very satisfied :) Thank you!

the B + W 52mm Circular Polarizer Filter With Multi Resistant Coating is a great if a little expensive product for creating a bluer sky's or cutting out reflections on water on bright sunny days.

Excellent 4 Jun 2007
By Jesse R. Hunter - Published on Amazon.com
I've owned 5 different B+W MRC filters and all have been excellent. This filter is no exception. The polarizing capacity is very strong with this filter and it does an excellent job of reducing glare, reducing blue polarized light in the sky, reducing reflection, etc. Build quality is very high and the level of rotating friction feels just right.

The MRC designation is your cue that this filter will not produce ghost images when used on digital SLRs due to an anti-reflectivity coating put on both surfaces of the glass. Hence the large increase in price when the MRC designation is present.

How to make the sky REALLY blue. 2 April 2006
By Larry K - Published on Amazon.com
Ever wondered how some pictures get that really dark blue sky in them? It's really as easy screwing on a MRC Polarizer filter, and while you're at it you might as well use the B+W.

Polarizer filters increase the saturation as seen by the camera which helps to make the deep colors you see in photo books. Additionally, a Polarizer filter will remove haze from outdoor shots making them sharper AND will cut reflection from water, windows, and foliage - something you can't do yourself afterwards with Photoshop.

Keep in mind that using a filter like this will decrease your light by two stops and that you have to rotate the filter every time you move to ensure you're getting the right effect. Also, you have to use a filter like this only under the right conditions. Most of the time you won't need it but when you do it will make your picture A LOT better.

Since you're attaching a filter to the end of your lens you're introducing the possibility of degrading the final image. While you can use a B+W (or a Heliopan) filter with any lens BEWARE of using the cheap filters you find at your local camera store. If you're taking pictures that are important to you it is absolutely worth the extra money to get a good filter for your lens.

"The" filter for Digital Color Photography 23 Dec 2009
By Paul M. Provencher - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
There are a number of things you can do to modify a digital image using digital image editing programs. Lots of special effects may easily be added after the image has been made. But polarizing filters are almost magical. You see, they cut reflections and glare, and provide images with more rich colors, and for everything except metal, reduced glare and reflection. These are things that can be difficult or impossible to do, no matter how good you are with a digital image editing program.

Yes, the filter is costly. Magic never comes cheaply. In fact, the filter is made to rotate once installed so there are extra moving parts not found on most filters. Then there is the high-quality coating that helps with flare caused by the filter. There's a cost for this too. But when all is said and done, it's worth every last penny of the cost for the results you can get.

The circular polarizer is necessary for single-lens-reflex (SLR) cameras that use auto-focus and metering systems because many of these cameras' systems would be adversely affected by linear polarizing filters. So if you have a recent, auto-focus, through-the-lens metering camera, you probably should be using a circular polarizing filter - check your camera manual if you are not sure.

This in my experience is the most useful filter available and worth every penny. Unlike the Skylight or UV filters sold because "you need to protect your lens" or "cut UV-haze". Just remember that todays modern lenses have very hard glass, hard lens coatings, and that almost no UV rays pass through glass and today's multi-coated lenses. Unlike the polarizing filter, the Skylight and UV filters are a waste of your money unless you are truly shooting in a very hostile environment. Save the money you would have spent on these profit makers for the camera store and buy a filter that will actually make an immediate difference in your photography - a polarizing filter!

An excellent CPL filter 4 April 2009
By Craig Dickson - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have circular polarizers by a few other manufacturers (Sigma, Hoya, and one that has no name on it that came with a used lens I bought), and of the lot, I like the B+W the best. Its optical quality is excellent (one takes this for granted with B+W): no visible distortion, with good multi-coating to reduce flare. It is also wonderfully well constructed. It screws into place on my lens very smoothly. The rotating ring is damped a bit more than the ones on my other polarizers, requiring a little more effort to turn -- not so much as to be difficult or annoying, but enough to give it the feeling of a very solid, precision-made instrument that won't drift out of position by itself.

B+W filters are not cheap, but they're the best.

An Exceptional Filter 14 Sep 2007
By E - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this filter after owning a number of other CL Polarizing filters. When I took this filter out of the packaging, I could tell it was exceptionally well-made. The glass is clean and the case is metal. I will not buy another brand of filter anymore.
