  • A MUST-HAVE ?? Whether you??re indoors or outdoors, the right polarizing filter is a must for every photography equipment. No other filter provides such a simple and fast method for breathtaking pictures through reduced reflections on water and smooth non-metallic surfaces. Enjoy richer colors in landscape photography, outlining clouds, skies, and skylines in perfect clarity.
  • EASY TO USE CAMERA FILTER - The Ksemann polarization filter can easily be screwed onto the filter thread of most lenses. Thanks to its special design, the adjustment ring can then be rotated on the filter without resistance in order to improve your images in the simplest possible way. You see an immediate result through the camera viewfinder, or on the display. Adjust the effect strength as desired.
  • BEST WORKMANSHIP - The High Transmission (HTC) polarization film is set between two precise ground and polished cover glasses. It is particularly neutral in color and of high quality, providing for much sharper and richer images than conventional polarizing filters. The MRC glass has been refined with several wafer-thin layers of coating to ensure high scratch resistance and a dirt- and water-repellent effect due to nanotechnology (lotus effect).
  • TOUGH & SOLID MOUNTS - B+W sockets are absolutely accurate, easy to apply, and easy to adjust as polarizing filters thanks to their precision manufacturing. With an extra narrow XS-PRO mount, vignettes can be ruled out in most cases, even at high wide-angle angles. Due to the internal thread, a conventional lens hood can also be fitted so you can take better pictures.
  • MADE IN GERMANY - Schneider Kreuznach (B + W) ?? We??re proudly your precision mechanics specialists for filters, photography, optics and precision, with more than 100 years of German experience. Schneider products have already been used in NASA's Apollo missions. Thanks to our multi-resistant nano coating lens filter, we??re helping photographers everywhere take clearer, crisper images.

Five Stars One of the best polarizers that I have used in my 32 year photography career. 5Great for fish photos! High quality filter. I bought this filter to take photos of fish in our trout pond. It is amazing for that purpose. The afternoon I received this was full of glare and reflections. Without looking through the camera I couldn t see a fish. But with it on and rotated properly I was able to get great photos. The dark photo on the left was with the filter rotated to allow glare. And on the right with glare minimized. I was able to get amazing photos of the trout feeding. I can t believe I waited this long to have one of these! My Smith sunglasses also allowed me to see these fish and that is what tipped me off that I was missing a lot in my photos. Using this filter is way easier than trying to shoot through my sunglasses. Seems to work well with my Canon 80D autofocus and auto exposure. Schneider no longer supports the counterfeit protection website that links to the box hologram label, but this seems obviously legit from the research I did as to what to look for. 5You get what you pay for and this is #1 I own Hoya and Tiffen and "no-name" filters. This was the first time I sprang for a high-end quality filter. I am using it on a Nikkor 10-20mm zoom wide angle lens and polarizers are notoriously tricky on wide angle lenses, so I went for the best. And I was not disappointed. This is solidly manufactured, has a very sturdy feel, and is optically excellent. No problems. This is my filter brand from now on. 5Changed my photography game First of all I've moved over completely to B+W (mostly) and some Hoya. I'm selling my Tiffen's for cheap on LetGo. The quality difference between higher end filters is noticeable. Everything from the weight, feel, clarity, and picture quality. I was getting too much ghosting at various angles with the Tiffens.Now, regarding a CP filter. I've been shooting behind class or reflective surfaces (like classic cars) much more. I wanted a quality filter for tomorrow's classic car show. As soon as I got this I started shooting with it in bright sunlight and I don't know how I went without every using a CP filter in the past. Maybe that's one of the reasons I never cared for my car pictures in the past. Just like a polarized pair of sunglasses a CP filter ultimately absorbs the reflection. When shooting cars the nice paint on the cars will not all have the same mirror look, you will be able to see the actual color of the paint. While I have not compared Tiffen CP filters to B+W CP filters, I have compared Tiffen UV to B+W and B+W is much better. I didn't want to take any risks and I have no problem paying for a higher quality product. I knocked it down one star for value for money because the price is higher than it needs to be, yet it is the best filter out there so it is what it is. I'm happy. 5Very Good Filter For The Price. I had purchased a lesser expensive filter on Amazon previously. You get what you pay for and had to return it for issues.This lens however was spot on focus wise at farious focal lengths using a Tamron 150-600, G2 from the very first use. The filter came nicely packaged and was very clean. I have threaded an UV filter over this lens. The lens cap and lens hood have no issues fitting with the filters. The filter looks to be built well and threads off and on nicely from the lens.For a not cheap and not super expensive option, you may desire examining this filter. 5Great quality for a reasonable price I bought this for the telephoto lens of my old Nikon D60. I was going on a 3 week road/camping trip to southern Utah and was warned that cheaper CPLs create problems with telephotos (I have a cheaper Promaster CPL on my wide angle that works just fine). This worked great. No issues with threading while putting it on or taking it off. My camera was used and abused but no scratches on the lens. Really makes a difference taking landscape photos of colorful rocks against bright blue skies. I would definitely buy again from B+W. 5High-Quality, Easy to Use Polarizing Filter. Light Loss of 1-1.5 EV. B+W s F-Pro HTC Kaesemann Circular Polarizer MRC is a screw-mount filter available in 20 different sizes to fit mounts from 37-120 mm. The filter ring is brass. I have the 77mm size; its outside dimension is 8 cm in diameter. Polarizers are used in photography to eliminate reflections on glass or water and to saturate colors, particularly blue skies, also by eliminating reflections. Polarizers block certain orientations of polarized light. You need to rotate them in order to block the orientation that will eliminate glare. Circular, as opposed to linear, polarizers are necessary on modern SLRs and DSLRs that have internal meters and partially reflecting mirrors, in order to avoid metering errors. Circular polarizers have two elements: On the front is a linear polarizer; behind it is a quarter wave plate that circularly polarizes the light that passes through it, so that the correct amount of light reaches your camera s meter.Perhaps I should define B+W s string of acronyms. This is an F-Pro HTC KSM CPOL MRC filter. F-Pro refers to the type of mount. This mount is of standard thickness. B+W says that it can be used on a 35mm lens (63 angle of view) and most 28mm lenses (75 angle of view) with 35mm film or a full-frame digital sensor without vignetting. If your lens is very wide angle, you may want the XS-Pro mount, which is thinner, or the Extra-Wide mount, which extends the polarizer beyond the size of the mount. B+W claims that the XS-Pro will not vignette with most 17 mm lenses.HTC stands for High Transmission Circular, which means more light gets through than non-HTC filters. KSM stands for Kaesemann (or K semann). Kaesemann was an independent company that patented a process to seal the edges of two layers of glass so that moisture could not get inside. Schneider, which owns B+W, purchased Kaesemann in 1989. They use that process in their circular polarizers. When a filter is referred to as Kaesemann , it also means that its glass has maximum color neutrality and outstanding sharpness. So it is high quality glass.CPOL means Circular Polarizer. MRC means Multi-Resistant Coating. Filters that have MRC reflect less incident light (about 0.5%) than single-coated filters (about 2%), and they repel dirt and water more efficiently, making them easier to keep clean. Single coated filters have one layer of coating on each side of the filter. MRC filters have 8 layers of coating on each side of the filter, the outer of which repels dust and water. The MRC NANO coating on some of B+W s filters (not this one) repels dust and water even more efficiently. I think that covers the acronyms.I was curious to compare this polarizer to my Nikon circular polarizer (now discontinued), because B+W claims that its HTC filters cause 1-1.5 stops of light loss as opposed to up to 3 stops with standard polarizers. B+W s Standard F-Pro Mount polarizers are described as causing 2.3-2.8 stops of light loss. That s a lot! In testing this F-Pro HTC KSM CPOL MRC filter against my Nikon polarizer, I found no difference in light loss. I tested it in removing reflections from glass and in deepening blue skies and fall foliage. With ISO set to 400, the difference between minimum and maximum blocking was 1 EV. The polarizer being attached to the lens causes a little more than 0.5 EV light loss. So total light loss is about 1.5 EV with the filter used to maximum effect. The B+W works very well, and I prefer it to my Nikon for most applications, because the Nikon is extra-wide so tends to bang into things.Attached images: (1) Light reflected by car windows at different angles. Rotating the polarizer to different positions eliminates reflections from the front or side windows. (2) Fall foliage and blue sky. The top photo uses the polarizer to maximum effect. The bottom photo is without any polarizing filter. 5Great quality but a tiny loss of sharpness I love this circular polarizer on my Sigma 105mm Art f1.4. However, I have noticed that there is a slight loss of sharpness when using this. I am okay with the trade-off since you will have to compare the pictures side by side to tell the difference. 5Sturdy, well made, acts as a 1-stop ND filter. Recommended. I've been trying these circular polarizers out. To be honest I don't see much difference between circular and stationary as far a image quality is concerned. However, this particular model results in only a 1-stop loss of light and acts as a reduced ND filter. For these reasons, I do recommend using this polarizer filter for landscape shooting. Also, these are well made and sturdy. 4Great quality, great price. No scratches after two weeks in Utah without a lens cap! Put this on a Canon 750D and used it for a two month trip through the sandy desert southwest of Utah, Arizona, and California. Held up wonderfully, and greatly enhanced pictures of the red rocks and blue skies. Also took the brunt of the abuse from the sand - did not scratch at all, despite me losing my lens cap for two weeks. 5
