B+W 55mm MRC UV Filter

These filters block the invisible UV component of daylight, which can cause blur and to which many colour films react with a blue cast. These 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 removed. Because the glass is colourless, colour rendition is not changed, other than he elimination of the unwanted blue cast. No increase in exposure is required. This 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 analogue colour and black and white as well as digital photography.
UV Filters are also available in Digi Pro mounts, which are the same as standard mounts, but finished in an attractive silver chrome finish, to perfectly match your silver lens.

All these filters are supplied with MRC Multi-Resistant Coating unless otherwise specified.

The B+W filter manufacturing company was founded in Berlin in 1947 by business partners Biermann and Weber. In 1985 the merger with the Jos. Schneider Optical Works in Bad Kreuznach expanded the B+W line of products with optical filters for science and technology. It also generated significant progress in multi-layer coating systems (MC). As a result, B+W became the first manufacturer of filters in the world to offer the innovative water- and dirt repelling MRC multi-layer coating process, which, in addition to its reflection-preventing qualities is also regarded as being especially scratch-resistant.

In Bad Kreuznach, the most modern fabrication machines produce highly precise filters in an impressive variety of types and diameters. Quality controls are integrated at all key stages of the production process, and a final inspection of every individual filter ensures the renowned high B+W quality standard. At B+W, our commitment to our guarantee and service are taken seriously. Continuous improvements and new developments enable users to achieve their best possible images. By comparison, a cheap filter can reduce the imaging performance of a high-quality lens quite dramatically! Therefore, consider the quality of a filter as seriously as you would consider the choice of your lenses - look for the B+W brand because the quality of the image depends upon what is in front of the lens!
