The B+W Premium Line – developed by filter specialists for demanding, no-compromise photographers!
The super-slim XS-Pro Digital Filter Holder is an ideal tool for the DSLR photographer because, thanks to its extremely low profile, it can be used without vignetting with all typical wide-angle zoom lenses with focal lengths of 12 mm (APS-C) and 18 mm (full frame DSLR). In keeping with the market trend, the Premium Line also incorporates a number of filter diameters for mirrorless camera systems.
The 007 Clear filter acts as the ultimate lens protector. Its sole purpose is to keep dirt, sand, and moisture off the front lens element. Due to hydrophobic coating the adhesion tendency of dirt particles and water droplets is reduced. The advantages are: extremely easy cleaning and maximum reduction of reflections.
The classic amongst the B+W protection filters blocks the annoying UV component of daylight. Invisible UV light is more intense in pure sea air and in high mountain regions and can cause blurring and a blueish cast.
For this high-end polarizing filter the foil pieces are selected individually for maximum color neutrality. Following cementing between high-grade optical glass, additional grinding and polishing takes place. This guarantees outstanding sharpness even with very bright, apochromatic lenses. The new generation of Käsemann High Transmission (HTC) polarizing filters is fitted with a new polarizing foil, which has higher translucency (transmission), yet still provides outstanding effectiveness. The filter extension factor is only 2 to 3, equivalent to approx. 1 to 1.5 f-stops.
Thanks to its variable density, the first B+W Vario ND filter can be adjusted exactly to meet individual requirements. To this end, it comes with a continuous setting function with which the photographer can determine the required density reduction between +1 and +5 f-stops. Sometimes large apertures are needed in bright ambient light in order to separate a model optically from the background. Using several minutes of exposure time, architectural photographers can make people passing through the work space “invisible”.
