    Description:

    The B+W 49mm Kaesemann High Transmission Circular Polarizer MRC-Nano Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off

    The B+W 49mm Kaesemann High Transmission Circular Polarizer MRC-Nano Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.A circular polarizer only differs from a linear polarizer in that it contains a quarter wave plane in addition to the linear polarizing filter. The addition of this quarter wave plane is to circularly polarize the linearly polarized light for the use of auto focus and exposure functions. Due to how the light is broken down and filtered with a linear polarizer, auto focus and exposure accuracy become skewed during use. When the light becomes circularly polarized, it permits the use of these functions.Kaesemann High Transmission Circular (HTC) polarizing filters are fitted with polarizing foils which provide 99.5% light transmission that are cemented between plano-parallel optical glass. The resulting sandwich is then precision-polished to achieve accurate plano-parallel surfaces. Finally, they are edge-sealed to protect the foil against humidity.To prevent internal ghosting and reflections, each glass surface includes multiple layers of anti-reflection coating. This Multi-Resistant Coating (MRC) also offers further protection to the filter substrate and helps it to stay clean for longer than with uncoated filters.

  • The real B+W filter is awesome, this review is because the one I received was not authentic
    By Amazon Customer on 13 December 2018

    Note - I have ordered this item on Amazon in the past with no issues and the filter itself is terrific. Amazon initially prevented me from posting this review even though it fully complies with their terms... Am trying again.
    The filter that I received, from what turned out to be a third-party seller (fulfilled by Amazon), was a counterfeit. I use this filter on multiple lenses and was able to compare - the fake one has white/silver text and in a different font than the yellow/gold on the original, is significantly lighter, and turns much less smoothly than the original. If you search online, there are articles of fake B+W products being sold, and it seems some are indeed showing up when ordering via Amazon.

  • I got fake one. Be aware.
    By Shabti on 04 October 2018

    I got fake one. It was lucky to find out. If I didnt read reviews before I purchase I might be fooled. Be aware. Also the box looks very cheap and fake made in China. No authentication sealing, not in the outer box or inner case. I'm very disappointed. I'm returning it back and reorder one more time hoping they send me genuine B+W this time.

  • WARNING: There's a good chance you'll end up getting a fake knockoff filter. Beware.
    By Jaxon on 22 April 2019

    Prior to buying this filter, I saw a few reviews on here saying they received a knockoff filter with poor performance. "No problem," I thought, and decided to buy used from a reputable seller on here, hoping to avoid the problem. But alas, I didn't. I somehow still ended up with a fake B+W filter.

    I got around to doing some tests (see the attached image) and you can see what I mean. My Tiffen polarizing filter performs great, blocking out the computer screens as expected. But when I put on the knockoff B+W filter, I see a HUGE drop in exposure. I didn't calculate exactly, but it seems like it darkens the image by 4-5 stops. And when I raised the exposure to match my Tiffen filter, I saw a very noticeable blue/purple color shift, which is most evident in the bottom left corner of the frame (where a daylight balanced LED is shining through the glass table).

    HOW TO TELL IF YOU'VE RECEIVED A KNOCKOFF FILTER:
    -The filter significantly lowers your exposure and/or adds an ugly color shift to your image (this is the most surefire way to determine if you have a fake)
    -The filter is lightweight (the real one is supposed to be brass, which is heavier than a typical cheap filter)
    -The filter has white printing on the front ring (the B&H product listing shows this filter with gold text, so I believe the real filter has gold text instead of white)

    Search for "B+W fake filter" online and you'll find an article on The-Digital-Picture which has more info on this. It says "In general, photographs of boxes and the text on the filter will not confirm a legitimate B+W product" so the most surefire way to determine if you have a fake filter is to test it on your camera like I did.

    My recommendation is to buy this filter from a reputable source like B&H until Amazon can get it together and remove the fake listings/sellers from this product page. Or you can get it here and risk having to return it. Just be cautious!

  • great product!!
    By grippla kukalapi on 27 July 2016

    have been having issues find a usable cpl for my sony16-35 fe f4 on my sony a7rII
    been through tiffen premium, super dull color and strange yellowish hue. Hoya hrt, combo cpl/uv that gave super heavy vignetting and dull colors, finally found the B+W 72mm XS-Pro HTC Kaesemann that is amazing!! fantastic clarity, beautiful color representation, great glare cut and no vignetting what so ever!!! not cheap but when you have a great camera and a fantastic lens and you put a crappy filter on it you make the whole thing a crappy combo. your images are never better than the glass you use!

  • Thin, Light, Works Great
    By TJ McCarthy on 02 November 2015

    Before giving my impressions of this filter, I’d first like to decode the product description. First, “XS-Pro” means this is a very slim filter, though it still has threads so you can screw another filter onto it. “Kaesemann” is a filter manufactured by the Kaesemann company, now owned by B+W. They are designed to be more resistant to damage from humidity. “Circular” is a special type of polarizer, distinguished from “linear”; circular is the type you need to use on DSLRs. “Multi-Resistant Nano Coating” provides a layer of protection against dust and water.

    I installed this filter on my Nikon 50mm lens and headed outside. Note the standard lens cap fits over the filter just fine. For landscape photography, it’s easy to use – on a clear, sunny day, just frame up your shot, then turn the outer ring until the blue of the sky darkens. Turn another 90 degrees, and the effect disappears. This doesn’t mean you should just leave it on all the time, because a polarizing filter costs you 1-2 stops. The filter is also useful for removing light reflections, either through windows or water. Just remember to *always* turn the outer ring as if you were screwing the filter onto your lens, otherwise you may accidentally unscrew the filter and drop it.

    Overall, this worked exactly as I would expect. In my landscape shots, the blue sky darkened appreciably, and fall foliage colours became more distinct. I’ve included sample photos to show the difference. Because it was so bright out, I didn’t miss the stop of light at all. This is a very high quality optic, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a polarizing filter.
