Highly efficient standard circular polarizing filter for all cameras with beam splitters in the light paths of their TTL exposure meter and with autofocus lenses. Circular polarization has the same pictorial effect as linear polarization, but allows for proper exposure metering and/or autofocus distance settings.
B+W Polarizers increase color saturation and reduce reflections. The neutral gray color and plane parallel polarizer material guarantee optimal image results. High-quality optical glass ensures excellent pictorial quality. The filter factor varies according to how the filter is positioned in relation to the sun. Filter factor is between 2.3 and 2.8.
Linear and circular polarizers both consist of a linear polarizer foil but differ in their construction in the following way. Modern SLR cameras have have a beam-splitting prism that sends part of the incoming light to the meter and part to the viewfinder. The effect is that the light entering the meter is partially polarized by the beam-splitter. A linear polarized placed on the lens of such a system will act as a second polarizer and block light to the meter by a degree dependent on the angle between the prism and the polarizer on the lens. The result is incorrect exposure/aperture values from the meter. The circular polarizer circumvents this problem through the addition of a 1/4-wave retarder, or delay, foil. This ensures that the linearly polarized light is changed into a rotation that appears unpolarized to the meter, resulting in proper exposure/aperture readings.

The Panasonic DMW-LND55 55mm 0.9 ND Filter is a solid neutral density filter providing an exposure reduction of about 3 stops. This 0.9 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image and are ideal for pairing with other filters.

The lightest B+W Neutral Density Filter attenuates the light by one f-stop (log density 0.3), which can be beneficial, for instance, for the correct exposure of high-speed films when the brightness of the subject is still too high for the fastest shutter speed and the smallest aperture. It is recommended especially as a complement to B+W Neutral Density Filter 102 for fine adjustments. The filter factor is 2x.
The Panasonic DMW-LPL37 37mm Circular Polarizer Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. A polarizer is able to absorb much of this polarized light and, in turn, increase the saturation of skies and foliage, cut through distant haze, and minimize reflections in glass and on water.
A circular polarizer differs from a linear polarizer in that it integrates a quarter wave plane within a linear polarizing filter. The addition of this helps to circularly polarize reflected light, which enables your camera’s autofocus and auto-exposure mechanisms to function properly.
This filter features a slim filter ring design for reducing vignetting with wide angle lenses.
- Helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
- Clears up haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
- Strongest effect when used at a 90° from the sun.
- Circular polarizers are ideal for use with digital cameras and autofocus lenses where a linear polarizer will often disrupt auto exposure and focus features.
- Slim design helps to reduce vignetting when used in conjunction with wide angle lenses.
B+w 55mm Xs-pro Digital Nano Multi-coated Mrc Clear #007 Filter 1066105 : B+W’s Multi-Coated (MRC) coating takes filter production to a new level. It features improved cleaning capabilities. Water droplets will bead up better and be easier to remove from the filter. This filter is also scratch-resistant. Single coating is applied to one layer on each glass surface. This improves light transmission from about 92% (uncoated glass) to about 98%. It also has certain anti-reflective properties that help prevent against ghosting and internal flaring. XS-Pro filters are extra thin but still retain front threads. The filter ring is made from brass yielding a stronger product. Brass filter rings are also less prone to jamming. In addition, the seal between the glass and filter ring is exceptionally strong giving the filter added strength and durability. The excellent Schott Glass used in the manufacturing of this filter is legendary and synonymous with the highest standards of filter production. It comes with a solid 10-year warranty.

It will select which light rays will enter your camera lens. The PRO DHD Filter will enable colors to become more saturated and appear clearer with better contrast. The UV filter does not affect the overall color balance of shot. product made in Japan. (Bower lifetime warranty)
B+w B+w 58mm Neutral Density (nd) 0.6-4x Filter 72871 : This B+W Neutral Density Filter reduces the light by two f-stops (log density 0.6), and it is the most popular ND filter in photographic work. It offers many benefits, for instance f/4 instead of f/8 for selective sharpness instead of a great depth of field, or 1/15 s instead of 1/60 s for a flowing instead of a ?frozen? waterfall. It has excellent color neutrality, costs less than the denser filters, and is recommended as part of a basic outfit. The filter factor is 4x.
This most delicate reddish-yellow conversion filter absorbs violet and some blue plus a minimal amount of green, but it passes yellow and red undiminished; the color of the light becomes ?warmer? by 15 Mired. That is mostly the optimal amount for correcting the light blue cast in the shadows under a blue sky. It also absorbs UV radiation and hence it provides better sharpness. With color films and/or developing processes that generally yield results that are too ?cool,” this filter can be kept on the lens at all times. With this filter, skin tones in particular will be rendered more naturally. Its filter factor is approximately 1:1. MRC (Multi-Resistant Coating) by B+W is not only an extraordinarily effective multiple layer coating, it is also harder than glass, so that it protects filters from scratches (for instance when cleaning the filters), and it is also water and dirt repellent, thus facilitating filter maintenance. This filter uses our standard B+W F-Pro filter mount made of brass. Compared to the earlier standard mount introduced in 2001, the F-Pro mount has become thinner. Now it can be used with wide angle lenses, including most 24mm focal lengths on a full frame body, without vignetting. Another advantage of the F-Pro mount is it’s modified retaining ring, which is no longer threaded in from the front, but holds the filter glass in place from the back. When removing a filter or lens hood that has been screwed on too tight to the filter, the retaining ring is not at risk of loosening.
Brno Balens 77mm White Balance Lens Cap Bal77 :
BRNO baLens 77mm White Balance Lens Cap has arrived to H and B Digital! The baLens is a snap-on lens cap with a removable translucent dome in the center. By simply placing the cap on your lens, pointing the camera at the light source and doing a manual white balance, superior color correction is easily achieved under any lighting conditions. Simple. Smart. Functional. Change the way your camera sees color. Go from orange, blue and green-tinted photos to beautifully captured color by setting a custom white balance with the baLens Cap. The baLens White Balance Lens Cap system comes with interchangeable neutral and warm filters. With a baLens Cap you can get better colors right out of the bag.
Save time, energy and money by eliminating the need to adjust an image’s color balance in your photo editing software. baLens allows you to concentrate on the creative aspects of your photography. The baLens is simple to use: mount the baLens Lens Cap on the lens, take a reference exposure of the light falling on your intended subject with the camera set in manual focus/auto exposure mode. This Lens Cap will allow the setting of a custom white balance based on the actual color temperature of the light source. Using the camera’s menu functions, locate the custom white balance setting and apply the reading.
A warm dome is included for when you wish to achieve natural skin tones in portraits or an overall warmer effect in your photos. BRNO implements very strict quality controls. For example, once the formula for the center filter pieces are mixed, a pre-production sample is taken and measured against a control sample on a photo spectrometer and densitometer. Once this is approved, then samples are taken from production pieces during various times during output and retested, providing you a product that meets the highest of standards.
The B&W 67mm UV-415 (2B) UV-Blocking Filter is nearly colorless and blocks UV radiation up to the limit of visible light. This is a very strong UV filter that is especially useful in digital photography where sensors are particularly susceptible to “noise” in the UV spectrum.
Neutral Density filters enable the shooter to adjust exposure without affecting color balance. ND filters appear gray and reduce the amount of light reaching the film. Neutral density filters are available in 1, 2, 3, or 4 stops to suit individual situations. Neutral Density filters permit you to create unique effects. When using high speed film in bright light, an ND filter will allow you to blur motion such as speeding cars or moving water. This permits adjustments in aperture and exposure that would normally not be possible without the filter.
