  • A MUST-HAVE Whether youre 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 elaborately 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 nanometer 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) Were 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, were helping photographers everywhere take clearer, crisper images.

Five stars Can't wait to test this polarizer as it delivered, sadly it's a cloudly day but still a small part of blue sky. I have the comparesion with and without polarizer, you can find the attached picture.This polarizer is very well built, it's very thin so you won't get any dark on the corner, like someone was worry about in Q&A, when using ultra wide angel lens. And it indeed increase the contrast of the sky, the color is deeper with polarizer. I haven't get a chance to test it on reduction of refecltion lights, but I am pretty sure it will. 5Excellent filter. Arrived on time, in good condition and appropriately packaged.Immediately struck by the quality of the construction. It felt well made and sturdy. Glass was pristine.As with a previous reviewer I have experienced a yellow colouration when using another brand of circular polarizer, Hoya Super HMC, so much so I had given up on using circular polarizers. Having had good experience with other B+W filters I decided to give this one a try. Tested the filter on a sunny day to enhance clouds/skies and also to remove reflections in water. The filter rotated smoothly with a suitable amount of resistance. I am pleased with the resulting images. No problem with unusual or overly dramatic colours and the filter successfully removed reflections in water.B+W filters are expensive, particularly in Canada, but given the quality of the construction and performance I think they are worth it. 5Thin, Light, Works Great 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. 5I got fake one. Be aware. 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. 1WARNING: There's a good chance you'll end up getting a fake knockoff filter. Beware. 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! 1A handy circular polarizer with only 1-1.5 f-stop loss in light. Read about this polarizer in Pop. Photography magazine. The feature that attracted me to it was relatively small 1-1.5 f-stop loss for a polarizer. I have before used polarizers on cameras and was always disappointed by the 2-3 f-stop loss.I used this polarizer on a recent trip to Peru and was satisfied with its ability to "pop" blue skies and reduce reflections on various backgrounds. Given its relatively small light loss, I left it on all day and also used it in low light situations which would would have been unthinkable before. One adjustment I made was to increase the ISO by one f-stop to compensate for indoor shooting. 5Fake. Exercise extreme caution when buying any BW filter on Amazon Owning many BW filters, it took me all of 3 seconds of opening the box to see this was a counterfeit filter. I reported it to Amazon but everyone should be warned of the extreme high risk of buying BW filters here now. It's such a bad knock off, they didn't even bother to fake the low-profile nature of it. Honestly, this is some lazy counterfeit work here. White lettering, not well placed. I'm sure at the Local 211 Countefeiters Guild, this kind of sloppy work would get them kicked out. TLDR: EXERCISE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN BUYING ANY BW FILTERS HERE. 1great product!! have been having issues find a usable cpl for my sony16-35 fe f4 on my sony a7rIIbeen 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! 5... test at my optical store and the results were amazing. I can say this filer is well made ... I had doubts if i bought the right filter and since i am optician and know how lenses are coated and made i tested it my own professional way The lens was well made and well coated i can say its flawless and i also did a polarizing test at my optical store and the results were amazing. I can say this filer is well made and i tested it on my lens the results were astonishing. Here couple of picture i have took ... enjoy and buy this filter 5The real B+W filter is awesome, this review is because the one I received was not authentic 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. 1
