Active photography puts a great demand on both cameras and lenses. It makes sense therefore to use a B+W filter to protect your delicate front lens element against the elements such as blowing sand and dust, fingerprints and splashing water. B+W filters not only cost just a fraction of the price of a new lens but they are also easier to clean. 


They can remain in front of the lens permanently as they are absolutely color-neutral, highly transparent and, thanks to the B+W MRC coating or B+W MRC nano-coating, have an extremely low reflection. The optical information remains unaffected when it reaches the image sensor (or film). With these extremely clear and highly transparent B+W protection filters, no exposure compensation factor needs to be taken into account.

Protection filters play a particularly important role in digital photography. The larger depth of field resulting from smaller image sensors increases the effects on image quality from front lens soiling. Fingerprints, for instance, reduce sharpness significantly, particularly in the case of zoom lenses with a lower light intensity and frequent cleaning of the front lens can not only cause scratching, but also transport dirt particles or moisture at the edge of the mount to the inside of the lens system.

  • Color-neutral filter glass

  • Blocks annoying UV components of daylight

  • No multiplying factor

  • Made in Germany

BASIC should be thought of as describing a filter that all serious photographers should have in their Basic filter kit.  The new knurled edge allows an improved grip, making attachment and removal easier.  All Basic filters include MRC coating and are suitable for both wide angle and telephoto lenses.

What makes the Basic filter mount interesting?
• A revised rotating ring with an optimized design for better grip.
• Wide range of diameters and filter types available

• Mount is made of solid brass and has a special finish for smooth mounting and dismounting
• All BASIC filters are MRC coated with 16x layers

• Sizes 30.5mm to 112mm
• The plastic box is replaced with a sustainable cotton bag with drawstring.
