The B+W UV-Haze XS-PRO Digital Filter blocks the invisible UV component of light from the sky, which can cause blur and to which many colour films react with a blue cast. UV Filters are ideal for photography in high altitudes, by the sea and in regions with very clean air. Photographs gain brilliance and blue casts are avoided. Because the glass is colourless, colour rendition is not altered and no increase in exposure is required. That makes a UV Filter suitable for protection of the lens against dust, flying sand, sea water spray and the like, and it can be kept on the lens at all times. It is recommended for analogue colour and black-and-white as well as digital photography.
B+W XS-Pro Digital Filters main features
Extra-Slim Mounting Rings that Eliminate Problems Associated with SLR Wide-angle and Telephoto Imaging
B+W XS-Pro filters employ a newly developed mounting ring that is especially suited for SLRs with wide angle and zoom lenses. The extremely thin design prevents the mounting ring from vignetting in even the widest shots. B+W XS-Pro Digital Filters have front threads for mounting additional accessories such as filters, screw on shades and lens covers. XS-Pro filter rings are made of brass and are matt black to prevent reflections.
Schneider’s Proprietary MRC Coating
MRC refers to the unique Multi Resistant Coating developed by Schneider-Kreuznach, which comes as standard on B+W XS-Pro Digital Filters. It provides perfect anti-reflection, brilliant colours and high contrast. Only Schneider lenses and B+W filters are protected by this extremely resistant multi-layer broadband coating (eight layers on both sides). In addition, the scratch-resistant, water- and dirt- repellent outer layer makes it easier to clean the glass surface. Due to its low residual reflection (0.5%) MRC prevents ghosting or double images, which can be caused by return reflections from sensors.
