The B+W Digital MRC Polarizer will bring out the blue in the sky and create more contrast in scenes overall without overdoing it. The realistic quality that the B+W offers is a positive point for some photographers, where others feel they'd rather have a larger range of polarizing effects to control. Unlike cheaper polarizers though, the B+W blocks out a smaller amount of light at just 1.3 stops. Built from high quality materials, the B+W features a brass ring and scratch-resistant coatings.
While well designed, the B+W can be at times difficult to unscrew. The B+W also sits at a higher price point than most other filters in the category. Unlike options like the Singh-Ray ColorCombo, the B+W works only as a polarizer without any additional enhancement.
