B+W 007 XS-Pro Clear Filter MRC NANO
The BW 007 XS-Pro Clear Filter MRC NANO coating is the ultimate for pure lens protection. Its sole purpose is to keep dirt, sand, and moisture off the front lens element. This extremely clear special glass with high transmittance is available with the B+W MRC nano-coating (Premium Line). The hydrophobic coating reduces the adhesion tendency of dirt particles and water droplets. The advantages are; extremely easy cleaning and maximum reduction of reflections.
Both sides of the B+W nano coated filters feature the same high-quality 7 layers of multi-coating as used on the MRC coated filters. This ensures high transmittance and maximum elimination of reflections by minimizing reflection losses. Because the normal 4% reflection losses at the surface of the glass are reduced to an average of well below 0.5% with an MC layer, brighter colors and higher contrasts can be achieved.
The MRC nano outer layer is an innovative extra layer that significantly outperforms the dirt and water repellent effect of the well-known B+W MRC coating.
Thanks to the nanotechnology-based surface property (lotus effect), dirt can hardly adhere. Water experiences a very efficient beading effect and virtually rolls off the surface of the glass. Cleaning the filter is incredibly easy and fast. In addition, the super-hydrophobic surface reduces fogging. After moving from cold to warm surroundings, the condensation disappears from the surface of the filter glass within seconds.
The BW 007 XS-Pro Clear Filter MRC NANO coating is the filter range with an extremely slim filter mount. XS-Pro 007 is ideal for the demanding DSLR photographer with typical wide-angle zoom lenses starting from 12 mm focal length with APS-C and 18 mm focal length with 35mm full frame. A number of filter diameters are available that include mirror-less camera systems also.
Despite the low profile height of 3.2 mm for screw-on filters and 4.2 mm for rotatable polariser, (in each case without mount thread), this ring is equipped with a full front thread for additional B+W accessories such as a lens hood or snap-on lens cover (snap cap).
With the exception of the ND-Vario, B+W XS-Pro 007 filter mounts are precision-made of brass.
