Schneider introduces new Vari-ND filters


Made in Germany
The B+W line of products is one of the most respected brands in photography. After developing techniques for multi-layer coating systems (MC), B+W became the first filter manufacturer to incorporate the innovative water and dirt repelling MRC multi-layer coating process, to offer superior anti-reflection properties and scratch-resistance.

The state-of-the-art Bad Krueznach plant produces precision filters that undergo stringent quality control standards to meet the needs of professional photographers. Continuous improvements and new developments enable today’s shooters to achieve their best possible images. B+W understands that the quality of your image depends on what is in front of the lens.

Precision Engineered Mounts
Not all mounts are created equal. B+W has invested decades in perfecting the ideal design, materials and craftsmanship to maintain the industry’s respect. Made of quality brass, each mount is machined, then a black coating is applied to eliminate reflections. Photographers may choose from the: Premium XS-Pro Digital thin mount, or the Professional F-Pro standard mount *(ND Vario mounts are aluminum for manufacturing reasons).
