Extremely thin design prevents the mounting ring from vignetting in even the widest shots.

The extremely thin design of the new B W XS-Pro Digital Filter Rings prevents the mounting ring from infringing on the image area in even the widest or longest shots.

Schneider Optics, the well known lens and professional filter manufacturer, has announced the availability of the B+W XS-PRO Digital Filter Series. All 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. A Clear Type 007 MRC filter is now available. Planned are 010 UV MRC and the KSM circular pol-filter MRC.

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 colors 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.
