German filter manufacturer B+W has announced a new filter holder to go with the 2mm thick 100mm square filters it launched this year.

The new holder is made from aluminum and offers three slots so users can use multiple filters at the same time. The holder has a light seal on the rear to prevent leaks during long exposures, and the system has adapter rings for lenses with threads of 52mm to 82mm.

You can pick up the new filter holder now for £95 (~$125 USD), while the adapter rings cost £25 (~$33 USD) each. For more information visit the website of distributer Manfrotto.

B+W Filters Announces New Filter Holder

Perfect Addition to B+W’s Square Filter Range

B+W filters, one of the world’s leading filter manufacturers, has announced the launch of the new Filter Holder.

Excellent Quality with Increased Stability

Launched to complement the range of the square filters that were released earlier this year, the new filter holder fits 100 x 100 x 2mm filters. It features an aluminium frame which means increased stability and has the capacity to hold up to 3 square filters. The light seal avoids incidence, and adapter rings for Ø52, 55, 58, 62, 67, 72, 77 and 82mm are also available.

Full Filter System

The release of the Filter Holder means that B+W offer a full filter system. Along with the Filter Holder, the Square Filters guarantee excellent image quality due to the finely ground, polished special glass that is used as the base. The 3 layer combination coating optimises the filter to deliver results, and the combination coating (MRC Nano) prevents troublesome reflections by including a multilayer anti-reflection component with seven layers on each side of the filters.

Stable and Resistant

Both the Filters and Filter Holder from B+W ensure stability when taking photos – the aluminium frame of the Filter Holder makes it stable when in use, and the ND filter series are dimensionally stable thanks to the glass substrate which means they cannot warp or distort.

The new B+W Filter Holder is priced at £94.95, with the rings being £24.95 each.
