B+W Filters, SCHNEIDER-Magnifiers and Digital Filters — Photographic filters for high optical requirements. They are used by professionals as well as amateurs in the fields of photography, video and TV just as successfully as they are used in science and technology. Virtually all the filters are made of SCHOTT glasses and they are available in screw-, bayonet-, slip-on- and series mounts. Special mention should be made of KÄSEMANN-type polarizing filters. High-grade SCHNEIDER Magnifiers for all fields of visual control complement the extensive line of B+W Filter products.
