Perfect Cokin starter kit for Digital

While most Cokin filter effects can be added in post production, the gradient ND system brings back the skies to digital shooters by bringing the skies and foreground closer together in exposure. No longer do you need to choose between perfect skies and underexposed subjects or perfect subjects and blown out skies. The device mounts on an adapter ring (not included) that is sized for the threads on your lens. From there it clicks into place and can be rotated easily for your shooting style. D

Drop in one of the three Gradient ND filters included in this set and it can be slid up and down and rotated to match your scene. Be sure to get yourself a Cokin P lens cap to protect your filters when hiking from spot to spot.

Decent but not perfect

ND Grads are necessary to balance exposure between foreground and sky when shooting landscapes - allows an "HDR" effect to be obtained without the post processing work. System works relatively well, but watch for overly warm color casts in the darkened areas of the filter, especially when stacking multiple filters. Vignetting is a serious problem using my 12-24 on my D90 Nikon, the wide angle adapter is a MUST and will still vignette without care when shooting wide. Overall, a good product at

Overall, a good product at a reasonable price. And as always, you only get what you pay for... this system could be better, but it could also be more expensive. It does what it is intended for, it's limitations need to be understood.

Inexpensive tool for better photos

By

Inexpensive too. Easy to use with almost endless possibilities even for an amateur like me.

Nice filter set

By

from Columbus, OH  -  Photo Enthusiast

Very nice to have for landscape and toning down bright skies. It's nice to be able to swap them among my different lenses, unlike the fitted round ones.

Better than round ND grads

By

from Houston, TX  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Graduated ND filters are great for toning down bright areas (eg: skies in landscapes or architecture). The best thing about the Cokin system over round ND grads is the ability to reduce brightness in a small or large portion of the image -- not just down the center. The only real negative is the amount of space they take up in your bag. They can also chip if not handled with care but are both more durable and MUCH less costly than the glass versions.

Cokin ND Graduated Filters (P Series)

By

from Southern California  -  Pro Photographer

These filters are great for "softening" water and other motion blurring in long exposures, while at the same time permitting the correct amount of light to enter the camera...when stacked (and inverted as I often do), there is an wide range of stops that can be achieved in any composition

Great must haves for landscape/beach

By

from San Diego Ca  -  Photography Student

I don't use the holder so these work very well on all my lens. I just use gaffer tape which really helps when using multiple filters that need to be adjusted for specific lines. All three ususally just stay in the bag for each trip out.

Nice filter set

By

from New York

Very nice for toning down a bright sky to get detail in a landscape. Very easy to use. Wide range of adapter rings available to fit to nearly any lens.

Worth it for the filter holder alone

By

from Lawn Guyland  -  Photo Enthusiast

Solid product, you definitely get your money's worth. Just remember that you need to buy the adapter ring for your particular lens size so the mount can fit on your camera. It's not included.

Must Have For Landscapes

By

from So. Cal.  -  Semi-pro Photographer

So far, used exclusively for sunset landscapes over the ocean. Besides the usual, and since the filters stack, I've used two, one of them inverted, to keep the sunset and the wet sand from blowing out while having proper exposure in the center on the rolling waves. Short of HDR, there's no better control.

Questions about this item:

MACIEJ P  ...it should be neutral, in my case I have color change, neutral is reddish not darker only. Why?
HIEN L  I've never had that problem,I think you should check your WB,and when it's too dark thee WB will measure wrong/All these thing happen only with WB,Cokin made the good filters of course not the best but fit our budget.
MACIEJ P  ... I don`t use white balance , Kelvin temperature is my guide, any way I have to reduce amount of the light coming in to the room and only in there I have this problem.
MACIEJ P  ... neutral? Why am I getting reddish color on the dark part of my pictures?
RICHARD R  I can only make an educated guess you might have to adjust your white balance
MACIEJ P  ...thank you, I go only with Calvin, and shifting white balance is a part of the game. Any way red color appears only in the areas that i need to be darker.
