120 - 2X graduated neutral density filter reduces the light 1 stop
121 - 8X graduated neutral density filter reduces the light 3 stops.
121L - 2X Light starts with the same neutral density as 120, but feathers the grey almost from the color edge and more gently graduates to clear. One stop of compensation.
121M - 4X Medium is the same gentle graduation as 121L but with twice in dens ty. Requires 2 stops of compensation.
121S - 8X Soft is twice the density of 121M and the graduation extends to 3/4 of the filter. Requires 3 stops.
121F - 8X Full is the same as 121S except that the neutral density grey cover the entire filter. Requires 3 stops

Good filter for taming landscapes
These filters have really added to sunrise and sunset shots. It also does a good job of blueing up sky in daytime shots.

Works with the set
I was hoping for the effect to be a bit more dramatic. Next time I will order the darker filter.

Purchased two ND filters, .6 and .9 to complement the round filters I usually use. They're effective as described and a bit easier to use as compared to the round filters.
Right size for my canon 24-70 lens. Would be better if it could be cheaper! lol
My usual subjects are landscapes. This is a necessary filter to control sky burn-out
I purchased the Graduated ND filter after reading Bryan Peterson's book "Understanding Exposure." I ran some test shots following the guidance in the book. What a difference this filter makes!
I use this & other filters like this for reducing glare from sunrise, sunset or overly bright conditions warrant the need for reducing the overall light values in a shot. They are also useful in recording time exposures, getting blur or motion, in a particular scene! Although not used all the time, having the various ND filters, 4X, 6X or 8X, gives you flexibility in your overall compositions!
These filter perplexed me for the longest time because they did not seem like they functioned as advertized. I found a PDF file on Cokins website which tells the TRUTH and accurately descrtibes these filters. The filter description on Cokins website, Adorama, and other webstie is INCORRECT 121L - 2X graduated neutral density filter reduces the light 1 stop. Hard edge.

Used this to reduce contrast between sky and land when shooting landscapes in Yosemite. I had trouble positioning the filter in exactly the correct position - it is hard to see where the shading begins but with time I hope to be more exact. My main complaint is in the quality of the color produced - it is too intense. I find that I prefer the Singh Ray filters
Very good quality,I use it ween the sky is to bright,I just hold it in front of the lens.I intend to a verity of the Cokin filters over time.I do not buy junk and this is a nice quality product.
Great for allowing slower shutter speeds for waterfall photography
This filter works just fine for most people. I got it for some beach sunrise photos and it worked good. I have to admit that I am partial to glass filters though. At a quarter of the price of glass, this is a value though. And if you are going to take a filter in a high risk for damage area, such as blowing sands on a stormy beach, this can't be beat.
