Most Liked Positive Review


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.


Most Liked Negative Review


Works with the set

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

Good Investment


from Annapolis, MD  -  Semi-pro Photographer

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.


Nice procduct

Just What I Needed


from Grand Rapids, MI  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

My usual subjects are landscapes. This is a necessary filter to control sky burn-out


Makes a big difference!


from San Antonio, Texas  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

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!

Very useful filter ....


from Conway, SC  -  Casual Photographer

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!

Description on Page is Incorrect


from Ewa Beach, HI  -  Semi-Professional

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. Grey2 color. 120 - 3.3X graduated neutral density filter, reduces the light 1.5 stops. Hard edge. Grey1 color. 121M - 4X graduated neutral density filter, reduces the light 2 stops. Hard edge. Grey2 color 121 - 8X graduated neutral density filter, reduces the light 3 stops. Hard edge. Grey2 color. 121S - 8X graduate neutral density filter, reduces the light 3 stops. Soft edge - graduation extends to 3/4 of the filter. Grey2 color


Ok but...


from Overland Park, KS  -  Technically Challenged

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




from Rockland County,N.Y.  -  Photo Enthusiast

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.

Works fine


from Pittsburgh, PA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

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.
