About Cokin

•Light rays which are reflected by any surface become polarised and polarising filters are used to select which light rays enter your camara lens.
• They allow you to remove unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water, glass etc.
• They also saturate colors and increase contrast.
•Polarizers come in two variations but have the same effect. Linear polarizers work with older camera meters; circular polarizers are designed for today's newer slpit-beam metering systems used in auto focus cameras; check your camera's manual.

Works as expected

I have been using Cokin P filter holder for polarizer and 1 or 2 graduated gray filters for several years. Fantastic for landscape photos. Same filters for many lenses is a major plus. But to be able to slide a graduated filter up/down to just the right spot (instead of just rotating around the middle) is where the genius comes in. Just make sure your holder size works with your wide angle lenses. You might need a bigger size holder.

Rarely out of my bag

It is very stiff and not easy to turn; the edge of the filter has a very small spot to grasp. I rarely use it at all. The main reason for the purchase was an economical way to put a polarizer on my 16-35 Canon L lens which can be expensive to fit with filters.

Super polarizer

By

from Hillsborough NC  -  Photo Enthusiast

Awesome polarizer. Have used linear polarizers for years...will never go back. Cokin, as always is a high quality product with a system that allowed me use the filters across lenses for different camera types.

Great Polarizer Filter

By

from Thousand Oaks, California  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is a great filter. I would recommend getting it. You only have to buy one filter for all your glass

A hassle to use w/other filters

By

from Columbus OH  -  Photo Enthusiast

If you're stacking this filter with a grad ND, it can be a bit annoying; if you want to rotate the filter, it's very easy to rotate the entire holder. If you're stacking with a Grad. ND filter (or any other filter you don't want to rotate), however, you need to rotate the CPL within the filter holder. It's possible, but a bit cumbersome to do on the fly. Once set, however, the rubber ring on the CPL doesn't slip against the plastic holder. But you'll need to reset it every time you rotate the camera or the filter holder. Besides this fairly minor point, however, it does exactly what you expect.

Excellent Product

By

from Ogden UT  -  Semi-pro Photographer

As with all Cokin products, this filter does exactly what it is supposed to do. Pops out clouds and darkens skies. Brings out intense colors, and is easy to turn and use for specific effects.

It does what it should

By

from Wilkeson, Wa.  -  Photo Enthusiast

Bought this filter to go with my Cokin system so I don't have to buy a separate filter for each of my lenses.

Best Filter I have

By

from Columbus, OH  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I travel to Eurpoe every summer and I use the Cokin filter system exclusively because of the versitility it offers. The Polarizer filter is one of the best in my collection and I highly recommend it to anyone traveling. It works great in bringing out color and it works especially well with making clouds pop out ot the sky. If you want your travel photos to look professional and you want to capture more than just a average tourist shot, I would suggest you add this filter to your collection.

Good idea for multiple filter sized lens

By

from Seattle, WA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

It works well with Holder. It has the advantage of working with several different filter sized lens that I own. Less expensive than purchasing Polirizer Filers for several lens.

Gene B  Is this Cokin P Series Circular Polarizer Filter made of Glass or Plastic?
TIMOTHY JOHN J  Hi Gene B, The P164 Circular Polarizer Filter is made from Glass. I highly recomend it for cutting out any unwanted glare, reflections and to give your landscapes that deep saturated blue sky. Hope this helps.
