• Grey Neutral Density filters compensate for bright light.
• By under-exposing the sky, they give a better relief to the surfaces and colors of landscapes and architecure.
• They are indispensable in summer, for seaside and mountain photos.
• They are available in six choices to cover every situation.
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!
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
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.
I really like this system of filters. However, not when I am in a hurry. Takes a little longer to put on camera, than a screw type filter.
