About Cokin ND4X

• 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.
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 density. 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

Great - My new favourite toy

I live in the desert (Dubai, UAE) so some screamingly bright days. Been looking for one of these localy and gave up and let UPS take the strain. Fantastic product, helps counter the brigh skys, it's my new must have in the photo bag. Highly recomend it to anybody who struggles with bright skys, Photoshop is good but a GND is MUCH better.

Ok but...

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

Good Investment

By

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.

Makes a big difference!

By

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 ....

By

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!

Works fine

By

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.
