My pictures are definitely better with this filter. However, I spend a tremendous amount of time cleaning it. And I can never seem to get all the dust off it, even with the proper spray and cloth. Is this because it's basically plastic and static prone? I'm not sure.

I intend to try other brands.

            Comments about Cokin P Series Soft-Edge Graduated Neutral Density 0.9 Filter (3-Stop):

            Its a decent filter for the price.
            Does its job as intended.
            Filter looks extremely cheap, almost like a cheap window of a chinese made toy bus... but the box looks more expensive then the filter ... in fact the box is made of really good durable platsic material and looks elegent. I think Cokin needs to spend more money on the glass even if it means giving cheaper or no box.
            The filter definately looks rediculously cheap on my L glass but at the moment I am willing to spend only this much as I need to learn more about using filters correctly. Once I get good at it, I will definately buy better quality filters. I would recommend it only for those who have entry level lenses or if you are like me who wants to learn first before spending extra on better filters.

              Comments about Cokin P Series Soft-Edge Graduated Neutral Density 0.9 Filter (3-Stop):

              Cokin Graduated Gray ND filters are my favorite for the price. I've tried Hitech but was not completely happy with them. I guess I just expected more cause I paid more.....my bad. I assume I would have to make the jump to the really pricy ones for a noticeable improvement. (Just a guess)
              But I don't think I would grab the expensive ones anyway. I tend to work fast(rush) and as a result my filters get abused. Cheap ones are easier to replace.

                Comments about Cokin P Series Soft-Edge Graduated Neutral Density 0.9 Filter (3-Stop):

                This is the best ND grad filter by far. There are others out there, but nothing matches the Cokin range for quality and price. Easy to use with the Cokin P Filter holder, and gives great results when you want to darken down a brigh sky for balance and dramatic effect. Works well with my Sigma 10-20mm and Tamron 17-50.
                Every photographer should have one of these in their bag.

                  I use this filter for my landscapes particularly for moving water and clouds. It performs as promised and is far more effective than one might think fhis time, there are no holders for the price.
                  The only down side is, at this time, there are no holders and adapters available for this filter so it demands tripod with my holding the filter over my lens...a but awkward but not impossible.

                      Comments about Cokin P Series Soft-Edge Graduated Neutral Density 0.9 Filter (3-Stop):

                      This is my first ND Grad filter. I am using it in hard day light and soft sunlight, during morning and evening hours too. This is a good filter for the people like me who are starting to learn the importance of filters. Honestly speaking, most of the time, this filter leaves magenta tint to the image (mostly during longer exposures). Most of the time, they can be corrected in post processing.
                      I believe, the product you get, depends on the money you spent. This product is worth the money and I will recommend this for starters. Once you are familar with filters, you can decide which filters are suitable for your photography and you can go for a better (expensive) alternative. 4 star - Value for money.

                      Good luck and Enjoy your clicks.

                        Most of the filters add "non-natural" effects ; it's not the case with this one and its little friend P121L.It's really hard to find those references in most of the store : so use B&H stock while they have them...

                              Easy to use. Gives nice image quality. Not the best filter but the best I can afford.

                                  I bought a Cokin P series mount and several filters graduated neutral density filters for use on my Canon L series lenses. I'm pleased with the results. No noticeable degradation due to the resin filters. They work great!
