I use these filters for balancing out sky and foreground photos, and they do it fairly well. Except that when you use these filters, you get a purple haze in the images. Other then that, I had a few filters slip out of the holder because they werent a snug fit, and some are to tight.

Overall they are ok, just prepare for a little more post work.

      Great when the sky is grey. Keep the ISO low, open the shutter and get crisp, clear shots.

        For landscape photograph this is a great tool. I'm able to adjust the areas in the frame that are too bright. If filters are over weighted, however, it can make the photos flat (not enough contrast) Good tool if used properly.

          I am going on a photographic trip to Japan next month to photograph the snow monkeys and more and had read about these filters. I have been wanting these for some time and due to cost, went with Cokin and love them. Now will be looking for others to add.

            Great kit for the price

              Comments about Cokin Graduated Neutral Density Filter Kit for "P" Series (3 Filters and Filter Holder):

              I use this with a Canon 5d mk 2 and most of my lenses are 77 mm. The kit needs an adapter ring which has to be purchased separately depending on the the lens diameter. I also purchased a cap that goes in the filter holder which worked well.

              I primarily use this for landscapes and have really enjoyed it getting it right on the camera. There are a lot of people who will say that you can do this Lightroom, I still believe these inexpensive filters do a great job in keeping the light parts of the image light and helping cut down the "blinkies".

              If you are looking to start out with ND grad filters, this kit is a great way to go. The filters are made of plastic but do not show any optical issues. The holder works well with inserting/removing the filters.

              I did see some vignetting at 24mm on my 24-70 lens, but it is a simple crop fix. The other brands on the market are 3 to 4X more expensive and are still imperfect.

              You have to think ahead with these when using them, it is hard to keep the holder and/or filters on the lens and pack away the camera.

              B&H was very good to work with, they had the same kit at a cheaper price within 2 weeks after I purchased mine. A quick call got me the price difference as credit.

                The ND filters and holder in the kit really provide the ability to control exposures lighting in the correct area of the images. It has improved my landscape photos greatly.

                If you purchase this kit you will still need the adapter ring in order to attach the holder to your lens.

                Comments about Cokin Graduated Neutral Density Filter Kit for "P" Series (3 Filters and Filter Holder):

                These filters provide a more flexible approach to filtering light entering your camera lens. You have the ability to both rotate the filer and/or move the filter line up or down in accordance with the situation.
                That the filters are in the filter frame is both good and bad, as the frame holds the filter, but does inhibit some the ease with which it can move.
                The frame itself can be in the way when you want to pack your camera but want to have the filter ready for an upcoming shot.

                WARNING: Only beginners who want to practice using graduated filters at lower price should try these. Don't expect usable images unless you are willing to spend some time in Lightroom/Photoshop fixing the very obvious magenta color cast. It is almost impossible to shoot facing the sun with these filters. You've been warned.

                These are so fun to play with. Better than a circular for the fact you can adjust for rule of thirds. Even put on in right side up and then put the other upside down for fun and it worked out rather well. Scratched easily but doesn't affect images.

                  As a serious amateur photographer I have spent many hours trying to salvage a photo with blown out highlights or blocked shadows in Photoshop. This filter set relieves me of that chore. Very easy to use and the results are amazing. I would recommend this filter set.

                        I'm into landscape photography since less than a year and I these filters are perfect for me to start and exploring slow shutter speed also during daylight. I don't have to wait after the sunset for slow shutter results.

                          Comments about Cokin Graduated Neutral Density Filter Kit for "P" Series (3 Filters and Filter Holder):

                          I was looking to get a ND filter kit and this one fit the bill. Very good price point and it works amazingly on my Nikon 28 f2.8 ais lens.

                            Great product for the money. The adapter rings are overpriced though, just get a set of generic adapter rings. They do the same thing at less than one fourth the price.

                              These are great for outdoor morning and evening photos. I would buy again. Be sure to order the adapter ring if you plan on attaching the filter to the camera. They can be hand held, but attaching seems more convenient to me.

                                Comprei este kit para uso amador, com lentes grande angulares para fotografia de paisagem. A qualidade do kit em geral é boa e funcional, porém o suporte para os filtros se estende um pouco de mais a frente da lente, isso causa vinheta em lentes grande angulares extremas.
