This Cokin P Series Filter Holder Kit from B&H is designed for the convenient use of 84mm-wide, 1.6mm-thick Cokin P Series Filters on a lens with 72mm front filter threads. It includes a Cokin P Series Solid Neutral Density 0.6 Filter that provides a 2-stop exposure reduction and can be used individually or in various combinations with other, separately available filters to improve the results of your photography by preventing overexposure.
To allow the filter to be placed in front of a lens, this kit contains a Cokin P Series Filter Holder that can accommodate up to three rectangular filters, or two rectangular filters and one round filter such as a rotating circular polarizer, for the Cokin P Series Filter Holders.
Use of the filter holder is easily accomplished by first screwing the included Cokin 72mm P Series Filter Holder Adapter Ring onto a compatible lens. It features a lightweight, aluminum-alloy construction that has a corrosion-resistant, black anodized finish for durability. Separately available adapter rings are available for lenses with 48mm, 49mm, 52mm, 55mm, 58mm, 62mm, 67mm, 77mm, or 82mm front filter threads; as well as Bay 50, Bay 60, Bay 70 or Rollei VI bayonet mounts. Lenses that measure 40mm to 82mm in diameter directly behind their front lens element may use a separately available Cokin Universal P Series Filter Holder Adapter Ring. After being directly fitted onto an adapter ring, the filter holder can be rotated 360°, permitting the use of graduated neutral density and other filters that are enhanced by varied positioning.
Cokin P Series Filter Holder
The Cokin P Series Filter Holder is designed to accommodate multiple Cokin P Series Filters in order to help create the shot you envision. It can hold up to three rectangular filters, or two rectangular filters and one round filter such as a rotating circular polarizer, for the Cokin P Series Filter Holders.
Rectangular Cokin P Series Filters are 84mm-wide and 1.6mm-thick. A Cokin P Series Filter Holder Adapter Ring can be used to connect this filter holder to the front of a lens.
Cokin P Series Filter Holder Adapter Ring (72mm)
This 72mm P Series Filter Holder Adapter ring from Cokin screws onto the lens' front threads of the same diameter and enables the P Series Adapter Ring to attach to the P series Filter Holder. Once the adapter and holder are attached to the lens filters can be slid into the holder and be used accordingly.
The adapter ring is made from aluminum, which has been anodized for durability.
Cokin P Series ND 0.6 Filter (2-Stop)
The Cokin P Series ND 0.6 Filter is a neutral density filter providing a 2-stop exposure reduction. This 0.6 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. By increasing your aperture or slowing your exposure time, you can control depth of field and convey movement more easily. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image and are ideal for pairing with other filters.
Cokin filters are constructed from optical resin and are notably light in weight, have a high resistance to shocks and drops, and provide optimum light transmission for high image quality. This filter measures 3.3 x 3.3" / 84 x 84mm and is compatible with the Cokin P filter holder.
