The Cokin NUANCES Extreme X-Pro Series Center-Graduated Neutral Density 0.6 Filter is a filter designed for use with a Cokin X-Pro Series Filter Holder. It can be applied to darken the sky, specifically along the horizon during a sunrise or sunset, while allowing for a normal, unaffected exposure in the other regions of the image.

This filter achieves its effect with a 0.6 band of density across its center region that provides up to a 2-stop reduction in light from entering a lens. The band of density extends approximately 1.6" in both vertical directions before tapering to clear below and above, with soft-edged lines of transition before the clear areas. The clear areas then extend approximately 2.6" until they meet the top and bottom edges of the filter.

A narrow 0.6 band of density with larger clear areas directly above and below it allows the Cokin NUANCES Extreme X-Pro Series Center-Graduated Neutral Density 0.6 Filter to specifically match the positioning of the sun when it is at, or immediately above, the horizon. In such instances, the sun will appear closer to the center of an image as opposed to the upper edge, and an increase in brightness is created which is much more prominent on both sides of the sun than either above or below it. This pattern of brightness corresponds to the density pattern on the Cokin NUANCES Extreme X-Pro Series Center-Graduated Neutral Density 0.6 Filter. The soft-edged lines of transition in this filter are useful for images that have features alongside the sun that cannot be confined within the band of density.

Cokin NUANCES Extreme filters are constructed from tempered, shock-resistant glass and feature nano-metallic alloy film coatings on both sides of the filter surface to attenuate infrared light while maintaining true color fidelity, even when stacked with other Cokin NUANCES or NUANCES Extreme filters. Anti-glare coatings further help to reduce surface reflections for increased contrast and clarity, while additional hydrophobic coatings result in an improved beading effect when in contact with water for greater cleaning efficiency. Additionally, Cokin NUANCES Extreme filters feature C-shaped edges. This rounded edge shape resists chipping to further enhance durability.

  • Compatible with a X-Pro Series Filter Holder
  • Effectively darkens skies, specifically along the horizon during a sunrise or sunset, while allowing for a normal, unaffected exposure in the other regions of the image
  • 2-stop band of density across filter that extends approximately 1.6" in both vertical directions before tapering to clear areas that extend 2.6" until they meet the top and bottom edges of the filter
  • Creates a neutral density pattern that matches the positioning of the sun when it is at, or immediately above the horizon
  • Density pattern to specifically match the brightness pattern of the sun when it appears at or is close to the horizon as opposed to a higher angle, which creates an increase in brightness that is much more prominent on both sides of the sun than either above or below it
  • Soft-edged line of transition between the 2-stop band of density and the clear areas above and below it are useful for images that have features alongside the sun that cannot be confined within the band of density
  • Filter does not affect the overall coloration of the image
  • Tempered, shock-resistant glass construction maintains high optical clarity with low reflectivity
  • A nano-metallic alloy applied to both sides of the filter attenuates infrared light and ensures neutral coloration even when stacked with other Cokin NUANCES or NUANCES Extreme filters
  • Anti-glare coatings help to reduce surface reflections for increased contrast and color fidelity
  • Hydrophobic coatings result in an improved beading effect when in contact with water for greater cleaning efficiency
  • C-shaped edges resist chipping to further enhance durability
  • Padded pouch included for storage and transport
