Cokin CP173 Overview

  • 1Description

Light rays which are reflected become polarized. Polarizing filters are used to select which light rays enter your camera lens. They can remove unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water or glass and also saturate colors providing better contrast. If you combine a Variocolor with a Neutral Polarizer, you can vary the intensity by rotating the Neutral Polarizer. For example, depending on the relative rotation of the VarioColor Blue/Yellow filter and the Neutral Polarizer, the reflections become either a blue tint or a yellow tint according to how the filter is rotated and its orientation to the sun.

This filter measures 85 x 85mm and fits the Cokin P series holder.

Cokin CP173 Reviews

P173 Varicolor Blue/Yellow Special Color Effect Glass Filter is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Turned my blue sky yellow! What a fun little filter. Creates some unique effects without having to do any post-production. I'd say even creating effects that would be next to impossible doing in post.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor optically The filter visibly causes image degradation (blurring) when viewed at 100% on modern DSLRs. Don't waste your money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting effects with blue/yellow I use it yellow mode when I am stuck in mid-day or hazy light but need a bit of yellow to warm things up. The variable control allows dialing in just the right amount. I use the blue end much less frequently, but dull water or sky can be improved somewhat. It is easy to over-do either way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb! The best $ I have spent in a long time.Much cheaper than a warming polarizer and probably more useful.I prefer the blue effect for a dull sky.This filter is also well built, circular in a square holder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cokin #P173 Filter This is a must have filter if you are looking for brilliant hues of blue sky in your background shots. Great for landscape shots over rocks. People will really awe at your photos when using this filter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal for special effects When I want to add special effects on a dreary day.....when you're on vacation , you have to put up with not so great weather and this filter is a perfect boost of color when all you see is grey.
