Cokin 72mm NUANCES Variable ND Filter (1 to 8-Stop)

BH #COCNV272 • MFR #CNV2-72
Cokin 72mm NUANCES Variable ND Filter (1 to 8-Stop)
Key Features
  • Variable Neutral Density Filter
  • Reduces Exposure by 1 to 8 Stops
  • Darkens Entire Image
  • Greater Control over Exposure Settings
The 72mm NUANCES Variable ND Filter from Cokin is a variable neutral density filter that is designed to mount onto lenses with 72mm front filter threads and provides an exposure reduction of 1 to 8 stops. Its density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. The degree of density is easily controlled by rotating the front filter ring, helping you to predetermine the additional exposure length required. By increasing your aperture or slowing your exposure time, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily. For easier, repeatable control over density settings, the front ring is visually demarcated with dots and includes a rotation lever to further enable fast and precise positioning of the front ring.

This filter is constructed from Schott B270 glass for increased optical clarity as well as color fidelity, and each glass surface features 16 layers of Cokin's EVERCLEAR 5 anti-reflection coating. These coatings are resistant to oil, dust, dirt, and scratches, offering greater protection to the filter and helping it to stay clean for longer than with uncoated filters. The coatings are also hydrophobic, resulting in an improved beading effect when in contact with water for greater cleaning efficiency.

Variable neutral density filter allows you to apply differing amounts of density from scene to scene.

Provides an exposure reduction of 1 to 8 stops, allowing you to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.
Offers increased flexibility to use specific ISO settings or ISO films under bright ambient light.
Provides increased exposure flexibility while using cinema or video cameras within a designated film frame rate.
Constructed from Schott B270 glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity.
16-layer Cokin EVERCLEAR 5 multi-coating prevents internal ghosting and reflections; is oil, dust, dirt, as well as scratch resistant; and provides an improved beading effect with water for more efficient cleaning.

Cokin CNV2-72 Reviews

Has a huge color cast

This filter looks good in the center and darkens the image as needed, but on the edges it has some very strange coloring, with purples and greens, I had my white balance set correctly and although the colors that this filter created were kind of interesting, I probably couldn't use this in professional applications where you need consistent colors across the filter changes.

Never used a Variable ND Filter before

Seems to be the answer to my husbands issues with changing out so many filters. Works well. Only gave 4 stars as it is new and we still need to test it out a bit more.
