Cokin 164 overview

  • 1Description

The Cokin X-Pro Series Circular Polarizer Filter is designed to be used in a Cokin X-Pro Series Filter Holder and helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.

A circular polarizer only differs from a linear polarizer in that it contains a quarter wave plane in addition to the linear polarizing filter. The addition of this quarter wave plane is to circularly polarize the linearly polarized light for the use of auto focus and exposure functions. Due to how the light is broken down and filtered with a linear polarizer, auto focus and exposure accuracy become skewed during use. When the light becomes circularly polarized, it permits the use of these functions.

This filter is non-coated. The frame it is mounted in features a knurled edge so that the filter can be easily rotated in order to adjust its effect while placed within a compatible holder.

Compatible with a Cokin X-Pro Series Filter Holder.
Helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
Polarizing filters arrange, and filter, directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of the light.
Clears up haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
Strongest effect when used at a 90° angle from the sun.
Circular polarizers are ideal for use with digital cameras and autofocus lenses where a linear polarizer will often disrupt auto exposure and focus features.
Non-coated.
3x filter factor reduces exposure by 1.6 stops.
Constructed from optical glass.
Filter frame features a knurled edge so that the filter can be easily rotated and its polarization effect adjusted while placed within a compatible holder.

    X-Pro Series Circular Polarizer Filter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT! Simply put - this is one of the best filters I've used. Like the way it fits and works in the holder - much nicer/easier than the P system. Works well in my workflow.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Yes, CPs are very expensive in this size. But there's no other product than can accomplish what they can accomplish. Insertion is easy and rotation is smooth and simple. Removal from the holder can be tricky, but a small plastic wedge is provided to help remove the CP. Quality appears to be quite good.
