Cokin 164 overview

This is the Cokin Z-PRO 164 Circular Polarizing Filter.

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. The effect can be seen through the viewfinder and changed by rotating the filter.

The Z-PRO Series is recommended for focal lengths of 20mm onwards (in the 35mm format).

Note: Circular polarizers are specifically designed for use with auto-focus SLR cameras (they will also work on manual systems and video cameras without problems).

This filter eliminates ultraviolet rays from outdoor shots as well as polarizing the light to remove reflections and increase color saturation without affecting the overall color balance
Can dramatically enhance a blue sky and make the clouds more prominent
Used best at right angle to the sun
Effective with cameras that use beam splitters in the path of the TTL light meter and with AF cameras
2x filter factor reduces exposure by 1 stop
Constructed from optical glass for clarity and color fidelity

    Z-PRO 164 Circular Polarizing Filter is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Happy - But it works! This is way over-priced. I am a long time user of Cokin Pro Z filters and love the system, I use it all the time...figured I would simplify my life and buy the Polarizer so I don't need a zillion different sizes for each lens and figured I would also then use it with the other Cokin filters I use, especially for landscapes. It barely fits in the first slot and with another filter in slot two or three it is almost impossible to turn to adjust for glare etc. For the price it is very difficult to use and I am not very pleased, but guess I will make it work, but it's use will be limited by the aggravation factor. You might think twice before spending this much money for this filter...the filter itself is good but it is very difficult to use in the standard Cokin Pro Z holder and if you add another filter like a Graduate ND for a landscape you MUST do it after you adjust the Polarizer and even then it is difficult to turn the polarizer in the holder. Good Luck!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great polarizer! Fits nicely into Z-Pro. Very simple to use & gives great effects! Thin glass & does not weigh as much as conventional, thicker polarizers. Very pricey, however...compared to the entire Cokin system, and that will limit its buyers significantly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Circular Polarizer I have used the Cokin Z-Pro system for years, When I am going to use the polarizer it is the first thing I set into the holder and adjust. It is easy to turn and you can usually see a visual difference. After it is set then I add any other filters i am going to use. It is on the pricey side, but you only buy one circular polarizer with this system and with the right holder adapters it will fit on all of your lenses.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Filter Sets I have been a satisfied user of the Cokin Z-Pro filter sets for quite some time. The holders are well made and durable, and the filter quality is as good as any I've tried can't go wrong with these filters.
