The Cokin Snap! Filter and Holder Starter Kit is an all-inclusive, ready-to-use filter kit that is well-suited for use with mirrorless and small DSLR cameras. The kit contains a 40.5mm adapter ring, a Cokin A Filter Holder, and both a Sunset and an ND4 filter. The combination of these two filters provides greater creative control over the exposure and coloring of imagery while the Cokin A filter system provides an efficient means for using a wide array of Cokin's creative and technical filters with compact cameras.
The ND4 filter is a solid neutral density filter that provides a two-stop reduction in exposure. The 0.6 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally requires. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.
The Sunset 2 warming filter is a graduated color filter that helps to specifically add a deep warm, orange coloration to skies and other bright areas of the image while allowing a portion of the image to receive a lighter, more natural orange coloring. The filter's coloring is densest at the edge and tapers to the lighter orange color by the middle of the filter with an even line of transition between the two tones.
Both filters are constructed from CR-39 optical resin and measure 2.6 x 2.6" / 67 x 67mm. The included filter holder supports all Cokin A-sized filters and the included adapter ring enables the attachment of the filter holder to lenses with a 40.5mm filter ring diameter.
Cokin A Series ND 0.6 Filter (2-Stop)
The Cokin A Series ND 0.6 Filter is a neutral density filter providing a 2-stop exposure reduction. This 0.6 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. By increasing your aperture or slowing your exposure time, you can control depth of field and convey movement more easily. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image and are ideal for pairing with other filters.
Cokin filters are constructed from optical resin and are notably light in weight, have a high resistance to shocks and drops, and provide optimum light transmission for high image quality. This filter measures 2.6 x 2.6" / 67 x 67mm and is compatible with the Cokin A filter holder.
Cokin A Series Graduated 0.6 to 0.3 Sunset 2 Filter (2 to 1-Stop)
The Cokin A Series Graduated 0.6 to 0.3 Sunset 2 Filter is designed for use with a Cokin A Series Filter Holder. Its graduated, edge-to-edge coloration can be used to create an intentional warming effect, which features gradation, over an entire image. This filter can be used to enhance an existing sunset within a scene or to simulate a sunset to enhance a hazy or colorless sky. The Cokin A Series Graduated 0.6 to 0.3 Sunset 2 Filter is densest at one edge with up to a 0.6 density that tapers to approximately a 0.3 density at the other edge. This filter's 0.6 to 0.3 density range corresponds to a reduction of light from entering a lens by two stops to one stop.
This filter is made of durable, optical resin (CR39) and measures 1.6mm thick.
