I don't own the Cokin filter holder, I purchased just this filter only. I thought it would be better than a circular filter since the circular ones seem a bit limited, since they can't be raised or lowered.

The filter works as intended, and the difference is really noticeable between photographs I've taken of the same landscape with the filter on and the filter off. I use a rubber lens good to keep from scratching the filter when using it. I just hold the filter in front of the lens by hand and that works great.

I"ll probably end up getting the filter holder and other filters as well.

The only con I can think of was that the filter came in a hard plastic case. Something soft or padded would have been nice, but I'll just wrap a microfiber cloth around it and then put it in the case.

Comments about Cokin P Series Hard-Edge Graduated Neutral Density 0.6 Filter (2-Stop):

It works well for landscape photos, it is rated as 2 stop but seems the same as the 3 stop P121S and looks very much the same in the photos.

    Comments about Cokin P Series Hard-Edge Graduated Neutral Density 0.6 Filter (2-Stop):

    Great and inexpensive filter for landscapes / sunsets where you need to reduce the harshness / brightness of the sky against the foreground. I use this for very bright landscapes in Yosemite.

      Comments about Cokin P Series Hard-Edge Graduated Neutral Density 0.6 Filter (2-Stop):

      Post processing is wonderful--but nothing replaces a properly exposed film or digital negative. To get this, one must often reduce the sky brightness to match the content. This is the basis of a balanced image. The Cokin P-series, combined with the proper holder and matching lens rings gets this essential thing done. The high-resistant to scratching optical resin "glass" serves well with moderate care. A standard accessory in any well rounded photographers kit.

        I have this as part of my essential landscaping gear.
        When you need to stop light less than the other cokin that reduces 3 stops or when you need to combine it with another filter in order to reduce light from a different direction, this is the filter to have.

                A neccessity to use in certain situations. I find the G2 better than the G1 if you need one for all around use. Scratches easy, so need to be careful with it.

                                Its a decent filter for the prize.
                                Does its job as intended.
                                Filter looks extremely cheap, almost like a cheap window of a chinese made toy bus... but the box looks more expensive then the filter ... in fact the box is made of really good durable platsic material and looks elegent. I think Cokin needs to spend more money on the glass even if it means giving cheaper or no box.
                                The filter definately looks rediculously cheap on my L glass but at the moment I am willing to spend only this much as I need to learn more about using filters correctly. Once I get good at it, I will definately buy better quality filters. I would recommend it only for those who have entry level lenses or if you are like me who wants to learn first before spending extra on better filters.

                                    Cokin Graduated Gray ND filters are my favorite for the price. I've tried Hitech but was not completely happy with them. I guess I just expected more cause I paid more.....my bad. I assume I would have to make the jump to the really pricy ones for a noticeable improvement. (Just a guess)
                                    But I don't think I would grab the expensive ones anyway. I tend to work fast(rush) and as a result my filters get abused. Cheap ones are easier to replace.

                                    Great for balancing skies or overexposed parts of your image. Its hard to use with out the holder on wide angles i get my fingers in there sometimes on the 16-35mm L. It does scratch easily because its plastic, and im sure it effects the image quality somewhat. Its also common to get lens flares since you cant use your lens hood. Its a small sacrafice to make. Id recomend getting a darker one also for bright sunny days, this one is great for balancing sunsets. Overall worth it to have in your bag of tricks, plus if you shoot film, you need it!!!!!!! Sometimes it tricks your metering system so be careful when metering using your camera.
