    Hi Raj!

    I've not used Cokin filters since I abandoned film in 2006.

    I think I'll hang back and let somebody else try 'em first :biggrin: - those things weren't all that cheap even in the 1970's.

    With the post processing now available...I dunno. Maybe...get started using the neutral density set and go from there...

    I dunno :confused:.

    Not sure what exactly is really changing. They changed the name a bit ago (first noticed about 3 months ago), and from what I read, the cases and naming conventions get an overhaul. Nothing else really...

    Cokin was the "Creative Filter System" in the 70s and 80s.

    Meh. I bought one of their expensive filters once. Wasn't impressed with the amount of ghosting so I moved on.

    I ended up going with the Lee Seven5 system instead, it just arrived this week. I like how the nd grad transitions are designed for smaller sensors instead of just smaller cuts of the larger filters. Sadly I haven't had much of a chance to play with it much, work has been a bit hectic, and it's apparently raining on my one off day /sigh.
