Cokin X-Pro B+W Kit Includes:
- P001 Yellow Filter
- P002 Orange Filter
- P003 Red Filter
- P004 Green Filter
Please note that the filter holder and adapter rings are not included and need to be purchased separately.
P001 Yellow Filter:
In landscape photography and B&W mode, the Yellow filter improves the contrasts between clouds and sky. For portrait, it lightens the faces and blonde hair at the same time as it softens freckles.
P002 Orange Filter:
Cokin's orange filter increases the contrasts between reds and yellows. It darkens the skies, accentuates clouds and strongly subdues ambient light. For architecture photography, it helps to bring out the texture of the monuments’ stones.
P003 Red Filter
The red filter is great for creating extreme contrasts, especially in the sky for landscapes.
P004 Green Filter
The green is often used in landscape photography and B&W mode because it lightens the nature and especially the greenery scenes (forests, fields etc)
Introduction to the Cokin Filters
There are 4 different sizes of filters to choose from: A series / P series / Z-Pro professional series and X-Pro professional series. The Cokin X-PRO Series has been specially designed for medium and large format cameras as well as wide-angle lenses and is recommended for focal lengths from 15mm onwards (35mm format). This Series is also well adapted to prosumer and professional video cameras. It fits a large variety of lenses thanks to a range of adaptor rings covering the popular diameters up to 118mm.

How the Cokin System works
The Cokin Creative Filter System consists of three main components: A filter holder / Adapter ring and a Filter.
1. Screw the adapter ring onto your lens.
2. Slide the filter holder on the adapter ring until it snaps in place. The filter holder is now solidly attached to the lens, yet it can rotate both left and right.
3. Slide the filter into one of the filter holder slots. The one closest to the filter holder housing is the narrowest; it allows the use of round filters with notched edges (polarizer, star filters..). The two central slots are intended for square filters. The outer slot can be used either for an additional filter or for a coupling ring.
