for 77mm fit­ting

Cokin’s P-se­ries range of fil­ters is renowned for be­ing sen­si­bly priced and of­fer­ing a wide range of ef­fects, with some 140 creative fil­ters to choose from. Most are square or rec­tan­gu­lar, mea­sur­ing 84mm in width, and mount via a P-se­ries fil­ter holder which costs around £12 ($15). Adap­tor rings are avail­able for lenses with at­tach­ment threads of be­tween 48mm and 82mm, which cost about the same as the fil­ter holder. The P164 cir­cu­lar po­lariser fil­ter has a round de­sign and fits into the rear slot of the holder. A knurled outer edge en­ables easy ro­ta­tion.

The plas­tic holder feels flimsy com­pared with the Formatt-Hitech and Lee Fil­ters hold­ers, but this is re­flected in the price. In our tests, we found a marginally warm colour shift along with a slight mud­di­ness in darker ar­eas.

The fil­ter holder is rel­a­tively ba­sic but en­ables the cir­cu­lar po­lariser to be used with ad­di­tional fil­ters
