Cokin Snap! Starter Kit £24, $74

NPhoto - - Test Team - www.cokin.co.uk

This cute lit­tle kit is ideal if you’ve got a Nikon 1 and fancy ex­per­i­ment­ing with fil­ters. The kit can be specced with adap­tor rings be­tween 37mm and 52mm to suit most CSC lenses, as well as some en­try-level D-SLR kit lenses.

Two fil­ters are in­cluded. A soft grad­u­ated warm­ing fil­ter helps cre­ate bal­anced sun­set ex­po­sures, although you’d get more colour con­trol by us­ing a grad­u­ated neu­tral den­sity fil­ter and tweak­ing tones later in soft­ware. There’s also a reg­u­lar ND4 fil­ter that’s more ver­sa­tile, let­ting you blur mov­ing sub­jects with no no­tice­able colour cast­ing.

Both fil­ters are from Cokin’s ex­ten­sive A-Se­ries range that in­cludes over 140 fil­ter types, so you’ll have no trou­ble ex­pand­ing the kit. A three-slot holder en­ables some multi-fil­ter cre­ativ­ity.
