As a professional photographer and extensive user of filters, Jean COQUIN has invented a range of filters which is unique for its quality and diversity. It is important that a filter matches the optical precision of a lens. Definition, contrast and colour reproduction must not be sacrified to creativity. Which is why each COKIN creative filter is made of the material best adapted to the filter's ultimate use. Some filters are made out of organic glass (coloured and graduated filters, etc...) while other are made of mineral glass (polarizing filters, etc ...), yet all undergo strict a quality control at each stage of production and guarantee photographers the quality provided by modern manufacturing technology.
The COKIN range can be classified into several families, the more important being:
Colour filters, including Black and White, Colour Correctors, Neutral Density and UV/Skylight filters; Diffractors and Stars; Centre-Spots, Neutral and coloured;
Pastels and Diffusers; Optical effects including Close-Up, Multi-Parralel and Multi-Images filters; Graduated filters, including standard colours, Sunset and Fluorescent colours;
Polarizers - Neutral and coloured; Special effects such as Rainbow, Double Exposure, etc...
The COKIN filters can be used either individually or combined together which allows a great number of creative possibilities. AND NOW ... BE CREATIVE !!!
