Cokin has announced the NX-Series, a new 100mm filter holder system, price tag from £99.99, designed for wide-angle lenses and long exposures.
The Cokin NX-Series filter holder is made from aluminium, making it lightweight as well as compact. The NX-Series system is compatible with Cokin’s NUANCES Extreme filters, NUANCES Clearsky and Infrared IR720 filters, as well as Cokin’s adapter rings.
What’s more, Cokin has made the NX-Series filter holder compatible with 100mm filters made by other manufacturers (provider they are 2mm thick).
Other features of the NX-Series filter-holder uses ball-bearings which exert gentle pressure to guide the frames in their slot, for smooth and precise operation.
The NX-Series is available in three sizes: 100x100mm (for square filters); 100×143.5mm (for NUANCES) and 100x150mm (for other manufacturers’ filters).
