Cokin introduce 100mm Z-Pro Series Filter-holder - After many years of R&D and following the success of their X-PRO Series System, Cokin are introducing a new Z-PRO Filter Holder (100mm width).
The new Z-PRO Filter-Holder is designed to fit both FILM and DIGITAL technologies in particular D-SLRs and VIDEO/ BROADCAST cameras, either semi-professional or professional models (among them the new HD format).
It is modular, it can be easily dismantled and set-up to be able to accept filters of 1.6mm thickness (which most photographers use), and 4.0mm thickness (often used in the Broadcast segment in popular dimensions such as 100x100mm (4x4) and 100x150mm (4x6in)).
To prevent the risk of vignetting (dark edges around the picture), the Z-PRO series filter-holder is fully reversible, which means that a filter can fit in the adaptor rings slot and vice-versa. Therefore the filter can be positioned very close to the lens and the edges of the holder are no longer an obstacle in the field of view.
Eliminates vignetting over 20mm focal lengths
The Z-PRO filter-holder was tested (in the standard 2mm 3-slot version) and proved no vignetting on focal lengths down to 20mm (based on 35mm format) but of course, this can go further wide in the reversed one/two slots configuration.
Fits lenses up to 96mm filter diameter
Perfect performance with DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY
|Reminder on the Z-PRO range
The Z-PRO filter range is made of organic glass with a very high optical transmission. It includes over 90 different filters designed to satisfy the needs of Pro Photographers and Videographers including Correction/Conversion filters, Graduated filters, filters for Black & White, Soft filters, Neutral Density filters, etc.
The Z-PRO range also includes a storage wallet for 5 filters (ref. Z306) and two filter kits with graduated filters selected from the most widely used versions:
