Quote: Cokin is in the process of being taken over by Hoya (according to Jessops last weekend). They are becoming increasingly difficult to get as I also found out at the weekend! I am looking to replace my Cokin soft grads with Hitech which look pretty good. My Cokin filters scratched very easily as they are a type of resin and have now become unusable.

My experience may be quite old now, but I found Hitek a good upgrade for cokin.

The 82mm Hitek filters will fit into the Cokin P holder, but they are a Tight fit.

to prevent scratches, invest in a padded cloth pouch - I always found the plastic boxes Cokin supply actively scratch the filter.

I'd heard the same thing at Bristol Camera's a while ago........I must admit the Hitek filters I have do seem to be of very good quality, not that I'd know what was a good quality filter if it hit me on the end of the nose!

I use a soft CD pouch with cloth inserts, and which holds about a dozen CD's to hold my Cokin filters. Works for me and keeps them clean and safe. Think it was a freebie from some car company, so no idea where to get another like it. Not looked.

Have a look at, (Premier Ink & Photographic) web site. For filter systems.

Very competitive pricing, plus they give excellent customer service. Wink

Take care.
