NX-SERIES 100mm Filter Holder System

Photography filter manufacturer Cokin has introduced a new NX-SERIES Filter System specifically for wide-angle lenses such as the popular 16-35mm zoom.

The NX-SERIES filter holder is made from premium aluminium, is lightweight/compact and can also be used with Nuances filters as well as Cokin L-size adapter rings and other 100mm filters made by other manufacturers.

 

NX-SERIES System Features: 

  • 100mm wide filter-holder system with protective frames, optimised for wide-angle lenses such as 16-35mm zooms
  • Compatible with COKIN NUANCES Extreme filters in L size and 100mm filters with 2mm thickness, made by other manufacturers
  • The dedicated NX-SERIES polarising filter has a slim mount and only absorbs 1 f-stop
  • Premium design, manufactured in CNC precision-machined aluminium
  • Compatible with COKIN CREATIVE adapter rings in L size, available from 49mm to 95mm

The NX-SERIES system is available in 5 different kits:

  • Starter Kit: Includes filter-holder, polarising filter, one frame 100x100mm, one frame 100x143.5mm. This kit is ideal for users owning some NUANCES Extreme filters. SRP is £225.

One reverse-graduated filter R-GND8 (max 3-stops) and a brand new graduated neutral density filter with a “Hard” transition of 3-stops max.

NX-SERIES 100mm Filter Holder System

From Holdan: 

Holdan, a specialist distributor to the professional video, broadcast and photography sector, has today announced the long-awaited arrival of Cokin’s new NX-SERIES 100mm filter system. It is exclusively distributed by them in the UK and Ireland.

COKIN has been developing creative filter-holders and systems since their invention by founder, Jean Coquin back in 1978. Since then, millions of professional and amateur photographers and videographers have been able to explore the creative possibilities offered by these systems.

The 100mm-wide filter format has become Cokin’s most popular size since its launch in 2005 and the radical new NX-SERIES holder system allows 100mm filters to be used on ultra-wide-angle lenses of 14mm, or wider in some cases. The filter-holder is made from premium aluminium and is both compact and lightweight.

T he NX-SERIES filter holder system is compatible with Cokin Nuances Extreme filters, Nuances Clearsky and Infrared IR720, as well as COKIN adapter rings in ‘L’ size (also known as Z-Pro). COKIN has also extended compatibility to 100mm filters made by other manufacturers, provided they have a common thickness of 2mm.

 

NX-SERIES 100mm Filter Holder System

 

The NX-SERIES filter-holder uses metal frames which has enabled COKIN to increase the angle of view of the filter-holder and consequently reduce the risk of vignetting, even with ultra-wide lenses. These frames are available in 3 sizes:

  • 100x100mm (for square filters)
  • 100x143.5mm (for Nuances Extreme graduated filters)
  • 100x150mm (for graduated filters from other manufacturers)

The metallic frames offer additional protection to the filters and allow easy handling, even when wearing gloves. The NX-SERIES filter-holder uses ball-bearings which exert gentle pressure to guide the frames in their slots, for smooth and precise operation.

The NX-SERIES has a dedicated polarising filter which is placed closest to the lens and can be rotated precisely using the adjustment wheel integrated into the filter-holder, regardless of the orientation of the holder. Recessed areas in the filter-holder are provided for easy insertion and extraction of the polarising filter using gentle simple pressure. The NX-SERIES polarising filter is highly efficient and only absorbs 1 f-stop of light. It is provided with an individual protective pouch.
