Cokin screw-on filters...where?

I'm looking for some specific Cokin screw-on filters. These are readily available in Europe, but I'll be d_mned if I can find them in the US. Does anyone know a good European site which specializes in a good Cokin filter selection? Thanks

You got somethin' against Tiffen, Frank?

Here's the Cokin distributors for US and UK: http://www.cokin.fr/ico9-p11.html -- back button on this page cycles back alphabetically by country. Hope this helps,

Tiffen doesn't make a Sunsoft filter. I got mine at www.kurtscameracorral.com....it was a special order.

Thanks. I do know about the Cokin.fr site. I have nothing against the Tiffen line.... I think Tiffen's Black Pro Mist 3 is just dandy. However, I need a few Cokins for a certain "look." A 43mm screw-on Sunsoft is one of them. At Leo's Photo (Vancouver), they only have the A and P size which require "the box;" and Minolta is the Canadian distributor and do not bring in much of the screw-on Cokins.

And with Tiffens, the thread size starts at 49mm, so I'd have to get a step-up ring. The Black Pro Mist 3 is also back-ordered 11 months up here. (Tiffen can't keep up with the demand.)

color correction

Howdy from Southeast Asia,

I think it will be better if you will just edit/color correct it using an nle software(premiere,after effects or ulead mediastudio pro).

Filters sometimes creates videonoise.


Hope it helps.

I don't edit via NLE. I try to shoot not to edit, or shoot to edit via in camera or VCR. (Okay, sometimes I use my buddy's editing setup.)

Thanks! That is a good link. But I already have this link posted on my links page, and I've yet to hear back from Adorama (it's been almost 5 days now since I e-mailed them). I'm afraid I'll just have to order these from somewhere in Europe next week.

PS: I'm going to get Cokin screw-on filters, not the A or P size which require an adaptor. Many people are not aware that Cokin makes many of their filters with threads, and in many sizes - unlike Tiffen which start at 49mm.

Hi Frank,

Cokin is a French company, here's their web site http://www.cokin.fr/ . There is some good info their. If you describe your dilema they may ship you direct or purpose and alternate source for your filters.

Merci. Yes, thanks. I know their website. Maybe I'll e-mail them to ask them where I can get them. That was my next plan of action. On another note, I wanted to buy a polarizer today for one of my cams, and no one open (long week-end) had one in 37mm. Oh, well. I'll have to hit downtown on Tuesday (15 minute bus trip).

Frank, you haven't heard back from Adorama yet? I need to get on the phone Monday morning and tell Barry Zilberschlag to get cracking on his e-mail.

No, I haven't heard back. I e-mailed 3 times. That was a week ago. Go figure. I didn't know you knew the owner.

Okay. He just got back to me. He doesn't carry the screw-on Cokin line at all. Here in Vancouver, only some are brought in, but not the ones I want. I'm going to try cameraaction.com.au in Australia, to see if they carry them. If not there, I'll have to brush up on my French---no worries, it's my second language (English is my 3rd).

Update: the screw-on line is not imported into Australia. Too bad, Aussies!

Still waiting to hear back from cokin.fr

They don't even sell their full line in the UK. Strange, I say.
