    Anyone use "Kood" filters, look a good price on 7 day shop, thinking of buying a few, possibly dark grey graduated, a tobbaco graduated, 85A and a ND4.

    Reports would be great.

    I have a couple, they are fine. They don't come in a plastic box like Cokin, instead a plastic sleeve thing, but the filters themselves seem fine.

    Having a look on Flickr, your right about the quality of the images, superb, one or two questions

    If you are using a graduated ND and you want to shoot say 2/3rd sky and 1/3rd ground or vice versa how do you do it when the grad runs out at the middle ?

    Also saw a lot of Infra Red shots on Flikr, is that just using an IR filter or do you need special lenses / camera ?

    Cheers

    Bill

    Biscuit761 - cokin 'P' (and therefore kood) filters are rectangular .

    The holder rotates and you can adjust the filter in the holder to adjust where the grad comes in, to a good extent.
