Is the cast consistent that is easy enough to adjust out through presets with something like lightroom, or is it highly variable in intensity based on what you're shooting?

ah shoot, well if I don't like them I can just return them. Do you of any who don't have any color cast?


The ones I have now don't have any but I don't know the brand, they were just generics from amazon.


If it's easily fixable in post then no real problem(I have LR and PS)

The cast on mine is consistent but the amount of color cast varies depending on how many stops the GND is (the regular HiTech ND filters, except the 10 stop one, don't seem to have as bad of a color cast for some reason). The more stops the more color cast there is. When I stacked a couple 2 and 3 stop GND's I had to work at correcting it but it was correctable

The Cokin filters I've seen have had even worse color cast then the HiTech one.

^^ Was it Cokin original or one of those cheap ones made for Cokin?

It was not one of the chinese rip offs marketed as Cokin (from what I've read those things are just a joke with how bad they can be). It was a physical cokin filter (2 actually). After trying them out I almost didn't go with the Cokin P holder at all till I found out that HiTech also made P size ND and GND's and that did not have as much of a color cast.

I'm sure even the cokin color cast could be corrected in post but at that time my understanding of editing software was so limited I did not want to mess with any color cast.

What can be done about sunglares when shooting sunrises/sunsets since you can't attach a lens shade?

My Cokin P grads and NDs do not produce any color cast. I love them; they work great!
