It's not the camera you need to worry about, it's the lens.


If steroids are illegal for athletes, should PS be illegal for models?

It will fit lenses with this filter thread size: 49mm 52mm 55mm 58mm 62mm 67mm 72mm 77mm 82mm.

Look at the front of your lens to see what size it is.

Also.... Keep in mind, you get what you pay for. These filters are just going to act as a toy and will more than likely degrade your image quality.

Screw-on graduated neutral density filters are virtually useless in my opinion. You cannot change where the change from light-to-dark is to match your composition.

I agree with Skip. The screw on filters are great for ND and CPLs.... but GND filters really need to be a slide in filter so you have control over them. Lee filters are great and well worth the money :).

I also agree with SkipD on this also. Grad ND FIlters (Rentangular size) and not the screw on type are the way to go.

Cokin filters are fine; just be sure that the package includes the HOLDER as well as the filter(s) and adapter ring(s). Then, you just need to be sure that one of the adapter rings you're getting matches the front filter size of your lens(es).

Cokin filters are fine;

Only problem is, the filters he/she is looking at are Cokin compatible, not made by Cokin. So, imho, they're probably junk.

I see that now; you're probably correct.

You will be disappointed with these filters. Good filters that are easy to use and improve, not degrade, your images cost money.
