Hi,

I'm looking to get an ND grad filter kit (set of filters, and holder), with the Cokin kits offering what I need, I think - but I can't find them in stock anywhere!

Does anyone know if there is a problem with the supply of these? Also, the general availability of filters from other manufacturers seems to be limited at the moment.

Alternatively, what other options are there (in the same price range and quality) - I want rectangular filters not circular ones.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I wouldn't suggest getting Cokin ND filters - I've heard they're pretty poor quality (I've not used them myself though). The filter holder is fine.

Personally, I use a Cokin holder with Hitech ND grad filters, which are decent quality-wise and not too expensive.
You can get the holder from Jessops, and the filters can be bought from http://teamworkphoto.com/ although you might be able to get them elsewhere too. Not sure.

Great stuff - thanks for the reply.
I've checked them out and they look good - think I'll go for them.

Thanks again.
