Cokin Introduces EVO 95 mm and 105 mm CPL Filters

Press release date: Aug 25, 2017

Cokin and OmegaBrandess are very excited to introduce the EVO line of Schott Glass, low profile Circular Polarizer filters designed to work with EVO filter holders.

EVO CPL filters are available in 95mm and 105 mm sizes. At only 7.5mm thick, they are very low profile to reduce the possibilities of vignetting, while still maintaining threads on the front side for filter stacking.

The highly resistant tempered glass is German B270 Schott and the rings are aluminum construction with knurled grip. This high quality glass is made even better with the application of EverClear 5 sixteen-layer multi-coating on both sides of the filters. This results in extremely high light transmission and reduced reflections. Light loss is only 45% or approximately 1 f-stop, about half that of the typical CPL filter.

While the EVO CPL filters are an ideal choice for any lens with a 95mm or 105mm filter thread, they are designed to mate with the recently announced EVO Aluminum Filter Holders that provide a threaded front plate together with 2 slots for Cokin’s M (P) size or L (Z) size filters. These holders permit the combined use of the EVO CPL with any of the company’s graduated ND filters including the vaunted Nuances Schott Glass line.

The filters come housed in a hinged hard, round black case for protection and storage.

Also announced is a new EVO Wallet M. Made of EVA, the new EVO Wallet M carries your CREATIVE Filter System safely. Custom cut foam protects the M-sized (P) EVO Filter Holder which is housed in a separate compartment. Contained in the lid is a filter pouch capable of storing up to six CREATIVE or NUANCES filters with a storage space for adapter rings behind. Larger size to follow.
