    Do yourself a favor and shoot some comparison shots with/without those filters. Cokin doesn't much of a reputation for quality filters, they're more known for price. A subpar filter can have a noticeable impact on your image clarity, so if you could post some side-by-side shots with/without I'm sure many people would be interested in seeing how the Cokin system interacts with an HD camcorder.

    I tend to shop below the Cokin line, just because cash is tight. I wasn't aware that there was that big a difference in the image though.

    Hey Barry- How do you feel about the Z Pro filter holder?

    I bought a few cokins when I was first starting out, but I've since come to the conclusion that the only thing that goes in front of my lens is the absolute highest-quality filters I can get my hands on, so I haven't bothered to try the Cokin Z series. I pretty much stick with Schneider.

    I was asking specifically about the holder, not the filters. It looks like a cool idea, really affordable too... but it also looks like it would leak light like a sieve.

    Ah, gotcha. Leaking light is really bad because if struck by direct light from behind or whatever, that'll introduce reflections and flare.

    So you also think that might be a problem with the Z Pro filter holder? What about you Pixelator? Have you tried it yet?

    I haven't used the Z Pro -- I'm just saying that if it's got exposed areas where light can hit the filter, that can introduce problems.

    Pixelator?

    For most people, adjusting a BF on a HD100 is impossible without a good monitor. You using a monitor?

    Brian, I'm not using a monitor, but I'm beginning to believe your comment. I could use one of the ones I have at home, but it would be pointless if I break the camera down to transport? I don't have anything portable to use.
