It should perhaps be subtitled: "Second-rate filter manufacturer buys
bankrupt third-rate filter manufacturer".

Still, here's the link for those who get excited about using poor
quality hazy plastic square filters in front of their lenses:

For more discerning photographers who prefer shooting through very
high quality square filters, here are the links to the world's top
manufacturers of these items, both of whom are in good financial
health:

Spending a fortune on things whose effect can be more or less
duplicated in software is a bit odd.
Cokin had its heyday in the 1980s.
