    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.
