Pocket-sized and compact digital cameras don't usually have a filter thread, so how can filters be attached to them? Cokin, the inventor of the Creative Filter System and leading filter manufacturer, have come up with an ingenious solution: the Cokin Magnetic System.

Following the ever-growing success of Digital technology, Cokin is launching a magnetic version of the very famous Series "A" Filter Holder. The unbelievable Magnetic Filter System solves all your attachment problems, allowing you to create special effects "as in the movies" with basically all cameras.

This innovative "Magnetic Holder" sticks easily by "magnetism" via a self-adhesive metallic ring to those lenses without thread and which couldn't accept filters up to now. The Filter Holder is then firmly attached onto the ring and you can now enjoy the full use of the famous Cokin Creative Filter System on your compact-type digital camera or camcorder.

Got a compact type Digital Camera or a small Camcorder? Without a screw thread on the lens, you can't screw any filters on it? You can with the Cokin Magnetic Filter Holder System.
With this Magnetic Holder, the Cokin System will now be compatible with almost all types of digital cameras or camcorders in the market.
Full tests have shown that the Magnetic System can be used safely on a Digital camera or camcorder without magnetic or electronic interference, neither for your camera nor for your memory card.

      Comments about Cokin Magnetic Filter Holder ("A" Series):

      I had been trying to jury-rig a filter such as this one when I came across this product on the Internet. It turns out to be everything as advertised. However, the small ring that is onto your camera front around the lens is only acceptable if your camera is totally flat. Luckily, at least 1 of my cameras has this feature. The other cameras are curved in this area and the ring simply will not stay on. Therefore, I am in the process of constructing a universal mount onto which the curved cameras may be screwed. Two metal bars stick up from the base and the magnetic filter holder sticks to this metal even better than to the original rings. This is a superior product, especially for the small amount of money to purchase. And regardless of your camera surface, a means of attachment will give you flawless results. - RZ

      Comments about Cokin Magnetic Filter Holder ("A" Series):

      Great idea and almost perfect execution. The Cokin series A magnetic filter holder did an excellent job. However, under extreme temperatures and conditions, the glue on ring did not hold. I was using the camera for video, so there was lots of movement. If it had been used in a still environment, I probably would've been satisfied. A simple application of crazy glue would have fixed my problem. Just make sure you are prepared for a permanent fix. Filters slid in and out with ease. It also allows use of multiple filters if you need to polarize and still add some ND.

      Comments about Cokin Magnetic Filter Holder ("A" Series):

      Great: an adapter that can apply filters to point-and-shoot cameras.
      Many effects can be created in post-processing software, except, in my opinion, the polarization filter effects. I would not screw up the looks of an expensive say Leica D-Lux 4 with a glued-on ring on a non-magnetic camera housing. Besides, many glues lose their strength at higher temperatures and may come off. I'll wait until a filter holder is offered, that simply screws into the tripod mount.
