Product Highlights
  • Filter Holder for P-Sized Filters
  • Requires Additional Adapter Ring

The Cokin Creative Filter System consists of a rectangular plastic filter holder with four slots (one for Cokin rotating filters and three for rectangular ones), a variety of optional adapter rings which click into place and rotate, and many optical resin filters.

There are two Cokin sizes, "A" & "P". The "A" series is adequate for 35mm cameras and camcorders and fits filter sizes from 36-62mm. The "P" series covers diameters from 48-82mm and is generally preferred for everything, particularly wide angle lenses. Over 100 filters and a wide range of accessories are available for each system, i.e. modular lens hoods, lens caps, and storage boxes.

    First you attach the Cokin adapter ring to the camera (separate items). Then you slide the Cokin filter holder onto the adapter ring. After that you can slide your filter(s) into one or more of the 4 slots on the Cokin filter holder. The Cokin filter holder is made of lightweight black plastic-like material that allows you to bend it slightly back so you can slip the holder on and off the adapter ring. Via the ring, the holder is firmly held onto your lens, but it can also rotate freely so that whatever filter you are using with it, say a graduated neutral density, can match a diagonal mountain horizon, if necessary. The filters slide freely up and down through it for proper placement, but I've never felt they could slip out. There is room for 4 filters in the holder. I haven't done that, and I imagine it might get tricky. It is a simple tool that does what it is supposed to do.

    The filter holder has a slot inside the 1st dedicated filter slot (nearest your lens) that one may try to slide their filter into. If you aren't very careful, the result will be a resin filter with a vicious scratch. I think this is a design flaw - the "A" series holder is made the same way. Otherwise, the holder works as advertised.

        Comments about Cokin P-Series Filter Holder:

        I had previously tried to save some money by purchasing a cheap P Series Style Filter Holder. It did not accomodate the P Series Circular Polarizing filter because all the slots were the same size. The genuine Cokin P Series Filter holder has a wider first slot to accomodate the circular polarizing filter. This filter holder works perfectly.

                This adapter works fine for most of my uses which are 35mm and 4 x 5 film camera lenses. You need to watch out though with wide angle lenses as you might get some vignetting (there is a "slim mount" version for that).

                Cokin Fitler Holder is total value for money and more. Its made of durable plastic, looks elegent and does not in anyway reflect its low cost. This is a MUST have filter holder for anyone using square/rectangular filters. I wish Cokin made filters that could match the quality of this holder. What's great about this filter holder is that you can use it for several other better branded / top quality filters. I was very fortunate to have bought what seemed like the very last piece in B&H stock ... coz I tried ordering 2 and the system wouldn't allow me ... so I also bought Cokin BPW400 Wide Angle Filter Holder for P Series. I don't think there is another product out there that can match the value of this filter holder.

                Comments about Cokin P-Series Filter Holder:

                The filter holder works well generally. The filters fit in easily but also stay in place once they are positioned. The holder is lightweight plastic and does not take up much room, though the filters and boxes they are in can be a bit bulky.

                The filter holder can be a bit fiddly to use, especially with the circular polarizer. It can be difficult to slide the polarizer out while the filter holder is attached to the lens, but having the polarizer in the holder makes the holder stiffer, making it more difficult to slide the holder off of the lens ring. The circular polarizer can also be a bit difficult to insert into the holder, and to rotate it in the holder.

                I also had some issues with using multiple filters simultaneously causing the camera's exposure metering and auto white balance to be less accurate than without the filters.

                But, overall, the product worked well and the various pieces fit together well.

                  Comments about Cokin P-Series Filter Holder:

                  The Cokin P filter holder is sturdy and well constructed. Filters will fit snugly in the sprocket and filter holders. Do not substitute with third party or cheaper filter holders because many are not constructed adequately to hold the filters. I learned this from experience. Cokin holders are constructed well from France.

                    Comparing with a rotating ND filter with this one you have more space to adjust the intensity of ND by moving it up or down on your filter holder.
                    I think it is easy to scratch it, cause is made of plastic, not glass.

                      I have used the Cokin System for years. It has paid dividends as well in my digital photography. The ability to stack filters is a HUGE plus. I have stacked three filters in succession to slow down the speed for landscape photos on occasion. Some filters are obsoleted by digital processing, but CPs, NDs, blue graduals and ND graduals just can't be replaced by software.

                          Comments about Cokin P-Series Filter Holder:

                          First you attach the Cokin adapter ring to the camera (separate items). Then you slide the Cokin filter holder onto the adapter ring. After that you can slide your filter(s) into one or more of the 4 slots on the Cokin filter holder. The Cokin filter holder is made of lightweight black plastic-like material that allows you to bend it slightly back so you can slip the holder on and off the adapter ring. Via the ring, the holder is firmly held onto your lens, but it can also rotate freely so that whatever filter you are using with it, say a graduated neutral density, can match a diagonal mountain horizon, if necessary. The filters slide freely up and down through it for proper placement, but I've never felt they could slip out. There is room for 4 filters in the holder. I haven't done that, and I imagine it might get tricky. It is a simple tool that does what it is supposed to do.
