Cokin Filter System
Cokin creative Filter system consists of a range of colors and functionality which are held into place in front of the lens by a holder attached to a threaded adapter ring.
The filter holder allows the user to slide various camera filters into place and even stack filters together. This holder is then attached to the lens via a threaded ring with a diameter to match the filter thread of the lens.
Of all the square filter and rectangular filter systems available these days, the best known is the Cokin Creative Filter System. Launched in France by photographer Jean Coquin in 1972, Cokin’s reputation stretches around the world. Cokin's images can be found on the pages of every magazine known to man and have enhanced wedding albums, corporate annual reports, travel brochures and amateur bookshelf vacation shots.

Cokin Photographic Filters; creative camera filter system
The Cokin camera filters system is, basically, broken down in to four filter-holder systems—each one getting progressively larger in its size and serving a different set of needs and, often, a different type of camera. The systems are: “A”, “P”, “X- Pro” and “Z-Pro.” Keep in mind that the Cokin system, all down the line, is “backwards compatible.” You can use a larger system on a smaller camera for added flexibility. However, choosing which holder in the Cokin system to purchase can be confusing. Therefore, how do you decide which one to select?
