Cokin Filter Holders


Is it possible to use Cokin filters size A with a wide-angle lens? Thanks.

  It depends on the diameter of the lens. With my 4x5 camera, the Cokin size "A" will work just fine. The filter thread size of my largest lens is 49mm - therefore, the size "A" will work just fine. However, my 19mm lens for my 35mm system has a 77mm filter size - so a size "A" will not work without vignetting. The best "all-around" size is the "P" system (that's my opinion only). It'll work on every one of my 35mm, MF, and LF system lenses. Also, the cost is within reach of most photographers, and there are a wide variety of filters for that size made by other manufacturers.
