Cokin Filter

Hi

Please advice me on my ideas of acquiring polarising and ND filters.
My idea is to have one set for all of my lens line up (currently I have only 2 with filter size of 49 and 72)

This is why i now decided to settle for the cokin filter system. All that I know from reading and researching is that I need 3 components in place to make it work.
1. Filter Holder
2. Adapter ring to hold it
3. then the filters

All I am confused now is about a common adapter ring that can fit in both these lens sizes (or anything in the future). I am thinking, if I am not screwing it into the filter threads then the only option would be to get a universal adapter ring to screw it outside the lens barrenl, not sure if this is the right way and if not let me know what I should be getting and the model numbers.

thanks

then is the filter holder same for both sizes? in other words, just buying a Pseries holder will work with both 49 & 72 adapter ring ?

Secondly, are these filters coming as a set of filters or single, for example ND filters of different stops?

last but not least, is there a listing in your store that has all the 3 in one listing?

Hello,

Yes, the 1 "P" size filter holder is then used on all "P" adapter rings.

Cokin P size filters come in both sets and standalone packages from several manufacturers.
