Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
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. 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. The Cokin P Filter-Holder is the ideal Cokin Filter-Holder to avoid vignetting on APS and full frame lenses for digital cameras. Up to three filters can be used to create a unique effect.

Upsides, it's easy to use more than one filter to get different effects, the holder will take up to three each in their own slot.
Downside, you have to be very careful not to get finger marks on the filters. Also on occasions I find that the holder can take some getting off a lens, it turns (it's supposed to) so you have to `jam' your fingers into the front of the lens to get some purchase if you have `inadvertently' over tightened onto the lens.
You'll need patience when using Cokin but it will be the best system and best buy for your photography.
I would highly recommend!
It is fairly small in size and therefore on a wide angle lens you may see the edge of the filter holder in your photos.
For the price, and if likely to only use a few times a year, it's fine. I purchased one of these to use with Hitech filters as the Lee system was very difficult to get at the time.
Because the filter holder is designed to turn on the adaptor ring it can be difficult to remove from the lens and I would suggest using a UV filter on the lens and fit the holder / adaptor ring to this and also have a filter wrench in your camera bag.
The four star rating does take account of the price, it is cheap and does the job it is designed for. If using filters on a regular basis then in my view it is worth looking at the Lee filter system but expect to pay much more and (currently) to have a long wait for some filters.
I do agree that it can be a little difficult to keep the filters clean, but other than that I would say these are easier, quicker, and less fiddly than the usual screw in filters. The trick is to just leave the holder on the lens (perhaps not permanently, but certainly while you are out).
Then adding a filter is just a case of sliding it in, so no harder than screwing a filter in.
Regarding taking the holder off, this is easy enough. In most cases (though perhaps not on the bigger filter sizes) you should be able to grip and turn the adapter.
Note: if you have anything wider than a standard zoom, you may want the wide holder instead.
Note 2: some people wonder whether to get a polariser for the cokin system, or to use a standard screw in one. I bought a hoya screw in one. When I went out photographing landscapes, on my own, with my tripod, this worked really well with the coking holder than screwed into that. However, when I went out with my girlfriend, and was alternating between taking snap shots, sometimes in low light (not wanting polariser) and taking landscapes, it was a pain switching over. So if you will consistently want the polariser, the hoya may be better (I've heard they are better than cokin) but otherwise getting a cokin polariser might be more convenient.
Finally, I also agree with the other reviewer who preferred the Hitech filters to the cokin ones.
