Series Filter Holder

Series Filter Holder
Cokin Filters A & P series is one replacing the other?

I have a Fuji S9600 and was recently given a Cokin A Series Filter Holder and some filters which I have enjoyed using. I put a ND2 Graduated filter on my birthday list and when Hubby went out to get it today the helpful person in the camera shop said that Cokin A series is no longer being produced and offered him a P series starter kit instead.

I have also heard that the A series filters also fit the P series filter if you use an additional adapter.

Any way I am now completely confused as to whether I should stick with my A series set or change to a P series .

Incidentally the Fuji S9600 has a 28-300mm lens and the A series doesn’t quite work with the camera when set at the shortest focal length, basically the lens picks up part of the filter in the shot, it only disappears when the lens is set at around 35 mm.

Gosh I hope what I have just written makes sense to someone!

Makes perfect sense. To my knowledge, Cokin is not discontinuing the A series (amateur). The A series is ideal for smaller Digital Cameras. For SLR and DSLR, you want to get either the P series (professional) or X-Pro series (if using really wide angles on a full frame body.)

As you mentioned, the A series is designed for focal lengths of 35mm or greater, so a P series filter is probably better for your camera.

Yes there is an adapter for P to A. It is Cokin P249.

Carmen: For a filter like a graduated/split Neutral Density Filter, a Cokin or Singh-Ray filter is the way to go. These are also high quality filters.
