The COKIN CREATIVE SYSTEM consists of 3 main components: An Adaptor Ring + A Filter Holder + 1 or more filters.
The COKIN Filter-holder can be precisely adjusted and attached to the lens by means of a screw-in adaptor ring. A change of camera or of lens necessitates only a change of adaptor ring, not the Filter-holder nor the filters.
The COKIN Filter-holder has four grooves. One holds round filters, which can be rotated in the groove. The three others hold square filters which can be adjusted up or down at will.
The Cokin Advantages
• Same filter for all your lenses by just replacing the adaptor ring.

It only works when you have the lens adapter. I am still waiting for this part. So far my entire system is useless because I can't find the adapter ring-ANYWHERE.
I use it to hold Cokin filters. I get good picturs with the filters. It is hard to break the tab off the filter holder. I ruined mine.
