Cokin A filters for Polaroid Land Camera

There are not too many kinds of filters provided by Polaroid for land 100~400 cameras which using peel-apart films.
As far as I know, only orange filter for B/W film and some portrait or close-up accessories. Even could been found on eBay, most of them are expensive; compared with other easily accessible filter system.



This time, I’m trying to modify a Cokin series A filter adapter. Plenty used Cokin filter are sold on eBay, sometimes you can get a 5~6 filters set with a pretty reasonable price.

In fact, it’s only little trimming and grinding works to do.

About 10 minutes later, you’ll get a filter adapter which could access whole Cokin filter system except the kind named “center spot” (060~078 etc.) which with central hole on it . Not bad solution, I think!

Here are tools all you need.

When attaching, use little pressure on the plastic adaper as red arrows shown then it will clamp the D/L control and the electric eye.



Done!!



There are over one hundred different kinds of Cokin filters waiting~~

  1. This is brilliant. I've been thinking of a way to use filters on my Auto 250 and this is just perfect, as I have a drawer full of Cokin A filters. Thanks so much for this.

    1. You are welcome!
      Land 250 is a workhorse and easy to use when flash was needed. Compared with 360 or 450, it would provide more light output when filter was attached. Enjoy it!!
