    Recommended Filter holder for HAsselblad

    Hi there !

    I am going to Iceland in 10 days with my 503CX Hassy. I have 3 lenses for the trip CF T* 50, 80 and 150 with B60 filter mount. I would like to invest in a filter holder system that is not too cumberstone to travel with. My thoughts now are Cokin P series... But isn't it too tight for the CF50 ? Is there any risks of vignetting ? Otherwise, the Z-PRO series should be fine... But I would like to here your feedbacks about the system you are using. Maybe something else I haven't even thought of could suits my need ?

    Best regards
    Vincent

    I'm sorry but I don't have specifically used Hasselblad V systems.
    However I have experience with Cokin-P, Cokin-Z and Cokin X-Pro.
    My advice is to buy the biggest system you ever think you will need in the first place.
    I started with P then bought a few Z and now need X-Pro for my 50mm Lens for my GX680.
    My comment would be that you should perhaps go with Cokin Z if you don't plan something
    in the future and need still bigger filters.

    Why Z ? Because you can use Lee 100mm resin filters and Haida 100mm Glass filters.
    If you have not investigated the Chinese Haida 100mm filters I think you should. The Haida
    filter holder is cheaper than Cokin Z and the glass filters are way better quality than any resin
    or polyester filter (Cokin and Lee). Especially ND64-ND1000 and grad ND:s are better when made
    of optical glass (You almost get Schneider Kreuznach quality). However If you need color filters
    you should get Cokin filters because Haida does not produce color filters.

    Z systems are most versatile and you can mix & match.

    If you need bayonet mount for Hasselblad lenses I think you have to get a Cokin or Lee filter holder because Haida only provides screw thread adapter rings.

    Of course you can buy Cokin Z filters now and sometime get the Haida glass.
