The Super Stopper is a neutral density filter that reduces the light entering your lens by 15 stops.
The LEE Super Stopper gives the photographer an opportunity to shoot during the middle of the day, even in bright sunlight. Traditionally, such conditions were considered unfavourable for photography, because of the harsh nature of the light. However, with the Super Stopper filter fitted, the softness that arises from any movement contrasts pleasingly with areas of bright light, creating an effect rarely seen in photography before now.
How to use the Big Stopper:
- First compose your image before fitting the Big or Little Stopper.
- Take a meter reading without the filter in place, and set your desired aperture and shutter speed.
- Use the exposure tables to find the correct exposure. Your filter will have come with a printed exposure table.
- With the Super Stopper inserted into the slot nearest the lens, attach the filter holder as usual and make your exposure.
- Always use the sturdiest tripod you can when making long exposures, and take care not to knock the camera or tripod. Cover your viewfinder before releasing the shutter to avoid light encroaching onto the sensor or film and causing flare.
The Super Stopper can be used in conjunction with other filters such as Neutral Density Graduated Filters.
Other filters should be set up and positioned in the filter holder as normal before using the Big or Little Stopper, remembering to keep the slot in the filter holder nearest the lens free for the Big or Little Stopper.
