This is part of the brand new LEE100 system that is adaptable, intuitive and modular which makes it a game changer for the filter world. This filter holder is fully compatible with all existing LEE 100mm filters and adapter rings.
The LEE100 holder is engineered from injection-moulded composite materials. The holder is sturdy, rigid, durable and 16% lighter than its predecessor. This holder is also fully compatible with all existing LEE 100mm filters and adapter rings.
Spring Release and Locking Ring
All you need to when using this holder is pull on the spring release, which you can operated one-handed, to slot the holder on to the adapter ring.
The blue locking ring has three possible settings, neutral, half lock and full lock.
Neutral: The holder can be rotated and quickly removed.
Half Lock: The holder can be rotated but is locked to the adapter ring and cannot be removed from it.
Full Lock: The holder cannot be rotated, and nor can it be removed from the adapter ring.
Another new feature is the modular filter-guide blocks, which come in one, two or three-slot configurations. Their simplified design means they simply snap onto the holder and remain securely in place until the photographer is ready to remove them. The new tapered profile gives improved resistance when positioning filters.
The new LEE100 system will accept all of the existing lens adaptor rings in both standard and wide angle forms. Please note however, that on rare occasions, due to component tolerances of adaptor rings and LEE100 holders, a tightness of the locking action to the adaptor ring in half lock mode (holder locked to ring but allowed to rotate) may occur. The LEE100 Holder will remain completely useable during this time and will provide a very positive full rotation lock when needed. The LEE100 holder from new will also require a small amount of time to ‘bed-in’ and over time this tightness will loosen off. Importantly, the holder will remain fully secure on the adaptor ring at all times.
