LEE100 Filter Holder
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.
Lee 0.6 Neutral Density Graduated Medium Filter
This filter helps to balance exposure when working in high-contrast situations. It is specifically designed to selectively control brightness in difficult lighting. The filter's design places the 0.6, 2-stop density at the top of the filter and then transitions to clear by the centre or the filter for a gradual, natural appearance. The medium-edge transition between the density and clear areas is well-suited for photographing scenes with an apparent but not rigid horizontal line, such as when mountains or trees protrude into the sky.
Lee 0.9 Neutral Density Graduated Hard Filter
This 0.9 neutral density graduated hard filter can be applied to darken bright skies, specifically during a sunrise or sunset, while allowing for a normal, unaffected exposure in other regions of the image. This filter achieves its effect with a 0.9 band of density above its centre region that provides up to a 3-stop reductions in light from entering the lens. This band extends in both vertical direction which tapers to approximately a 0.3 density and a 1-stop reduction in light at the edge above it. Directly below the 0.9 band of density, it tapers to clear, with a hard-edged line of transition before the clear area.
Lee 1.2 Neutral Density Graduated Filter
This 1.2 neutral density filter can be applied to darken bright skies, specifically during a sunrise or sunset, while allowing for a normal, unaffected exposure in other regions of the image. This filter achieves its effect with a 1.2 band of density above its centre region that provide up to a 4-stop reduction in light from entering a lens. This band extends in both vertical directions which tapers to approximately a 0.6 density and a 2-stop reduction in light at the edge above it. Directly below the 1.2 band of density, it tapers to clear, with a hard-edged line of transition before the clear area.
The Big Stopper is a neutral density filter that reduces the amount of light entering your lens by ten stops. By greatly extending exposure times the Big Stopper has the effect of allowing anything that is moving in your image to become blurred or ghost like, for example clouds, waterfalls, rivers, and the sea. The filter can also be used on cityscapes to blur people or on roads and motorways to blur traffic.
It’s never been easier to fit a polarising filter. With the new LEE100 Polariser, all you need to do is clip it into the receiving slot on the LEE100 holder and snap it into place. It remains securely attached until the photographer is ready to remove it.
It has been constructed using a new lightweight, high-transmission polariser glass, with a subtle warm tone to help intensify natural colours, it features an integral ring with two clips and simply snaps onto the front of the LEE100 filter holder, allowing you to use it in conjunction with all your favourite filters.
