The Lee Starter 2 Filter Set contains several filters and a holder that will help you elevate your outdoor shooting to a higher level.

Filter Holder
The Lee Filter Holder has two slots for two 100mm (4") wide x 2mm thick filters. It can also hold 4x6" (100 x 150mm, 2mm thick) filters.

0.6 Neutral Density Resin Filter (Hard Edge)
Neural Density filters have several uses and offer the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results. They enable the shooter to adjust exposure without affecting color balance. ND filters appear gray and reduce the amount of light reaching the film.

Determining which neutral density filter yields ideal results for any given lighting situation takes knowledge, experience and a collection of such filters. Speaking generally, the 2-stop value (ND 0.6) effectively compensates average situations.

Graduated Coral 3 Resin Filter (Hard Edge)
Coral is a general purpose warming filter which comes in increasing amounts of color temperature correction as the number in the series increases. It is commonly used to produce slightly "orangey" skies. From light to heavy, any effect from basic correction to warmer or cooler than "normal" is possible. Corals can also compensate for the overly cool blue effect of outdoor shade.

The kit includes a handy 15 x 15" cleaning cloth that will help remove any unsightly smudges from your filters. Everything is packed in a durable Cordura nylon storage pouch with compartments. This kit requires a Lee Adapter Ring (sold separately).

Neutral Density Filters Have Four Main Uses

To enable slow shutter speeds to be used, especially with high speed films, to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, or cars
To decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background
To decrease the effective ISO of high speed film (above ISO 400) and allow it to be used outdoors in bright situations
To allow cine and video cameras (which have fixed shutter speeds) to film subjects such as snow, sand or other bright scenes which could cause overexposure

Coral Filter

Coral Filters are used extensively in both still and cinematography to add a touch of "orange" to a scene. They are one of the most commonly used filters in those disciplines and are available in various grades to suit your needs

              Have used it on a couple of hikes. You can have the adapter on the lens and then the rest of it clips in quickly. Mounting the filters themselves takes less than a minute and you can rotate them.
              Using it with a bright sun behind you requires caution. Make sure you first take a test shot without the filter, then change to manual focus and then put the filters on (especially when using ND's)
              The glass filters that come with the kit come covered in paper. I felt funny putting them in the included pouch naked. :) THats just me though.

              Comments about LEE Filters Starter 2 Filter Set:

              I really wanted to use the Lee Big Stopper filter and needed a holder. This "starter" set seemed like the place to start and I'm happy I bought it. I wasn't sure about the coral filter but it really has come in useful, as well as the ND. I now have the Big Stopper and life is good.

              Love the Big Stopper on it. That filter alone makes this investment worth while.

              I am just starting into the world of filters. This is a great start as you get an split ND and a Color Grad. What I do wish is that the ND Grad was a soft edge and not a hard edge as for me that would be more useful, but its still good! Its a great starter kit for anyone just getting into square filters!
