LEE Filters 4x4" Neutral Density (ND) 0.9 Resin Filter

Lee Neutral Density gels are available in small increments and have many uses. They offer the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results. ND filters appear grey and reduce the amount of light reaching the film. They have no effect on color balance. They have four main uses: 1) To enable slow shutter speeds to be used, especially with high speed films, to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, or cars. 2) To decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background. 3) To decrease the effective ISO of high speed film (above ISO 400) and allow it to be used outdoors in bright situations. 4) 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.

Lee resin filters are made from lightweight, optical resin and are 4 x 4" (100 x 100mm) x 2mm thick.

These filters are available in increments from 1 to 3 stops exposure reduction.

Neutral Density factors:

ND .30 (exposure adjustment = 1 stop)

ND .60 (exposure adjustment = 2 stops)

ND .90 (exposure adjustment = 3 stops)

        I have been using the LEE filters for years, and after getting the insurance money to replace my stolen camera gear I had no hesitation in repurchasing this system.

        The filter holder and a set of filters are always in my bag.

          Lee filters are pricy, but you get what you pay for. Excellent quality filters. Helps a lot for shots with water bodies (specially waterfalls). During daytime, I usually use my 10 stop filter for getting smooth water. But, during less light hours, this thing is indispensable, Good sharp images, little color cast (easily correctable in PP).

            Comments about LEE Filters 4x4" Neutral Density (ND) 0.9 Resin Filter:

            I've stacked ND filters to gain the desired shutter speed... Now I can use one filter! This single filter gets me to the shutter speeds I typically want when the ambient light is just too much.
            The filer's fit to the holder is excellent. With the first use I could tell it was not going to be in jeopardy of slipping out.
            Having been a Cokin user for a number of years, I am really re-thinking my equipment purchases. I will be more prone to choose the Lee system now.

                Very good filter. I detect no color shift using it on landscape and water shots. I am new to using filter holder systems, and really like them. Except for a polarizer, will no longer buy screw ins - holders have many advantages.

                      For such a high demand for this filter, I was surprised how much blue color cast it has...I'm talkin huge amout of blue. It can be corrected but sometimes it can be tough. Other than the color, I did not notice any real loss of sharpness.

                        - No color casts.- Pricey. But better than the alternatives.- Upgraded to Lee filters to avoid the strong color casts in the images introduced by my earlier filter sets.- There is a glass version available from Lee. That is almost 1.5 times expensive. This filter does what it is made to do. Resin is less resistant to scratches (as compared to glass), but less fragile at the same time. I am happy with the results.

                            Bought some Cokin NDs in the same stoppage and the magenta hue from stacking was a huge disappointment. Lee ND's do not have any color cast problems and can work well with a stacked Cokin, just don't stack more than 1 Cokin.

                            Or just save your money and avoid Cokin all together.
