The Lee RF75 Black and White Filter Set contains two of the basics for any black and white shooter. These are two of the most valuable contrast filters one can add to their gear bag.
Yellow #8 Filter
This filter is commonly used for a noticeable increase in contrast with black and white films.
Light Red 23A Filter
This filter is used in black and white photography to suppress blue and greatly brighten red. It produces contrast effects that darken sky and water, as in more dramatic architectural photography.
The Lee RF75 Rangefinder Filter Holder System offers a small, portable, flexible filter system to users of all camera formats. From small, high-end digital cameras to traditional medium and large format shooters, the RF75 is designed with a lightweight and compact design making it a perfect choice for outdoor shooting.
This system was originally targeted for small, rangefinder point-and-shoot users. However, it is an eminently viable alternative for anyone needing a compact, full-featured filter system at a reasonable price point. Film shooters as well will find this system of great benefit.
The system holds filters sized 75 x 90mm. The front assembly of the holder has been laser etched for repeatable positioning of the holder. In that way, graduated filters can be used over and over again with the same results. This is a huge benefit to rangefinder users who cannot see the effects of the filters through their viewfinder. The two filters slots on the holder have been designed to cover the widest lenses available in today's market.
