LEE Filters Big Stopper Overview

The 150 x 150mm SW150 Big Stopper Neutral Density 3.0 Filter from LEE Filters is an ND filter with a 1,000x filter factor that provides a 10 stop exposure reduction. Its 3.0 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image and are ideal for pairing with other filters.

This SW150 Big Stopper neutral density filter is constructed from optical glass for clarity as well as color fidelity and features a built-in gasket. This gasket works with a compatible LEE Filters SW150-series filter holder with an integrated or add-on Lightshield to help form a seal that is intended to prevent stray light, which could have unwanted effects on exposure, from coming in between the filter and the lens behind it. For efficient use in the field, an exposure guide is included that shows the amount of exposure reduction the SW150 Big Stopper Neutral Density 3.0 Filter provides, corresponding to a range of shutter speed settings from 1/1,000th of a second to 2 seconds before the filter is applied.

question

Will this fit NiSi 150mm Filter Holder for Tokina 16-28mm Lens ?
Asked by: Vinoth K.
Can't say for sure since I am not familiar with filter holder you are using. However, in addition to thickness of glass, you must consider if it would fit light-tight to holder and lens or light will leak in and ruin the exposure. The Lee SW150 system provides a light tight connection.

question

Will this filter fit into the 4 x4, 4 x6 Lee filter hollder?
Asked by: Steve
This is designed for the Lee Filter 150 System and the Mark II version which has a Lightguard in the II system that did not exist in the I version. I have the Mark II Holder sand have no problems with this filter used in it. Mixing and matching mfrs is not always a good idea.

question

what is the typical exposure time for this when shooting waterfalls in the day.. are we looking at 10 seconds or 10 minutes?
Asked by: cathy
Cathy, it would be somewhere around 1 second to 4 seconds. If the normal shutter speed is 1/1000 with big stopper it would be 1 second. If the normal shutter speed is 1/250 with big stopper it will be 4 seconds. Lee filters has a nice app that shows the conversion if you are interested.
