LEE Filters Big Stopper overview

  • 1Description

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.

    LEE Filters Big Stopper reviews

    150 x 150mm SW150 Big Stopper Neutral Density 3.0 Filter (10 Stop) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Filter without Question Excellent for softening daytime waterfalls and capturing cloud movement with long shutter in bulb mode. Note: It helps to have a cable release with a built-in timer for exposures longer than 30 seconds. I use this filter on my nikon 14-24mm lens using the SenseiPRO Filter Holder. This high quality filter preserves the crisp quailty an integrity of the lens and avoids the color shift you can get from other filters.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It works well Pros: It works well , comes in a nice protective case. Cons: very fragile, large surface picks up a lot of dust, muck etc, and requires cleaning all the time, so pack a good cleaning kit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it says It works as a total block consistent across to allow for long exposure effect. And provides the rich colors you look for. It has to be put on correctly in the first slot. So you need to pay attention to the seal on the back for insertion into the slot. It is definitely more time consuming in it's use over the screw on filters, from putting on, to wiping off in wet conditions. But with this lens you are limited in your choices.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lee Big Stopper works as advertised I wanted the big stopper for use on my D800 with 14-24 lens. Bought a Photodiox filter system a while back. Tho the Lee is too small to fit the slots, I just used some rubber bands top and bottom to hold it on. Works great for those long exposures.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for pro like pictures Great quality which is expected from Lee Filters. This is a must have filter to produce professional looking landscape pictures. There is no other way to get long exposures during the day, period.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite filter by far Produces a slight blue cast, but if you shoot in RAW this is so easy to adjust to get the colour you want.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from ND Filter? I would say about 3.5 stars. It works, but has a huge shift to the cool side! I have to have my D800 set at 10,000 Kelvin to help with the cooling of this filter. Even then it's still a bit on the cool side, but tolerable. I fix the rest is PS! Far from neutral IMO.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, useful for a certain kind of shot A specific kind of item to be sure, this is a top option for long exposures. Not an everyday item but there are instances in which I've been very happy to have it along, and the resulting images have been exactly what I wanted to get.
