LEE Filters SOL100 overview

  • 1Description

Bring the exposure range down to manageable levels for capturing images of the sun and solar eclipses with the LEE Filters 100x100mm Solar Eclipse Filter. When shooting a solar eclipse, even the lowest ISOs and fastest shutter speeds result in overexposed, blown-out images, and this filter is specifically designed to eliminate this. The filter fits into the standard 100x100mm-series holder. The solar eclipse filter is designed solely for solar and solar eclipse photography. It is not suitable for general long-exposure landscape photography, or for direct solar viewing with the naked eye.

    LEE Filters SOL100 reviews

    100x100mm Solar Eclipse Filter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solar photography, here I come. I was able to shoot the Aug 21 eclipse with a Nikon D7200, and a 80-400mm lens w/1.4x teleconverter. This filter is a 20-stop, so at f/8 I needed to compensate with higher ISO and longer shutter speed than I would have liked, but good filters were in great demand for this eclipse. I also purchased the Lee filter holder and a 77mm adapter ring. This combination was not much more expensive than just a regular filter, so it is not a one-use solution. I have been doing more landscape photography, so the Lee system will come in handy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Solar Filter I ordered this filter last Friday and received it in 3 days. Today, when the sun finally came out, I did a few test shots and it worked great. I was also impressed that it was glass and not plastic. The 20 stops that it provides produced the following photo which was taken at f8, 1/30 second, and ISO 100 on a Canon 7D and Tamron 150-600mm lens. No cropping needed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Lee Filters Solar Eclipse Filter worked perfect Hello, I wanted to wait until the August 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse for North America was completed before I reviewed this filter. This Lee Filter worked perfect. I already own other Lee Filters for Landscape photography. I was able to use my Lee foundation holders and lens adapters. I almost ran into one problem. I was going to use a Canon 400mm F5.6 lens with 77 MM filter rings. This particular lens has the built on lens hood. This lens hood protruded past the end of the filter screws and would not allow the Lee Foundation Filter adapter to attach. So I tried my Canon 100-400 F5.6 zoom and the 77 mm lens adapter worked just fine. I used the recommended ISO 800, F8, 1/800 second shutter for all my solar photos and they turned out perfect. This filter is expensive, but it is the best.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the eclipse I've been testing this on my Nikon 200-500 & 70-200 lenses and it is fabulous. I wasn't sure it would be big enough for the 95mm 200-500 but it works perfectly. B&H delivered on time, as usual.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am happy with the results I am very happy with the quality. Please see product info/instructions from Lee Filters in the photo.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't wait for the Eclipse! I ordered a 100x100 filter, I was expecting a gel filter, but this is glass! I haven't used it yet, but looking through the filter shows I can see nothing. I do plan to test it before the 21st. I will be using it with my Nikon 200-500 zoom, and maybe with the 24-120 lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! Worked great and served its purpose. I'm ready for 2024!
    Date published: 2017-08-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great! Tested it out this morning with Nikon 200-500, D810, Lee foundation Filter Holder mounted on Gitzo Mountaineer tripod with off center ball head. At ISO 200 exposure was 1/500, f/8. the accompanying image is composite of 13 taken n Live View mode with C sub H for shooting mode. Focus and exposure were on manual based on predetermined exposure. Exposures were cropped to a size slightly larger than solar disk in Lightroom, exported as layers to PS then hand aligned using blend mode = difference for EACH image (a pain, but auto align doesn't work with this sort of image). Then converted to Smart Object and combined with Median. Sunspot very clearly defined. Roughness on solar surface is real - it repeats over several series of exposures. Probably barely resolved granulation. I'd be happy to exchange further ideas, suggestions, etc. I can be reached at jayfrogel at me dot com
