I am a hobbyist landscape photographer and love slow shutter shots, which usually means i'm out really early or later in the evening (which the latter I don't mind). I shoot with a canon 5d mrk iii and 17-40L lens for most of my landscapes. As for my filters I started out using screw on filters for CP, and ND, and then a couple years ago I read up on using Cokin P square filters which made sense to me. One set of filters for any of my lenses. Well I wasn't too keen on fixing the awful color cast I kept getting when stacking more than one filter, or having just B&W shots. So I thought I'd give the Lee filter a try after some prompting from a friend and I must say my first test shots were done between 8am to 12noon and my goodness 20 to 25 sec exposures in the middle of a cloudless day!!....no color cast!!...and my images are sharp! I am totally blown away by this filter and can't wait to try out some of Lee's grad filters! Also the holder and adapter rings are solid and block out stray light leaks from the back most excellent. Look me up on Flickr to check out my test shots to see for yourself. Michael A Santos

I accidently wrote a review on the 150mm page, but own this 100mm version. WARNING- even at 10,000 K this filter still makes a cool blue image! It's tolerable @ 10,000 K but still blue. For $140.00 I expected neutral density like the name implies, it's not neutral at all!! Lee should scrap this and start over., and send a refund for those of us that received a bluing filter. They may want to get in touch with Hoya or B&W and see how they do ND filters. That's my 2 cents, and $[$]! Look elsewhere if possible:)

I have been using the big stopper for a few weeks. Loving the long exposures. For bright midday sun though, the super stopper is better.

What can I say? Quality and workmanship are outstanding! I've tested the filter today extensively and even with more than 5 minutes exposure time, I can't notice any color shift.

I'm pretty stoked about my Big Stopper. It's added a new, creative opportunity to my kit. Lee Filters makes quality stuff, and this is no exception. If you're considering this, then you don't need any more information than it's a good product that does exactly what it's supposed to do. Don't forget to buy the filter holder and the adapter ring!

My first two photos with this filter were great!

Comments about LEE Filters 100 x 100mm Big Stopper 3.0 Neutral Density Filter:

I have put off buying this filter for over year. I thought I would not want to put up with all of the precautions for proper use of this filter. I recently started using the "LiveTime" feature on my Olympus OMD EM1, and realized that using this feature would allow me to watch the picture develop in real time. So much for calculating proper exposure time. I now look forward to using this filter.

It is a great product. I have owned a number of filters and filter holders. So far I am finding the Lee system to be an excellent choice. I am sorry I wasted so much money on those cheaper ptoducts.

Every single detail of this glass is amazing. There is no noticeable color cast, the glass quality is amazing with no softening, and the foam seal makes for a perfect tight fit. Worth every penny

Comments about LEE Filters 100 x 100mm Big Stopper 3.0 Neutral Density Filter:

What can you say but AWESOME. Great for low light when you need to slow water. No color cast. Just remember to change your White balance to Kelvin and set to around 9,000 - 10,000 Kelvin

Great filter system you can use across multiple lenses. Expensive, but you get what you pay for. As a professional, my products are more expensive than others in my area, but my customers use me because my work sets me apart from the others. Same thing with Lee filters.

Comments about LEE Filters 100 x 100mm Big Stopper 3.0 Neutral Density Filter:

Having small children means that most of my shooting has to be done during the day which is not ideal for long exposures. This filter allows me to capture what I want without any blowouts.

This was my first purchase of a LEE Product and I must say that this company definitely pays attention to the quality of their products. I purchased this with their Little Stopper and 105mm Circular Polarizer filters and they're all top grade products.

I use this for water / long exposure work. I've been using the 75 mm series for some time and needed the bigger size for a. Larger lens.

As Advertised

By BondGuy

from Lausanne, Switzerland

Verified Buyer

Comments about LEE Filters 100 x 100mm Big Stopper 3.0 Neutral Density Filter:

Good product. No light leak with the foam rubber seal. I use it with the Lee holder so I guess that is expected. It has a blue/gray cast to it that needs to be fixed in Lightroom (easy) or by adjusting color temperature in advance (much harder). 10 stops or so, just as advertised, and thus you can't focus your camera through this filter. Compose and focus, do a test shot, then insert the filter.
