SLR starter kits launched from Lee Filters - Lee Filters launched three new products at Focus on Imaging.
Lee Filters were showing their new products at Focus on Imaging in Birmingham. They were showing the following new products.
Digital SLR Starter Kit
An ideal introduction to the comprehensive Lee Filters filter system for digital SLR users, this new kit includes an assembled filter holder, a 0.6 ND standard. These new glass ND filters are optimised for use with digital cameras, as they absorb more Infrared and UV light than traditional ND filters and provide a more punchy result, with less discolouration in adverse lighting conditions.
All packed in the three filter triple pouch, this is an ideal way to get the best results with your digital SLR, at a very advantageous list price £176.25.
ProGlass ND Standard Filters
New from Lee Filters, the ProGlass ND is an extremely high quality glass ND standard filter – optimised for use with digital cameras, but equally useful for film. This brand hew filter uses a surface coating made from evaporated metal, and therefore provides very even absorption across the visible spectrum and through the UV and Infrared regions. Digital SLR users need to use ND standard filters to prolong exposure times in bright conditions for landscape photography, but the excess UV and IR can cause colour problems in some lighting situations.
The ProGlass filter reduces any chance of false colour casts, and also provides a result described as a punchier on a digital and film because the light forming the image is more specific to the requirements of the film or sensor.
Available in 100x100mm, ND 0.6 (2 stops) and 0.9 (3 spots). List price £94.
