Tandem adaptor

LEE has announced two new products to enhance their LEE100 filter system.


The LEE100 Tandem Adaptor

There are occasions when one filter holder isn’t enough, and this is when the new LEE100 Tandem Adaptor proves invaluable. Unique to the LEE Filters system, the Tandem Adaptor, which is constructed from aluminium, allows the photographer to use more than one ND grad and rotate each independently of the other, so they can be set at different angles. This allows for far more precise creative control of the exposure in complex lighting situations than one holder alone.

To fit, the first LEE100 Filter Holder is attached to the lens via the adaptor ring as normal. The LEE100 Tandem Adaptor then slides into the holder’s outermost slot, and the second LEE100 Filter Holder is attached to the adaptor. The holder closest to the lens can be used with up to three filter slots (one must be used for the Tandem), while the holder that’s attached to the Tandem Adaptor can be configured with one, two or three further filter guides.

Both holders can be rotated freely until the desired effect is achieved, and then locked in place to avoid any accidental movement of the filters.

 

LEE Hood & Pouch

The LEE100 Hood

Versatile and sturdy, the LEE100 Hood is fully compatible with the new LEE100 Filter Holder. Designed to shade the camera’s lens, and reduce the risk of stray light and flare spoiling the image, it can be used with up to three slot-in filters plus the LEE Filters Polariser. Constructed from a water-resistant reinforced nylon in a collapsible concertina design, it is self-supporting, with no need for intrusive and fiddly rails or guides, and can be adjusted to different angles and extensions for maximum versatility.


Simple to set up, the hood comes with an attachment ring that is affixed to the LEE100 Filter Holder via four locking tabs. The hood is then locked securely on to the attachment ring with a lever. It is then attached to the adaptor ring in the usual way. The hood can be rotated independently of the LEE100 Filter Holder, allowing the photographer to use ND grads as normal, while still getting the most out of the hood itself. At its fullest extension, the hood can be used with lenses of around 28mm and a two-slot filter guide without the risk of vignetting. Once it is reduced to half extension, lenses as wide as around 20mm can be used without vignetting.

Be interesting to see how the new hood attaches to the holder as it is difficult too visualise from the description
