LEE Filters Launch LEE Elements Range Of Circular Filters: Big Stopper


LEE Filters has introduced a new range of circular filters called 'LEE Elements' that are designed to be used by those who capture stills as well as video. 

Available in four standard sizes of 67mm, 72mm, 77mm and 82mm, LEE Elements comprises five filter types: Little Stopper (offering 6 stops of light reduction), Big Stopper (10 stops of light reduction), CPL (circular polariser) and two densities of VND (variable ND, providing 2-5 or 6-9 stops of light reduction).

Each LEE Elements filter incorporates multilayer-coated optics and features a rugged and robust black anodized aluminium frame. They're also easy to attach to lenses as you don't need a filter holder. 

The eagle-eyed will have spotted that this is the first time that LEE's Stopper filters for long-exposure photography are available in a circular format. The LEE Elements Little Stopper and Big Stopper also feature stackable housings and the rotating CPL and VND filters can be stacked in front of a Stopper.

The fluid rotation mechanics of the CPL and VND filters ensure smooth, silent operation, ideal for videography. Additionally, the VND filters feature a bracketed design with a rotational limit that eliminates the risk of cross-polarisation anomalies. The VND filters' clearly marked numeric stop positions support stills and video content creators with real-time exposure control in dynamic lighting situations and also provide another creative option for long-exposure photography. LEE Elements CPL filters draw on LEE’s expertise in polarisation for ultimate reflection and contrast control.

Beyond the filter range’s scratch-resistant and anti-reflective coatings, LEE Elements features hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings equivalent to those found on Panavision’s PanaND and LEE’s ProGlass Cine IRND filters, providing enhanced protection against moisture and fingerprints. The filters also feature a knurled finish for an enhanced all-weather grip. Additionally, the front and rear sections of the rotating CPL and VND incorporate differentiated grip patterns to provide users with tactile feedback as the filters are adjusted.

Each LEE Elements filter comes with its own single-piece, impact-resistant protective hard case with a custom foam insert as well as a cleaning cloth. 

LEE Elements is available globally through LEE Filters’ dealer network and in the U.K. through LEE Filters dealers and LEE Direct.
