LEE Filters Launch Solar Eclipse Filter & Filter Wash: LEE solar filter

LEE Filters has launched a filter specifically for use when photographing solar eclipses. 

Available for the Seven5, 100mm and SW150 systems, the Solar Eclipse Filter is capable of reducing the intensity of light by 20 stops, bringing the exposure range down to a manageable level. It is designed to allow the user to capture the partial phases of an eclipse (the stages before and after total eclipse) with accuracy and consistency. The filter should be removed when photographing totality.

The filter simply slots into the standard LEE Filters holder, and features a foam seal at the rear, to ensure a snug fit and to avoid light leaks. 
It should be noted that the Solar Eclipse Filter is suitable only for photography of eclipses, and is not recommended for general, long-exposure landscape photography. This is because it is designed to filter out some of the sun’s harmful infrared rays, and is therefore very blue in colour. Any colour cast affecting eclipse images can be corrected in post-production, or the images converted to black and white.


  • Solar Eclipse Filter (Seven5 System) - £60.50 (Excl VAT)
  • Solar Eclipse Filter (100mm System) - £89.10 (Excl VAT)
  • Solar Eclipse Filter (SW150 System) - £113.30 (Excl VAT)

Also announced is ClearLEE filter wash, which has been specially formulated to cut through dirt and grease quickly, efficiently and above all, safely, and is suitable for use on both resin and glass filters. Supplied in an aluminium bottle with a spray top, ClearLEE Filter Wash is available in 300ml and a smaller 50ml size. 

To use, simply spray directly on to the filter, then wipe with a clean microfibre or lint-free cloth. For best results, buff the filter with a fresh cloth or tissue.


  • 50ml Bottle - £7.00 (Excl VAT)
  • 300ml Bottle - £20.00 (Excl VAT)
