So the Lee foundation kit is backordered everywhere I look. Are there any alternatives to the kit? How do people like the Cokin P? Any links to the product will be appreciated. Thanks!

The consensus seems to be that the Cokin is nice and you can go with that one if you don't want to spend the money/can't wait for the Lee. If none of the above is true then the Lee is the way to go.

Foundation kit is not only way to go, what about a "Hood" with the slots?
I have/use a Universal hood with 2 slots (and can add more).

Can you point us to a source for this hood?

I contacted LEE a week ago , they said that B&H is expected to get a new shipment of the foundation kit within 2-3 weeks (which makes it 1-2 weeks now) ,

I placed an order two weeks ago by phone and they had a small shipment in last weekend and it has actually shipped and expected to arrive before the weekend , i suggest you do the same thing .

Can you give an example of how the hood works? I'm not quite sure what the hood actually does.

This kit is a little more expensive than the Lee :( That said, it looks just like the LEE.

There is not much in the specs but it appears you can use any 4x4 or 4x6 LEE or any other brand filter.

This one includes the wide angle adapter filter. I think that's why it's more expensive. Any other thoughts? Should I just wait for the Lee foundation kit? Is the Lee much better than the Cokin?

Someone else may know more precisely but I think Century Optics is the company that makes the foundation kits and the adaptor rings for Lee.

And that kit looks LESS expensive than the Lee since it includes a 77mm WA adaptor ring (very nice).

Awesome, and also, this would work with any other filter right? Any recommendations for a brand?

looks exactly like the LEE (which i got today) but it's more expensive , LEE foundation kit + WA 77 ring = 83 + 65 = 148 , but not by much .

I guess it will work just like the LEE , but that's something i can't confirm .

It says it holds one 4mm thick glass filter. The Lee kit has two slots (expandable to 4) that I think are smaller so I don't know if this would hold a standard thickness filter.

Can someone else verify?
