I just received a Lee holder and Hitech 10stop filter. I will try and find something worthy of a photo soon.

How easy is it to correct for colour changes with the Hitech? (or not easy, as the case may be!)

Are you using the Hitech "Pro Stop" filter, or the older, regular 10-stop? I've got the Pro Stop and compared to the B+W 10-stop it replaced, it is a piece of cake to correct for.

It's the pro stop.

£40 vs £150+ for a Lee isn't too hard a choice really. As long as it's not totally useless of course.

Anyone know where the Lee 4x4 circular polariser is in stock in the UK? Having trouble locating one. Also whats the RRP? I can see one on ebay for £150 delivered but not sure if this is reasonable or not

Thanks

Hi, No this is a rather older posting but I thought if you have not seen this or want to see the Square filter in action and maybe have a little chuckle at someone elses misfourtune.

Ben,

Nice shots--I always enjoy your work. Do you use solid slide-in ND's in addition to your CPL? If so, what densities do you use? It seems like there is a big gap between the 3 stop solid ND and the 10-stop Big Stopper offered by Lee.

Also, do you find it limiting to only be able to rotate the CPL by 90 degrees at a time? I know that there has been some discussion on this in the past, but I can't help but believe that it would be preferable to have the fine-tuning available in the screw-in format.

Thanks for your advice!

I do not own slide in NDs. You can use Lee's GNDs as NDs if you need to. Generally I get up early enough to shoot 30s exposures w/o anything more than a CP though. You CAN rotate the panel CP, it's just if you've got a GND in there as well you're stuck at whatever angle that needs. It has not been an issue at all for me, I fing I'm actually better off this way because I remember to rotate the holder thanks to the GND. I have lots of CP shots with my 77 where it's not rotated to max effect because I forgot.... Yes you lose some micro adjustments, but for the last year I've been 100% thrilled with having a panel version instead of threaded.

Would it help to add some foam strips like the "big stopper" to make this thing stay put? I would like to try one, but I not be happy if the thing fell out all the time. Is there no one that makes a resin version? Big Hi-Tech Fan.

you can do the screw holder method ben did on the filter holder. i use that method as well as have electrical tape on the sides of my cpl to help stop slippage.

Hi, I want to have the option of rotation of the two filters and on looking at the LEE options I see an option to upgrade the foundation kit to the pro (as they put it) setup with the use of an upgrade kit but!! they also have a tandem adapter that I believe joins two filter holders together. Does useing this tandem adapter get the same result as useing the upgrade kit as I already have an additional foundation kit?
Many Thanks
Hope you understand the question.
Russ


Many Thanks,
Russell.

^ not sure on the two different -vs- pro -vs- tandem, but getting the tandem allows rotation. It might also vignette since it's adding a ton of more "stuff" in front of your lens. I just use the single and it's been fine, I'd try that first and only change if you're having an issue.

check my posts above, I use 2 screws and it's been perfect for me.
