I just picked up a Lee foundation kit and I'm looking for a CPL but cannot find anywhere that has them in stock. I found polarizer but not circular polarizer. Adorama and BH does not have them in stock.
Looks like I might have to try for an alternative but not sure what is good. I know Hoya and BW makes good ones but screw-in types.

I get all of my Lee stuff from Robert White in the UK. Very reliable, everything I want is always in stock.

Try the square one. I actually prefer the square one and it is good enough for the job.


Fuji XE-1, Zeiss ikon, Hasselblad; I love shooting film as a conceptual idea :)

Just seems like everywhere is out of stock for what I need. I found some others but not sure how they are. Seems like HiTech would be my other option but I want to see from other users if they have used them and how they are. Also Cokin as well.

heliopan is the best bet if you want high quality to use with a wide lens.

How about Singh-Ray? They have polarizers in Z-Pro size that should fit the Lee holder, I have one on order myself - quite pricey though at 390 USD.
