I recently went to use my Lee Filters...long story short - I went to pull out my bigstop case, and the glass was completely shattered in the case - from what looks like what was due to an impact of possibly a lens or something heavy hitting the case and it cracked from the middle out.

So, I am kicking myself for not being more careful at some point, but also for not having better protection. Does anyone know where I can find a hard case to store square/rectangular filters? I remember when initially buying my filters there was an option for one that had a nice snug fit for the filters and was made of a metal or something of the sort where I wouldn't have to worry about them - but now I can't find this same product,

any help is appreciated... And now to hunt down another big stop too :/

You can use something like this hard CD case (external link)

Now my question is will these cd sleeves scratch the filters?

Sounds crazy, but I putted my filters in a DVD box which didn't have a CD slot.
The box was from a Microsoft Points card

Fits perfect! But I upgraded to a nice Lowepro Filterpouch 100

perhaps Lee filter pouch might give little better protection.

I watched some youtube video comparing all the big filter cases and the click elite case came out to be the best. I just purchased one a couple days ago and it is really nice. Works well, durable, and quick and efficient. http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …are_Filter_Vale​t_Red.html (external link)

My setup consists of a Clik Filter Valet, with glass filters towards the middle, and resin filters offering additional protection in the outer slots.

Just my 2¢

I always keep mine in an adorama slinger (external link). But it is not a hard case. However I have never had any problems. Recently though, since I only have 3 filters at the moment, I considered putting something hard in the first and last compartment, to make it stiffer in case of impact.

I use this for my grads; for round filters I use another Slinger (external link) holder. Both are filled; neither's showed any signs of filter damage over a couple of years (nor did the round filters in a similar, but less wear-resistant Tiffen filter holder).

I bought a small pelican case and store mine in there.


Equipment list - According to the wife - "how many more lenses do you need? Yet another camera?"  ???

Bought the Clik Elite rectangular wallet but wasn't happy. So ended up buying the Pelican Micro 1060. Holds my Lee filters, CPL, filter holder and Cokin BY circular filter.

I like this guys setup. If you go to 2:45, he talks about how he deals with his filters.

So has anybody used a cd wallet as a filter holder? will the plastic on the CD sleeves scratch?

ever just want something that's incredibly cool, but you have no reason what so ever to own it?

Right now, for me, that's a 3D printer. I have been wanting one for a year or so now. Custom filter holder seems like the perfect reason now to buy one!

Think my wife would go for it?
