Karl's Long Exposure Filter Kit

Karl's Long Exposure Filter Kit

US$512.00

"It’s always inspiring to see the images that result from extended exposures. With this combination of filters, I can take a shutter speed that’s a fraction of a second and turn it into one that’s minutes long – even when shooting in broad daylight. Versatile and exciting, these filters help me push the boundaries of my creativity."

All the filters are hand made by the skilled team at Lee Filters where they gradually build up the Big and Little Stoppers and ND gradation by dipping optically correct resin in baths of dye and continuously monitoring the results. Each filter represents up to an hour of skilled work.

The Long Exposure Filter Kit Includes:

1 x Foundation Kit

The foundation kit filter holder takes standard 100mm filters, and can be constructed to take up to three filters at any one time. The foundation kit clips onto the adapter ring which, in turn, screws onto your camera's lens

1 x Big Stopper in a tin

The Big Stopper is a neutral density filter that reduces the amount of light entering your lens by ten stops.

By greatly extending exposure times the Big Stopper has the effect of allowing anything that is moving in your image to become blurred or ghost like, for example clouds, waterfalls, rivers, and the sea. The filter can also be used on cityscapes to blur people or on roads and motorways to blur traffic.

1 x Little Stopper in a tin

The Little Stopper is a neutral density filter that reduces the light entering your lens by six stops.

The Little Stopper is ideal for those low-light conditions at the beginning and end of the day (when the Big Stopper’s ten stops may prove too much), allowing you to enjoy increased flexibility with exposure lengths.

In many shooting conditions the Little Stopper will retain detail and texture in areas of movement such as the sky and water, while still conveying a sense of time passing.

1 x 0.9 ProGlass ND Filter

A glass filter that reduces exposure by 3 stops without affecting colour balance.

The ProGlass ND is an extremely high quality glass ND standard filter optimised for use with digital cameras, but equally useful for film.

This new filter uses a surface coating made from evaporated metal, and therefore provides very even absorption across the visible spectrum and through the UV and Infra Red regions.

Digital SLR users need to use ND standard filters to prolong exposure times in bright conditions for landscape photography, but the excess UV and IR can cause colour problems in some lighting situations. The ProGlass filter reduces any chance of false colour casts, and also provides a result described as punchier on digital and film because the light forming the image is more specific to the requirements of the film or sensor.

1 x Cleaning Cloth

A high quality cleaning cloth which can be used either dry or with the cleaning solution.

3 x Lens Caps

The lens cap allows you to leave the adaptor ring attached at all times while keeping the front element clean and safe. The lens cap is made of white polypropylene and, when attached, can be used to white balance a digital SLR, or as a makeshift incident lightmeter on any camera. They can also be written on to identify lenses in the camera bag.
