LEE Filters

At the core of the LEE Filters system is the holder, which comes assembled with two filter slots but can easily be adapted to take up to four filters.
The holder is designed to be compatible with 100mm filters – the standard width. To fit the holder to the lens, an adaptor ring is required.
There are two types of LEE Filter adaptor ring - one for general use, and one for wide-angle lenses.

Foundation Kit
The Foundation Kit takes standard 100mm filters, and can be constructed to take up to three filters at any one time. The Foundation Kit, like all others, clips onto the adaptor ring which, in turn, screws onto your camera's lens.

(adaptor rings sold separately) 

Holder Versatility
The LEE Filters holder has been designed with almost every photographic eventuality and combination in mind.
Up to four filters of different types can be used in one holder. For instance you could combine Neutral Density and Warm-up Filters to respond to a specific lighting situation. Or if you shoot black and white you might select a red filter plus a Neutral Density Standard to darken blue skies and slow down the exposure.Crucially, once fitted to the adaptor ring, the holder can be rotated to any angle. This permits the photographer to balance the exposure even when the brightest areas fall, say, within the top left hand 'triangle' of the scene.

How the holder is constructed?
1. Fit the back cover plates to the back plate
2. Fit the filter holder guides to the back cover plates.
Up to four guides, or slots, can be used with one holder. (remember, though, the more filter guides added, the higher the likelihood of vignetting with wideangle lenses).
3. Fit the front cover plates to the filter holder guides.

Lee Filters Statement - An explanation from LEE Filters.

We are in the fortunate position of having experienced an unprecedented demand for our filters over the past 2 years – in particular the neutral density graduated filters, the quality of which, we believe, is second to none.
We are able to attain this level of quality for the simple reason that the vast majority of our filters are hand-made. While this means we can be certain of customer satisfaction almost every time, the drawback is that we are able to produce only a limited number of filters each day – we cannot simply press a button and allow a machine do the rest.

We are as proud of our skilled team of technicians, who understand the complexities involved in producing filters that meet the standards expected by photographers, as we are of the products themselves.
In the past, we have investigated the possibility of automating our manufacturing system, but we remain convinced that this option would end up compromising the quality of our product – something we are not prepared to risk.

In order to resolve these issues, we are currently well under way with recruiting and training additional staff, as well as installing more manufacturing equipment in our factory.
This process has taken time, but it has vastly increased the production of our filters and lead times are dropping considerably.

We ship a large quantity of filters every week to our dealers worldwide and they will constantly have varying levels of either stock or back orders. Talking to your LEE dealer regularly or even pre-ordering should get you accurate information on current lead times and you are quite likely to find the more popular items in stock.

We hope the above offers some reassurance, and would like to finish by stating that LEE Filters are committed to producing filters of the highest quality, and we are continuing to research and develop new products to add to our already comprehensive range and meet the exacting needs of our customers. Both now and for the future.
