Camera - - WHAT’S NEW -

BRI­TISH COM­PANY Lee Fil­ters has launched a new range of high-qual­ity neu­tral den­sity fil­ters. Two years in de­vel­op­ment, the ProGlass IRND fil­ters were orig­i­nally de­signed for cin­e­matog­ra­phy and, claims Lee, have al­ready been ac­knowl­edged as “the best neu­tral-den­sity fil­ters on the mar­ket”.

For still pho­tog­ra­phers, the ProGlass IRND fil­ters are now avail­able in Lee’s Seven5, 100mm and SW150 sys­tems. Ad­vances in coat­ing tech­nol­ogy mean that the fil­ters – which are man­u­fac­tured from 2.0 mm thick op­ti­cally-flat glass – are avail­able in strengths of two (0.6ND), three (0.9ND), four (1.2ND) and six (1.8ND) stops, plus in ul­tra-long ten (3ND) and 15-stop (4.5ND) ver­sions. All the fil­ters in the range are de­signed to be free of colour casts and with ac­cu­rate stop val­ues to en­sure con­sis­tency in all shoot­ing con­di­tions and al­low for pre­ci­sion in ex­po­sures. The neu­tral­ity also means less time needs to be spent ad­just­ing colour bal­ances in post-pro­duc­tion.

The ProGlass IRND fil­ters are also de­signed to block both in­frared and ul­tra­vi­o­let pol­lu­tion. The six, ten and 15-stop ver­sions have a foam seal to pre­vent light leaks dur­ing long ex­po­sures,

All fil­ters in the ProGlass IRND range can be used in con­junc­tion with other fil­ters, in­clud­ing neu­tral den­sity grads and a po­lariser. For more in­for­ma­tion visit www.leefilters.com
