Un­less you al­ready use Lee 100mm fil­ters, when you buy this you’ll also need to pur­chase a Foun­da­tion Kit and adap­tor ring, which can add up to £100 ($120) to the price of this square fil­ter. All com­po­nents are en­gi­neered to a very high stan­dard, though, mak­ing it an at­trac­tive sys­tem – this par­tic­u­lar fil­ter is a real favourite with pro pho­tog­ra­phers.

The Big Stopper fil­ter it­self has to be used in the rear tray of the fil­ter holder, and has foam pad­ding around its rear edge. This is to stop any stray light from en­ter­ing through the top, bot­tom or sides of the as­sem­bly.

In our tests, the light re­duc­tion proved true to Lee’s claims of 10 stops but our sam­ple im­ages, taken us­ing both the D7000 and D610 cam­eras, had a no­tice­able green colour cast.
