Lee Fil­ters Lit­tle Stop­per

Ex­tend your ex­po­sure times with this six-stop ND fil­ter

NPhoto - - Rated & Previewed -

With a ten stop ex­po­sure re­duc­tion, Lee’s orig­i­nal Big Stop­per is de­signed to al­low much longer ex­po­sure times, but at dawn and dusk it can be too much. The new Lit­tle Stop­per is rated at six stops – it will ex­tend an ex­po­sure of 1/250 sec to 1/4 sec, say.

In or­der to en­sure that no light leaks be­tween fil­ter and holder, a thin foam pad is fit­ted to one side of the glass, form­ing a per­fect seal. This pad also helps to hold the fil­ter in the holder se­curely while still en­abling its easy re­moval.

Mea­sur­ing 100 x 100mm, the Lit­tle Stop­per uses the stan­dard Lee fil­ter holder, rather than the more com­mon and smaller P-type. This means that you’ll need to in­vest in the Lee Foun­da­tion Kit along side the fil­ter, but it is a set that will last a life­time.

Lee has re­cently changed the pack­ag­ing for both the Big and Lit­tle Stop­per: both now ar­rive in a foam-lined metal tin to en­sure that the pricey fil­ter is pro­tected while it isn’t in use.

You’ll also need Lee’s Foun­da­tion Kit in or­der
