Lee Fil­ters’ hand-made fil­ters have ac­quired a rep­u­ta­tion for ab­so­lute qual­ity, and this set is no ex­cep­tion. Only the dark­est ND8 fil­ter in this trio ex­hib­ited a faint trace of a colour cast when shoot­ing a white card, with the ND4 and ND2 fil­ters per­form­ing per­fectly. All three are ideal for bal­anc­ing high-con­trast land­scapes by block­ing up to three stops of light, and thanks to their large 100x150mm size you get plenty of com­po­si­tion con­trol.

How­ever, top qual­ity doesn’t come cheap. The fil­ters them­selves are pretty pricey, but to ac­tu­ally use them you’ll need to fork out an ex­tra £54/$88 for Lee’s Foun­da­tion Kit fil­ter holder, plus around £19/$28 for a lens adap­tor ring. Even so, if only the best will do and you’ve got deep pock­ets, it’s a price worth pay­ing.
