Lee Filters Little Stopper
Extend exposure times dramatically with this six-stop ND filter
ND filter > £99, $140 > www.leefilters.com Lee Filters’ Big Stopper was a revelation for creating silky-smooth long-exposures by reducing light by ten stops. However, for more manageable shutter speeds at dawn or dusk, the Little Stopper’s six-stop reduction is ideal, plus it’ll retain some texture in moving areas. You’ll need Lee’s Foundation Kit to mount the Little Stopper, due to the filter’s larger-than-average dimensions. This is quality kit, though.
Upgrade if you own...
No ND filters, or an ND2 or ND4 filter and want even more scope for motion blur, but not if you’ve already got Lee Filters’ excellent Big Stopper.

This mobile power station will juice up two Nikon EN-EL14 or EN-EL15 batteries simultaneously, plus it’ll refuel AA cells. UK, USA and Euro plugs are included, along with a car adaptor.
