a Great item to carry around ND filters five on each side 10 Filters total Its lined with velvet to protect your filters from getting scratched The cost is high but what do you expect when you pay a lot for quality filters like Lee products
Ordered this to get rid of the clutter of the separate Lee filter pouches. Now mind you, those pouches were no slouch, they are great at protecting individual filters. But when you start building your collection, this book comes in real handy. It organizes all your filters into 10 pouches (5 on either side). The material is not really microfiber but its soft enough that you feel its safe from getting any scratches (some will note its similar to certain SWAG tote bag material). It offers a labeling system that basically looks like a table of contents or index page with numbering 1-10 and a blank space to the right. That's located on the front cover as you can see in the photos. They do offer a few replacements. Honestly, this is a bit annoying as it's not like these pages are numbered or have a logical page reference (since its split into 5 and 5 on each side). And let's face it: you're on site ready to shoot and you thumb through it thinking which filter to use. A few people have recommended just a simple avery label on your preferred side -- there's more than enough room. Now just to be clear, if you're using exclusively 4x6 filters, they are usually etched/marked at the top and the side you insert them in is lower so that you can see this. This is actually logical and makes sense up until the point where you bring your square filters like the Big Stopper or Pro Glass into play and they are all the way at the bottom of the pouch and unseen (thus the ideal need for labels on the page itself). Now this pouch is not small. It's roughly the thickness of at least two, if not three Lee filter pouches. Plus you would have to still have the other pouch for the Lee filter mount anyway (I'd imagine you could put it in, but why risk the glass). Certain Lee filters used to come with the nice microfiber cloth...I can barely get this in and the pouch bulges a little (and I only have a little more than half of the slots filled). Be careful, as too much extras will make your resin vulnerable. OF course, a smaller microfiber towel (like say the one that comes with many apple products) would definitely fit well and give you peace of mind knowing you didn't forget it in a pinch. Now, this pouch is great if you have a serious collection of filters. However if you have only 3 or 4, you're almost as good with the pouches as far as space consumed. This just makes it neater for you to keep all in one place. I know there are a few by Lowepro and Adorama that will take care of you if you have only a few, but the booklet method really feels the most secure because of its format. I would honestly petition Lee (or any other vendor) to make something of similar style but half the thickness for people with less filters and a more compact ability to pack this booklet. The pages feel soft enough with just a bit of rigidity, and the surrounding binder has a good amount of padding and stiffness that will keep everything reasonably safe. But overall a great filter holder especially since those who get in this realm usually have larger packs.
Nice product to keep your filters organized. One thing, this pouch actually has sleeves for 10 filters, not 5. I keep my 4x4 in the front 5 and the 4x6 in the back 5 sleeves.
This is an amazing product. It costs a bit more but you get what you pay for. The quality is superb. I have tried a few different filter holders in the lower cost range and never found a decent one that wouldn't scratch my filters. With the velvet sleeves in this holder, I can be assured that my filters are protected. It even has a window on the front to keeps notes, although I found that using a label maker to stick the filter labels directly on each sleeve to be more useful (I note the filter type and if necessary, the stop increase it adds). The only thing I could recommend to make this better would be an integrated belt clip. This isn't a problem, as I grabbed one for about 50 cents from the hardware shop and looped it around the zipper area at the top. This allows me to clip the case to my belt loop for quick filter access.
