About the Lee Filters Lee Starter 2 Filter Set

The Lee Starter 2 Filter Set contains several filters and a holder that will help you elevate your outdoor shooting to a higher level. The Lee Foundation Kit is the basic element of the Lee filter holder System. This kit contains all the necessary components (including a small screwdriver) to construct a versatile holder which will take up to four filters. When assembled, the holder in it's standard form accepts three filters - 100mm (4") wide x 2mm thick and one additional 100 x 100mm (4x4") gelatin filter. It also holds 4x6" (100 x 150mm, 2mm thick) filters

Lee makes a variety of standard and wide angle adapter rings in screw-in and bayonet sizes as well as accessory compendium shades. When mounted, this holder will rotate on the optional adapter ring for positioning a polarizer or a graduated filter. Optional "side-guides" and guide mounting screws in shorter/longer lengths are available for use with 1mm and 4mm thick filters.

Neural Density filters have several uses and offer the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results. They enable the shooter to adjust exposure without affecting color balance. ND filters appear gray and reduce the amount of light reaching the film.

Determining which neutral density filter yields ideal results for any given lighting situation takes knowledge, experience and a collection of such filters. Speaking generally, the 2-stop value (ND 0.6) effectively compensates average situations.

Graduated Coral 3 Resin Filter (Hard Edge) Coral is a general purpose warming filter which comes in increasing amounts of color temperature correction as the number in the series increases. It is commonly used to produce slightly "orangey" skies. From light to heavy, any effect from basic correction to warmer or cooler than "normal" is possible. Corals can also compensate for the overly cool blue effect of outdoor shade.

The kit includes a handy 15 x 15" cleaning cloth that will help remove any unsightly smudges from your filters. Everything is packed in a durable Cordura nylon storage pouch with compartments.

Lee Filters Lee Starter 2 Filter Set Features

  • The Foundation Kit is the basic filter holder in the Lee System. It is for 4x4" or 4x6" filters and rotates. It is designed to hold 3 filters but is expandable using Lee's optional Side Guides
  • To enable slow shutter speeds to be used, especially with high speed films, to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, or cars
  • To decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background
  • To decrease the effective ISO of high speed film (above ISO 400) and allow it to be used outdoors in bright situations
  • To allow cine and video cameras (which have fixed shutter speeds) to film subjects such as snow, sand or other bright scenes which could cause overexposure
  • Coral Filters are used extensively in both still and cinematography to add a touch of "orange" to a scene. They are one of the most commonly used filters in those disciplines and are available in various grades to suit your needs
