LEE Filters 100mm System Polyester 0.4 Neutral Density Standard Filter
The LEE Filters 100mm System Polyester 0.4 Neutral Density Standard Filter reduces exposure by 1.33 Stops equally across the entire frame.
These filters are made from a flexible high quality polyester material that is approximately 1mm thick. They are supplied un-mounted by default and as such are incompatible with the standard 2mm filter slots on Lee Filters holders. This is to allow them to be cut & shaped to fit alternative applications where a rigid resin filter would not be suitable. If you do wish to use these filters with the 100mm System Holder then you will need to either purchase a pack of 100x100 plastic filter mounts or opt for the Polyester ND Technical Set in which the filters come pre-mounted. We would personally recommend the Resin or ProGlass ND filters for most uses.
ND standards can be classed as essential in modern photography. These filters absorb light evenly across the visible spectrum, therefore reducing the light entering the lens without affecting the image colour. Traditionally used on film for extending shutter speeds in bright conditions, they are now becoming essential to digital photographers for reducing the sensitivity of sensor chips on cameras which have relatively high minimum ISO settings.
ND Standards extend exposure times allowing for movement in an image, be it people, water, foliage or clouds. If used with care the effects can be impressive.
Lee 100x100mm ND Standard Filters are also available in ProGlass or Resin
Lee offer ND Standards with a full range of stopping power
The aim of the ND Standard filter is to reduce the exposure equally across the entire frame. It is most commonly used to lengthen shutter speeds in order to blur movement.
ND Filters can be stacked together, or used with other filters, so you can respond to almost any lighting condition.
