More choice, greater flexibility.
At the core of the LEE Filters system is the holder, which comes assembled with two filter slots but can easily be adapted to take up to four filters.
The holder is designed to be compatible with 100mm filters – our standard width. To fit the holder to the lens, an adaptor ring is required.
There are two types of LEE Filter adaptor ring:
one for general use, and one for wide-angle lenses.
Landscape photographer Joe Cornish has been using the LEE 100mm System for 25 years. In this video he shares his experience and gives an overview of all the key hardware components and filters, demonstrating the correct way to set everything up for best results.
The LEE Filters holder has been designed with almost every photographic eventuality and combination in mind.
Up to four filters of different types can be used in one holder. For instance you could combine Neutral Density and Warm-up Filters to respond to a specific lighting situation. Or if you shoot black and white you might select a red filter plus a Neutral Density Standard to darken blue skies and slow down the exposure.
Crucially, once fitted to the adaptor ring, the holder can be rotated to any angle. This permits the photographer to balance the exposure even when the brightest areas fall, say, within the top left hand 'triangle' of the scene.
The Foundation Kit takes standard 100mm filters, and can be constructed to take up to three filters at any one time. The Foundation Kit, like all others, clips onto the adaptor ring which, in turn, screws onto your camera's lens.Watch The Foundation Kit Video
The push-on filter holder has been specifically designed to fit straight to certain large format wide-angle lenses which otherwise will not take a filter system. It takes the standard 100mm filters and fits directly to lenses with an outside diameter of 100mm (filter thread often 95mm). It can be custom adapted to fit lenses or centre filters of smaller diameter, but is not generally the best option for sizes less than 86mm.

The adaptor ring screws onto the camera's lens and, in turn, the filter holder clips onto the adaptor ring.
The adaptor ring screws onto the lens with a fluid action, thanks to the sturdy construction and aluminium screw thread.

The standard adaptor ring is suitable for use with lenses up to a moderate wide-angle. It sits in front of the lens's front thread. The standard adaptor ring is compatible with lens focal lengths of approximately 24-28mm (35mm SLR equivalent) and upwards.
The wide-angle adaptor ring is suitable for use with wide-angle lenses. It differs from the standard adaptor ring by sitting closer to the front element of the camera's lens. As a result, the likelihood of vignetting is dramatically reduced.

Versatile and lightweight, the Seven5 System is the ultimate take-everywhere filter set-up for the Compact System Camera user.
Reimagined for tablets these new eBooks take you through stunning landscape photos and the exact filters and techniques used.
An all new design fits an ever expanding range of ultra-wideangle lenses. Full range of filters including Polariser and Big Stopper.
Thanks to their flexibility, these hoods can be used at varying angles, so can selectively shade parts of the image, or even match the movements of a large format camera – making them a versatile addition to the photographers' kit bag.
All LEE Filters lens hoods are self-supporting – a feature unique to us. This means, quite simply, they have no need for rails or guides in order to be adjusted or maintain their structure.
As a result, they are compact and light, so don't become a hindrance to the landscape photographer who prefers to travel light.Watch The Lens Hoods Video
Designed to suit the needs of most photographers this works as both a simple lens shade, and in conjunction with filters. It comes assembled with two filter slots, but can also be configured to take different filter combinations. It is ideal for shading wide-angle lenses on DSLR, 35mm SLR and medium format cameras.
The much larger bellows that are a characteristic of the Wide-angle Hood mean it can be used in conjunction with wide or very large lenses – reducing the chances of vignetting that would arise if a standard hood were to be used.
