Light, portable and perfect for street photography and general picture-taking on-the-go, compact system cameras feature the flexibility of manual controls and interchangeable lenses, but it hasn't always been possible to make the most of filters with them – until now.
Comprising a lightweight, precision engineered filter holder, the LEE Filters Seven5 Micro Filter System is compatible with LEE's 75x90mm filter range - which includes a Polariser, Neutral Density Filters and both the Big Stopper and Little Stopper.
Simply select the correct adaptor ring for your lens thread, screw it onto the lens, snap on the filter holder and drop in the appropriate filter.
In just a few moments you're ready to shoot.
Landscape photographer Joe Cornish gives a practical guide to the Seven5 Filter System. He demonstrates the adaptor and holder as well as running through all the key filters and why you might use them. This includes ND Grads, the Polariser and long exposure filters.
The Starter Kit contains one filter holder and one 0.6ND Hard Grad. The adaptor ring needs to be purchased separately.
The holder attaches to the lens via a screw-in adaptor ring. The adaptor ring is available in the following thread sizes: 37, 37.5, 39, 40, 40.5, 43, 46, 49, 52, 55, 58, 60, 62, 67 and 72mm.
We also have a ring specifically designed for Fuji X100/X100s cameras.
We have indexed over 500 lenses so you can quickly find the LEE System that's best for you.

Whether you need to balance the exposure between sky and foreground, eliminate distracting reflections from water or extend your exposure to convey a sense of peace and stillness, the Seven5 Deluxe Kit contains everything you need for creative photography.
Containing each of the items illustrated below, all you need to purchase in addition is the appropriate adaptor ring for your lens.
Steve Gosling demonstrates how you can enjoy no compromise landscape photography with a compact system camera and the LEE Seven5 Filter System. He walks through several shots in detail, using combinations of filters to capture scenes with real mood and drama.
All these sets have been compiled with the owners of the Seven5 Starter Kit in mind, as none of them duplicates its 0.6 ND Hard Grad.
Containing both a hard and a soft neutral-density graduated filter, the versatile Out Of Town filter set puts you in control of the contrast in a landscape, whether you’re shooting a mountainous scene or a close-up of the forest floor. A Big Stopper helps slow your exposure to convey movement in clouds, grasses or streams — or all three.
Our coastline never fails to inspire the photographer, and the Seascape filter set has been designed to make the most of the sea’s creative possibilities. A Big Stopper slows down the exposure by ten stops, rendering even the stormiest waters calm and serene. Two ND hard grads both balance the exposure and ensure a clean transition at the horizon. The grads can even be stacked to help balance extremely contrasty conditions.
Cities provide many exciting photographic challenges, and the Urban filter set helps to ensure you get the best from this often hectic environment. The two ND soft grads help hold back areas of brightness such as glass windows, and don’t forget, like all filters in the Seven5 system, they can be used upside down and at an angle, too. The Big Stopper means that moving figures will be blurred or, depending on the length of exposure, may even disappear altogether.
Craig Roberts spends a day in London with a highly portable Compact System Camera and the LEE Seven5 Filter System. He demonstrates how easy it is to get creative in a busy city environment and walks you through several shots in detail.

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.
Photographers using large diameter lenses on mirrorless cameras may need to use the 100mm system (as opposed to the Seven5 System designed for these cameras).
Because the sensor is smaller on these cameras the graduated part of the filter should be tighter. To achieve this with the 100mm system simply choose a harder grad than normal.
The Seven5 System is designed for mirrorless cameras and our Neutral Density Grads for this system have tighter areas of transition than the larger-sized filters of the 100mm and SW150 Systems.
This results in a comparable effect between a 100mm Grad on a full frame camera and a Seven5 Grad on a mirrorless camera with a crop sensor.
The Seven5 System includes a full range of resin and some glass filters, which are sized at 75x90mm.
This includes a Polariser, Neutral Density Filters and the Little, Big & Super Stoppers.
In the past keeping your Seven5 system components and filters easily accessible has been challenging. Now with our sturdy System Pouch your entire Seven5 filter system remains safe and close by when needed.
The System Pouch holds a Seven5 Filter Holder, Polariser and 8 Filters and is made from a tough and durable fabric that stands up to wear and tear. Inside it features a handy concertina design with one slot per filter.
Available in black or forest green.
The System Pouch is designed to be versatile and it comes with these three handy strap options included:
The Seven5 Hood has been designed to snap easily to the front of the filter holder, and will shade the lens when you are out and about.
The Seven5 Polariser will fit easily inside the Hood when needed.
Keeping your filters clean and free of scratches is of paramount importance. The LEE Filters wrap holds three filters, and serves a dual purpose: not only does it keep your filters safe, but it also doubles up as a cleaning cloth.
