Seven5 Micro Filter System

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 the Big, Little and Super Stoppers..

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.

The Seven5 System Overview


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.

Quick Start Videos

Get Started with the Seven5 System

LEE Seven5 Micro Filter System Filters

Seven5 Starter Kit

The Starter Kit contains one filter holder and one 0.6ND Hard Grad. The adaptor ring needs to be purchased separately.

LEE Seven5 Micro Filter System Polariser

Seven5 Polariser

The Seven5 Micro Filter System features its own circular polarising filter. The unique clip-on design means it can be snapped onto the front of the holder and rotated independently of any graduated filters also in use.

Seven5 Adaptor Rings

The adaptor ring screws onto the camera's lens and, in turn, the filter holder clips onto the adaptor ring.

This system enables you to use the same filters with a wide range of different lenses - simply purchase different adaptors for your different lens filter thread sizes.

Seven5 adaptor rings are available
in the following thread sizes:

37, 37.5, 39, 40, 40.5, 43, 46, 49, 52, 55, 58, 60, 62, 67 and 72mm, as well as a special adaptor for Fuji X100/X100s cameras.

Seven5 System Limits:

Photographers using large diameter lenses with filter threads larger than 72mm should use the 100mm System rather than the small and portable Seven5 System.

See our tips for using 100mm ND Grads effectively on crop sensor cameras.

Out of Town: ND Filter Set for the Seven5 System

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.

Seascape: ND Filter Set for the Seven5 System

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.

Urban: ND Filter Set for the Seven5 System

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.

Using the LEE100 System on Crop Sensor Cameras

Sensor size matters

The area of transition of a LEE100 ND Grad will appear bigger, extending over more of the scene, on a crop sensor camera than on a full frame sensor.

This effectively makes the grad "softer", preventing precise alignment and giving markedly different results when compared to its effect on a full frame camera.

Go harder

One solution is to select a harder grad, for instance instead of a LEE100 ND Hard Grad select a Very Hard.

…or use the Seven5 System

ND Grads for the Seven5 system have tighter areas of transition than those for the LEE100 or SW150 Systems. This results in a comparable effect between a LEE100 Grad on a full frame camera and a Seven5 Grad on a mirrorless camera with a crop sensor.
