This SW150 Oceanscape Pro kit is the perfect combination of filters for all your photography needs!
Landscape photographers have long understood the benefits of ultra-wide angle lenses, but their design constraints made the use of filters virtually impossible. Now, the SW150 Mark II filter system opens up opportunities for the creative use of filters, without the need to be concerned about vignetting.
The SW150 Mark II filter holder comes assembled with two filter slots and includes the SW150 Lightshield, enabling you to use neutral density graduated filters in combination with other filters. The included lightshield helps to prevent unwanted back reflections and creates a light tight seal enabling the use of Big or Little Stopper.
The Lee Big Stopper is a neutral density filter that reduces the amount of light entering your cameras lens by ten f/stops. By greatly extending exposure times the Lee Big Stopper has the effect of allowing anything that is moving in your image to become blurred or ghost like, for example clouds get wispy, waterfalls look silky, rivers become ribbons of color, and the ocean so mystical. The Lee Big Stopper ND filter can also be used on city landscapes to blur people or on roads and highways to blur traffic.
At six stops, the Little Stopper is ideal for those low-light conditions at the beginning and end of the day (when the Big Stopper's ten stops may prove too much), allowing you to enjoy increased flexibility with exposure lengths. In many shooting conditions, this means that detail and texture in areas of movement such as the sky and water would be retained, while still conveying a sense of time passing.
The Lee Little Stopper is a long-exposure filter that allows you to extend the exposure by approximately six stops, permitting either a longer shutter speed or a wider aperture - or a combination of the two. In the past, such long exposures have been problematic because of the potential for light leaks, but the Little Stopper features a foam gasket which fits firmly against the filter holder and ensures that a light tight seal is achieved.
A hard edge graduated filter is characterized by a very sharp transition between the clear and neutral density sections of the filter. A hard edge grad allows the photographer to control with great precision the desired effect of the image – especially when the transition between two areas in the frame is particularly abrupt, such as a flat horizon line over the ocean. The effect of the filter ‘carrying over’ from one part of the frame to another would be undesirable.
The SW150 Big Stopper & SW150 Little Stopper comes in a protective Metal tin.
