This amazing filter has forever changed long exposure photography. The Lee Big Stopper is a 10-Stop ND Filter that will produce breathtaking images. With the Big Stopper, just a single filter allows you to increase the exposure to many minutes, rendering clouds soft, water smooth and milky, car headlights as streaks of color, or people as abstract, blurred figures.
The Lee Big Stopper is a long-exposure filter that allows you to extend the exposure by approximately ten 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 Big Stopper features a foam gasket which fits firmly against the filter holder and ensures that a light tight seal is achieved.
Manufactured from high-quality glass, the Big Stopper fits the LEE100 Filter Holder and the 100mm Push-on Holder, so it can be used with a variety of lenses and even in conjunction with other types of filters, such as neutral density graduated filters.
The Big Stopper comes in a hard metal case and includes an easy to use exposure guide.
