    Default Lee Filters -Where to get them apart from Cathay Photo?

    Hi fellow Cs'ers,

    Requrie some assitance here. Looking for LEE wide angle folder 77mm for my 100X150mm GNDs Soft/Hard. Tired of holding handheld

    Asked and enquired almost most of the reputable shops in SG (OP,CP, TK, MS, J316 etc)
    Only CP carries but all out of stock, for 2 months straight (they advise to check again next yr, and i go "wth")

    Any bros out there using LEE filters system can advise where do your get urs apart from CP?
    Is there an reputable online store which u order and do share ur source if you can..

    GG west america (LA,SF) in 2 weeks time, wonder is there any camera stores that i can patronise that carries them.

    Any bros with prior experience, pls advise.

    Thanks in advance!

    Cheers!

    You can get it from www.Bhphotovideo.com or www.Robertwhite.co.uk.

    Service is much better than Cathay or anywhere else in Singapore. Hope that helps.

    I'm using the foundation kit. For the foundation kit, you still need to purchase an adaptor ring to suit the diameter of the lens that you are using.

    You can get the std. adaptor or the wide angle adaptor. Maybe can the biggest diameter to suit your lens then later get step down ring to suit other lenses. The step down rings are much cheaper.

    If you wanna buy from LA, there's a shop called Samy's camera. they're pretty widespread being in every other major town in CA. Check them out or Calumet Photographic. These 2 retail shops are the best to buy from in CA.
    I refuse to List my camer@ equipment here.

    It's 5yrs ago, so cant remember how much I paid for the individual items. I vaguely remember it was about $350 total for the foundation kit, WA adapter & ND soft grad.
