    Perhaps you can try the 3-filter wrap by LEE

    I have 4 filters. I wanted to get the LEE filter wallet. But TK don't sell it. And I haven't gone to CP to ask for them yet. But looking at the price, it is very very overprices. Adorama has a good one that is quite cheap. But how to order?

    Ah quick question , anyone using the Hitech 0.9 ND with Lee filters and holders ? Cos its only available in 4x4 , thinking it should work to cover the areas right ?

    Anyway did a quick check , ordering the Lee Filters + Foundation kit online shld be cheaper by 40-50 bucks , after factoring shipping fees of 50 bucks. But there seems to be limited stocks in Amazon and b&H

    Oops i think I could have confused myself over the GND and ND sizes. I tot the NDs will be the same size as the GNDs which is 100x150mm.

    So am I correct to say the NDs are 100x100mm as we do not need to shift the position of the NDs in the holder ? Haha .. I think i might have answered my question =S

    If I'm not wrong, TK only has the 3-filter pouch and not the 10-filter one. It may be out of stock now though... Compared to the 10-filter pouch, the price of the 3-filter one is more reasonable

    TK doesn't even have the 3 filter pouch. They ask me to consider using a CD case or improvise...

    Guys, I found a soft cloth material pouch (sized for PnS cams) at the Challenger. The size is just about the size of Hitech 100 GND filters (100X150). Can be used to store one filter (since only one opening). Price is about 12 ++ for non members. Not cheap I know...

    The cloth material looks similar to those for cleaning screens/lenses - cannot confirm on this.

    This is just in case you are looking for other options while waiting for the right pouch to come along. For me, I might consider getting more of this pouch when I have more filters and then find a hardcover casing for all the filters... Or modify the DVD casing...

    Think the alternative is to buy big pieces of micro fiber cloths and sew them into sleeves that can hold filters and put them in a normal pouch. But it will look ugly.

    Still dont understand why the original filters dont come with proper protection woot.

    My friend is telling me that Hitech filters scratches easily. Another is saying that minor scratches dont affect the picture output . Any feedback ?

    All slotted filters made of resin will scratch quite easy. The same goes for Cokin, or LEE filters made of resin. The glass ones are very very much more expensive, and are only offered as an option for NDs in LEE, or the very expensive Schneider optics label (makers of B+W)

    I used to label. Certainly helps. That's why I prefer to have one folder where I store them all in a certain order, so I know exactly what filter I am pulling out in the dark.

    Got a silly question for you guys. Don't you carry a flashlight with you when you shoot in the dark? It comes intuitively to me 'cos when I hike in the mountains in the dark, I most certainly need one.

    If I'm not wrong, micro scratches will develop but will not have much impact on the resulting image. Singh Ray filters tend to scratch more easily
