    Yes I do. But have to hold torch light in the dark to keep 2 hands free. If I have a folder with everything laid out, I can just feel and know exactly what I am pulling out, instead of fumbling with this and that.

    I'm going that route as well... Going to skip ND filter altogether and go for GNDs... The only ND filter I'm targetting for is Big Stopper... the rest will only be GNDs...

    I think Hitec is just as good if not better - cheaper too! Btw, Lee's normal GNDs are resin also.. unless you get their glass type...

    The only thing I'm interested from Lee right now is the Stopper... Everything else I can live with Hitech...

    I see. I was told the same thing, but since I started with LEE, I was advised to continue with it, maybe there might be problems when stacking filters etc

    Glass type should be more durable...but also higher risk

    Depends on who you hear it from...from the Lee sellers, they'd say nothing else would work except for LEE... For the Hitech sellers, likewise also...

    Why not do a search on the google and see what worldwide photographers say?

    True
    I heard it from a dealer of both LEE and Hitech, but I'll do a search for more opinions

    Well, salesmen from the same dealer will differ in opinion as well... So, we're going in circles...

    If you are using a Lee holder then the Hitech filters will do fine with them. I use the Lee system together with Singh Ray and Hitech filters and no problems at all.

    Of GNDs. I checked with TK last week and they said they have an order from April still not yet fulfilled by the manufacturer. May I know when did you check?

    Are you looking for a specific one that is out of stock?

    Bought a ND around 2-3 weeks back. I saw a whole bunch of GNDs in the box as well.

    Thanks! Will check with them again.
    I'm looking for 0.9 hard and soft. I think there are Hitech and LEE filters together in bunches in the box. Perhaps they went out of stock after you bought... but then again, new stock might have arrived recently

    Can't be bro. The box are all Hitechs. And I saw this big big stack of mostly GNDs. Only Hitechs because Hitech pack their filters in clear plastic sleeves. LEE filters are packed differently, in black cloth cases.

    BTW, I found a solution in terms of cases for 4" filters. TK just brought in a bunch of 4"x6" filter pouches/folders. The version I bought can fit 6 GNDs and it cost $18. But I might still go for another solution, which I found in mustafa, similar pricing, but I prefer it more personally. But need a very slight modification.
