    Always remember that the exposure will go up exponentially whenever you use the big stopper.

    The longest I have ever done was 45 mins. This was shot in Perth (without any filters of course).

    Cool! nice picture! wah 45mins very long leh.....so you just stopped down to acheive the long exposure?

    Are you refering to LEE GND or other brands?

    Dear Bro

    Can someone show a picture of the Big Stopper....

    I am on Cokin P holder with Tian Ya ND filter.... I am wondering if Lee or B+W ND 10 can be used on this???

    I am new to this, so I got some queries..... is ND4= 2 stops, ND8=3 stops?? I tried to stack my Tian Ya ND4 & ND8 but have a color cast....

    Thank you...

    The Cokin Z holder lets in too much light. You don't want light seepage at such long exposures.

    I think Lee's are worth the money, even its filter holder system. I really don't like my Z-holder. It feels so cheap.

    Here's a link to a review of the Big Stopper (with images of the product): Big Stopper

    There is a foam gasket outlining towards the outter edges.

    Happy reading!

    This price is for hitech filters.

    Just asked TK last week:
    Hitech GND 0.3, 0.6, 0.9, 1.2 are $90 each.
    GND set of 0.3, 0.6, 0.9 is $200.
    GND set of any 3 combination is $235.

    Hitech ND 0.3, 0.6, 0.9, 1.2 are $60 each.
    ND set of 0.3, 0.6, 0.9 is $120.
    No choice of any 3 price.

    Lee Foundation kit still out of stock.

    I never knew they actually carried Lee stocks so far... Anyone bought any Lee items from them in the past? I think they waiting for their Lee stocks to come in... Only Hitech since they've opened at Funan.

    $90 for GNDs, that should be what I've paid for.

    Thanks for the info!

    I think they carried LEE filters even after moving to Funan but it's always out of stock, so maybe getting from online would be faster

    I stand corrected then. Just yesterday, I visited the store, and saw some typically colourful Lee boxes under the counter. Not a whole lot, maybe their stocks clear very fast!

    Oh maybe that's the filter holders? The boxes are really quite colourful
    If I'm not wrong, I think the filters come in black pouches. But they told me that the hitech filters sell faster.

    I believe the ring adaptors are colourful kinds as well... What I saw was not as big, so I'd assume just the rings.

    Yes, hitech filters sell faster because they are usable on Lee holders. The only filter from Lee I'd recommend is the Big Stopper (for starters), everything else would be hitech.

    Those looking for the Lee rings and foundation kit, Cathay got stock today. Better call and reserve before it's all gone in a flash again.
