The LEE Filters Field Pouch: Ensuring your filters are close to hand when you need them!

In the past keeping your filters easily accessible and safe has been challenging. Now with our new, sturdy Field Pouch your filters remain free of dirt and dust, but are close by when you need them.

Constructed from a tough and durable fabric that can stand up to wear and tear, the Field Pouch features a concertina design with one slot per filter (maximum of 10 filters). It’s an invaluable accessory that gives photographers freedom to respond quickly to rapidly changing conditions with the right filter

The Field Pouch is designed to be versatile with three handy strap options: Over the shoulder, through your belt loop, or attached to your tripod head!

(Available in black or sand.)

Introducing the New Slimline 105mm Landscape Polariser from LEE Filters!

This new slimmer Polariser will go down to 16mm without vignetting when used with a two slotted filter holder on a full frame 35mm sensor.
However, the Landscape Polariser comes with an added advantage. It has a slightly warm bias, so not only is the photographer able to remove glare from shiny surfaces, or increase the contrast between blue sky and white cloud, they can also enhance the greens, browns and golds that are so often associated with photography in the landscape.

Because the Landscape Polariser screws onto the front of the holder, it leaves both slots in the holder free, allowing the photographer to add further filters of their choice, opening up even more creative possibilities.

(105mm rotating Landscape Polariser fits with a 105mm Accessory Ring (sold separately) on the front of the filter holder.)

Photographer Karl Taylor stopped by the LEE Filters booth at Photokina for a look at our newly launched product, the Landscape Polariser!

Created in mind for use with wider angle lenses, the new slimline Landscape Polariser combines the quality and clarity of the standard LEE Filters polariser with the subtle enhancing characteristics of a warm-up filter. Not only does it allow the photographer to reduce reflections and intensify the contrast between blue skies and clouds, it also subtly boosts the green, gold and brown tones that so often characterise a landscape scene.

*Please note: This product was just launched at Photokina. More detailed information will be available soon.*
