We’re excited to share this new venture with you. We hope you enjoy it! 

We love seeing the different ways people use our lighting filters. One recent example of this was an installation by Connor Robertson from Installate Design. 

Connor’ background in events and structural/civil engineering enabled him to create this geodesic skeleton structure made of 40 individual hollow perspex frames. Each panel is covered in a different coloured gel from LEE Filters. The panels in the structure can easily be replaced with any lightweight material to create infinite bespoke ideas from a dj booth to pop-up promo tent.

Connor chose LEE because of the vast range of colours available. He loved the way the quality of the light reinforced the visual importance of the design and that the vibrant colours he chose gave an impression of clean precision and beauty.

New from LEE Filters! The ProGlass Series for the Seven5 System

With the increasing popularity of the ProGlass Filters for the LEE 100mm system, we’ve added the ProGlass filters to our newest Seven5 System.

When shooting digitally, light at the infrared and ultraviolet ends of the spectrum can be problematic. The ProGlass range of filters has been designed with this in mind. These glass neutral density filters are optimised for use with digital cameras, as they absorb more infrared and ultraviolet light than traditional ND filters. The result is a punchier image, with less discoloration in adverse lighting conditions.

The ProGlass ND filter is an extremely high quality glass ND standard filter optimised for use with digital cameras, but equally useful for film.

This new filter uses a surface coating made from evaporated metal, and therefore provides very even absorption across the visible spectrum and through the UV and Infra Red regions.

Two filters are currently available for sale. 

0.6 ProGlass ND Standard

A glass filter that reduces exposure by 2 stops  without affecting colour balance.

0.9 ProGlass ND Standard

A glass filter that reduces exposure by 3 stops  without affecting colour balance.
