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.
