LEE Filters Expands LEE100 System with New Filter Holder for Ultra-wide NIKKOR Zoom
LEE Filters, a leading manufacturer of high-quality lighting gels and photographic filters and a member of the Panavision family of brands, is expanding its award-winning LEE100 filter system with the addition of a new LEE100 holder specifically developed for Nikon’s NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f2.8 S ultra-wide zoom lens.
Physically larger than the standard LEE100 holder, this new filter holder is made from aluminium alloy and features a bespoke compression system for safe and secure placement on the lens barrel with optimised vignette performance. Visual “smart alignment” markings help the user correctly position the holder on the lens, and an integrated gasket and anti-reflective coating protect against light leak.
The new holder uses the same interchangeable, modular guide blocks as the standard LEE100 system, and innovative quick-change filter frames enable photographers to continue using their existing LEE 100x100mm standard and 100x150mm grad filters. Integrated handling tabs on the filter frames allow for easy positioning without having to directly touch the filter surface, mitigating fingerprints and increasing the filter’s usable visible area. A physical stop on the filter frames optimizes the filter’s position relative to the lens, ensuring the filter’s edge won’t drop into the shot. For optimum wide-angle performance with the new holder, LEE Filters is also introducing a newly designed line of foamless 100mm Stoppers.
The new LEE100 filter holder for Nikon’s NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f2.8 S is available globally through LEE Filters’ dealer network and in the UK through select LEE Filters dealers and LEE Direct.
