Lee Filters

Lee Camera FiltersLee Filters was at NAB this year showing their filters not only for lighting but also for cameras.  Their lines of quality filters for all sizes of cameras whether you have a compact to a cinema size lens, Lee has the filters that can work for you.

The Zircon range of filters is designed specifically for use with LED based luminaires, addressing the fact that LED lighting intensity can contribute to rapid fade and failure times of standard lighting filters.  Made of a 180-micron substrate, they are more than double the thickness of a normal lighting filter, making them more durable and easy-to-use

Historically color filters have been designed to work with 3200K Tungsten sources.  Those who have used the standard color filters on Cool White 5600-6000K sources have found it ends up looking like a completely different color. The problem is exacerbated when mixing Cool White LED and Tungsten sources together, where obtaining a color match from the two different sources is virtually impossible

Lee filters has solved the problem by providing a range of colors now matched for Cool White LED.  These new LED Filters  are designed for use on Cool White CT LED to give a visual color match to the existing colors on Tungsten CT.  Designated as CL, a match for Lee 181 (Congo Blue) on a Tungsten unit would be a CL181 on a Daylight Source.  The units are not color correction (5600K to 3200K) but rather an adjustment to create consistent color from a higher CT source.
