With a lifespan of up to 200 times longer than standard lighting filters, the new Zircon range is designed to last. Lee Filter’s Research and Development team has developed a new way of producing filters that ensure they last longer when used with LED lights. Manufactured using a 180-micron material, they are more than double the thickness of a normal lighting filter.
There are 12 filters in the Zircon range; the five Minus Green filters remove the green casts often associated with LED lighting when using a digital camera. The four Warm Amber filters correct a range of different color temperature white LED so that they appear like Tungsten, while the three Diffusion filters offer different strengths of diffusion specifically designed for LEDs. Available in 4ft x 10ft rolls, 24in x 24in sheets and 12in x 12in Lighting Packs.
Lee Filters now has two apps available:
The new Lee Swatch app puts the complete range of Lee lighting filters on one screen and features a color picker so you can build palettes anytime. The app also features many of the tools on Lee Filter’s website, redesigned for use on a smartphone, including: Find a Dealer, Diffusion Finder, Gel Comparator, and Colour Temperature Calculator.
The Official Lee Filters Diffusion Comparator enables lighting designers to directly compare different diffusions lighting a model. The comparator is built from video clips of a real-world lighting setup using a single M8 source and each and every diffusion in the Lee range.
