Product Code: SUP15100U2
The Super Stopper is a neutral density filter that reduces the light entering your lens by 15 stops.
It gives the photographer an opportunity to shoot during the middle of the day, even in bright sunlight. Traditionally, such conditions were considered unfavourable for photography, because of the harsh nature of the light. However, with the Super Stopper filter fitted, the softness that arises from any movement contrasts pleasingly with areas of bright light, creating an effect rarely seen in photography before now.
Lee Stopper filters are used for extending exposure times which has the effect of making anything that is moving become blurred or ghost like, for example clouds, waterfalls, rivers or the sea. Used creativity they can change the way we look at moving objects and capture a real sense of time passing in your images. Stoppers are not limited to landscapes and can be used to blur crowds of people, traffic, or anything in motion.
With its 15 stops of light-reducing power, the Super Stopper sits at the head of the Stopper family, joining the Big and Little Stoppers in the long-exposure photography revolution. Together, they have changed the way we look at moving objects and their relationship to the land, and have given photographers new ways of expanding their creativity.
The Super Stopper is designed for use in bright conditions during the middle of the day - a time that’s traditionally considered unsuitable for photography because of the harsh, contrasty nature of the light. However, with the Super Stopper filter fitted, the softness that arises from any movement contrasts pleasingly with any areas of bright light, creating an effect rarely seen in photography before now. Like all the filters in the Stopper family, the Super Stopper is constructed from the high-quality optical glass and is supplied in a metal case for protection. It has only a minimal colour cast that is easily corrected in postproduction.
