Lee Seven5 Little Stopper
Sorry, there are no more available.
The Lee 75x90mm Seven5 Little Stopper is designed for long-exposure photography and reduces the light entering the lens by up to 6 f-stops. The Little Stopper is ideal for low-light conditions at the beginning and end of the day (when the Big Stopper's ten stops may prove too much), allowing you to enjoy increased flexibility with exposure lengths. By increasing the length of exposure time, the Little Stopper adds a ghostly, time-passing effect of anything that moves (E.G. sea, clouds, waterfalls, people etc.). The Seven5 Little Stopper is compatible with the Lee Seven5 Filter Holder (not included) and comes in a smart, protective pouch.
Seven5 Little Stopper: Key Features
6-stop long exposure ND filter
75x90 mm high-quality glass
Seven5: For Compact System Cameras
Allows the use of slower shutter speeds
Great for landscape photographers
Creates a smooth blurred effect in the water and clouds
The Little Stopper can give increased flexibility with exposure lengths in the lower light at the start and end of the day. This often means that detail and texture can be retained in areas of movement such as the sky and water, while still conveying a sense of time passing.

Simply select the correct adaptor ring for your lens thread, screw it onto the lens, snap on the filter holder and drop in the appropriate filter
With a meter reading of 1/8sec at f/16, for example, your exposure with the Little Stopper would become eight seconds at f/16. In many shooting conditions, this means that detail and texture in areas of movement such as the sky and water would be retained, while still conveying a sense of time passing.
How to use a Stopper
First compose your image before fitting the Stopper.
Take a meter reading without the filter in place, and set your desired aperture and shutter speed.
Use the exposure tables to find the correct exposure. Your filter will have come with a printed exposure table.
With the Stopper inserted into the slot nearest the lens, attach the filter holder as usual and make your exposure.
Always use the sturdiest tripod you can when making long exposures, and take care not to knock the camera or tripod. Cover your viewfinder before releasing the shutter to avoid light encroaching onto the sensor or film and causing flare.

Professional hints: Combining a Stopper with other filters
All the Stopper filters can be used in conjunction with other filters such as Neutral Density Graduated Filters. This gives an even greater level of control and creative possibilities.
Keep the Stopper closest to the lens
Other filters should be set up and positioned in the filter holder as normal before using the Stopper filter. Remember to keep the slot nearest the camera free for the Stopper. Ensure the foam seal is facing the backplate to prevent light getting behind the filter and causing flare.
