    Where to buy lee filters

    I'm looking to buy a Lee filter system but all the prices I've seen appear to be strangely similar. Is there a place that sells a bit cheaper or is there a bit of price fixing?

    Re: Where to buy lee filters

    Hi Martin

    There are a few places where I buy mine from.

    Robert White http://www.robertwhite.co.uk/

    Teamwork http://www.teamworkphoto.co.uk/

    Speed Graphic http://www.speedgraphic.co.uk/

    BTW Hitech filters will fit the Lee holder and are quite a bit cheaper. I've got a couple of their graduated ND's and they're very good. They are also available from the firms in the list above.

    Hi Martin, I would recommend any of the three Steve has mentioned, though I buy my Lee filters from Speed Graphic.

    Another Landy enthusiast, what model of 110 do you you have?

    For Richard. Off thread

    Hi Richard
    I been meaning to mention to you that I'm having problems opening the links in your website. The home page comes up ok but none of the links work. Is it me or are you still developing it?

    Re: For Richard. Off thread

    I'm supposed to be developing it and I was expecting to have it finished by now. I'm really good at starting things but never finishing them off. I'm halfway through building an Access database to record the image data which I intended to use to populate the website. And the weathers' been too good to stay indoors and....

    I only put it up to receive some comments on the layout and I kind of forgot it was still there. Now you've reminded me I'll crack on with it, probably on Monday, the weather forecast doesn't look too good. But I'll have my new Land Rover by then...more excuses![img]/img/wwwthreads/smile.gif[/img]

    I'll remove the url from my sig until it's finished.

    Cheers

    Well, FTIW it looks good. And I know exactly what you mean about distractions. I had just started revamping mine in September 2002 when we dicided to move house. Finally got it finished in a 3 night burst in March this year! Anyway, best of luck with yours.

    I've got a 1991 Defender 110 station wagon 200TDi - actually great for landscape photography as you're head and shoulders above the hedges

    "as you're head and shoulders above the hedges"..............so presumably one could see into Jeri Ryan's back garden while she was sunbathing with such a vehicle? These Land Rovers are starting to intrest me!

    Why would Jeri be sunbathing with a Land Rover, Will? Is there something you're not telling us? :-)

    Re: Where to buy lee filters

    I did a price comparison of a Lee Filter Foundation kit, 72mm wideangle ring and P&P (if any).

    The results were:-
    Morco - 72.49
    Robert White - 72.85
    Silverprint - 81.16
    Speedgraphic - 84.15

    Whilst cheapest is not always best, and I would prefer to use a local photographic dealer (in Aberdeen?), Robert White and Morco were helpful on the phone and I'll probably shop with them when funds allow.
