A video on how lee filters are made.
It was sent to me by a camera club colleague and I was gobsmacked at the manual processes
No wonder they are so expensive..... john

I've been looking at getting a filter kit recently so this video was of great interest. It does give a good insight into how Lee Filters operates and sort of explains why their filters are so expensive and why shops never seem to have any stock.

I wonder how old the video is as it's at least 2 years old as that is when it was posted.
