In news that some landscape photographers have no doubt been anticipating for some time, LEE Filters has unveiled new versions of its photographic filters with one crucial difference – they’re circular, not square.

The new selection is called LEE Elements, and it includes five filters: a CPL (circular polarizer), two variable ND filters, the 6-stop Little Stopper ND, and of course, the iconic Big Stopper ND, which provides ten stops of light reduction. It’s hugely popular with landscape photographers for its mega light-controlling abilities, making it possible to shoot long exposures in all sorts of lighting conditions.
