GoPro filter from Lee

LeeBug2

Soon everyone owns a GoPro. Even the average joe just wanting cool video playing with the kids. For everyone using them proessionally one thing missing is an easy way to add filters, mostly ND. You see GoPro shots all over television and even in film. But they stand out a little mostly perhaps because of the shutter which can’t be set manually.   The exposure is controlled by the shutter speed, which outdoors in the sun, is often very fast. Being able to add ND would take shutter speeds down allowing for some motion blur.

Enter Lee Bug System.  To start off with it seems like 0.9 ND grad (3 stops) and polarizer are the two filters being offered, but I am sure we’ll see a range of regular ND’s soon.
I am not sure about the claim on LeeFilters site that the ND Grad filter “can be left in place for pretty much all outdoor filming and the effects are plain to see.” but to each his own. 🙂

I work as Director of Photography based in sweden. One of my main strengths is finding the best possibilities for a chosen location, lighting it in a given time frame and producing images meeting, and hopefully exceeding the producers vision. After more than 15 years of working with the moving image I still enjoy the challange of getting “the shot” and seeing the light I own/run a production company in Malmo Sweden, www.pixeltouch.se
