Contains a selection of the mostly commonly used filters for long exposure photography. Very nice pouches to store the holder and filters in. No visible colour shift or vignetting in any of the photos I have taken with this kit. Inclusion of some blockers to prevent light leaks is a great addition

Long Exposure Filter Kit #1, Joel Tjintjelaar Signature Edition
Joel Tjintjelaar is the world’s leading architectural fine art photographer. Joel typically makes 5-8 minute exposures using up to 16 stops of ND to create surrealism in clouds and water. The Long Exposure Kit comes with 3, 6, and 10 stops of ND. This combination is extremely versatile, allowing the shooter to use 3, 6, 9, and 10 stops of ND, plus the magical 13 and 16 stops for true long exposure.

Firecrest is a multicoating applied to glass and is far-and-away the most technologically advanced filter manufacturing process on the market. Firecrest filters remove dyed resin from the filter manufacturing. The Firecrest multicoating is an rare earth metal coating applied to the glass through an electrolytic process. Most importantly, Firecrest technology gives our chief scientist unprecedented control over modifying specific frequencies of the light spectrum. The result is hyper-neutral NDs, with tailored reductions of ultraviolet, visible spectrum light, near-infrared and infrared.

Neutral Density (or ND) filters produce a grey neutral effect and are used to reduce light in photography, enabling control over exposure time and depth of field without affecting color or contrast. ND's are made in different densities according to the level of light reduction from 1 stop to 10 stops (even 13 and 16 stops) of light.
The 3 and 6 stop filters in this kit will moderately increase your exposure times for landscape images, but when combined with the 10 stop you can achieve 2-3 minute exposures when shooting near the sea (13 stops) or 5-8 minute exposures for architectural photography (16 stops).

A bigger polariser giving you a wider view
With recent developments in optical design, it has become more common for lenses to have larger threads. To accommodate these advancements we have expanded our CPL (circular polarising filter) to 86mm. This means wider compatibility and better performance on a range of new wide-angle lenses. It also makes it compatible with a range of cinema lenses such as the Tokina 11-20MM T2.9.
The polariser can be fitted into either included rotating ring adapter, and becomes an integral part of the holder. The polariser is operated with an easy to use thumbscrew. This allows you to set your grads and then dial in the exact
polarising effect you want. Due to its free movement, this means you can leave the polarising filter (CPL) attached at all times and simply turn off the effect if not wanted. The construction of the filter also means you can use the CPL filter as an independent filter without the need of the holder.
More step rings, more flexibility.
For improved performance on an even wider range of lenses, the holder now ships with two rotating adapters as standard. These adapters allow the lens to sit closer to the filters helping with wide-angle photography. The kit
includes an 86mm - 86mm rotating adapter and a 86mm - 82mm adapter. For best performance on 77mm and smaller wide-angle lenses, it is recommended to use the included step rings from the 86-86mm rotating adapter.
