    Does anyone know what's up with Lee filters? I've been looking to buy a filter holder and/or hood but B&H, Freestyle, Calumet, and Adorama all have them out of stock or on backorder. I've also tried visiting their website at leefiltersusa.com but get a park page. A lot of the Cokin stuff seems to be on backorder too. Does anyone know where I can find these products in stock?

    Robert White in the UK will probably have stock, but you will have to cop the postage...

    Stock is low everywhere. They are popular items. Robert White is a good option.

    If you want grads/reverse grads which fit the lee holder, Singh-Ray make them... In my opinion they are more neutral than the lee grads.

    Also, they come in Cokin 'P' size and are substantially less expensive than the 4"x6" size.

    Just the other day I bought a hood and holder at Calumet in San Francisco. Maybe they could ship direct?

    Lee are unable to make enough to satisfy demand - they told me this at Focus this year.

    I think they need to increase their production capacity - a business is very vulnerable to competition under such circumstances.
