K-Series Holder Review – Sander Poppe

A few months back, I was asked the question, “Would you like test our new H&Y K-series filter set and compare it with the Lee filters you use at the moment…” Why not… Yes, I like my Lee filter set very much. In my opion there is no better filter set than the Lee products…


This new H&Y Filters have blown me away. The glass quality is superb, and that’s not all. I like very much the magnetic filter holder system. You don’t need to struggle in the field. The filters and the holder are magnetic to each other.

And one of the nicest things. The filters have on there side some nice rubber waves. When you want to put the filter a little more up, one rubber wave and you are there.

So, now some tests in the field. And that was a little challenge. Last month was the weather not very great. When I was on my work: very nice skies. When I was off work, in the weekends, dull weather. But finally I ‘ve some nice shots to show.

The photos on top are with the H&Y filter set, the photos below are without. Image pairs are made with the same conditions and the same camera-settings.
