The Little Stopper is a neutral density filter that reduces the light entering your lens by six stops.

The Little Stopper is ideal for those low-light conditions at the beginning and end of the day (when the Big Stopper’s ten stops may prove too much), allowing you to enjoy increased flexibility with exposure lengths. In many shooting conditions the Little Stopper will retain detail and texture in areas of movement such as the sky and water, while still conveying a sense of time passing.

Long exposure filters are used to extend the length of an exposure (shutter speed). Extending the shutter speed allows anything that is moving in your image to become blurred or ghost like. Subjects such as clouds, waterfalls, rivers and the sea work particularly well. However the effect is not limited to landscapes, the filter can also be used on cityscapes to blur people or roads and motorways to blur traffic.

Calculating the correct exposure for a long exposure filter is very simple. Take a meter reading as normal WITHOUT the filter in place, and decide on the aperture required for the shot. If using a 6 stop long exposure filter you need to add 6 stops of exposure to the shutter speed that matches your chosen aperture (double the exposure length 6 times). For example a metered exposure of a 30th of a second at f11 would need to be increased by 10 stops making a new exposure time of 2 seconds.
