Hi guys,

I'm going to San Francisco and Hawaii in mid October and I really want some Lee filters.
I'm thinking that the Lee Digital Kit would be perfect, but i can't find it in stock in the EU?!
So i tried the Lee Foundation Kit and the filters separate, but same problem... NOT in stock :evil:

So do you guys know were i can get them?

The reason it has to be in the EU is so i don't have to pay huge import taxes... (The CL strap cost me a total of 60 USD, lol! :lol: )

Thanks!

Victor, why did the strap cost so much? I valued it as 5 pounds when posting it from the UK, and as a EU country, do you even need to pay import tax from another EU member?

Are you saying you got charged $35 in tax and duty? That's ridiculous!

No normally we don't pay import taxes if it is from another EU country. I didn't undertand it either, but it's Denmark... If i wanted the strap i had to pay! And it's worth it! One awesome strap!
Everything is so expensive here! The cars cost 175% more than in the US :lol:

Most of the polarizer filters are in stock:

Most polyester sets are in stock:

The ND grads aren't well stocked though:

Okay I found a solution :D The Foundation Kit from StudioKitDirect and the Lee 0.6 ND/ND Grad from TeamWorkPhoto.

So now my question is... Should i get the ND Grad with a hard edge or soft edge?

You're welcome Victor!
I'd go for soft edge, although, ideally, you'd get both... :)
