This is the Lee Big Stopper 10 ND Filter (Glass) for 100mm System [LEEBS10100U2]
By greatly extending exposure times the Big Stopper has the effect of allowing anything that is moving in your image to become blurred or ghost like, for example clouds, waterfalls, rivers, and the sea. The filter can also be used on cityscapes to blur people or on roads and motorways to blur traffic. The Big Stopper can be used in conjunction with other filters such as Neutral Density Graduated Filters. Other filters should be set up and positioned in the filter holder as normal before using the Big Stopper, remembering to keep the slot in the filter holder nearest the lens free for the Big Stopper.
How to use the Big Stopper
Before fitting the Big Stopper, first compose your image.
Take a meter reading without the filter in place, and set your desired aperture and shutter speed.
Multiply your exposure by a factor of ten. For example, if your meter reading suggests an exposure of 1/125sec at f/11, with the Big Stopper fitted, your exposure becomes eight seconds at f/11. If your meter reading suggests an exposure of two seconds at f/11, with the Big Stopper fitted, your exposure becomes a whopping 32 minutes.
With the Big Stopper inserted into the slot nearest the lens, attach the filter holder as usual and make your exposure.
Always use the sturdiest tripod you can when making long exposures, and take care not to knock the camera or tripod. Cover your viewfinder before releasing the shutter to avoid light encroaching onto the sensor or film and causing flare.

The image I made with it is the Barn in the user photos.
A turbulent sea can be turned into ocean of tranquility with this filter! it gives you ideas and tool to take your game to next level! There are no distortions and you don't have to sacrifice the image quality. If anything, some of my day-time shots where I did not want to slow down the shutter speed did not come out as good as the ones with this filter.
What is troubling is that it is not very big, so you have to make sure it is aligned properly in your adapter, otherwise you may get distortion at the edge and you have to crop it out but you will lose the original composition if you change image.
Also, sometimes you can't even get focus with this filter on at day-time because it is that dark. You can not see anything through your view-finder. So fist you have to set up the shot, and then you have to get focus, then you have to move it to manual-focus so it doesn't accidentally change or lose focus by trying to get one, then you have to carefully stick the filter in holder and hope not to change your comp or move your tripod.
So it is work......but all good things require work and a struggle! This filter is allowing me to create shots that i wanted to create! That is all that matters! There is nothing equivalent! There is no substitute!
I cannot tell you how much fun I'm having now and the whole new world this has opened up for me and my photography.
Is it pricey? Yep! Is it worth it? You better believe it :)
Much easier to use than I had thought, by the way.
I'm shooting a Nikon D7000 with the Tokina 11-16 and have not had any vignetting.
If you're on the fence about the cost here's my suggestion… don't put any $ into trying other systems, just start your savings with that money until you can go for it, you won't be sorry!!!
Understand you have to get a filter holder and a wide angle filter ring adapter. So expect another $150 on top of this. The alternative is to simply use rubber bands and make it stick to the front of a lens. Remember you can use step up/down rings so that you can just get one adapter and use it on any lens. Buy big and stop down (get it?).
* Stacking with a circular polarizer works well, with minor vignetting. It also adds 4 stops.
* The exposure guide is nice, but I prefer using LF Calculator or a similar app on my phone to do the calculations.
