I know that these are hard to find, but could someone confirm that this is indeed the Lee Big Stopper

This is the Big Stopper but this is for compact interchangeable lens cameras and not DSLRs.

What you probably need is a 4x4" filter which can be found -

Good luck on getting one!

Somehow it just seemed too good to be true, I have been looking for one for quite some time... :(

Hint:

If you get some ugly (pink) color casts or a light leak with the big stopper use the eyepiece to close the optical viewfinder and the color casts are gone.

After reading some posts about the lack of Big Stoppers I just wanted to comment. Just bought mine today, and they still have more in stock at stavangerfoto.no

I have a question for those of you who have used the Lee system (100mm). Is it compatible with the Cokin Z system? I see that their adaptorrings and such are much cheaper.

After following this thread and others, and now being educated, I spotted a new 100mm Big Stopper on our local Craigslist for $100 a few days ago.  The person selling it had received two, due to ordering duplicates so long ago that he had forgotten,  I quickly grabbed it.  It was new and still sealed up.

Good find. 

Maybe he should have kept both to stack them.  I wonder what an 8 hour exposure would look like...   ;)

That might be like early 5D MK II users were doing ... taking photos with a lens cap on.

Mine is in the mail  :)
I have a question: does the big stopper come with the tin? I don't think a pouch will be adequate protection.
BTW, it seems they have raised the price to $ 160 (after I purchased, thank God!).

[Somehow it just seemed too good to be true, I have been looking for one for quite some time... :(

I suggest signing up to be notified by B&H if you are interested. I didn't have to wait long.

I have a question for those of you who have used the Lee system (100mm). Is it compatible with the Cokin Z system? I see that their adaptorrings and such are much cheaper.

I bought a SERK filter holder from Ebay- for $ 40 (including WA adapter ring) it is a really good alternative to the Lee and is quite well built. I hope to use it during the holidays and will post a short review afterwards.

Someone is selling this on our local CL for $ 180. Making most of the demand, I guess. Your seller wasn't greedy, evidently.

I too noticed the price increase.  I plan to sell my duplicate one (shipped from Adorama after I finally nailed one from B&H) on Ebay.  I guess I will try it at a "Buy It Now" price based on the current price plus Ebay fees and see what happens.  Did someone answer the question about the tin?  Yes, it does.  No, Neuro, it just seems it would be piggish to keep two when so many are still in need.........

For a primary landscape shooter, having two might make sense.  Imagine traveling to an exotic locale, getting up hours before dawn to hike through the cold night to a cliff top, setting up the perfect sunrise shot, then missing the holder slot with your nearly-numb fingers and accidentally dropping your Big Stopper to the rocky ground.  A second one would sure cone in handy right about then...   ;)
