NiSi Filtersystem Review English
Earlier this year I got in touch with the brand NiSi. Some days later I received a box with a lot of products to play with.
To start with NiSi I got these products:
- V5 Pro – Filterholder
- Neutral Density Filter ND8 (0.9)
- Graduated Neutral Density Filter ND8 (0.9) Soft
First impressions | Unboxing:
When I got my hands on the boxes I realized immediately that the content is well secured. The filters and the filterholder are really well packed up so nothing can destroyed while shipping.
The filters come in a reinforced leatherette case and in addition every single filter is packed up with paper. This is a very professional and awesome first view on the product. The leatherette cases are good to go and you can drop them into your backpack without fear of any damage.
I got another case in the same design which can hold six different filters at the same time. Unfortunately there is no flap to fix the case at my belt.
The filterholder comes also in a similar case like the fiters do. This case contains the V5 – Pro filterholder, three adapter rings (62mm, 72mm, 77mm) and the Polarizer.
NiSi did an awesome solution on the CPL which I like from the first time I used it. The Polarizer is integrated into the filterholder. You can handle the filter with a small wheel while other filters are in use. The mechanics are very smooth and well build.
Graduated Neutral Density Filter NiSi GND8 (0.9):
The 100mm System is the one which I use. The filters are as big as 100mm x 150mm. If you get your hands on these filters fort he very first time you will feel and see the huge quality. Real glas with nano coating will give you a lot of trust even before you made a first image with it. After shooting the first images the filters don’t disappoint. The images are as sharp as without any filters and you won’t find any colorcast even you have used two filters combined.
When I’m shooting storms there is a lot of wind dust und sometimes rain n the air. Filters are getting dirty really quick but with the great coating the filters are clean again very quick. All you need is just a lens cleaning cloth. That is really satisfying because I have more time to shoot the storms instead of cleaning my filters.
Neutral Density Filter ND8 (0.9):
The size oft he neutral density filter is 100mm x 100mm. You must use it in the filterholder like the GND filters. When I used two filters at the same time with 16mm wide angle on full frame there was no vignetting. The quality oft he filters is as awesome as the GND filters.
NiSi Filtersystems are absolutely high end products. There is no colorcast, the sharpness is not impaired, cleaning is fast and very simple, filters are delivered with a great looking and working case, The V5 – Pro filterholder is working perfectly and is very accurately processed. The integrated polarizer (included in filterholder V5 – Pro) is a one of a kind solution! I love it!
NiSi is without a doubt a high end filter producer and I highly recommend the products.
If you are looking for new filters NiSi should be the solution.
