NiSi S5 Holder | Landscape Polariser | Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L (Tilt – Shift)
The NiSi S5 filter holder with Landscape Polariser NC is ideal for landscape photographers who want to combine an ultra wide angle lens such as the Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L with a square filter system that allows you to use a screw-in Landscape polarising filter and GND/ND filters.
The 150mm NiSi S5 filter system is in CNC machined aluminium alloy; the 360° rotating holder allows the use of a screw-in polariser and two 150mm filters (2mm thick). Using the NiSi S5 for Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L allows you to tilt and shift using up 2 square filters (for example one ND and one GND) together with a Circular Landscape Polariser (included) with no vignetting even at maximum tilt/shift. A real unique, and patented, design by NiSi.
An external ring that allows you to rotate the CPL polariser from the outside even with mounted filters. This unique feature of the NiSi S5 allows you to adjust the polariser with extreme precision using the external wheel, and therefore it is much more comfortable than using the 150mm square polariser of the other types of 150mm holders. In addition, the Landscape polariser is included in the package along with the bag.
The Landscape NC polarizer, is NiSi’s Enhanced® CPL, with a maximum polarization of 99.9%* that emphasizes the natural colours of the scene. It also features Nano® Coating (NC) treatment that protects it and makes it completely water-repellent for easy cleaning. NiSi S5 Holder for Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L includes the Landscape polariser in this kit, thanks to the panted design you can rotate the filter even with 2 square filters installed and remove it if necessary.
Thanks to the customised design, the NiSi S5 Holder for Canon Tilt-Shift 17mm f/4L does not vignette with the landscape polariser and 2 ND / GND filters.
Review by Beno Saradzic
* The maximum polarisation changes from scene to scene depending on the incidence of light (position of the sun) and the framed material. In fact, the polariser has an effect only on the polarised light of non-metallic surfaces. The NiSi Landscape Enhanced® polariser, in suitable situations, reaches 99.9% polarisation. By turning it is possible to choose the preferred degree of polarisation. The NiSi Landscape Enhanced® polariser is the first choice of many professional landscape photographers.
