150x170mm ND8 (0.9) 3 Stop Medium GND Filter
150x170mm GND Medium 3 Stop filter with a medium transition is particularly useful for images featuring buildings, small mountains and other elements that protrude from the skyline. The filter is denser in the upper part and fades to the centre, with a medium transition line between the dense and light areas. The transition zone of GND Medium filter is 40% smaller than that of a typical Soft GND. The GND 3 Stop Medium is perfect as a first filter thanks to its versatility. It can be combined with a Soft or Hard / Reverse filter to further add flexibility to your creativity.
150x150mm ND64 (1.8) 6 Stop ND Filter
The 150x150mm 6 Stop (ND64) filter is a neutral density (ND) filter that uniformly reduces the amount of light entering the lens. ND filters are used to manage light and slow the shutter to produce long exposure work. The ND 6 Stop 150x150mm is made of lens grade optical glass exclusive to NiSi, with anti-reflective treatment, IR blocking and Nano Coating®. The 6-stop ND64 ND filter is generally used during the golden hour to create 1-2 minute exposures for smooth water or clouds. A 6 Stop is also excellent for capturing the dynamism of the water while maintaining a certain consistency, usually by shooting before or at the beginning of the golden hour.
150x150mm ND1000 (3.0) 10 Stop ND Filter
The 150x150mm 10 Stop (ND1000) ND filter is a neutral density filter that uniformly reduces the amount of light entering the lens. The ND1000 10 Stop is also used during the day, outside the golden hour, since high ambient light requires more “light blocking”. This filter can extend exposures up to 5 minutes during the golden hour with the appropriate settings. The extreme versatility and propensity for experimentation make it one of the most popular filters for photographers.
NiSi Caddy – All-in-one case for 150mm system
The NiSi 150mm Caddy holds up to 7 filters (three ND 150x150mm and four GND 150x170mm) as well as a 150mm holder (you can also carry a Classic Holder or a NiSi S5 Holder). It features an adjustable shoulder strap and can be mounted on a tripod for easy access, it was built with a light material which protects the filters from scratches.
NiSi filters are all made of the highest quality lens grade optical glass which has a higher transmittance than standard optical glass such as B270 and much higher than resin. This ensures that no detail is lost in your images. As we are the only manufacturer to use lens grade optical glass for our filters, there are no comparable quality filters on the market.
All NiSi square filters benefit from the use of the exclusive Nano Coating treatment which makes the filter water-repellent and oleophobic for perfect sharpness. NiSi filters also use IR technology to block infrared light, and therefore eliminate the risk of magenta colour cast. The special Nano Coating coating on both sides minimises unwanted reflections and gives the NiSi neutral density filters water-repellent and oleophobic properties.
Weatherproof and durable.
The Nano® Coating treatment gives the filter the quality of repelling water and oils, making cleaning very easy even in extreme conditions or with the presence of seawater. The finishing of the edges and the rounded corners improve grip make our filters easier to handle and rounded corners are far less likely to break off. Our filters and holders are created to be used outdoors, in any weather situation, enjoy photography in its purest essence
