NiSi 100x150mm Nano IR Soft GND8 Filter - Explorer Collection
The NiSi Explorer range is tougher than the Optic range and with that comes a slight quality reduction. NiSi Ambassadors however tell me that they are unable to see the difference. If an ambassador can’t then maybe us mere mortals should be content.
As a seasoned hiker I can tell you that I am 0% keen to carry glass with me. There is one exception however and it is these super hardened ND filters. Explorer by name and explorer by nature (no pun intended), I use the NiSi 100x150mm Nano IR all of the ND filters from the Explorer range as they are far less likely to break if dropped or knocked.
What makes the NiSi 100x150mm Nano IR filters so hard? They are made from B270 tempered glass.
Each filter is made to reduce the light across the surface of the filter in a graduated form from nothing to the full ND8. This allows you to control the highlight / bright area of say a sunrise or a mountain range with some of it in sunshine and other areas in shade and in doing so to allow the shadows to come through.
Where the ND8 is at full effect it will reduce the power of that light to 1/8 of the actual light had you not used the filter. This is also known as 3 stops of light.
Another important part of the NiSi success is that they do not cause any vignetting. On top of that they are very high definition given the Nano coatings on both sides and they are also water and oil repellent.
The NiSi Explorer Collection 100x150mm Nano IR Soft Graduated Neutral Density Filter – GND8 (0.9) – 3 Stop is part of our Explorer Series for made for adventure. The filters feature a special glass hardening process that makes them double the strength of typical glass filter. The Explorer series are much less prone to accidental breakage and perfect for active photographers.
The NiSi 100mm filter system is great for cameras with lenses that have a standard filter thread from 49 mm to 95mm.
