NiSi launches new Circular Black Mist filter
NiSi has launched its newest filter, the Circular Black Mist Filter, which is designed to lower overall contrast, while softening and enhancing highlights to create a more “cinematic” feel to videos and still imagery.
According to NiSi, the eﬀect of the filter can be best seen when a subject is backlit with a strong light source such as studio lighting, bright street lights, natural light though a window or late afternoon sun.
The company says that flaring of bright light sources creates an 'ethereal glow' and softness that can be used to soften wrinkles and blemishes on skin, making it a useful addition to portrait or wedding photographers, cinematographers, street photographers and even landscape / cityscape photographers.
The NiSi Black Mist Filter comes in a circular filter for standard screw threads in 49mm, 67mm, 72mm, 77mm and 82mm thread sizes. Eﬀect densities are available in 1/8, 1/4 and 1/2 for varying levels of diﬀusion and contrast reduction.
The filter has a brass frame and features NiSi's Nano Coating to make cleaning easy and improve scratch resistance.
The new filters start at $89. You can find out more at the NiSi Australia website.
