NiSi unveils V7 100mm filter holder kit
NiSi has unveiled its newest 100mm filter holder kit, the V7.
The V7 allows for the easy use of up to three 100mm wide, 2mm thick filters along with an included and newly designed 'True Color' circular polariser filter. NiSi says the kit has no vignetting at 16mm with wide-angle lenses on full-frame.
The V7 is made from aviation-grade aluminum by CNC, and features a matte black frosted finish on the surface to minimise reflections. The V7 kit comes complete with the 100mm filter holder, an 'ultra-slim' True Color CPL, four adapter rings for the most popular wide-angle lenses (67mm, 72mm, 77mm, and 82mm), a lens cap, and a storage pouch.
It features a unique rotation wheel design, so the CPL filter can be rotated independently with filters still in place via a cog on the back of the filter holder.
The new True Color CPL prevents yellow cast introduced from many CPLs, and it uses a proprietary NiSi Pro Nano Coating to reduce unwanted reflections and provide a waterproof and oil-resistant layer to assist in the cleaning of unwanted fingerprints, dust, and water stains.
NiSi's new 'Point to Point' CPL design allows for easier guided installation of the CPL into the main 82mm adapter. By lining the white markers on the CPL up with the white mark on the main adapter and twisting, the CPL can be secured in place and removed with little effort.
At the same time, a unique clip system grips only along the edges of the filter avoiding contact with the surface. Filters are easy to insert, and contact with a filter’s main surfaces are avoided, particularly when using graduated filters.
After being fitted onto the adapter ring, the filter holder’s pull-and-release locking pin helps to provide a reliable connection that allows the holder to be rotated 360°. To further secure the position of the filter holder, it features a lock that can be activated by rotating a small wheel around the release pin which prevents any rotation of the filter holder.
The V7 kit also includes a push-on lens cap that will protect the CPL while still connected to a lens and a padded holder pouch for safe storage and transport.
The NiSi V7 Filter Holder Kit retails for $369 and is available for pre-order from the NiSi Australia website now.
