The new NiSi Full-Spectrum Neutral Density Filter range (FS ND) transmits light evenly through the spectrum of ultraviolet, visible light and near-infrared wavelengths. It produces perfect neutral colors and retains fine granular detail without compromising other aspects of optical performance.

Features

  • Full Spectrum Solid Neutral Density Filter Reducing the Amount of Light Entering Lens
  • Allows Shooting at Wider Apertures or Reduced Shutter Speed
  • Pure Neutral Color with Consistent Color Across the Entire FS ND Range. Capture of true-to-life images.
  • Optical glass with precise flat and parallel surfaces that guarantee sharpness.
  • Exceptionally accurate and consistent exposure control.
  • Eliminates IR pollution on any camera.
  • Titanium Coating for long filter life.
  • Hydrophobic and oleophobic coating for easy and fast cleaning.
  • Cutting-edge anti-reflective coating minimizes flare and preserves overall contrast.
  • Optical properties are permanently stable and will not fade over time.

 

Transmission graph 

This graph is showing how much light a series of camera filters let pass through them, which is important because it affects the exposure of your photographs. The term "External Spectral Transmittance on Optical Axis" refers to the measurement of light transmission through the filters at different colors of light, which are represented by wavelengths in nanometers (nm) – from 400 nm (near-ultraviolet) to 900 nm (near-infrared).

The horizontal axis (from left to right) shows the wavelength of light in nanometers. The vertical axis (going from top to bottom) shows the optical attenuation in T-Stops, which is a way to measure the reduction of light. Each line on the graph corresponds to a different filter, with labels like "FSND0.3" or "FSND2.4". These numbers represent the density of the filters; higher numbers mean the filter is denser and allows less light to pass through.

The lines are very flat, which means these filters have a consistent effect on light across different colors. This is good because it ensures the colors in your footage is not distorted by the filter. The lower a line is on the graph, the less light it lets through, so you'd need to adjust your camera settings accordingly to get the correct exposure when using these filters.

More about Full Spectrum

NiSi's FS ND filter is made with environmentally sustainable optical H-K9L crown glass. The construction process involves precision annealing, carefully timed heating and cooling protocols, and prolonged holding times, which all work together to eliminate internal stress within the glass and prevent deformation. Compared to ordinary glass, H-K9L glass offers superior benefits such as high neutral light transmittance, excellent uniformity of physical and chemical properties, and precise optical constants.

The newly developed double-sided nano "Ti" (titanium) attenuation film and antireflection coating minimizes glare and reflection. It also greatly reduces or eliminates the reflection of light back and forth between the lens and adjacent filters.

The filter edge is coated with a special matting imported from Japan. This coating for optical lenses prevents ghosting and various forms of glare.

We have a no-nonsense approach. If a product breaks due to a manufacturer defect, we will replace it without asking any questions. If we have any reason to believe that the product was put through unreasonably heavy usage, we will have to follow the manufacturer's standard warranty procedure. 

Find more info on proper care and use for each brand below. 

NiSi Care & Use

F-stop Care & Use

Leofoto

The manufacturer offers a 10-year limited warranty on all products and we extend that warranty to our customers. Please read the below very carefully, so you understand your position when something breaks or doesn’t work ideally anymore.

It is critical to understand that this warranty only applies to factory faults and not to standard wear and tear. Tripods are subject to a lot of gray areas in this regard as tripods used outdoors, particularly in sand and sea water, are subjected to extreme wear and tear. We will e.g. replace the affected part of your tripod if a carbon tube snaps or cracks without much pressure applied to it or if the apex breaks. We will not replace your tripod or the affected part if e.g. a joint locks up due to sand or salt build up or if a hinge becomes corroded or stiff/floppy and unserviceable due to corrosion or salt build up. 

In sum, if we see that you took good care of your tripod and something went wrong, we will go out of our way to fix or replace it for you. If we see that you dragged it through the mud (literally or metaphorically), then we are unlikely to fix/replace it for you. How you handle your tripod and take care of it, is all the difference between 3- or 20 years of service. 

The best of tripods will not last longer than 2/3 years if used regularly in the sea, INCORRECTLY, and never serviced. Always make sure to extend the lowest leg section first, so you keep the joints out of the water/sand. Always rinse with freshwater after use in the sea, wipe down with a wet cloth, leave extended to dry and ENSURE YOU KEEP THE HEAD AND APEX DRY. If your tripod’s joints start feeling sandy/gritty, open them up, give them a proper clean and lubrication and fine-tune the tension on the joints.

If travelling on dirt roads, ensure that your tripod is in its carry-bag when not in use.

Your tripod will not take care of itself – it is up to you to do so. All our tripods ship with an info-sheet on taking care of your tripod. We also offer a full tripod disassembly and service for R1000, including shipping both ways.

CHOOSING NISI

NiSi Cinema Filters

NiSi’s new range of cinema filters are quickly being accepted by the film industry as a reliable and colour-accurate brand at a more affordable price point.

Their IRND’s, Rotating Polarisers and Mist Filters have been in use on sets across the globe for multiple years now with nothing but positive feedback. Our experience here in SA has been the same, with plenty of sales to production and gear houses and only great feedback.

Availability & delivery times

Demand for cinema filters is extremely sporadic. We typically carry two full sets of IRND’s, two full sets of Black Mist, multiple rotating CPLs and one full set of grads. Unlike the stills filters which sell at a steady pace and makes it easy to manage stock, it is common for our entire shelf of cinema filters to be purchased unexpectedly for a large production or a gear house replenishing their fleet.

For this reason, we often end up with no stock when we are between NiSi orders, which we place roughly every 2 months. If we are out of stock and you need something urgently, please get in touch with us as we offer priority airfreight from China for orders over R25 000.

We offer same day shipping from our office in Kuils River, Cape Town to JHB for orders over R25 000. We offer same day delivery to film locations within a 100km radius of Stellenbosch for orders over R25 000.
