The NiSi Cinema Yellow Light Blocker (Natural Night) is designed to reduce the appearance of light pollution in video or images that include the night sky and illumination from artificial light sources.  Light pollution occurs in areas of the night sky that are above or near concentrated and intense sources of artificial light such as cities. These light sources can include exterior and interior lamps for commercial or residential buildings, brightly lit advertisements as well as sports and entertainment venues. Additionally, artificial lights clustered together can become difficult to discern individually. Light pollution from these “cluttered” sources can become a source of distraction within an image and can resemble overexposed areas of glare.

When used, the NiSi Cinema Yellow Light Blocker (Natural Night) can improve the results of nighttime images by blocking the yellow light from sodium-vapor lamps, mercury-vapor lamps, or low Color Rendering Index LED’s, conventional light sources within urban areas. By preventing the dominant wavelengths of light associated with the color of those lamps from being recorded, the visibility of astronomical objects is increased, and where they appear, artificial light sources are more clearly defined with less glare and improved contrast.

This filter is compatible with filter holders or matte boxes that can accommodate 4mm-thick rectangular filters and are constructed from optical glass for clarity as well as color fidelity. Each glass surface includes one layer of nano-coating. The nano-coating associated with this filter results in an improved beading effect when in contact with water or oil for higher cleaning efficiency.

A leatherette pouch is included with this filter for storage and transport.

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.

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 Stellenbosch 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.
