The NiSi 100mm V7 Night Photography Kit is designed for night photography and offers our popular Natural Night Filter, the new Star Soft Filter plus the NiSi V7 100mm Holder. The kit includes the most popular adaptor rings (67mm, 72mm, 77mm and 82mm) with others sold separately. The NiSi 100mm V7 Night Photography Kit represents a great saving compared to buying all the included items separately.
What’s included in the kit?
V7 100mm Holder
The NiSi V7 100mm Filter Holder Kit with True Color NC CPL and Lens Cap is the most advanced 100mm filter holder we have ever created, with a refined design based on feedback from photographers. The V7 allows for the easy use of up to three 100mm wide, 2mm thick filters along with an included brand new NiSi True Color Circular Polarizer Filter, and has no vignetting at 16mm with wide-angle lenses on full-frame.
It is made from aviation-grade aluminum with single element processing by CNC machine, and the matte black frosted finish on the surface minimizes 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. The V7 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.
This version of the V7 features the brand new True Color CPL that prevents the yellow cast introduced from most CPLs. The True Color CPL features our proprietary NiSi Pro Nano Coating helping to reduce unwanted reflections and provides a waterproof and oil-resistant layer to assist in the cleaning of unwanted fingerprints, dust, and water stains.
Our 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, you can easily secure the CPL in place, and remove it with little effort.
Our unique clip system is designed to grip only along the edges of the filter avoiding contact with the surface of the filter. Filters are easy to insert, and contact with a filter’s main surfaces are avoided, particularly when using graduated filters, whose effect can be adjusted to better suit changing lighting conditions or creative demands by sliding them up or down within a filter slot.
Use of the NiSi V7 100mm Filter Holder can be easily accomplished by first screwing the included 82mm adapter ring onto a lens with 82mm front filter threads. Step-up rings are included to allow the adapter ring to be used with lenses that have 67mm, 72mm, or 77mm front filter threads, with additional step-up rings available separately for lenses with 49mm, 52mm, 55mm, 58mm, or 62mm front filter threads. 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.
Adapter rings for lenses with 86mm or 95mm front filter threads are also separately available. The combination of either of those adapter rings with the filter holder cannot accommodate a NiSi 86mm circular polarizer filter; however, a polarization effect can instead be obtained by placing a separately available, 100mm wide, 2mm thick polarizer filter between one pair of the filter holder’s slots.
The V7 kit 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 Natural Night Filter is our first filter exclusive for night photography. Between mercury vapor, sodium, Low CRI streetlights, there are many undesirable wavelengths of light that pollute the night sky. The glow from these can keep your camera from seeing the sky properly and effect your night images. Because of this, NiSi has created the Natural Night Filter to block the most common wavelengths of light pollution.
The NiSi 100x150mm Star Soft Astrophotography Filter is a filter for astrophotography designed to make stars appear bigger and to make constellations stand out. The brighter the star the bigger it will appear. Make the constellations and stars sparkle in your night sky images.
The Star Soft Astrophotography Filter is designed just like a GND filter with the effects full strength on the top 100mm of the filter, while the bottom 50mm is clear with no effect. This will allow placement so the effect can enhance the stars without affecting the foreground. Some photographers tell us they love the effect also on the foreground so the filter can be pushed all the way down in the filter holder to have the effect over the entire scene.
The Star Soft Astrophotography Filter has no loss in light and offers a neutral tone with no added color cast. The filter is compatible with our V6 100mm holders and compatible holder that supports 100mm wide filters at 2mm thickness.
100mm Caddy Filter Pouch
The NiSi Caddy 100mm Filter Pouch for 9 Filters is designed for the NiSi 100mm system filters and will hold 4 x 100x100mm and 5 x 100x150mm. It features an adjustable cross-body sling strap and can be carried as a shoulder bag, messenger bag or waist bag. It can be conveniently mounted on a tripod leg for easy access and use and is designed from a lightweight material that protects your filters from scratches. The pouch can hold up to 9 filters in the combination 4 x 100x100mm and 5 x 100x150mm and features a flip-top design to keep the pouch open when in use.
The NiSi Caddy 100mm Filter Pouch can also hold a NiSi 100mm V7 holder in the first slot of the pouch (reducing the filter slots to 8).
The case is very light coming in at 350g and while still small enough to fit into most camera bags. The physical dimensions are: 19cm x 13.5cm x 8cm.
