Ever heard of NiSi? In-Depth Video Testing

When it comes to filters everyone is familiar with brands such as Tiffen and Schneider, but there are a lot of other companies out there flying under the radar. One of them is NiSi, who have been making filters for around 10 years. Like me you may have never heard of them before, but don’t be surprised if you start seeing a lot more people using their products. Nisi is a Chinese company but the glass they use to make their filters is sourced from AGC in Japan and Schott in Germany. Both these companies have a reputation for making world class, high quality optical glass.I also tested out one of the NiSi graduated ND filters and found the quality...

NiSi, Coklin & LEE Filter Review and Comparison

“What filters do you use?” – It’s the question that most landscape photographers ask just after they’ve probed into what camera you’re using. And in the same way as the ongoing “Nikon vs Canon war” (which is amusing to watch in itself!) the so-called brand allegiance is fun to explore when you start asking exactly why a photographer has chosen a particular system . For landscapes, filters can quickly become an essential part of your kit list – and they can be as big an investment for a full set as a very good lens in itself. Rightly so, I must add, as what’s the point in paying £5,000 for a lens to put a piece of cheap plastic in front of...
