NiSi Launches the V7 100mm Filter Holder System

NiSi announced the V7 100mm Filter Holder Kit, which includes a True Color NC Circular Polarizer. According to NiSi, the system is one of the most advanced ever developed.

NiSi claims that the V7 can be used with up to three 100mm-wide, 2mm thick filters. It also includes a True Color Circular Polarizer filter. This filter is claimed to have no vignetting at 16mm for full-frame cameras. To minimize reflections, the holder is made from “aviation-grade” aluminum. It has single element processing by a CNC machine.

NiSi describes the V7 as having a unique rotating wheel design that allows the CPL filter, which can be rotated separately with filters still in place via the cog at the back of filter holder, to be rotated without removing them.

NiSi claims that the CPL prevents yellow casts from being introduced by most CPLs. It also features Pro Nano Coating, the company’s proprietary coating that reduces unwanted reflections. Additionally, it provides a waterproof, oil-resistant layer that aids in cleaning fingerprints, dust and water stains.

NiSi states that the new Point to Point CPL Design makes it easier to install the CPL in the main 82mm adapter. You can attach the CPL by simply aligning the white marks on the CPL with the white mark on your main adapter. Then twist the handle to release the CPL.

To avoid contact with the surface, the filter holder has a clip system that grips only the edges of the filter. NiSi claims that this clip system makes it easy to insert filters and prevents contact with the primary surface. This is especially important for graduated filters. They can be adjusted to suit changing lighting conditions and creative needs by being able to slide up or down within the slot.

The V7 kit includes the 100mm filter holder and the True Color CPL. There are also four adapter rings that can be used with wide-angle lenses (67mm 72mm, 77mm and 82mm), as well as a lens cap and storage pouch. You can order the system directly from NiSi for $249
