The NiSi Filters 100mm ND Long Exposure Kit is a new kit from NiSi Filters featuring four 100x100mm IR Neutral Density Filters, ND8 3 Stop and ND64 6 Stop, ND1000 10 Stop and ND32000 15 Stop. �Neutral density (ND) filters uniformly reduce the amount of light entering the lens. �The ND Filter can enable greater motion blurring and image detail by allowing a large aperture and a slow shutter speed. �ND filters are also helpful when the contrast between the highlights and shadows is too high to get a quality exposure. �The ND8 3 Stop is commonly used for waterfalls and capturing water flow at shutter speeds from 0.5 seconds to�2 seconds. �The ND64 6 stops ND filter is generally used during golden hour to create exposures of 1-2 minutes for smooth water or clouds or is also great for capturing dynamic water while retaining some texture�before the golden hour. �The ND1000 10 Stop�is used during the day outside of golden hour as the bright ambient light requires much more �light blocking�. These can prolong exposures for up to 5 minutes during golden hour with the appropriate settings. �A 15 stops filter can be used to achieve very long exposures in the middle of the day and with this filter, exposures upward of 5 minutes can be achieved even during bright sunshine.
The NiSi Filters 100mm ND Long Exposure Kit also includes a NiSi soft filter pouch that holds four 100x100mm filter (or four circular filters up to 95mm), a cleaning cloth and four replacement foam gaskets.
NiSi ND filters do not affect the coloration of the image, offer a true to life color and are made from high-quality optical glass (not resin) with nano coating to prevent losing any single bit of detail. �By using neutral density filter the camera is vulnerable to infrared light which will cast the unwanted red color to the photos when shooting at a small aperture. NiSi ND filters have an infrared protection coating layer to eliminate the infrared light through the lens to bring back the natural true to life color.
