Explorer Collection 100x150mm Soft Grad Neutral Density Filter – GND8 - 3 Stop
The NiSi Explorer Collection 100x150mm Nano IR Soft Graduated Neutral Density Filter – GND8 (0.9) – 3 Stop is part of our Explorer Series for made for adventure. The filters feature a unique glass hardening process that makes them double the strength of a typical glass filter. The Explorer series are much less prone to accidental breakage and is perfect for active photographers.
The NiSi Explorer Collection 100x150mm Nano IR Soft Graduated Neutral Density Filter – GND8 (0.9) – 3 Stop is a rectangular filter that helps darken specific image areas, such as bright skies, while allowing for a regular, unaffected exposure in the other regions of the picture. The filter is densest at the edge and tapers to clear by the middle, with a soft-edged transition line between the wide and clear areas. A neutral density filter with a soft-edged line change is beneficial for images that feature trees, buildings, mountains and other elements that protrude into the skyline.
NiSi GND filters do not affect the image's colouration, offer a true-to-life colour and are made from high-quality optical glass (not resin) with nano coating to prevent losing any single bit of detail. By using a neutral density filter, the camera is vulnerable to infrared light, which will cast the unwanted red colour to the photos when shooting at a small aperture. NiSi GND filters have an infrared protection coating layer to eliminate the infrared light through the lens to bring back the natural true-to-life colour.
The NiSi Explorer Collection is made from B270 tempered glass. It features the same Nano coating process as our optical glass filters. This filter is tempered and hardened, making it much less prone to accidental damage, but this does not mean it is unbreakable. After a long period, the hardening may decline.
The NiSi 100mm filter system is great for cameras with lenses with a standard filter thread from 49 mm to 95mm.
