NiSi Black Mist filters reduce the contrast that can lead to excessive sharpness with modern cinema, DSLR, and mirrorless camera lenses. Numerous strategies have been developed to soften images and diffuse light in order to create this special “atmosphere” by softening excessive sharpness and contrasts. The ideal tool for this is the new NiSi filters.
The new NiSi filters reduced the highlights, lower the contrast in the picture and soften wrinkles and blemishes in portraits. They created a soft, pastel-like drawing in the photos and ensure that there is little loss of detail in the entire image compared to traditional diffusion filters (soft focus).
The NiSi Black Mist filters are made of very high-quality optical glass and are provided with a special layer with black dots, which at full image sharpness soften the contrast and bring a softer modulation to the recordings. Thanks to a special surface treatment, the filters achieve natural colors without color casts, which saves time in post-processing.
