    You can also explain the flare off these filters becomes a high light, and double your day rate..

But, who knows whether they are a good choice for the FS7, as I said earlier, what works with one combination of camera and lens, might not work with another.

    Yes I think he chose that camera as "its about as bad as it gets" and so anything else must be better .. sort of plan..

    Hey Ben, I am looking at either the Nisi or Firecrest now and it seems like you you two in combination, correct? Do you have a preference between the two? When looking at a Nisi kits it appears that they are IR ND filters - does that matter either way with FS7? I apologize for what may be stupid questions; I am just beginning to start using external filters and want to start a solid kit.

    Not really using them in combination but rather I will use either depending on if it is a mattebox job or a go super light job.


    Right now the names of all these things are completely silly and what was an IRND 3 years ago is not what is being called an IRND now. It seems to be a shorthand now for 'no strong colour cast'.

    Nisi are simply cheaper for 4x5.65". I'd be using the RHOdiums or similar if I could justify the outlay. Firecrests in this size are bonded and so will last longer than the Nisis but the Nisis are a genuine solid choice being used by a ton of people who can afford more.

    Screw-in Firecrests seem to constantly be on sale on Amazon and i built an 82mm kit very inexpensively.

    OK great. I always appreciate actual firsthand experience when I'm comparing "unknowns" - sometimes the specs don't tell the whole story. Thank you.

    These are pretty darn nice, and I have been Jonesing for a set.

    I ordered a couple more low cost Skier filters to give me a .3 .6 .9 1.2 set in 4 x 5.65. To date I have been pleased with the .6 and .9 I have been using.

    I'll let you know how well the .3 and 1.2 match once they arrive.
