NiSi has just announced a new two-slots, rotatable filter holder for DSLR and mirrorless cameras: the NiSi Switch. The NiSi Switch can take up to two 100mm filters and allows you to rotate each filter independently, or together. Let’s take a closer look at it.
NiSi Switch Features
If you are a still photographer or a filmmaker who is looking for an alternative to traditional matte boxes (without the need to block light), the NiSi Switch can be a new solution for you. The Switch is a filter holder that accepts up to two 100mm filters, plus one 82mm circular ND filter in the primary adapter.
The main benefit of this system is that you can rotate both filter trays at the same time, or rotate them independently one from another. This feature is especially useful if you work with graduated ND filters so that you can place each filter at the desired angle.
Also, there is a dedicated locking knob on each filter tray, so you can lock it where you want. The Switch is made out of metal, and according to NiSi, there is no vignetting at 16mm on full-frame cameras.
Pricing and Availability
The NiSi Switch works with the 82mm main adapter which is included with the NiSi V6/V5Pro/V5 kits. If you already have one of these kits, you can order the Switch as an additional filter holder for your package. The NiSi Switch is available now and retails for $ 188,00. We will update the article with buy links when we get them.
