NiSi Expands Selection and Introduces Smartphone Filter System

HOUSTON, Texas (March 27, 2018) - NiSi Filter Systems announces the release of a new selection of variable neutral density (ND) filters as well as the P1 smartphone-mountable system. Both the variable ND filters and the new P1 system mark an ever-expanding selection from NiSi, which is sold exclusively through Ikan International. For mobile landscape and travel photography or vloggers, the new smartphone system offers a creative addition for on-the-go kits.

The variable ND filters include 67mm, 72mm, 77mm, 82mm and 95mm - all with filter density adjustable between 1.5 and 5 stops without the "X" effect of other variable ND filters. Each filter comes in a compact design, making transportation and storage efficient. The nano-coated optical glass protects from water and oil.

The P1 smartphone-mountable system works with most smartphones and includes a circular polarizer and medium graduated filter. The filter mount rotates independently from the phone clip. The filters come 40 mm wide and 1-1.5mm thick. As smartphone cameras become more advanced, the P1 system offers a new level of technology for mobile filmmakers and photographers.

"With all the advancements in phone technology, this system helps bring phone-tography to a more sophisticated level," says Product Manager Jeffrey Lowe Lochmann. "We're excited to bring this product to the US from NiSi, who have even more great products coming this year."

Ikan will showcase the latest innovation from NiSi at the NAB show in Las Vegas, NV from April 9-12, 2018. To test the latest technology, visit booth C10919.
