    Anyone is using NiSi square filter system? Will it fit LEE filters and any vignette if using 16-35mm lens ? The v5 kit set is cheaper as compared to LEE foundation + adaptor + polarizer set but Nisi filters are not cheap too.

    Thanks.

    I would also like to know if anyone has any experience with the NiSi v5, and how it compares to the likes of LEE! Others have said that the filter guide rails are really tight, especially when fitting in LEE filters. Can anyone corroborate this?

    Also, will my 82mm CPL fit nicely as a replacement to the default CPL that comes along with the NiSi v5?

    Please for provide a link if this quesiton has being asked before.

    For those who have used a different brands of CPL filter before.

    If I stand at an angle shooting out through a glass panel with some reflection inside the room, does a better CPL filter able to cut down 100% of the reflection?

    No not 100% but better than not using it.Better cpl is relative it's like you prefer chicken rice or buku teh.Of course the quality of construction...flat parallel glass and precise smooth rotation.

    CPL indoors and out:

    One-one-jack,

    Thanks for the reply as well for the articles.

    I wanted to have a CPL for my Olympus 12~40mm lens to shoot thru' glass panel like the sea world aquarium or outside scenery of a tall building.

    Yesterday while clearing store found that 1 piece attached to my old Nikkor 35~135mm lens. No brand except printed except Japan.

    First thing I did was tested out reducing reflection off shiny surface. Found that it unable to reduce 100% of the reflection. Hence the enquiry for those who have the opportunity to try different brands of CPL on eleminating 100% reflection from the smooth or shiny surface.

    Thank You
    EisMann

    Meaning?
    Is it fake or a different product line?


    Because googling it seems to yield the German ones only
