NiSi Explorer Filters vs NiSi Optical Glass Filters

Our Explorer filters are twice the strength of our optical glass filters. They're made from B270 tempered glass compared to lens-grade optical glass found in our optical glass filters. Both filters feature the same NiSi Nano Coating. So why are Explorer filters less expensive? B270 glass is a less expensive raw material and we have passed on these savings. Any disadvantages? B270 has slightly lower transmittance and a slight loss in sharpness. Our Explorer filters perform so well the difference is virtually undetectable. Since the Explorer series are much less prone to accidental breakage, they’re perfect for active photographers.


The NiSi Explorer Collection 150x150mm Nano IR Neutral Density filter – ND64 (1.8) – 6 Stop is part of our Explorer Series for made for adventure. The filters feature a special glass hardening process that makes them double the strength of a typical glass filter.  The Explorer series are much less prone to accidental breakage and perfect for active photographers.

Neutral density (ND) filters uniformly reduce the amount of light entering the lens.  ND Filters can enable greater motion blurring and image detail by allowing a large aperture and a slow shutter speed.  ND filters are also helpful when the contrast between the highlights and shadows is too high to get a quality exposure. The ND64 6 stops ND filter is generally used during the golden hour to create exposures of 1-2 minutes for smooth water or clouds.  A 6 Stop is also great for capturing dynamic water while retaining some texture before the golden hour.

NiSi ND filters do not affect the coloration of the image, offer a true to life color, and are made from high-quality optical glass (not resin) with nano coating to prevent losing any single bit of detail.  By using neutral density filter the camera is vulnerable to infrared light which will cast the unwanted red color to the photos when shooting at a small aperture. NiSi ND filters have an infrared protection coating layer to eliminate the infrared light through the lens to bring back the natural true to life color.

The NiSi Explorer Collection is made from B270 tempered glass.  It features the same Nano coating process as our optical glass filters.  This filter is tempered and hardened making it much less prone to accidental damage but this does not mean it is unbreakable.  After a long period of time, the hardening may decline.

This 150x150mm filter is compatible with the NiSi 150mm filter system.
