The NiSi 72mm Nano IR Neutral Density Filter ND32000 (4.5) 15 Stop is specially designed for landscape photographers. This filter is made from high-quality optical glass with nano coating to prevent losing any single bit of detail. Neutral density filters do not affect the colouration of the image and the 4.5 density provides a 15 stop reduction in light from entering the lens.
The ND Filter creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control the depth of field and convey movement in your images. The ND32000 (15 Stop) is widely used to capture extreme long exposure images (usually 3-6 mins in daylight), to create effects like cloud movement or cloud softening.
By using neutral density filters the camera is vulnerable to infrared light which will cast the unwanted red colour to the photos when shooting at a small aperture. The added the infrared protection coating layer to this filter which helps to eliminate the infrared light through the lens to bring back the natural colour.

Creating long exposures during the day using a 15 stop ND filter
Creating super long exposures during the day requires the use of neutral density filters capable of blocking a lot of light. During the brightest parts of the day the sunlight is very intense, with exposure times often around 1/500th secs and faster being required to expose correctly. A NiSi 15 Stop ND filter - also [...]
