Key Features
  • For Night Scenes and Astrophotography
  • Blocks Yellow Light Pollution at Night
  • Blocks Sodium-Vapor, Mercury-Vapor Light
  • Blocks Light from Low CRI LED's
The 150 x 150mm Natural Night Light Pollution Filter from NiSi is an essential tool for night scenes and astrophotography. Light pollution occurs in areas of the night sky that are above or near concentrated and intense sources of artificial light such as cities. This filter corrects color distortion caused by undesirable wavelengths of light that pollute the night sky caused by mercury vapor, sodium, low CRI streetlights, and more. The glow from these sources can keep a camera from rendering the sky properly and impact your astrophotography and night images. Natural Night Filters block the most common wavelengths of light pollution by blocking the yellow light frequencies to render neutral, natural tones.

It is a great product for photo and video, I used mostly for my filmmaking. Lately I did notice I have noticed a scratch on the Nisi filter which was mounted on the matte box, I figure my lens was touching the filter. Beware! #Vancouverfilmmaker

Works as Advertised

I purchased this filter for nightscape astrophotography to reduce the effects of light pollution and to produce a more natural sky color. I use it on a Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 lens. The filter does just what it's supposed to do. The sample images here are right out of the camera, with the identical exposure, one taken with the NiSi 150x150 Natural-Night Filter and one without, from a location about an hour west of Washington, D.C.

Works reasonably well

No light pollution known to me is perfect, and this one is no exception. It however works reasonably well with my Nikon 14-24mm f2.8 lens, eliminating harsh yellow lights that would otherwise mar my backyard night photos.

VERY EASY to break. The bag is completely not protective

I received mine on Aug. 1st and it was broken during my first trip even before a trial shoot. This $265 filter ONLY come with a soft bag and no hard case to protect it. Also this is a 2mm thick glass filter which makes it very fragile. You need an additional hard box/case to keep it from impacts, squeezes and bending, which happens in your bag.

The NiSi 150 x 150mm Natural-Night Filter is designed to reduce the appearance of light pollution in images or video that include the night sky and illumination from artificial light sources, is not designed to be used for natural light unless the natural light is jammed with a lot of artificial light sources.
