Why the NiSi System?
Quality. The NiSi Filter Holder system is the best on the market, and also proved to be the best holder to pair with the 7-14 Adapter. Tests with many other filter holders showed that the Nisi V5 and V6 holders gave the best performance in terms of reduced vignetting. Please see the Details page. Also, there was no need to produce special rails, which would result in reduced performance, and light leaks.
The Nisi System also ships with additional adapter rings which make it an ideal system to use on other Olympus lenses, so one system, unlike others, will suit all lenses. The Nisi Polariser cannon be used with the Olympus 7-14 Pro, although there is a workaround, more information is provided on the Polariser Details Page.

Filters are one of the most important accessories to landscape photographers, for controlling the light in a scene when the sky and ground are out of the Dynamic Range of the camera, and for manipulating the exposure for creating Long Exposures.
Bracketing and blending is one option, however getting it right-in-camera is far more rewarding. Long Exposures are also difficult without using an ND Filter. A number of 150mm Systems are available, including in from NiSi, which negate the point of using a compact system, and become impractical to use on other lenses such as the 12-40 f2.8 or 12-100 f4.
The logical conclusion was to develop a way to use 100mm filters.

Development of the Adapter
The 7-14 Pro Adapter has been carefully modelled by engineers using 3D software and prototyped through various stages using 3D printing technology. It is designed to accept the Nisi V5 / V6 filter holders to benefit from the quality of the Nisi system, and the quality of Nisi glass filters.
Tests with other filter holders showed that vignetting could occur when using two slots at the lens’ widest end, and modified rails with minimal slots could allow light leakage using ND filters and reduce the ability of slots to actually support filters. By producing the adapter to minute tolerances of 0.3mm, to accept one of the best filter holder systems on the market, the photographer has the best of both worlds.
Produced in Germany on commercial 3D printers they are of the highest quality possible. For more information please see the 7-14 Adapter Details section.
