Digital Camera World Verdict

Those looking for a square filter system, the NiSi V7 100mm is a well-thought-out design with top-quality glass. While this base kit with polarizer isn’t bad value for money, you’ll get more bang for your buck investing in one of NiSi's bundled kits that come with additional square filters.

NiSi has established itself as one of the most-trusted brands in filter systems, with many top-name pros swearing by them – thanks to their True Color optical glass, which promises cast-free images through even the highest-density filters. The backbone of the system is the holder-and-polarizer combo, which has recently been updated to this V7 incarnation. 

The NiSi V7 with True Color NC CPL kit includes a three-slot holder for square filters with a recess into which fits an 82mm adaptor ring. It’s secured by pulling out a retaining clip, which is then locked in place with a twist – this is one of the chief design changes over the previous V6 holder, which has a separate retaining clip and locking clamp. This design makes it a little easier to remove and reattach the holder from the 82mm ring.
