The long awaited Nisi V6 Holder is here! I got to try it out recently so thought I would tell you how it went.
Firstly... How cool is this name! V6 sounds like a real performer... and it is!
Here you go! The Nisi V6 Holder We've been waiting for this one for awhile.
I've been using it for a few weeks now and I am very happy to say this is everything they said it would be.
A rare moment of contemplation waiting for the harsh light to disappear.
I first used the V6 over the course of a few days in one of my favourite locations on the Coromandel NZ. We were expecting horrendous weather conditions, including a cyclone which didn't eventuate (kind of a shame as was hoping for lightening!) but what we got instead was calm conditions and skies that lit up like xmas trees.
The very best thing about this new design in my opinion is the screw lock system. It fixes the position of the filters and provides that security of knowing the holder is extra stable on the front of your lens. Have you noticed that you always drop something breakable when there's rocks under your tripod and never grass?
I have never actually dropped my holder when putting it on or taking it off but I have had many near misses and I've seen plenty of others do it. It's that ultra sickening feeling of waiting for the sound of a smashed filter as it hits the ground and not a thing can be done about it.
There shouldn't be any of this anymore with this new system. Ultra stable!
