NiSi F3 is a range of five manual lenses intended for filming. Each glass is intended for professional cameras and film cameras.

Until now, NiSi has mainly created photographic filters. Now, however, the manufacturer has decided to enter the market of facilities. The NiSi F3 series are five film lenses . Each of them is equipped with a liquid T-stop with 12 leaves and a manual focus ring. The producer assures that the glass will give a picture characteristic of retro cinema (he describes it as "retro cinema style"). In addition, the models are to be characterized by very low dispersion. Lenses are designed for full-die matrices. They are therefore adapted to work with professional Super 35 cameras, such as the Canon EOS C700. Lenses are made with Sony E, Canon EF and PL fastening systems . It will be possible to use them also in cameras, including full-frame Sony A7 series models. The manufacturer decided to create five glasses that cover a wide range of focal lengths . For that everyone can be proud of bright light. The widest one is NiSi F3 25 mm T2.1, providing a wide-angle image. We also have a focal length very popular with the filmmakers – NiSi F3 35 mm T2.0. There was also a classic, fifty "portrait", meaning NiSi F3 50 mm T2.0. There is also NiSi F3 75 mm T2.0, which gives us the value of 50 mm lenses in the APS-C matrix. The longest model is NiSi F3 100 mm T2.0, which can play the role of a telephoto lens. The combination of a long focal length and a wide aperture will ensure a nice blur of the image. nisi-f3-2
