Polar Pro Filter 3 Pack for Phantom 3/4
PolarPro 3 Filter Pack for DJI Phantom 3 & 4
PolarPro have manufactured a direct replacement for the stock filter on your Phantom.
Have you noticed that your footage is too bright and there is no colour contrast?
Have you wondered why everyone's images have brilliant blue skies, vibrant green trees or can see through water?
Circular Polarizer Filter (CP): The circular polarizer filter helps enhance aerial videos by reducing the amount of light reflecting off the ground, sky, or water. Removing this reflecting light allows the Phantom 3 to capture beautifully saturated colors and improves contrast.
Neutral Density 4 (ND4): This is the most commonly used of the two ND filters. It is a 2-stop neutral density (ND) filter which is used for filming on mild days, i.e. partly cloudy or during the golden hours. This filter helps reduce highlights as well as reduces lens flare when shooting into the sun.
Neutral Density 8 (ND8): This 3-stop ND should be used on mildly sunny days. This filter helps prevent lens flare, and reduces any most rolling shutter. This filter also slows the shutter speed enough to blur the propellers when they are in frame. This image (link) was taken with the ND8, if i didn't have a filter then you wouldn't be able to see anything.
Removing and Installing:
Using a rubber band around your existing filter element, grip if with your thumb and fore finger, holding the gimbal/camera with your other hand turn anti-clockwise. The filter should come off with a little pressure.
Now to begin with, spin the PolarPro filter anti-clockwise until you feel it clip into the groove. Once you feel this turn it clockwise until it begins to tighten solidly. You are done! Take flight and watch the difference.
