Cinema Series™ Glass: PolarPro’s limited filter collection using the highest grade glass and coatings available for pilots who demand the best. Cinema Series glass has a high light transmission and a low refractive index.
Airframe™ Construction: PolarPro’s filter design specifically for aerial filming. Featherlight construction utilizes a precision threaded aircraft aluminum frame for smooth gimbal operation.
ND4/PL Filter (5.67g): The ND4/PL reduces the camera's shutter speed by 2 f-stops and polarizes light. We use this filter most often when filming at dusk or dawn, or on cloudy days.
ND8/PL Filter (5.6g): The ND8/PL will reduce the camera's shutter speed by 3 f-stops and is the perfect filter for partly cloudy days. The polarizing aspect of this filter reduces glare and increases color saturation.
ND16/PL Filter (5.6g): Our go to filter when it is sunny out, the ND16/PL reduces shutter speed by 4 f-stops and polarizes the scene for capturing vivid colors on bright sunny days.
The following guideline is a good starting point for when to use each filter while filming with your Phantom 3, Inspire 1, or Solo. The goal of this chart is to reduce the camera’s shutter speed to 1/60th to give aerial videos a smooth cinematic look, rather than a choppy high shutter speed look. A popular way of filming aerial video is to have your shutter speed at double the frame rate. So, if you are shooting 1080/60, then you want to try to achieve a 1/120th shutter speed. Or, if filming 4K/30 or 24, you will want to be near 1/60th shutter speed.
