DJI Phantom 3 Standard Filter 3-Pack
The PolarPro DJI Phantom 3 Standard Filter Pack includes the necessary filters to maximize the quality of your aerial imagery. High definition glass allows you to capture razor sharp imagery, and the filters are light enough to smoothly operate your gimbal, with each filter weighing a mere 7.64g (CP) and 7.06g (ND's). If you are trying to capture high quality Phantom 3 video, this filter pack is for you.
Circular Polarizer Filter (CP): The circular polarizing filter helps enhance aerial videos by reducing the amount of light reflecting off the ground, sky, or water. Removing this glare allows the camera to capture beautifully saturated colors and improves contrast.
2-Stop Neutral Density (ND4): This 2-stop neutral density is perfect for lowering shutter speed to 1/60th on cloudy to partly cloudy days. This filter helps reduce highlights as well as reduces lens flare when shooting into the sun.
3-Stop Neutral Density (ND8): The 3-stop ND is best used on partly cloudy to mildly sunny days. This filter helps prevent lens flare and reduces most rolling shutter. This filter also slows the shutter speed enough to blur the propellers when they are in the frame.
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.
