    Not what I had hoped

    I was very excited when I bought this set as I have been in desperate need of filters and they seem to always be out of stock on Dji's website lately. My first experience was good with it, however that changed quickly when I attempted to take a panoramic photo. The gimbal could not move to shoot the Pano shot. I thought (hoped) this was a mistake. Landed, placed the gimbal guard on and then removed the filter, checked everything and carefully placed it back on and sent it back up. Same result. This is a definite deal breaker for me. I use the Pano a lot. Returning today.

    Too fat for this gimble!

    These lens filters are just a bit too fat in some cases for the gimble. Basically on about half of them, the gimble will get stuck as it does its boot up routine to set up the camera. These obviously are not manufactured very precisely, hence the variations in diameter that causes this to happen. Be aware, if you don't catch this, you could burn out the motors on the gimble as it would be the same as forgetting to take the gimble lock mechanism off prior to start up. Too bad.

    Bower Filters do not work on Mavic Pro

    Bought the filters as they were advertised to work on Mavic Pro in September. Since it has been raining and cold, I just got to try these out this weekend; with the filters added, I get an error that the gimbal is stuck (the filter touches the rotating mechanism - AND the filter IS on all the way). I gave them '1 star', because it would not let me rate them as '0 stars', which they deserve. While 'some' have not had a problem, I would not roll the dice.

    These are obviously very specific for the DJI Mavic Pro. There is one small issue, you need to make sure that it doesn't cause the camera to get stuck during startup gimbal calibration. It is just a bit too "fat" on the outside diameter, so it needs a little help when the camera is rotating to the right. It can get caught (just barely on the gimbal arm) - that's why it doesn't quite make it to a five star. Other than that, the various lenses or lens adjustment filters are just perfect.

    A looked at a lot of lenses for my magic pro and these are one of the best I found as far as quality/price. You can spend upwards of 80 to 100 dollars for pretty much the same all around lenses. No need to spend that much on something that doesn’t really vary that much to begin with. They snap on very easy. If I could change one thing it would be that they screwed on as apposed to snapping on. They work great though.

    ND Filters are a must for drone usage. Unfortunately this kit does not include an ND32 filter. As far as what is included, the fit and finish is excellent. The drone camera and gimbal clear eachother with the filter installed. Which is great because you can install and remove the filters with the gimbal protection lock in place.

    Quality doesn't seem to b the best but the price reflects that. You get what you pay for. I am not into pro photography so they meet my needs just fine. Others have complained about the fit in that it interferes with the gimble movement. I haven't experienced this problem myself.

    When I saw these at BestBuy I hadn't read any reviews but I bought them because the kit included 2 more filters than other kits I had seen. The polarizing filter stays on my Mavic all the time because it really improves the video, and the added protection for the camera lens is a must. I am very happy with my purchase.

    There have been some filters put out for the Mavic pro that didn't work right, these are not part of those. They fit great and work amazingly well. The problem I find is the price point, These would fit well in the price point of $39.99 see as to how the competition is out-selling these at a higher price point.

    This is one of those "they fit, they work, what more can I say" sort of reviews. They fit. They work. So, yeah... Five stars :) Oh I will add that they come in a handy velcro roll up carrying case with individual pockets to keep the lenses from scraping against one another

    I'm just a beginner pilot. So for me this was not a great purchase. I really can't tell the difference and I think you need a better camera than is on my mavic pro to get the most out of filters. Then again it may be the filters

    Horrible quality ND filters

    I bought these ND filters to try on my mavic pro. While they don't cause any issues with the gimbal initiation, the quality of the filters are horrible. The film on the ND 4 was only applied to half of the lens and the film itself is high susceptible to scratches.

    So I go my filters and a little skeptical on how they would perform I had nothing to worry about. These things are great and come in handy when shooting and looking for that perfect color grade. Would defenetly recomend

    More options to choose from the 3 given by the other company but Work just the same. These just offer an orange and blue filter. They accent blue skies and sunsets. Still really cool and adds more to your drone photographs.

    Great fit with no worries of coming off in flight & incredible quality (especially at this price). Great looking videos. Carrying case is flimsy but you're buying filters, not the case.....right?

    This is a very nice package. Some of the other filter packages prevent you from carrying out the gimbal check on your drone if the filter is installed during power up. This one does not have that issue.

    This product will not let the gimbal initialize when you start up the drone, and it is not recommended to install the ND filter with the drone on because the install can damage the gimbal ... Do not buy !!!

    I haven't had a chance to use all of the different lenses that comes in this package, but I'm looking forward to it. I noticed that the Bower brand was a little less expensive versus others (so that's a plus).

    Decent filters for the price. Saw these on sale so decided to try them out work well and do not effect gimbal function, would purchase again as I travel alot and do not have to worry about losing expensive filters.
