    Bad news for your gimbal

    Posted
    Joewinning

    I was super excited about these filters when I found out about them. Upon purchase I discovered that polar pro had a first attempt at making filters for the mavic pro and it was a fail because the lens would hit the edges of the gimbal upon starting up the drone and the gimbal calibrating. This second batch unfortunately needs work also. The lens itself is a great filter. It blocks the sun out and helps keep the pictures color beaitulf. Why the 3 instead of 4 because the filters are soo hard to remove from the gimbal after being installed that it literally feels like you're ripping the gimbal right off along with it. They will eventually cause damage to your gimbal and that can be costly. After this all I ended up buying the dji ones instead we will see how it goes with those.

    Versatile filter pack

    The filters work as advertised — I bought them impulsively in the store but wish I'd held out for another pack. This pack offers a circular polarizer and three- and four-stop neutral density filters that are great for slowing down shutter speed on and rejecting some perpendicular reflections from the Mavic's camera all with little to no degradation of image quality. They just can't be used at the same time. Users can't stack these filters, meaning they have to decide between ND or CPL. Polarpro does make combination CPL/ND filters that provide some combined effect — their Cinema Series filters — but those weren't available at the store where I made the purchase. Additionally, because there is no way to adjust the filter mid-flight, using the CPL effectively means landing the drone, planning a shot, realigning the filter to reject glare in the planned shot and executing the shot with respect to filter alignment. Users who shoot run-and-gun footage will get little to no use out of the CPL.

    These will cause trouble for your gimball...

    First, I was one of the first people to order this item, so there was no reviews for me to base off of. The build quality for these is nice. The case and the protector is great.....BUT they will jam your gimball. When the Mavic is initally turned on, it adjusts by flipping forward and back and into the corners. Unfortunately. the filter hits the edges of the gimbal and causes the lens to get stuck. which then results in you getting an error on your Mavic screen related to gimball stabilization. I will be returning these and getting the official DJI ones since they seem to clip on on stead of covering the entire lens. Oh yeah these are like a cap on the lens. versus the DJI ones that clip on.

    Still fails gimbal calibration

    I specifically asked PolarPro if their filters at Best Buy were of the revised batch, and they assured me they were. However, one of the three filters (for me it was ND8) will fail gimbal calibration, and get stuck against the motor. The other two work fine, so this means that apparently PolarPro still is having tolerance issues in production. Will likely return as I am only getting told by Polar Pro to make sure it is pressed on enough (which it definitely is...and how do they explain the fact that two of the filters work fine?) My recommendation is to wait for the official DJI filters as you know they will work with the Mavic Pro.

    I have a DJI Mavic Pro, and I wanted to make sure the video I take with it is going to be good. The sun can cause the video to look washed out so I checked out these filters and can't tell you how much of a difference I noticed right off the bat. The video and photos I took without the filters on could not be used because of how bright it was that day. The photo in I have here is with one of the filters on the drone and as you can see it's like putting sun glasses on your drone.

    Dont understand why the plain CP lens is not included on the Cinema Kit where the other CP lenses are available, maybe the reason is $$$, but spend $150 for this Kit is, to my parameters, too much, $80 is already too much for one lens. For my purpose the Plain CP lens will be use 90% of the time. Now that the bad news was told, the lens is exactly what you are looking for getting the enhancement you are looking for, Im talking about the plain CP lens, nothing to say about the neutral 8 and 16, although since the Mavic have a fixed aperture, they ate the only way to reach the blurry efect on water, etc Bottom line, I like it

    polarpro - Circular Polarizer and Neutral Density Lens Filters for DJI Mavic Pro are a must. I Don't fly without them. They make your footage crisp and rich with color. They just snap on. If you film anything over or around water or really anything with reflections the circlar polarizer is for you. A super sunny day, then the nd filters are what you use. This set has both the ND filters (like little sun glasses for your drone) and a Circular Polarizer for your DJI Mavic Pro drone.

    Read a bunch of reviews before purchasing this and some people kept complaining that it's easy to break the gimble installing and removing the filters. Honestly I haven't had this problem and I don't really think there's any risk of damage unless you are being careless. Keep the gimble guard while attaching and removing the filters and you should be fine. They are great for keeping your shutter under control under bright conditions. Really good accessory and a must have in every video makers arsenal.

    Purchased these filters in store on 2/19. They work perfectly. Yes, they are a tight fit but as long as you use a little bit of care and follow the instructions, they are no problem to install and remove. It helps to have the gimbal clamp in place while doing this, as it provides a bit more support. They also pass through gimbal initilization with no problems. I have tested all 3 filters through startup of the Mavic and encountered no issues.

    not good as they don't fit the drone and i bought both the mavic and the filters at the same time. Unfortunately, by the time i tried them it was exactly 14 days and that's best buys return max. very dissapointed that best buy recommended them as they are so difficult to slide on that it feels like you break them and then Mavic won't take off because they interfere with the camera movement. Called DJI and they told me if i use them and i break the motors that the warranty is voided.

    This is a good starter pack for the Mavic Pro camera/lens. If you want to get further into ND, which I did, I would look at the ND set that has ND 4, ND 8, and ND 16 for different lighting conditions. For general use, this will work. If you're new to photography/film and unfamiliar with how these filters work, I would do some research into each type of filter to see if it meets your needs and proper usage.

    Excellent ND Filters

    The PolarPro ND Filters for the Mavic Pro are a great tool to have when taking photos or video. I took pictures without the filter and then with the ND8 filter, the photos with the ND8 filter turned out better. The photos had better color and reduced glare from anything reflecting light. These filters do allow for gimbal calibration on startup. I purchased two sets from the local BestBuy and the gimbal calibrated normally when the filters were applied from either set.

    I needed a ND filter for my DJI mavic pro for the trip. I searched around and found this PolarPro filters. I saw some reviews of the earlier generations which fails the gimbal test at the boot up of the drone but read some reviews that later generation will work flawlessly. I took a chance and bought them. Now, I love it. My mavic pro does not have any issues with them on. Must buy item for Mavic Pro!

    Polar Pro has some good stuff. These are great for intermediate flyers/videographers who want cinematic video. There are some better, more expensive filters out there, but these do the trick for me. They're well built and slide right on to the Mavic camera (they can be tight to take off, but you want that so it doesn't fall off during flight). These filters even come in a nice case. I'm pleased with my purchase.

    I had polar pros filter with my phantom 3 & 4 drones and wanted to get this one for my Mavic. First impression the quality of the filters were good. Filters mounts over the camera easily and securely. However when you turn on the drone and first initiate. The filter sticks out and can't clear the gimbal. In turn it prompts you that gimbal is overheating cause it jams. I returned the product because I can't use it.

    I haven't used the lens to capture photos yet. But I was able to attach/detach the lenses to the gimble without an issue. Just followed the provided instructions. Applied very little pressure. Also, my Mavic completed the calibration process without an issue. Can't wait to compare my aerial photos!

    Good Filter(s), Hard to Remove

    These filters sit perfectly on the DJI Mavic. They work exactly as expected in stopping down excessive light. However, removing them can be a bit difficult. The Mavic gimbal does not make it easy as you almost need to have long enough nails to pry the filter(s) off. Otherwise, the Mavic had no issue calibrating and using the filter. Good for the price point.

    Perfect for Mavic Pro

    These filters are a perfect fit, and way better then DJI filters. They fit nicely and securely. Just make sure that filter slides al the way to the end over the camera, otherwise camera will fail the gimbal calibration. No color cast or sharpness issues, and actually a must-have for the Mavic Pro since it can't control the aperture by itself unlike the Phantom Pro.

    These ND filters do a great job of dropping the overall brightness of your images and eliminating glare and flare. Everyone needs a set of these for your Mavic. Polarizer filters help cut through glare and reflections from the sun. The ND aspects allows you to shoot with an optimal Frame Rate even in bright conditions.

    I bought this 3 pack of filters for my mavic to help with shooting video on the more bright sunny days. They did an amazing job! I ended up giving them away to an antipoaching team in Zimbabwe who also use the mavic to track poachers and wildlife. They too found the filters very helpful while trying to scout on sunny days. Like sunglasses for your drone!
