The PolarPro VIVID Collection Filter 3-Pack is part of a new Cinema Series™ line, using the highest-grade glass and coatings on the filter market. The Cinema Series™ is for pilots who demand the absolute best.
Unlike the standard 3-pack, all 3 filters are combined ND/PL filters. As it's not possible to stack multiple filters on a Phantom lens, this is the only way to achieve both polarisation and ND effect at the same time.
The VIVID Collection for the DJI Phantom 4/3 contains rotatable ND4/PL, ND8/PL, and ND16/PL filters for reducing the cameras shutter speed, removing glare, and increasing color saturation.
Each filter is precisely manufactured with PolarPro’s AirFrame™ design making each filter ultra-light for smooth gimbal operation.
The Cinema Series™ VIVID Collection for the Phantom 4 and 3 comes with a lifetime warranty, guaranteeing it will last longer than your drone.
These filters will not Phantom 4 Pro or Phantom 3 Standard.
Cinema Series™ Glass: Pristine optical glass with high light transmission and a lower refractive index.
Airframe™ Construction: The ultra-light construction utilizes a precision threaded aircraft aluminum frame for smooth gimbal operation. The Cinema Series has a special annodised gold colour frame.
ND4/PL Filter (5.67g): This filter reduces the cameras shutter speed by 2 f-stops and polarises light. It's most useful when filming at dusk or dawn, or on cloudy days.
ND8/PL Filter (5.6g): The ND8/PL will reduce the cameras shutter speed by 3 f-stops which makes it perfect for partly cloudy days. The build in polariser reduces glare and increases color saturation.
ND16/PL Filter (5.6g): The go-to filter when it's bright and sunny outside. It reduces the shutter speed by 4 stops and polarises the scene for capturing vivid colors on bright days.
Note that if you need a Polariser or ND on its own, you will still need to purchase the standard 3-Pack filters.
Working out when to use each filter, the goal is to reduce the camera’s shutter speed to give videos a smooth cinematic look, rather than a choppy high speed look.
A popular ND tip is to aim for your shutter speed to be double the frame rate. So if you're 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 a 1/60th shutter speed. The darker the ND, the slower the shutter speed.
