Hey all,

Since buying and flying my Phantom 4 Pro, I didn't use any filters. Now I was thinking about buying some of the PolarPro series, these: https://www.polarprofilters.com/ ... phantom4pro-filters

I want to use them for filming and photo. What are your experiences with these filters and are they worth buying?

Thanks in advance!

Definitely the Polar Pro filters - they're by far the best I've seen.

Plus if you buy the pack you can get multiple filters to make sure you've got the right filter for the right shot.

N16 filters will be very helpful in sunlight. You will get more out of your camera with these filters.

I bought the same set of filters from a different company for about $40 and they seem to work wonders for me.  Its possible there is a better quality to these filters, but I can say that if you don't want to spend that much, there are cheaper brands out there.

Again, thanks all for the responses. Already tried them and they work great. Only thing is they wont fit the original DJI gimbal lock, so I have to change the original UV filter every time. Will fix that later :-)

DJI ND8 filter fitted all the time - Fits in gimbal clamp and works just as good as most.

Hi sunfield,

Glad to hear you're enjoying the filters so far!  We know the stock DJI lock won't work with our filters installed, so we offer our own https://www.polarprofilters.com/collections/dji-phantom-4-pro/products/phantom-4-pro-gimbal-lock that is compatible whether our filters are mounted to the drone or not.  It sounded like you may not have come across that before so I wanted to mention it.  If you have any questions about that or the filters at any point, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at support@polarpro.com.
