Need an option for multiple manufacturer, I have filters from PgyTech, Freewell and Polar Pro. I voted for Pgytech since I have 9 of their filters and only 3 from Polar Pro and 1 from Freewell.

You're right, I assumed that most of the users don't own filters from more than 2 manufacturers.
I changed the poll to 5 options.
From the ones you own what are the most used filters? Which brand is the best?
Do you know maybe what is the difference between the PGYTECH HD-PRO filters to PGYTECH PRO filters? They look differently...

I got the PgyTech ND/PL set initially as they were one of the first to ship and I can get it delivered while I was still traveling so I can use them right away. Turns out they are also my favorite as the case is really nice, easy to open even if you have the OP in one hand. the Filters are held in the case magnetically so they are easy to remove and store vs those held in foam cutouts. The filters also have a slotted casing which makes them easy to grip onto and you can attach to and remove from the OP even while filming. They served me well during my trip and I picked up the graduated filters set when they became available.

I got the Freewell Clear Night filter just for night filming. and I just recently got the Polar Pro with the rotating PL just in case I want to do some more professional filming but I need the larger screen on the phone to adjust them properly.

I use the Pgytech ND/PL set on a regular basis during my trip and they worked very well. I like their carrying case better than any of the other and their slotted casing makes it easy to attach them to of remove from the OP even while filming. I preferred the fixed PL since I don't usually attach my phone while filming (I'm just a casual user mostly filming travel and everyday stuff for my own enjoyment).

I don't think PgyTech have 2 different series, they don't make a specific HD Pro set, at least not according to their website. Maybe just some retailer are listing them differently.

I'll add the Neweer option as well and also the Other option.
How is the Neweer set?  I own a lense from them with different filters for my Sony Mirorrles and the quality is very nice.
So what's your opinion about the quality of their Osmo Pocket ND/PL filters?

They seem good
The glass and clarity I have no issues with
The PL ones do not seem to have as good a magnetic strength as the non PL ones also they do not seem to fit as perfect - I have no others to try so have nothing to compare
I am pleased with them - Cost for all of them was only £22 - The case they came in was bulky hence the buisness card case

I bought Polar Pro because I like and trust their glass and they have excellent customer service.
However I'm not a fan of their cases. Far too much wasted space and a pain in the backside to open and close with stupid plastic hinges

Is the freewell clear night filter strictly used for outdoor low light/night conditions with street lights only or can it be used indoors as well?  What are the necessary conditions in order to use this filter?

The Clear Night filter mostly outdoor (have not tried in indoor). The main effect is to reduce glare and reflection of air pollution but it does adds a tiny bit of /purpleish/pinkish tone to the video but it can be corrected in post. Here's a couple of vids that show the difference:

PolarPro, ordered the 6-pack standard series, still waiting for them to arrive. Happy with PolarPro on my Spark so I'm pretty sure I'll be happy with my purchase for the OP.

I got a set of the Polar Pro ND4/PL, ND8/PL and ND16/PL.

I will be heading to Everest Base Camp soon, and would love to do some filming.

Do you think those 3 filters will be enough to capture the outdoors in an environment like EBC? Or do you think i need ND32?

With the sun and Snow. Defiantly need nd32 and nd64
I am having a meet this weekend with a photo show of my travels with friends 30 yrs ago
We walked the Annapurna circuit in Nepal.  35mm camera.  Most of the mountains were blowen out in the photos - If I could go back in time with a camera like the OP and a set of filters...
Photos below all have snow coverd mountains in background

Polarpro is the ONLY brand that has a rubber coating over the magnet stip to avoid scratching the lens. I switched to them as my Skyreat set unfortunately f** up my Osmo Pocket !@$%!

I have DJI's official ND filter set for the Osmo. I bought my Pocket off of the site, so it just made sense to grab those along with it on here. They were also cheaper than PolarPro's for some reason. . .

I played with the DJI filters at my local store. I found them way too awkward. Couldn't get a good grip on them.
