Hello and good day AmyMarieBorg. Thank you for creating this poll and I hope that you will get the best information from our valued DJI members on what filter do they prefer. In addition I would recommend to use the Osmo Pocket ND Filters Set found on our DJI official store. These ND filters are tested to work properly for your DJI Osmo Pocket. I will be posting this link where in you can find then overview and the specifications for the said ND filters. Thank you.

Hi, I've seen those for my Osmo, but I need ND Filters for both my Osmo and my other camera. Does DJI make ND Filters for other cameras and if yes, what is best, Glass or Resin please?

Heard that glass filters are a lot better when it comes to image quality.

Easily debatable topic.  In my opinion resin filters are great to handle in the field and if you accidentally drop them on a hard surface, they do not break like glass filters do.  They don’t shatter under pressure as they have the flexibility to bend.  It seems they attract dust easily.  Biggest drawback is they are quite prone to scratches.  Scratches may harm sharpness.  Scratches also tend to reduce contrast and can introduce artifacts to your images if you are shooting against bright sources of light (resulting in ghosting and flare).

Glass filters are clearly superior in sharpness and are much less prone to scratching.  Again, this is based on my personal use and not some scientific research.

Agree with you, I ended up buying a resin filter for my DSLR and unfortunately, it is not that sharp, apart from that I can also notice some marking around the edges. On the other hand, I'm still a student and glass filters are still a bit too expensive for me. So for now, I'll have to stick with resin. :/

After trying out a resin filter, I'm understanding better the quality.
