I cancelled my order with polar pro and I got them from SRP.
Customer service is absolutely non existent at polar pro, my "shipped a week ago" order is still in the warehouse.
Thanks salota8550   for the info

looks nice, did you try them?

Full disclosure - I'm running www.PhantomFilters.com so yes, I've tried them

They work fine and do the job. I've yet to compare with the more expensive solutions. I think it is a good starting point for using ND-filters with the P3. They weigh practically nothing so they don't cause any weight/gimbal-balance problems.

I can surely imagine it - I fly in such conditions all the time myself!   I love the Golden Hour.

Some time next week I am bringing out an ND16 (1.2) that is very dark (likely too dark for that sunrise lighting but might be good for middle of the day bright sunlight).

If you film straight at the sun like that, there will be zebra-stribes (overexposure) and that is okay. You would have to make the rest of the image completely dark to avoid zebras/overexposure right in the sun. We should not try to use our P3s to film sun-spots or solar-eclipses ;)  What you should do in any case if shooting stills right at the sun is, to shoot brackets and make a HDR-photo out of the frames. I usually shoot all my stills in brackets (mostly 5 brackets) to get maximum quality and freedom to control the lighting in my photo-software (I use Lightroom).

The ND-filters are light and thin enough that you can stack them if you need an extra strong effect. If you already got the Snakeriver, my ND-filters should work with them - were you just put the PhantomFilters ND-filter in side the Snakeriver filter - the same way you would otherwise install them in the standard UV-filter that is attached to the P3 when we get it. You can see installation-photos on the website.

I do like the way these fit inside the lens cover so the added weight is minimal.  However, my concern with gel filters is cleaning them without leaving any scratches and the way they tend to curl.  Do these filters come in any kind of storage container to keep them flat?  (or are they a thicker material that doesn't curl?)

I got your filters on Saturday and shots some great footage on Sunday. I used the ND 6 and it worked great! It was a bright day and it allowed me to get my frame rates down where they needed to be.

IT is a bitch to get the lens cover off the first time. Thanks for providing an affordable solution!!!

If you make a finger-print on them it is easy enough to clean them gently with a soft cloth.

I deliver them in flat storage pouches that keep them flat and protected.

When installed behind the UV-filter (the front part of the DJI camera that unscrews) they fit nicely between the lens and the UV-filter.

Do you have ND100 filters.

The strongest I currently have is ND16. Which is quite dark - it only lets about 6% of the light thru.

If needed, you can stack the ND-filters for a stronger effect.

Here are some notes that might help people that want to use ND (Neutral Density) filters.

If you are serious about getting the best video quality from your DJI Phantom 3 then you want to shoot with the best settings. The most professional look is achieved by shooting at a shutter speed that is DOUBLE what the frame rate is.

For example:
1080P/60  = 1/120 second
4k/30 = 1/60 second

Typical settings: please preview with the DJI app and turn off auto-exposure
Bright overcast daylight - 1080P/60 = 3-stop reduction
Bright daylight - 1080P/60 = 4-stop reduction

Bright overcast daylight - 4K/30 = 4-stop reduction
Bright daylight - 4k/30 = 5-stop reduction

Stackable design:
To get 4-stops of reduction simply add the 3-stop filter and a 1-stop filter.

Hi! Do you have a polarised filter for the PH3 P? Is it coming soon? That would be really nice!

Thanks

PS: I'm a future buyer for sure (but I need the polarised filter!)

Yes, absolutely. I combine two filters all the time, usually the Polarizer-filter + ND8 in sunny conditions.

A few days ago on a sunny afternoon, I was shooting 4K 30 fps video and used the POL-filter + the ND8 and in auto the camera would set itself to the optimal 60 shutter speed, 0EV, ISO100.

So I highly recommend doing exactly that. I personally like the POL-filter a lot and combining it with an ND to control the shutter speed is a great idea.

Here is a photo I too with the PhantomFilters.com POL-filter a nice morning at 5.30am:
