Hey

I'm still wavering between a GP11 and a Osmo Action 3, and one thing I can't find for the Osmo Action 3 are ND Filters.

I know there aren't any in the official store, but are there other companies selling ND Filters for the Osmo Action 3? Preferably in Europe?

Thanks!

Hi, Owlpeach. Thank you for reaching out. You are correct, we currently don't have any ND filter yet for Action 3. I will take it as a suggestion of yours and will forward it to our designated team for attention. All significant suggestions will be implemented after the evaluation of our relevant team. For the latest updates please stay tuned to our DJI official website at ( www.dji.com ). Hopefully, other DJI users can provide some recommendations. Thank you for your valued support.

There's also the Freewell ones (I think they are expensive - depending on your budget), and JSR which you can find on AliExpress.

Ok, scratch all this. Yes, the JSR filters seem to have good BUILD quality, the lenses, box looks nice, but the image quality is HORRENDOUS! DO NOT BUY! They produce a horrible circular white halo in the image, especially if you point the camera towards a bright light source, eg, sun or lightbulb.

They are going back. Well, I've tried it. First set. Got them for 40 bucks, and quality here quality there I'm NOT shelling out 75 bucks + shipping for Freewell or anything in that price range. I will just scratch the motion blur in timelapses and that's it.

Just got my JSR ND-PL filter kit from AliExpress. Feels rugged and good quality. The case is nice, the padding is a soft foam-like material. Got the 4-in-1 package (ND8-PL, ND16-PL, ND32-PL, ND64-PL).

I see it points to single filters only not the kit you show Osmonauta

Generally yes, but I figured I give this kit a try. I don't have the budget for expensive filters. I have also checked out a couple of people before purchase who did reviews on JSR filters on YT, using them with their DJI drones and the quality seemed pretty good.

BTW, they sell the same JSR garbage on Amazon, too, except for twice as much as on AliExpress.

I'm not a lens/filter expert but I think the problem with the JSR filters might be that the inner part of the filter (indicated by the red arrow) is smooth. When you look at other filters, or even the lens protector that came with the Action 3, the same part of the filters have multiple ridges, kind of like stairs. Because this is smooth, maybe that is causing these reflection - but I'm not entirely sure. Otherwise the lens feels good quality.

I saw when you put the ND filter on you got some jittering if you look on windows in distance.

Looks like OA3 have same problem that GoPro have, making stabilization act like it is in low light.

Someone who has a "good quality" ND filter for the Action 3, could you shoot a short video where the camera is pointed towards a strong lightsource, eg sun? (Like when you are shooting the sky with clouds and the sun is out there.) Could you move the camera left and right to see if you filter produces a halo when is pointed towards a light source?

Here's a video I took. I'd like to see if a "good quality" filter - whatever that might be - produces similar results if pointed towards a light source. In this case I used an ND32-PL filter. (The seller claims there's nothing wrong with the filter.) Thank you!



And here's one without the filter:

Thanks for the footage!

I looked up those clip-on Telesin filters, I like them but unfortunately it doesn’t come with ND64 and I would like to have a 64 filter, too.

Here's the link to it if anyone interested:

I bought the skyreat kit on amazon i've tried just once but they are good quality and work very well. The problem of jitterng image is not a filter fault but i found the rocksteady seems to suffer the lower shutter speed. ND filter is needed if you want to follow the 180° rule (in my case i use 25p 1/50 or 50p 1/100). Maybe further update will make rocksteady more reliable on low shutter speed.

in my opinion the skyreat filter is ok, made of glass and the image is clear.

you can use the Telesin filter with action 1
make a paper ring or rubber and put it over the lens, the rubber ring from action3 is to thick.

I just checked all my new JSR filters( Aliexpress) they produce the halo when in photo mode when looking at a bright light source, in Video with rocksteady off, a big halo with rocksteady on or in + not as bad.. but you can see it more when you do the side to side  motion.. Sucks  I had JSR for my original Osmo Action .. Loved them no problems at all thats why I got the JSR again

Thanks for the update! That seems to have good reviews!

I'm not getting them, however. At home it would cost me $49.49 bucks with free shipping. Now they even give you a 20% discount for a total of $43.55 (including tax).  Here in the EU it would cost me $79.59! No way I'm paying 36 bucks extra just because it's the "EU". Sheesh... What a ripoff.
