The dynamic range of the camera on the P4 still seems a bit underpar in many of the videos I`ve seen. I wonder whether the gimbal could smoothly handle the split graduated filter that Tiffen make in the 58mm thread size? Obviously you`d need a step-up ring too.
This is the filter: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/pr ... eutral_Density.html
Thoughts anyone?

That is going to be a very heavy setup to put on the Phantom 4 gimbal.
We make grads specifically for the Phantom 4 which only weigh 4 grams.

Let me know if you have any questions on them,

Are you serious? A 58mm thread is absolutely monstrous compared to the P3/P4s' lens thread. The step up ring would be hilariously oversized. There's no way the gimbal could balance the weight.

Lido-bmt, there are ways to answer a question without coming across as arrogant/condescending.

The question is ridiculous because the person did NO background research at all. It's one thing to ask an intelligent question, and another to have someone tell you what to do because you were too lazy to do even the most basic reading. This is like asking if you could use a roller skate wheel on a car.

Two problems with using a 58mm lens and step-up adapter:

1. Weight. The camera will be front-heavy and the gimbal is likely to rant out an error about it being overloaded
2. Size. The lens will scrape the ground unless you have aftermarket extended landing gear
