Has anyone seen a variable ND filter that fits on the Phantom 4?

There are a few of them out there, Any reason you prefer a variable over regular ND's?

The reason we don't make variable ND's is that they contain 2 glass elements, the less glass you shoot through the better the image quality will be. The 2 glass elements also cause variable ND's to weigh more.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

With a variable I don't have to carry extra filters and have to keep unscrewing and screwing. Always afraid of cross threading them in the field.  I have large brightness changes here in the desert and mountains. They work great on the OSMO.....no sharpness issues. Have not seen one for the P4 yet.

Bought one from aliexpress was heavier and moreless it was two polarized filters where according to the angle you reduce/increase the light. Now i am using the standard dji nd filters as the weight wont affect the gimpal servo.

I personally use our ND8/PL and ND16/PL 90% of the time in California.

A good starter set would probably be ND8, ND16 , ND32 those ND's will cover a large range of conditions.

Let me know if you have any other questions!
