Hey Ken,
It seems the two most popular filters right now (which are actually available) are the Polar Pro and PGYTech. It appears the Polar Pro requires installation AFTER the gimbal initializes where the PGY has enough clearance to stay on. The question I have is, will it hurt the gimbal at all to install the Polar Pro filters after the gimbal initializes? If you hold it steady and stable, do you think there is any damage that can be done by installing (or changing from ND8 to ND16) while powered up?

I know DJI has some coming...eventually.... ;)

I've read that Polar Pro has a new set coming that will be made of aluminum and can be installed prior to initializing.

One thing I don't know is how well the PGY set is made.

Thanks in advance to you and anyone else who has good feedback!

I have not tested any of the filters. I know DJI will have filters available at some point.
The installation video Polar Pro has says it's guaranteed to work with the gimbal. If there ever was an issue, then you could contact them.

No problem. I wasn't expecting you to provide an opinion of the filters themselves. I'm just curious about your opinion if theres any danger in damaging the gimbal by installing after it's powered up and initialized.

Polar Pro is a great company and Polar Pro is guaranteeing them to work with the Mavic.

Do you have a rough timeline of when DJI might have their own filters available? (early/late 2017?)
