Hi Guys,

I am very new to the DJI world of filming drones and awaiting my Mavic to be shipped. While waiting I have been trying to educate myself as thoroughly as possible. Currently my quest for knowledge has led me to start questioning two things: Filters and Editing software.

It seems like everyone is using filters ND filters, I saw that DJI just came out with a set and from what I hear polar Pro Cinema series is a good option as well. Not really sure which I should look for the shutter or vivid series or if I should just wait for the 20 days til shipping on the DJI ones. I'd love to hear some feedback on what I should be getting. I live in San Francisco and plan to do some filming on the coasts up here as well as along the delta in the central valley of California. I expect mostly sunny days.

As far as editing software to make these movies presentable what are you using? I used to do a lot of underwater photography and video, but I stopped chasing sharks years ago (yes I took the pic in my profile) and haven't edited in maybe 8 years. I don't yet understand all the exporting and film modes yet, but I figure that will come in time. Any resources/ suggestions you can share to help me make the right choices would be appreciated

Thanks
DT

Sweet I'll download it now. Thanks for the help. I can run some tests with my Tiny Whoop videos ahead of my Mavic showing up.

which set do you have? I don't really understand the differences in types except in the ND number ND4 ND8 etc but some have PL after it...I assume that may mean polarized..is that needed?
