Hi Guys,

Here is a little (hastily edited) sample of what the PolarPro ND16 filter (not Polarized) looks like on the Phantom 4 Pro in 4k. I believe this was the "Film-H" color profile. I did no color, frame, scale, or rotation correction in Premiere. As you can see in the opening shot, the gimbal rotation is pretty bad, especially when you can see the ocean horizon line.

Anyways, enjoy this little clip!

You can and often have to adjust the horizon using a long press on C2 and right wheel combo move.

Oahu has lots of really nice spots to fly that do not involve flying over populated areas. Hope you consider the risks of an accident and choose wisely on your next flights

Aloha Tony,

     As Mike noted, Makiki is a little dense, but the slope of Punchbowl is less than a quarter mile away and was even in the video.  Just fly over that slope so your videos do not get you in trouble with the FAA.

Aloha and Drone On!

I am having doubts about ND filters in general.  All the videos I have used ND filters on have been too dark and required post processing to get the brightness back.  The dynamic range seems compromised. Happen with stills and video.  Everything I do without ND's looks great.  I suspect I will need a lot of video experience to get the best from them.

Thanks for sharing.

I'm tempted to upgrade my P4 to the Pro, but seeing the exact same tilted horizon issues in so many P4 and P4Pro video's is a worry.

With regards to the ND filters, I find them very useful for sunset Photography at a beach only. Anywhere where you want to add a light bit of moment into a still image. For example, a wave breaking.

When it comes to video though, they are completely useless in my opinion. I get far better results without them at better ISO levels, less noise, and better dynamic range.
