The PolarPro filter 3-Pack for the DJI Inspire 1, Osmo camera is an outstanding set for capturing epic aerial videos. Included are PolarPro’s the three most popular filters for aerial imaging: Circular Polarizer (CP), 3-stop ND (ND8), and 4-stop ND (ND16). Each filter is carefully designed to be ultra-light for use with the DJI Inspire 1 gimbal. The light weight construction ensures the gimbal will operate smoothly. The PolarPro Inspire 1 filters are made with HD glass ensuring your videos and images will have razor-sharp clarity.
PolarPro CP Polarizer Filter (Glare Reduction):
The Circular Polarizer Filter reduces the large amount of glare bouncing off the ground and water when filming from an elevated perspective. The Polarizer filter is a great tool to help increase color saturation and contrast, brining your aerial images to life.
PolarPro Neutral Density 3-Stop (ND8):
This 3-Stop Neutral Density (ND) filter reduces the camera’s shutter speed by 3-stops. The ND8 filter is perfect for getting the shutter speed to 1/60th on cloudy to partly-cloudy days.
PolarPro Neutral Density 4-Stop (ND16):
The 4-Stop ND Filter will reduce the camera’s shutter speed by 4 f-stops. Generally you will use this to achieve a 1/60th shutter speed on partly sunny to sunny days. If the sun is out this is our go-to filter for filming.
The Following guideline is a good starting point for when to use each filter while filming with your Inspire 1, Phantom 3, or Solo. The goal of this chart is to reduce the camera’s shutter speed to 1/60th to give areal videos a smooth cinematic look, rather than a choppy high shutter speed look. A popular way of filming areal video is to have your shutter speed at double the frame rate. So if you are shooting 1080/60, then you want to try to achieve a 1/120th shutter speed. Or if filming 4K/30 or 24 you will want to be near 1/60th shutter speed.
