Polarizer (fixed): The fixed Spark Polarizer filter is pre-set to a horizontal polarization angle. This is the angle that will reduce the broadest amount of glare. It is designed to be extremely easy to use, just install it and fly. The Polarizer helps reduce glare and increase color saturation and contrast.
ND8 filter: The ND8 Spark Filter reduces the cameras shutter speed by 3-stops. The purpose of an ND filter is to slow shutter speed and give your video a smooth cinematic look. Generally, you will use an ND8 on a cloudy to partly cloudy day for best results.
ND16 filter: The ND16 Spark Filter reduces the cameras shutter speed by 4-stops. With this filter, you will get the best results on Partly cloudy to Sunny days. The ND16 will slow the DJI Spark’s shutter speed to give your videos a smooth and cinematic look.
ND32 filter: The PolarPro ND32 filter for the DJI Spark reduces shutter speed by 5-stops. This filter should be used on very bright and sunny days. This filter will reduce the shutter speed and leave the color profile unchanged.
ND8/PL (fixed): The ND8/PL filter reduces the shutter speed by 3-stops and polarizes the scene. This filter enables a slower shutter speed and increased color saturation and glare reduction. The Polarizer is fixed horizontally which covers a broad amount of glare. Great for Partly cloudy days.
ND 16/PL (fixed): The ND8/PL filter reduces the shutter speed by 4-stops and polarizes the scene. This filter enables a slower shutter speed and increased color saturation and glare reduction. The Polarizer is fixed horizontally which covers a broad amount of glare. Great for sunny days.
WHAT DOES AN ND FILTER DO?
The primary purpose of an ND filter is to reduce shutter speed. The 180-degree rule of shutter is a standard in motion pictures and cinema. This principle states that shutter speed should be double frame rate to get each frame to blend together, creating a smooth traditional cinema look. If you are shooting 4K 30 frames per second, you would want your shutter speed to be 1/60th. To achieve a 1/60th shutter speed outdoors, typically you will need an ND filter. You will use different ND filters for different lighting conditions. Generally, the brighter it is outside, the stronger the ND filter you will need. To summarize, ND filters help lower shutter speed to capture smooth, cinematic content.
WHAT DOES A POLARIZER FILTER DO?
A polarizer helps reduce glare reflecting off water, the ground, trees, and pretty much everything under the sun. By reducing glare, enhanced and more saturated colors are left behind making your videos or images pop. In addition to increased color saturation a polarizer filter will help increase contrast.
WHAT IS AN ND/PL FILTER?
An ND/PL is a single element filter which both reduces the shutter speed and also glare.
IS IT SAFE TO USE FILTERS WITH THE GIMBAL?
We put all our filters through a variety of gimbal load tests. All our DJI Spark filters are below the maximum weight threshold we established with the DJI Spark. We fully guarantee filter compatibility with the DJI Spark camera/gimbal and that it will have no negative effects on your gimbal. We have been manufacturing filters for gimbals and drones for 4 years. Our brand prides itself on the quality and testing of every filter designed to make sure it will not negatively affect the gimbal.
