Polar PRO Zenmuse X5 Filter 6-Pack
- Ex Tax: 163.85€
The DJI Inspire 1 Pro Filters are PolarPro’s most advanced filters to date using ultra high definition glass and the most advanced multi-coating process available. The Zenmuse X5 MFT 15mm filter engineering is designed to be as lightweight as possible to ensure smooth gimbal operation.
Circular Polarizer Filter (CP): (7.75 grams) The CP filter is used for reducing glare off of the ground, water, and sky. This filter is especially important while flying because shooting from an elevated perspective causes the camera to pick up a lot of reflection of the ground. The polarizer helps improve color saturation in bright scenes and also improve contrast. In addition to glare reduction the Polarizer will make the sky a deeper blue and allow clouds to pop. Multi-Coated UHD glass for pristine optics.
3-Stop Neutral Density Filter (ND8): (6.06 grams) The ND8 filter reduces 3 f-stops of light. Generally speaking, trying to hold aperture at f2.8 or f5.6 the ND8 filter would be used on a cloudy to partly cloudy day to knock shutter down to 1/60th. Multi-Coated UHD glass for pristine optics.
4-Stop Neutral Density Filter (ND16): (5.97 grams) The ND16 filter reduces 4 f-stops of light. Generally speaking, holding aperture at f2.8 or f5.6 this ND16 filter would be used on a mostly sunny day to get shutter speed down to 1/60th. Multi-Coated UHD glass for pristine optics.
5-Stop Neutral Density Filter (ND32): (5.83 grams) The ND32 filter reduces 5 f-stops of light. Assuming an aperture of f2.8 or f5.6 this filter would be used on an extremely sunny and bright day to get shutter speed on the DJI Inspire 1 Pro down to 1/60th. Multi-Coated UHD glass for pristine optics.
3-Stop Neutral Density Polarized Filter (ND8/PL): ( 9.25 grams) The ND8/PL is a specialty filter made specifically for aerial filming. This filter allows you to achieve a 3-stop polarizer without stacking filters and adding excess weight to the X5 gimbal. Perfect for filming near water or locations with a lot of reflecting light. The ND8/PL makes the sky a nice deep blue and clouds to pop. Great for getting shutter to 1/60th on partly cloudy days and also reducing reflections and glare. Multi-Coated UHD glass for pristine optics.
4-Stop Neutral Density Polarized Filter (ND16/PL): (9.25 grams) The ND16/PL is a unique combo filter specifically made to reduce shutter speed and glare, without stacking filters. The ND16/PL is perfect for filming on mostly sunny days, allowing you to hold aperture at f2.8 and get a shutter speed of 1/60th. Multi-Coated UHD glass for pristine optics.
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.
