Are you one of those people is ready to take your photographic experience to another level? You really want to purchase a pack of filters but you're just so unsure which ones will do the job? We've created a table to help you decide!

 

 Type: Filters: When To Use:
DJI Inspire 1 Filters 3-Pack

CP: Used to enhance aerial videos by reducing the amount of light reflecting off the ground, sky, or water. Removing this reflecting light allows the Phantom 3 to capture beautifully saturated colours and improves contrast. 

ND8: The darkest shade and should be used on very bright days. This filter helps prevent lens flare, and reduces any mild rolling shutter. This filter also slows the shutter speed enough to blur the propellers when they are in frame. 

ND16: Used on partly cloudy to mildly sunny days where we need to knock the shutter down by 4 stops to achieve a shutter of 1/60th.

For use with the DJI Osmo & Inspire 1 (X3 and Z3) camera

CP: Used in all conditions to help reduce glare when shutter-speed control is not an issue.

ND8: For use when cloudy/mostly cloudy and the camera is shooting at 1/500th.

ND16: Best for partly cloudy or mostly sunny conditions when the camera is at 1/1000th.

DJI Inspire 1 Filters 6-Pack

PL1: 

ND8: The darkest shade and should be used on very bright days. This filter helps prevent lens flare, and reduces any mild rolling shutter. This filter also slows the shutter speed enough to blur the propellers when they are in frame. 

ND16: Used on partly cloudy to mildly sunny days where we need to knock the shutter down by 4 stops to achieve a shutter of 1/60th.

ND32: The 5-Stop ND filter is what we use on extremely bright days. This is a very dark filter so it should only be used where there is enough available light to reduce. We use this shooting in the desert or over snow on very bright days. 

ND8/PL: This filter reduces the shutter speed by 3 stops while also providing polarization. Perfect for conditions that are too bright for the CP filter, the ND8/PL allows you to reduce the shutter speed 3 stops while also capturing beautifully saturated colors. 

ND16/PL: Provides 4 stops of shutter speed reduction while also providing polarization. This is our go-to filter for sunny days where we want to capture saturated colors and improve saturation.

For use with the DJI Osmo & Inspire 1 (X3 and Z3) camera

PL1:

ND8: For use when cloudy/mostly cloudy and the camera is shooting at 1/500th.

ND16: Best for partly cloudy or mostly sunny conditions when the camera is at 1/1000th.

ND32: For use in very bright and sunny conditions when the camera is shooting at 1/1250th.

ND8/PL: Best used on cloudy/mostly cloudy days when polarisation is needed.

ND16/PL: For use in mostly sunny flying conditions when polarisation is needed.

 

DJI Zenmuse X5 Inspire 1 Pro Filters 3-Pack

UV: Used for lens protection during flight/crashes when you do not need any aperture/shutter control. Multi-coated Ultra-HD glass for pristine optics.

CP: Used to enhance aerial videos by reducing the amount of light reflecting off the ground, sky, or water. Removing this reflecting light allows the Phantom 3 to capture beautifully saturated colours and improves contrast. 

ND8: The darkest shade and should be used on very bright days. This filter helps prevent lens flare, and reduces any mild rolling shutter. This filter also slows the shutter speed enough to blur the propellers when they are in frame. 

UV: This UV filter will cut haze and make clouds pop a bit more.

CP: Used in all conditions to help reduce glare when shutter-speed control is not an issue.

ND8: For use when cloudy/mostly cloudy and the camera is shooting at 1/500th.
