For those of you who don’t know what aerial filters are, they will help make your videos look more natural, smoother and better exposed. The one we are talking about today is the Sandmarc Aerial Filter Pack for DJI Mavic.
The first thing that contributes to the video sharpness, quality and durability is the construction. The filter glass uses an industrial grade multi-coating process. Thanks to the materials, the transmission of light and colors is enhanced while the aluminum frame material ensures each filter is super lightweight.
The pack comes with different filters, resulting in a versatile use. Since the set includes both ND and polarized filters, you can use them to shoot different landscapes under different light settings and weather conditions. You’ll also be able to add motion blur and create natural looking videos.
So, what do you get in a pack? It includes an ND4 (2-Stop ND), ND8 (3-Stop ND), ND16 (4-Stop ND) and a polarized filter. Depending on the weather, you’ll easily decide on which one to use. For example, ND4 is great for cloudy and moderately sunny days, ND8 for moderately sunny, not cloudy days and ND16 for bright sunny days. The polarized filter, on the other hand, will suppress the glare created by the sun, improve dynamic range and bring out colors.
Filters come packed in a nice case and are compatible only with DJI Mavic. You should also know that they are Gimbal calibration tested and that you can leave the filter on prior to start-up.
