ND Filters Vs. No Filters | DJI Mavic Waypoint Flight

Are you sick of battling the sun with your drone footage? Take care of that problem while gaining many other benefits with a Neutral Density (ND) Filter for your drone camera, theones I am using are Polar Pro. There are many drones out there and an ND filter for almost all of them, I will link some of the common ones below. ND filters are like sunglasses for your drone and will fix that pesky problem of blown out whites on that hot summer day. Watch to learn more from a less technical point of view, if you are beginning your research, this is a good starting point.

    Ok! Nick great work Bro. As for the Ndpl screw on filters,I had the same prob ! Just put a little WD 40 on the Zoom camera thread and gently work the filter progressively on, as it needs to go all the way on, as per stock filter!! Happy lock down Bro! Ali from WA

    Nice comparison. I’ve gotta get some filters. I just got the Mavic Mini. Just have to figure out which filters to buy.

    As a simple minded drone enthusiastic videographer I always find ur yt videos beneficial to the broad spectrum of my advancement as a NoViCe in drone videography. In the years ahead as a "C-NiCk" Corona subscriber & dedicated fallower there are about a half of dozen YouTubers I hope to someday meet… Since the 4:20 holiday is a favorite holiday of the lead into another sun summer fun. How’s 2025🤔 at Scottsdale Arizona look for ur schedule being open? I plan to revisit Talking Stik Resort for another pool party even though I might have to sneak in cuz at 60 years young having so much fun will probably be against a/the law!!!

    Hola Nick, he tenido el mismo problema con los filtros, no enroscan correctamente, me lleve una mala impresión de estos, los reclamé a polar pro, pero no me dieron soluciones acordes, una pena, ya que aquí en mi país es un accesorio realmente caro. También la falta de instrucciones para graduar correctamente la polarización me llamo la atención. La verdad esperaba mas de estos filtros, y hubiese sido feliz si me devolvían el dinero. Muy buenas pruebas, saludos desde Argentina
