    if you've never used filters... then you have ruined a lot of your shots.... they are a must.

    Does the instruction say to put on the filters after the Mavic has done it's startup dance or can the gimble do it's dance with the filter attached?

    Im completely new to this - what are the best filter types for each situation (i.e., extremely bright clear days, water shots, etc)? Is there a filter type that will generally do 'well' for most situations? Thanks

    Has anyone put them on and started up the mavic? I ordered some off brand filters off Amazon and returned them because the gimbal would refuse to move after startup when installed. I have the polar pros on order and curious how the gimbal reacts to them being installed

    It says to install after camera has initialised.

    I ordered the PGY ones that can be initialised with filters installed. I hope the optics is as good as the PolarPros (considering they are half price).

    On the P3A with f2.8 stop.
    Cloudy = 16
    Clear Sunny = 32
    Clear Sunny and snow = 64

    Might be a little different with Mavic's F2.2
    Someone will need to confirm.

    This is not true. ND filters are there to slow down the shutter speed for 'the 24fps cinematic' motion blur.
    If you are just a hobbyist, then the auto setting is still brilliant to the average Joe.
    Most people don't even know the difference between 30 and 60 fps.

    I have tried my Polar Pro filters and you do need to put them on after the gimbal initializes. That is how I did it, following the instructions but became aware that it is definitely necessary when I came in for a battery change and forgot about the filter being on. It can not initialize with the filter on. I even got an warning ️ on screen about gimbal overload or something to that effect. So, you must remove and reapply the filter when powering down. Other than that, the filters fit very well and putting them on and removing them went very well. I haven't shot enough to compare the effects of them but for reducing light they are spot on in doing that correctly.

    So what am I doing wrong here? I was just testing the fit and it's loose. The filter won't stay on. And it's on all the way.
