I have noticed there's a huge amount of flare when taking pictures anywhere near the sun - even if I use a lens hood without the gimbal cover. Do ND filters really reduce this flare, or would...

    What if the DJI Bubble that covers the camera was an ND Filter?

    What if that plastic bubble that DJI includes with the Mavic Pro was an ND Filter? Would it work? Well I saw some on the Lightake website, ordered them and tried them out. Conclusion... Interesting concept but not as good as a glass ND filter. However, if you have potential to damage your...

    Dutch Landscape

    One of my first ( and many to follow ) videos I created with the Mavic. This one was filmed above typical landscaping in The Netherlands, close to my hometown. Unfortunate I did find out I have the blur issue in right lower corner, so'll be sending it back to DJI soon :( Hope you like the video.

    Unboxing Taco ND filter kit - ND 4, 8, 16, 32 + UV

    This kit contains ND 4, 8, 16 and 32 filters + 1 pcs. UV filter and a very nice case. The filter can stay on during gimbal calibration. Got it off ebay for $54, that seems like a pretty sweet deal to me.
