I bought these for $35 in eBay. Not sure if they are good or not for the Mavic Pro?

It depends on when they were manufactured, the earlier versions would not pass a gimbal calibration on startup and would have to be installed with the gimbal and copter operating.

That was not me who took the pic... That's the seller in eBay. I do not have yet the product. I just bought it a few hours ago.

I never own a polar pro filter. I always buy the cheapest chinese knock off for around $30. I bought the polar pro because I never saw these so low in price.

I think you got a great price on some filters by a well known, trusted, and proven manufacturer. What filters are the most appropriate depends on the filming conditions, but if you would have asked about what filters to get first, I probably would have recommended the cinema series ND4-PL-ND16-PL by Polar pro.

I checked the cinema series and is over $149 dollars. Way too much for ND filters.

Good morning macoman, I have a set of sunnylife filters (what I can afford for now) I think anything Polarpro is nice as they are the most expensive and highly recommended brand. They will most definitely enhance your filing experience. I just hope they don’t hit the gimbal body during startup. I always leave the gimbal stabilizer on when placing or removing each filter and make sure the filter is pushed on nice, snug and aligned with the little gold band on the camera lens. I guess if your not happy with them you can always sell them on but I recon you’ll be happy. Cheers mate from a fellow drone addict Spike AU.

Hello Spike, I have the same filters as yours. Sunnylife. I bought it for $30 bucks. But these polarpro are only $35 bucks. I can't pass this deal in a well known brand.
