Why Use A Neutral Density Filter?

The primary purpose of an ND filter is to reduce camera shutter speed. The 180-degree rule of shutter is a standard in motion pictures and cinema. This principle states that shutter speed should be double the frame rate to get each frame to blend together in order to create a smooth, cinematic look and feel.  If you are shooting in 4K at 30 frames per second, you want your shutter speed to be near 1/60th. To achieve a 1/60th shutter speed outdoors, typically you will need an ND filter. You will use different strengths of ND filters for different lighting conditions. Generally, the brighter it is outside, the stronger the ND filter you will need.  To summarize, ND filters help lower shutter speed to capture smooth, cinematic content.

How Does a Polarizer Filter Work?

A Polarizer helps reduce glare reflecting off of water, the ground, trees and pretty much everything under the sun. By reducing glare, enhanced and more saturated colours are left behind making your videos or images pop. In addition to increased colour saturation, a Polarizer filter will help increase contrast.

Why use a UV filter?

UV filters help reduce lens flare when shooting into the sun. Most drones come with a stock UV filter that must be removed before fitting other filters (POlariser or ND).
