    A friend surprised me with these today - I mentioned that I needed filters and she bought these for me. I know they are cheap Im just wondering if anyone has experience using them? I understand that there are different quality ones, what is the advantage of using a more expensive filter? Also, I noticed it added weight to the lens, could it damage the gimbal motor?

    What filters did you get? Plastic or glass? Optics is what important in video or photography.
    Filter adds additional layer between objects and camera sensor it better be perfect.

    Also, this one it adds additional weight to the camera not sure if its a good thing.
