    Got these in the mail today!

    Sun shade from DJI has nice touch material and Ofcoz it fits with the radio nicely. Sun shade is a must if you fly your phantom in the day light.

    The ND16 filter will improve your video to give you a cinematic look. With the ND16 filter, I can slow the shutter way down even on under bright sun light. I can shoot 1080p 60fps, 1/120 shutter and ISO 100 while maintaining proper exposure. The slow shutter will give your video a motion blur look.

    Where did you buy ND filter? How would it work on the beach?

    Got it from a local DJI dealer. Depends on the light condition, that's why there are different grade of ND you can get. But for sunny condition, I will only look into ND8 or ND16. Otherwise it wouldn't be able to slow the shutter down to create that cinematic style effect.

    Rule of thumb for shutter: double the number of your frame rate, for example if you are shooting 60fps=1/120 shutter, 30fps=1/60 shutter.
