    Hey all

    I have this nd filters which are just filters. No round frame. Just the inside of it. I dont know the name.
    Im not sure how to apply it to my p3a. Is there any tutorial about it?

    You remove the lens cover on your bird and place the filter in the cover then replace the cover. That should do it. Please remember to be careful when removing and replacing the lens cover, you don't want to damage the gimbal. Good luck.

    So just put it in the cover? Not replacing anything?

    If you're saying you bought gels, you should be able to install them like this.

    I applied the gel in the lens. From the outside it looks like its not sitting well.
    It looks a bit mashed/creased on the outside.

    Here is the screenshot from the video. Does it look like an ND8?

    Perhaps you're not installing them correctly. Check the instructions that came with your filters or contact the seller if you have no instructions.
