    I have a set of the Taco ND filters. Very nice but tough to change in the field, especially when cold. The really fine threads make it tricky swapping filters. Does anyone make a "slip over the DJI stock filter" ND filter that is any good? Thanks guys.

    You can find a list of commonly used slide-on lens filters here.

    These just arrived in my mailbox today. Haven't had a chance to fly with them yet but you get 9 filter gels (stackable) & 3 gel holders that slip right over the stock lens filter. All store in a tiny hinged tin & the holder & 1 filter weigh only .7 grams! Pretty cool for only $27.

    That's the kit I'm trying out right now. Unfortunately I don't know enough about filters to be able to offer any advice LOL!

    This explains how to use ND filters. I have the same one that DirtyBird has.

    I have the DitzCo kit too. It's the best gel kit available right now due to its design. You can easily handle the gels without getting fingerprints on them.

    The slipons look great but I wonder if they might vibrate off especially if it's cold. I wonder if you could trim them a little and place them under the camera lens cover?

    I really like the design with the little tabs so you don't leave prints on the main part of the gel.
