    Anyone, have any experience with these filters. Specifically does their small amount of weight effect the gimbal's balance?

    Jimmy these are currently the best in class P3 ND/CP filters out there. Do a quick search on the forum for experiences

    No problems with the gimbal while using the filter. They rock!

    So I received my ND16 from SRP yesterday.. wow the quality is amazing. I do though notice that my camera stock is level/balanced (points where you put it when off), but the filter makes it flop downward and not balance. I know this has been asked, but I didn't find a super clear answer.. Is this OK? Do I need to balance? I am just paranoid.

    Thanks

    I have the SRP ND 8/CP filter. I didn't have to balance the the gimbal, and have no desire to do so.

    My horizon is pretty straight(one of the lucky ones).

    Here is a test flight with dashware. Camera was set to log. Still trying to master these settings and post...

    Anyway take a look.

    I don't have that brand of filter, I chose to purchase the RageCams and no issues at all with performance. It didn't have a problem whatsoever. I recorded a comparison video for the 3 filters I purchased -
