    We would like to share some test results for our new ND filter



    with a color temperature meter. Per our testing, the color shift is less than 100K difference.

    Before testing, the meter read:

    ND4 reading:
    P1020841.JPG
    ND8 reading:
    P1020842.JPG
    ND16 reading:
    P1020843.JPG
    ND32 reading
    P1020844.JPG
    We hope this little test can help someone who wants to buy or already owns the filters.

    Is an ND32 really needed, or would that be needed mainly in bright snowy conditions?

    Hey Taco...

    I'm guessing the ND4 is the darker filter?

    And do you not have a side by side comparison of filter with proper setting, next to same day video without filter?

    In the video below you are using a ND16 and 95% of the video was taken in the shade on a sunny day. I personally would like to see 95% of the video taken in all sunny conditions with the necessary ND? filter.

    Also Taco...

    The video below is most likely a Phantom 3 Pro. It would be nice knowing all the camera settings used for the video.

    yes in order to slow down the shutter speed, ND32 is needed for a very bright day.

    ND32 is the darkest in our filter set. We will share more video soon. We shoot in LOG mode with custom style ( -1 sharpness -2 saturation, -3 contrast)

    I just placed my order for these. I like the weight and ease of handling. And the price is certainly reasonable.

    Normal daytime in NC.. Lots of sun, sometimes at the lake. General rule to use the 8 or 16? Which one to try first to try and avoid having to switch? Thanks!

    I would be interested if this was also CP and not just ND.

    Just ordered the complete set this morning and it was already shipped. Wish they would tell me how long it will take all the way from Hong Kong to Florida. Can't wait to get them.
