Life Is More Interesting With Filters

23 Jun

 

 

You and your drone both see life in all its beauty, however there is no harm in spicing it up a bit to reach its jaw-dropping potential. Filters are the way to go here and Polar Pro has provided us here at Sphere with the goods. Enhancing your video with these filters to reach cinema level visuals will put you at the top of your game, now its time to find the right one for you.

 

Lets start of with the different types of filters and what they can do.

CP
The CP Filter also know as the Circular Polariser helps to reduce glare and increase colour stauration.
When to use: Can be used in all conditions when shutter speed is not an issue.

UV
The UV Filter is used to reduce lens flare and increase light transmission as well as a protective layer for the camera in the case of a crash.
When to use: Anytime

ND4
The ND4 Filter will reduce the camera's shutter speed by 2 f-stops.
When to use: Dusk or Dawn - Cloudy Days

ND4/PL
The ND4 Filter will reduce the camera's shutter speed by 2 f-stops and polarises light.
When to use: Dusk or Dawn - Cloudy Days

ND8
The ND8 Filter reduces the shutter speed by 3 stops which achieves a shutter speed of 1/60th.
When to use: Mildly Sunny Days

ND8/PL
The ND8/PL Filter reduces the cameras shutter speed by 3 f-stops as well as reducing glare and increasing colour saturation from its polarising aspect.
When to use: Partly Cloudy Days

ND16
The ND16 Filter reduces the shutter speed by 4 f-stops and is perfect when you are shooting somewhere bright like the desert or over snow.
When to use: Very Bright Days

ND16/PL
The ND16/PL Filter reduces the shutter speed by 4 f-stops and polarises the visual with saturated colours.
When to use: Bright Sunny Days

ND32
The ND32 Filter reduces the shutter speed by 5 f-stops as well as reducing glare. Perfect to use when the native shutter speed is 1/2000th.
When to use: Bright Sunny Days

ND64
The ND64 Filter reduces the cameras shutter speed by 6 f-stops. It is often used when the native shutter speed is 1/32000th as well as long exposure photography.

The great thing about these filters is that they are all specially designed with Polar Pro's Airframe Construction to achieve a feather-light attachment to the aircraft, made with an aluminium frame in order for the gimbal to operate smoothly.
