Hot on the heels of DJI’s announcement of the Osmo Action camera, PolarPro is here to announce new filters for it. There are six different packs available, each offering a different combination of filters depending on your needs. They’re based on PolarPro’s very popular range of ND and ND/PL filters for drones, the Osmo Pocket and GoPro cameras, but these are designed specifically to fit the Osmo Action.
Today, PolarPro has announced their new Peter McKinnon Edition Variable ND filters. They’re available in two strengths of 2-5 stops and 6-9 stops. I’ve been fortunate enough to have the 77mm 2-5 stops version in my possession for the last couple of weeks. As I write this, I’m sitting in Glasgow airport waiting to board a plane to take it on a real test in the deserts of Arizona, but I’ve been able to have enough of a play with it to give some first impressions.
When it comes to shooting photos or video on drones, it quickly becomes apparent that filters are key to getting the best footage. And the first name that springs to mind for drone filters is PolarPro. They’ve pretty much been the leading company for drone camera filters since they started taking to the air.
Today, though, PolarPro announce that they’re expanding their range to include larger lenses for DSLRs, mirrorless and cinema cameras with the new QuartzLine series of filters. It looks like their whole range for drones has been scaled up to fit the larger lenses in a variety of sizes.
Well, we knew it wouldn’t be long before the DJI Mavic Air accessories started to appear, especially if PolarPro have anything to do with it. PolarPro has now released the new DJI Mavic Air versions of their cinema filter series. These include neutral density and polarising filters to help provide more control over shutter speed, glare and saturation. They’ve also announced a couple of new cases, as well as a DJI Mavic Air version of their popular Katana system.
