One notable absence in the launch of the DJI Mavic Mini was a range of ND filters designed for the new drone. DJI has sets of their own branded filters for many of their products like the Osmo Pocket and Osmo Action as well as for drones including the Phantom 4, Mavic Pro and Mavic Air. But there is nothing for the Mavic Mini and no obvious way to attach filters, either.

Filter manufacturer Tiffen, however, has not been resting. They’ve now announced a new line of filter kits designed specifically for the DJI Mavic Mini which includes both straight NDs as well as ND polarizers.

Tiffen says that “both novice and experienced drone pilots will benefit from the combination of the Tiffen ND and ND/Polar filters and hte Mavic Mini, allowing you to create powerful and impactful imagery”. They boast waterproofing and scratch-resistant coatings with optical glass designed for 4K (even though the Mavic Mini only shoots 2.7K). They also come with an impressive 10-year warranty.

Two sets of filters are available. One is a 3-filter kit, priced at $59.99 which includes ND4/PL, ND8/PL and ND16/PL filters. A 6-filter kit is also available for $89.99 which includes those same three ND polarizers along with straight ND4, ND8 and ND16 filters.

Both kids are available to pre-order now on the Tiffen website and ship this month

    They’ll put it over the 249g all up weight thought. Just saying.

      That is a very good point. That may be why DJI didn’t release any of their own.

    PolarPro had to recall its Polarizer because the gimbal wouldn’t work due to extra weight of the Polarizer. Has this Polarizer been tested?

      Well, it’s not shipping yet, so presumably Tiffen has tested it, but that’ll probably be about it. :)

        Well, PYGTech tested theirs too presumably and then released it and then had so many complaints it had to have a recall (and it did pay back customers). But it hasn’t come out with anything new. So I sure hope this PL is light enough to not affect the gimbal’s performance. Otherwise, this release will be an expensive experiment.

          Not all companies operate the same way. Just because one company failed, doesn’t automatically mean all the others will. :)
