PolarPro Cinema Series Vivid Collection
;ere’s no question about the quality of the cameras on popular drones like the DJI
Phantoms and Mavic, GoPro Karma, and Autel Robotics X-Star. Just as with any other
camera, however, lens filters always give that something extra to make the shots
amazing. With the recent release of the Cinema Series Vivid Collection, industry leader
PolarPro lets amateur videographers take advantage of cinema-quality lens filters.
;e PolarPro Series lens filters are a combination of neutral density and a polarizer,
and are a direct replacement for the drone camera’s stock UV filters. Constructed of very
light aluminum and multicoated glass, the Vivid Collection filter kit includes three filters:
ND4/PL (two-stop filter plus polarizer), ND8/PL (three-stop filter plus polarizer), and
ND16/PL (four-stop filter plus polarizer). Included with the filters are individual storage
bags, and all orders placed directly with PolarPro come with a storage case.
PolarPro is no stranger to the lens-filter game. Having made high-quality lens filters
and accessories for action camera users and drone pilots for some time, PolarPro’s
Cinema Series filter set for my Autel Robotics X-Star was exactly what the director of
photography ordered! ;e collection starts at $79.99.—Kevin McCarthy
