PowerExtra launch professional DJI Mavic Pro Filter set, incorporating a UV, CPL and 2 x ND Filters.

PowerExtra DJI Mavic Pro Filter Kit (CPL/ND/UV) Review & Comparison Test

Just a single PolarPro filter for the DJI Mavic Pro can cost in excess of $25 but cheaper filters are now available. PowerExtra have just launched their premium kit incorporating four high-grade filters (UV, CPL, ND4 and ND8), in this review we will test them.

The DJI Mavic Pro will always capture stunning scenic video without the use of a third-party filter, but incorporate the use of filters into your routine and the end result will dramatically improve your output and reduce post-production time.

A closer look…

The filters only weigh 0.7g and therefore do not affect the operation of the DJI Mavic gimbal, in our review we tested the gimbal calibration routine with a filter fitted, the process completed successfully without error.

It is not possible to stack the filters (i.e. to connect the CPL and then stack an ND4 on top), this would also overload the gimbal of the Mavic.

Many DJI Mavic Pro pilots will be unaware of how to use these filters correctly and the advantages that they can bring to the output.

As part of our review we have incorporated an element of tutorial to illustrate how to utilise them and to showcase the results that can be achieved through a number of split-screen comparisons.
