One thing we get asked all the time is...
"What's the number 1 accessory I need for my camera?"
The answer? Filters. If you want your images and videos to be more cinematic and have more flexibility in post-production, then you'll need a good set of quality glass ND filters.
We shot a comparison video to show you the difference between having an ND filter on (and using them correctly in manual mode), and having them off to show you the drastically different shutter speeds. In the No Filter test, we increased the shutter speed to show you how high you have to go to be correctly exposed. Ultimately, the goal is to have your shutter speed double the frame rate. We shoot in 24FPS most of the time, which means we want a shutter speed of ideally 50 for a more cinematic look with motion blur in your video.
In this video, we had our shutter speed at 240 with the 3-stop ND filter on. Without the filter, the shutter speed was at 3200 (not good) and you will be able to see the difference in image quality.

These filters are a must have for your DJI Osmo Pocket and are no doubt the highest quality ND filters available on the market. Tiffen has been making cinema grade filters for 80 years now, which is longer than any other brand out there making DJI filters.
We use Tiffen Filters on our DJI Inspire 2 X7, DJI Mavic Pro 2, DJI Mavic Air, SONY Alpha series camera and RED Gemini. Having the same high quality glass filters from the same manufacturer across all our cameras keeps the continuity of our shots the same with minimal shift in color across the board.
The filters come in two kits, costing $49.99 for the 3 filter kit and $79.00 for the 6 filter kit.
- 3 Filter Kit Includes (ND4PL, ND8PL, ND16PL)
