    Not for Phantom 2 HD-3D

          Comments about Polar Pro "Frame" Glass Neutral Density Filter for GoPro HERO3 / HERO3+ / HERO4:

          This filter is listed as an accessory for the Phantom 2. It is too heavy to be used in conjunction with the HD-3D gimbal without a counterbalance. I do not recommend this item for use with DJI Phantom 2 HD-3d gimbal.Otherwise this is a nice bit of glass.

            Comments about Polar Pro "Frame" Glass Neutral Density Filter for GoPro HERO3 / HERO3+ / HERO4:

            I use the Polar Pro ND filter with my GoPro 3 when mounted on a Phantom 2. Reduces the chance of overexposure in the early morning and later afternoon. It will also help eliminate the 'jello' effect when filming movies. Good for both movies and stills. Only 10g and has no impact on the Phantom gimbal.

              I have rated 3 stars as I have not used by myself. But I have seen using by my friend whom I purchased one for him. As per him, he said its good. I haven't used myself as I am waiting for the NEW HERO4 black edition. Hope it works like for Hero3.

                  No complaints, this works as advertised. It adds nice depth to the image, eliminates a lot of glare and gets rid of the jello effect.

                    Greatly reduces blown out shots in bright light. Used this for beach shots and the picture turned out great. Brought down the exposure as advertised.

                    Fits snug on the lens but on my gimbal and copter setup, comes REALLY close to the ground. If it's not flat, it may scrape the ground during initilization.

                    It is a little heavy for the gimbal but I have yet to counterbalance it. I realize I may be damaging the gimbal but it's been fine so far (level horizon).

                      Ends jello in high light filming by slowing shutter speed.
                      Enhances color in blown out shots.

                      Learn how to counterbalance gimbal.

                      Vulnerable to scratching when gimbal initializes with Phantom two.

                      Should come with an inexpensive lens cap!!

                        I use this on my Hero3+ for UAV photography and it takes care of the bright-sunlight "shutter flutter" issue, as well as reducing the jello effect. Mounting seems a little insecure (but haven't lost it yet, even in high winds and straight-down shooting) and I wish it came with a lens cap.

                        Can not be used with some gimbal mounts.

                          Product works fine but must fit flush against the face of the GoPro otherwise the corners of your video will be blurred/rounded. Using the filter with a strap mount such as those found on the Good Luck Buy Gimbal will not work.
