Which filters do you need for your Mavic 2 Pro Drone?
- ND-Filter: It is the most popular filter for drones. With the neutral density filter, drone recordings are evenly darkened for optimal image quality.
- CPL-Filter: reduction of reflections on non-metallic surfaces . These reflections occur, for example, on glass or the water surface. In addition, the contrasts of the image recordings are increased by a PL filter.
- UV-Filter: Ultraviolet light is filtered out , which can cause a blue cast . This is already included with the Mavic 2 Pro drone.
- Graduated Filter: Evens out contrast differences between sky and ground.
Mavic 2 Pro Drone ND Filter
Filters are generally used to create or reduce an effect. The neutral density filter (abbreviation: ND filter) achieves an even darkening of the image . This effect is comparable to sunglasses. Neutral density filters are made of glass or plastic and are screwed or plugged in front of the lens.
Neutral density filter when photographing with drones, including the Mavic 2Pro
- DJI ND4 Filter: Passes 1/4 of the incoming light, Reduces the light by 2 stops
- DJI ND8 Filter: Passes 1/8th of the incoming light, Reduces the light by 3 stops
- DJI ND16 Filter: Passes 1/16th of the incoming light, Reduces the light by 4 stops
- DJI ND32 Filter: Passes 1/32 of the incoming light, Reduces the light by 5 stops
- DJI ND64 Filter: Passes 1/64th of the incoming light, Reduces the light by 6 stops
The higher the number, the darker the ND filter. The higher the number, the less light gets through. This means that a higher ND number allows longer exposures.
There are now also hybrid filters , which are a combination of a polarizing filter and a neutral density filter . Hybrid filters for camera drones combine the advantages of the CPL and ND filters. Light reflections are minimized and the image is evenly exposed.
Filter Sets for Mavic 2 Pro
Depending on the time of day and the shooting situation, there is sometimes more and sometimes less light. That is why the ND filter for drones is usually available in a set with different strengths . Combining multiple filters creates great shots. Included in the filter set are ND8, ND16, ND32 and ND64, which are the most commonly used ND filters for drones.
ND filters reduce the light that hits the sensor. With Kase's DJI Mavic Filter Kit, there's leeway in adjusting shutter speed and light sensitivity . Depending on the lighting situation, the appropriate neutral density filter can be selected. The ND filter sets for drones and multicopters can produce clear images on cloudy days as well as on very sunny days.
ND Filter Comparison
ND4 Filter Mavic

|ND16 Filter Mavic||In normal light conditions with no clouds in the sky, incoming daylight is minimized by 4 stops|
|ND32 Filter Mavic||Reduces light penetration on bright, sunny days|
|ND64 Filter Mavic||The light incidence is reduced by 6 stops on very sunny days or in snow and water|

Why do I need an ND filter for the DJI Mavic 2 Pro?
The DJI Mavic Pro 2 is equipped with a manual iris . In addition to the exposure time and the ISO value, another setting can be made. The maximum aperture of the Mavic Pro is f/2.8 and the minimum aperture is f/11.
If the aperture is wide open , the depth of field is shallow and only the focus point has optimum sharpness. On the other hand, with a closed aperture, a large depth of field is achieved. However, the overall sharpness decreases. The solution for optimal sharpness and exposure is an ND filter.
Accessories for drones
Despite the manual aperture of the Mavic Pro 2, an ND filter set is indispensable. Various camera filters can be used for photographing and filming with drones . Find out more details about useful accessories for the DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone:
