I recently received a total of 54 filters for the Mavic 2 Pro ($1,499) and Mavic 2 Zoom ($1,249) from 5 different manufacturers. (I had offers to test even more, but I had to turn them away.) I then set off to test these filters over the next several weeks and compare them on a total of 16 different metrics. I wanted to know who makes the best Mavic 2 filters. It is Polar Pro, Tiffen, or one of the several smaller Chinese accessory suppliers? The winners might surprise you.

Finally, Tiffen filters for your favorite drones, such as the DJI Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom, the Mavic Air, and the Inspire 2. We had been wondering when the well-established filter companies, such as Tiffen, would enter the prosumer drone market when we wrote this article here. Tiffen already had filters for the Phantom 4, but the other popular drones were left out. Well, that has been addressed now.

A lot of people have been wondering how you mount Neutral Density or ND filters on the DJI Mavic 2 Pro with its 1-inch sensor as the lens shape is almost square-like. This video on YouTube shows you how it’s done. You carefully hold onto the camera and turn the protective cover that is in front of the lens counter-clockwise and it will come off. Then you take the ND filter of your choice and gently put it on the camera and turn it clockwise and voila. You are all set to go out and get that smooth cinematic footage with shallow depth-of-field.
