Designed for the Phantom 4 Camera, it replaces the UV filter that is pre-installed on the camera. Helps reduce the amount of light entering the lens to reduce glare and lower the Exposure Value.
Especially useful when shooting video to reduce shutter speed to double the frame-rate to introduce cinematic motion blur.
Put more simply, the ND8 filter helps avoid overexposed photos.
The ND8 filter passes through 1/8 of the incoming light. This is equal to a 3-stop filter strength.
