This is just a simple unboxing video of the DJI Goggles Racing Edition. We plan on making more advanced training and tutorial videos soon. We thought it would be best to split the videos up as not to have all the information crammed into one video.  Watch our YouTube unboxing video.

There are two versions of the DJI Goggles, the original version which are white and the racing edition which is black. The racing edition goggle have a few extra features and design enhancements. In the racing edition goggles DJI has redesigned the head band to make them a little more comfortable to wear as well as a redesigned face plate to make it fit a little nicer to the face and help prevent fogging of the goggles. The DJI Racing Edition Goggles also support non DJI drones such as analog racing drones. This is noticeable by the antenna that is not present on the original goggles. The racing edition goggles also supports viewing of 360 and VR panos shot on the various DJI Drones.

I opted to purchase the DJI Racing Edition goggles so I only need to carry one pair of goggles no matter if I wish to FPV with my DJI drone or with some smaller racing quads. As for DJI Drones the goggles work wirelessly with the Mavic Pro and variants such as the Mavic Pro Platinum via Ocusync. The DJI Goggles also work well with the DJI Spark, Mavic Air and the Phantom 4 series of drones via a wired connection.

Both versions of the goggles also support playback of any device that outputs HDMI. The goggles for example can be used to watch Netflix movies via an iPhone.

Like I stated this article is not a review of the goggles but I would like to add that I was extremely impressed when flying the Mavic Air with the DJI goggles. I have only had a few chances to get and fly with them but I really was amazing at how immersive it was. They are a little pricey but well worth the money in my opinion. There is not much more I am going to cover in this article but make sure you subscribe to our YouTube channel and bookmark our website for more detailed videos on how to use the DJI Goggles that we will be creating over the coming weeks.

Mavic Air ND Filters by Freewell Gear | What Are Drone ND Filters

Published

on

In this video we are taking a look at Freewell Gear’s ND filters for the DJI Mavic Air. If your new to drone cinematography you might be wondering what an ND filter is and why you would use them. ND stands for neutral density and in simplest terms it is just like a pair of sunglasses for your drone’s camera. There is a lot of confusion on what exactly an ND filter does, so let me clear it up a bit. An ND filter allows you to set the correct shutter speed on your drone’s camera to get the perfect amount of motion blur. There is a rule when trying to capture cinematic footage with your drone (180 Degree Rule). Basically the rule is that you want your shutter speed double what your frame rate is. For example if you are filming at 30 fps you would want your shutter speed at 60 (1/60th second). If you’re filming at 60 fps then you would want your shutter speed at 120 (1/120th second). This will give the perfect amount of motion blur that the eye and brain are comfortable with.

The problem with setting these low shutter speeds is that it lets in a lot of light and makes the video over exposed and blown out. This is where an ND Filter comes in (sunglasses). They allow you to set a low shutter speed and still have correct exposure.

Freewell gear sells ND filters for all the most popular drones including the DJI Spark, Mavic Air, Mavic Pro, Phantom Series and even your GoPro and Karma Drone. I have used the Freewell gear ND filters for several years for my GoPro and many drones and have always been pleased with the products. When it comes to ND filters they come in several levels ND4, ND8, ND16, ND32, ND64. They even have an ND 1000 for those times when you want to take long exposure photos with your DJI Mavic Air.

They also sell versions of their ND filters that are polarized. Setting polarization within the filter really helps cut out glare from water and can really make for a cleaner image, it also helps make the sky a little deeper blue. With Polarized ND filters they can only be used 90 degrees from the sun. The sun can not be in front or behind your drone. This does make lining up shots a little more difficult. If you just want quick and easy filters I would stick with ones that are not polarized.

Watch our video where I show ND filter installation instructions and a demonstration how ND filers work with the DJI Mavic Air.

Here are some screen caps from the test video. You can see side with no ND filter has no motion blur. This is okay for photos but undesirable for video. The side with the ND 4 filter installed has nice motion blur.
