Fry's has set of Bower Sky Capture 4k filters for the DJI Mavic Pro. 4pc for $25 after you add them to cart. I'm new to the Mavic so I'm still learning myself how to utilize these filters. Seems like a good price compared to other filter sets.
  • Circular Polarizing Filter eliminates reflections and intensifies color saturation for added detail, all while retaining professional image quality
  • Achieve a more cinematic look with the Neutral Density Filter, designed to slow the Mavic's shutter speed to creatively blur moving subjects
  • Circular Polarizing Filter
  • Neutral Density 4 Filter
  • Neutral Density 8 Filter
  • Neutral Density 16 Filter
  • Protective Case with 4 Inner Pockets

Yes explain yourself and your experience with this product. Why would one choose polar pro or taco as opposed to these? Actually curious, not being a dick. Wink

not multi coated, scratches easy, the polarizer I had displayed non-uniform vignetting (not this drone one but Bower sells the same glass for DSLRs as well), the polarizer glass came unhinged from the metallic casing one day, just like that, the ND filter glass rattles within the casing - just overall poor workmanship and quality.

Appreciate that insight. Have you found another brand at a good price point?

I admit I haven't at this price point. Again, I am not conversant with Drone filter requirements because I don't have one. But the function of a filter is the same regardless of the device. You really need to purchase each of those filters separately - in the DSLR world, pricing also depends on the filter size. I would suggest Hoya, B+W, Tiffen - but they're not this cheap, you'll pay a lot more for each than this whole Bower package price. Remember its another glass medium you are placing in between the lens and the light source, which means its also a light modifier as there is a certain level of light absorption, so good glass is a must if Image quality is not a compromise for you. Thinner the Polarizer, the better chances of not vignetting. Good ND filters cost a lot as the gradation increases.

Again, perhaps am rambling here - but no, you won't find good quality filters at this price point. If there are, am not aware but I can vouch for these Bower ones being very sub-par.

Sounds good. Yeah the high end dslr manufacturers aren't producing filters for these pro-sumer drones. The end end ones come from polar pro. But it's hard to tell if they are any better than the mid or low end range of filters for the mavic since one, the mavic isn't even a year old yet, two, really drone aerial photography itself is relatively new (comparatively speaking) and three all of the reviewers on polar pro lenses on YouTube appear to have been given their lense kits free in exchange for a review and they aren't comparing them to other kits.
