Think of it like this. When you buy a new TV and it's running at a at a higher frame rate, it looks weird. When you go to a movie, it looks awesome. Part of that has to do with the amount of motion blur that's being recorded and then show to you. The higher frame rate (ie, shorter shutter speeds) is showing you more crisper moments in time, but our brains are like "wtf that doesn't look normal". For drones, flying in full daylight, the amount of time their shutter needs to be open to capture the scene is small because the brightness of the sun is flooding light onto the sensor. In normal photography, you can slow this down with aperture, but, in full daylight, maybe using aperture is still letting too much light in (ie take a photo of a smaller point of time). The ND filter purposefully blocks the bright sun, so the shutter takes longer, which could add just the right amount of motion blur for the video to look like a movie, vs a soap opera. It's could neutral density because it blocks that like across all color bands (neutral) in the same way.

I've never used ND filters but I understand the logic for ND and the slower shuttle speeds that it enables, i.e the motion blur it adds makes video motion smoother. But I film landscapes with lots of slow motion, do you guys think it will smooth the video much in this scenario. I think maybe that it makes the most improvement in fast action footage?

I still don't understand ND filters and the relation with the shutter speeds and aperture fully, I guess I have a long way to go.....

ND filters are used in videos for stopping light when you want to shoot wide in a broad day light. You can't shoot at f/2 midday with 120fps if you don't have ND filter.

These filters are gradient. So perfect for landscapes. Ive been waiting for a price like this for these. Gradients have to be expensive. Freewell/skyreat/neweer can replicate basic nd filters. Not gradients

Wait, so are these for drones, or ordinary film cameras?

This deal is only for this specific drone, the DJI Mavic 2 Pro.

But there are undoubtedly gradient or ND filters for whatever camera you have.

I've learned 90% of my photography/videography knowledge from YouTube including ND use!
