Cinema Series – Filter 6-Pack – $149.99


For pilots who demand cinema-grade image quality, PolarPro’s Cinema Series™ line delivers clear and consistent optics.  The Cinema Series 6-Pack provide pilots with 6 of PolarPro’s top-of-the-line DJI Mavic Platinum filters to drop shutter speed to cinematic levels in nearly any lighting condition.  Included in the Cinema Series 6-Pack are 3 hybrid neutral density/polarizing filters (ND4/PL, ND8/PL, ND16/PL) and 3 neutral density filters (ND8, ND16, ND32) to cover the Mavic’s entire dynamic range.

PolarPro’s optical crown base glass featured in the Cinema Series filters provides a low refractive index, low reflectivity, and has precision anti-reflective coatings on both sides of the lens to reduce flaring.  Featuring PolarPro’s AirFrame™ aluminum frame construction, Mavic Cinema Series filters are precision-engineered for flawless performance with the Mavic gimbal.

The idea with these neutral density filters is to drop your shutter speed to around double that of your frame rate.  This theory is known as the 180-degree rule of shutter, and you can utilize this theory by using ND filters to smooth out your video to create vibrant and consistent cinematic content.

Cinema Series – Vivid Collection – Filter 3-Pack – $79.99

The Vivid Collection Filter 3-Pack is also part of PolarPro’s Cinema Series line, featuring the highest grade glass and coatings on the market to deliver clear and consistent optics.

Built with PolarPro’s AirFrame™ construction, Cinema Series filters feature aircraft grade aluminum frames thin enough to pass gimbal initialization and light enough to enable smooth gimbal operation from startup to shutdown.

The Cinema Series Vivid Collection features the same hybrid neutral density/polarizing filters (ND4/PL, ND8/PL, ND16/PL ) featured in the Cinema Series 6-Pack.  These hybrid ND/PL filters are especially useful when filming over water, snow and other reflective landscapes.  In these conditions, the polarizing aspect of these filters reduce glare and increases color saturation, creating vibrant cinematic compositions.

The ND4/PL filter reduces camera shutter speed by 2 stops and helps polarize light, most often used when filming at dusk or dawn, or on cloudy days when the Mavic’s framerate is around 1/250th.

The perfect filter for partly cloudy days, the ND8/PL knocks down shutter speed by 3 stops, ideal in conditions where the Mavic’s framerate is around 1/500th.

A go-to filter when Mavic is shooting around 1/1000th, the ND16/PL reduces shutter speed by 4 stops and polarizes the scene for capturing vivid colors on bright sunny days.

Each of the Vivid filters can be adjusted during installation to maximize the polarization effect.  Adjustment is simple and quick, and PolarPro offers step by step instructions that’ll spare you from any confusion about how and when to utilize the filters featured in the Vivid Collection.

Katana-DJI Mavic Platinum Cinema Tray – $49.99

Ever want to use your DJI Mavic Platinum as a handheld camera?  PolarPro’s Katana tray system enables you to use your Mavic as a cinematic ground camera for every-day filming.  Katana allows you to harness the power of the Mavic gimbal camera for handheld filming in tight places, no-fly and quiet zones, or nearly any improvised scene on the ground.

Katana allows you to travel light by enabling you to use the Mavic like a DSLR, so you can leave your other cameras and gear at home, using the Mavic platform to capture both stellar aerial shots and smooth handheld footage.  Using just the Mavic for your project lets you match your shots easier in post production, streamlining workflow and reducing your camera workload.

Featuring a soft touch, non-slip rubber coating, the Katana harness fits comfortably in your hands.  PolarPro’s glass-filled nylon frame construction ensures the tray is rock solid to secure your Mavic, but also light enough for smooth panning and follow-cam operation.

Optimize your Mavic Platinum to its full potential with Katana, creating unique video content for next-level productions that feature shots framed both from air and from the ground, for an immersive cinematic experience.

PolarPro DJI Mavic Platinum Phone Mount – $29.99


The PolarPro Phone Mount allows you to quickly attach your phone to the Mavic remote in an easy to view location, enabling pilots to leave their phone in a protective case while flying.  The Phone Mount will mount up to an iPhone7 Plus (with a slim case) onto the Mavic remote.

A 10-inch cable (or longer) is needed to connect the Mavic remote to your phone.  Constructed out of PolarPro’s durable glass-filled nylon, our Phone Mount will keep your phone securely locked onto the Mavic remote, and it’s quick to remove when you’re done flying.  The Phone Mount is also foldable for easy portability.

PolarPro DJI Mavic Platinum Hood – $19.99

Engineered for the DJI Mavic Platinum and Mavic Pro, the PolarPro Mavic Hood helps reduce lens flaring and excess light entering the camera from above the lens, and also adds a layer of protection for the camera and gimbal in the event of hard landings.

The lightweight design weighs only 5.13 grams, adding minimal weight to the Mavic, and is engineered not to get in the frame of your photos or videos (when not flying in sport mode).

Compatible with all of PolarPro’s filters, the Mavic Gimbal Lock and can be left on during storage and transit for convenience and a little extra protection.  Designed with a secure snap-on attachment, the Mavic Hood is simple and quick to install and remove.

Shell-DJI Mavic Platinum Case – $29.99


PolarPro’s  Mavic Shell is designed to carry the Mavic Platinum/Pro in any backpack or bag.  The custom molded hard-shell case contours the Mavic enabling you to transport it on the outside of a bag as well, without taking up excess space.

The hard-shell construction provides a bit more protection than PolarPro’s Mavic Soft Case for more rugged adventures.  Constructed with injection molded glass-filled nylon and features a rubber finish for a no-slip grip.

PolarPro DJI Mavic Platinum Gimbal Lock – $19.99







The PolarPro Gimbal Lock for the DJI Mavic camera is a replacement for the stock lock that DJI provides.  PolarPro’s Gimbal Lock adds a lens cover section to protect your camera and filter during transit. And unlike the DJI’s clear stock lock, PolarPro’s Gimbal Lock is black, making it easy to see to remind pilots to remove before startup.

For pilots needing to replace a lost stock lock or increase lens protection during transport, the PolarPro Gimbal Lock is a smart option to protect your camera and gimbal.

PolarPro DJI Mavic Platinum Landing Gear – $19.99


The PolarPro Mavic Landing Gear provides a wider, more stable stance for your Mavic.  Each gear quickly and securely presses onto the Mavic legs for easy installation and removal.

The Landing Gear raises the Mavic up 1.5-inches providing more clearance for the camera and gimbal, keeping your drone away from dust, dirt, and sand, which is especially useful when taking off or landing on uneven terrain.  Constructed out of glass-filled nylon, the legs are durable and rigid, keeping the Mavic stable during turbulent take-offs and landings, and adds a layer of protection in the event of emergency landings.

PolarPro DJI Mavic Platinum Remote Lock – $24.99


The PolarPro Remote Lock is compatible with both the DJI Mavic and DJI Spark controller. The Remote Lock securely press-fits over the control thumbsticks ensuring they are protected and do not move during transit.  The press-fit design makes it quick and easy to install so that you’re up and running in no time.

Constructed out of durable and rigid glass-filled nylon, with a rubber over-mold where the remote lock attaches to the thumbsticks, the PolarPro Remote Lock ensures your remote arrives to your destination safely so you’re ready to navigate the skies.

Aurora-Cinematic Color Presets-Mavic – $29.99

DroneTrekker-Full Size Mavic / DSLR Backpack – $119.99

Feature-packed to meet the demands of the traveling drone pilot, the Drone Trekker padded backpack is a savvy alternative to lugging around your Mavic Hard Case.  The Drone Trekker will safely store your Mavic Platinum or Pro while you travel, with plenty of extra space for your drone batteries, remote, charge cables, filters and other sensitive camera gear.
