The first time I tried one of the Freewell filters the Anafi failed the gimbal test! The good news is that was the only time it failed. Turns out I had not pushed the filter all the way in on one side. For the last week I’ve been flying the Anafi a lot and it hasn’t failed the test since.
Despite my intitial concerns, the filters also stay on in severe conditions. High winds. Rain. Bumping around in the back of a truck. They do leave a little black residue around the outer edge of the camera frame (not on the lens of course). I don’t clean that. I’ve been letting it build up a bit based on the theory that it will make each successive filter fit more and more snuggly.
My filters came in today. Here's some the box exterior and pics of the contents...
Yes.I would like to get a polarizer. Do the ND filters offer much advantage on the Anafi where the props are out of frame?
Toothpicks. That’s the kind of simple solution I was looking for. Perfect. (Still gonna keep an eye for a better case, but toothpicks will solve the most pressing issue with that darn case)Ya I was going to say the props have never been a issue with the Anafi.
The hard opening case I have to agree with you. What I ended up doing was taking a x-acto knife and trimming one of the two plastic latches that come together when you close the lid. It still has enough there to hold it closed and much easier to open. I also carry a couple of toothpicks in the case. Makes getting the filters in and out much easier.
