Nihao, Renaat and Aileen!We, Aileen & Renaat, are so happy with your comments. Our adrenaline level of stress is going normal now seeing the expected result in reality. Originally we ordered 150 sets and let keep the factory a stock of 150 sets, anxious to have a stock at home. As we did it for free, it would turn in a complete loss. Now … we mailed the factory to get their actual stock + 150 more. They will pay a small compensation, but not so important. The most important for us is being happy, you and we. We also want make a special note for all the fans who supported us at the creation of this set and encouragement during difficult moments, as there were !
A special note for this forum: one word; "thanks". All members are polite, positive thinking, we appreciate it very much !
Thinking back, when we became member at the DJI forum, we were very bad humor about service, no replies, and Chinese behavior solving problems. Now, we thanks DJI giving the opportunity to exchange between members ideas, but we also hope DJI will take a lesson that selling is not all, making your customers happy is more important on the long run. We also hope that world will appreciate that not all stuff is Chinese rubbish, they just need a final touch, what, I think we added successfully. All hands on deck, you can achieve wonderful results.
Thinking about future: I really think to let produce for the Inspire1, not a polarizer (as I found it really useless in practice) but a graduated ND3 (-1.5 stop) applied on a ND8 and ND16 with 1/3 of covering. It will solve the problem of too brights skies and get a harmonious exposure. The only problem is, as the filter is crewed on, to make the graduation horizontally. This issue I will treat with factory after the preparing of the second shipment.
Another idea I would like to discuss with you concerning the Phantom 3 pro: DJI is planning to make a ND2-ND16 set to push up on the vision camera. We have a very original idea, not existing in the world at all, for making something very exclusive and very high level. This idea would be possible to apply on the vision camera and in the future also on the Gopro with the same filters ! The rest we keep for private now, but I assure it will be very cute, surely for film makers ! So, some one who owns a Phantom 3 can help us privately to give some info ?? We are thankful for it, as technically it will not be easy, but we have trust in our factory.
Back now to our normal video work and fruit business (our 2 companies), and a final big kiss from my wife who is sooo happy and proud to have produced a quality Chinese product.
Cheers to all, Renaat.
ps: we regret not made marks of density on the filter frames, but your creativity about that will solve the problem. The factory is not used to print, as they mostly work in sub-contracts with western companies.
It's great to hear that there are so many positive comments about the filters from those receiving the first batch of NDs. It's apparent that you have helped to create an excellent product.
I'm also pleased that you listened to my suggestion for a set of ND graduated filters at ND8 and ND16 strength, and can't wait to order those when available. My further suggestion is to make them rotate, like a CP, and put a mark on the top of the ring for proper orientation. It means slightly higher weight, but well within the tolerances of the gimbal, I suspect.
As I am getting a P3Pro, I'm also excited about your proposed filter set for the P3.
Any word yet on when the second set of ND orders will be fulfilled? You mentioned that the factory had produced a second set of 150, and that you had asked for them.
