The PolarPro Osmo Action Collection is a range of precision ND filters and a polarizer for the DJI Osmo Action Camera.
The new range of filters for the DJI Osmo Action (watch our review here) camera have some interesting features. A magnetic hot swap system allows quick removal and change of filter without unthreading the base. They have 16-layers of various anti-reflective, anti-scratch, and anti-oil/water coatings. The filter system is splash proof but isn’t made to be used underwater.

ND filters and a polarizer are essential for any camera, especially for an action camera when you want to control exposure and record the best possible image quality under a variety of light conditions. Remember that these cameras have a fixed aperture, so there is no stopping down the iris to control light. ND filters allow you to control shutter speed in bright conditions.
