    Has anyone found ND filters that fit the Inspire camera? At 24fps and 1/50 shutter the camera is severely overexposed. Changing the shutter for video at 24fps is not a good solution and creates all sorts of motion artifacts. Any help with filtration is appreciated.

    There is nothing yet. There are a few companies and individuals working on options though, so you can count on some being available soon. In the mean time, you could use a broken filter ring and cut out the thinest filter you can find and put it in the ring. I've done this with a GND for stills and video with great results. A professional photographer friend of mine did the actual cutting of the filter, so I can't speak to that process unfortunately. I do know he is working with a few different filter companies currently on solutions for the Inspire.

    We're working on a full set of ND filters to compensate that problem, along with transient filters.

    Thats good news! how long until you have those for sale? Are you guys also making an Inspire version of the "phantom grip" remote cover? What with the inspire knobs as well, you guys will be taking lots of our money soon haha

    the filter is new to us, i'll try to have some prototype here within 4~6 weeks. the biggest problem is to find a supplier that will not knock us off behind our back...it has happened so many times and there is really nothing we can do about it.

    now on the grip, we've been looking into a set of leather harness, inspired by the movie 50 shades of grey :)
    ok seriously, i'm a big fan of leather, veg tanned leather in particular. the one came w/ the kit is too easy to get tangled and don't look cool at all. now imagine john wayne gonna hang a remote on his chest how that harness would look...

    we got too much in our hands already and new ideas just keep on popping up, i'm so stoked!

    Very cool, keep us updated! if you need any testers, reviewers etc let me know! It's awesome that companies like you are constantly improving on accessories like this.
