Nflightcam Smartphone Propeller Filter
Our clip-on propeller filter fits a wide range of smartphones, even without removing the smartphone from its case. Designed for use INSIDE the aircraft only, this filter removes the propeller in 90% of the conditions encountered on a typical VFR flight.
HOW IT WORKS:
Smartphone image sensors are controlled by the amount of light they sense. In normal lighting conditions, the sensor runs faster than the propeller, causing distortion and odd lines in your video. Our filter modulates the amount of light entering the sensor and keeps the speed of the sensor slower than the propeller. Since the amount of light changes constantly and the filter does not, we designed the filter to completely remove the propeller in 90% of the conditions experienced in VFR flight. For best results, we recommend avoiding shots straight into the sun.
Clip the filter over your smartphone camera lens. Check the image on your smartphone screen to ensure the edges of the filter are not in the image. If so, readjust the clip.
AS A KIT:
If you are interested in buying the entire Smartphone Cockpit Kit instead, it includes this filter, a smartphone audio recording cable, and a suction cup mount for use inside the aircraft only. This includes everything you need to successfully record your flight with your smartphone!
Most smartphones. Please note that it does not cover all three lenses on the newest iPhones. In order to use it on the iPhone 11 Pro or iPhone 12 Pro, position the filter over the two lenses you will be using on that flight: Normal and Zoom if shooting a scene outside the plane, Normal and Wide-Angle if shooting the cockpit interior.
*Smartphone not included
Filter works fine...but the size of the filter does not appear to be large enough to cover the phone’s three lenses set up...it thus leaves a black circular area in the videos. I will be trying to see if I can some how adjust to correct this issue. But my feelin is that the unit needs to be enlarged to correct this issue
Hi, Gregory. You're right, the new iPhone Pro models have three lenses instead of two, and this filter only covers two lenses at a time. When I fly with my iPhone 11 Pro, I simply place it over the two lenses I want to use: Normal and Zoom if I'm shooting outside the plane, Normal and Wide-angle if I'm shooting the cockpit interior. Choosing which two lenses you are using means you won't see the filter edges in your shot like you would if trying to cover all three. If you find this physical adjustment annoying, we are more than happy to offer you a full refund. Just call us at 907-891-8607. Thanks!
Excellent! You all are the best.
I will always buy, and refer others, to this company, which I’ve found not only to have excellent, well-priced products, but also and importantly, to be remarkably customer-focussed.
