Propeller filter for the GoPro Hero3+ allows you to fit the award winning propeller filter to GoPro's latest and greatest Hero3+ & Hero4. The billet aluminum bezel securely attaches to the Hero3+ with a thumb screw. Unlike previous design this system will allow for the use of different filters depending on your conditions.
The GoPro's image sensor is controlled by the amount of light it senses. In normal lighting conditions the sensor runs faster than the propeller causing distortion and odd lines in your video. 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 Nflightcam designed the filter to completely remove the propeller in 90% of the conditions experienced in VFR flight. For best results it is recommend avoiding shots straight into the sun.
On the plus side... The metal construction is high quality and using glass rather than plastic for the filter should reduce scratching. The ability to remove the filter and use the base for other standard 55mm filters is also a plus. The filter does eliminate the propeller distortion / rolling shutter effect. On the other side… Contrary to what is stated, the filter causes vignetting when using the new 1080 SuperView mode on the GoPro. When the set screw is tightened sufficiently to have a secure fit, the anodizing on the frame of the waterproof case gets scratched away and there are gouges left in the metal of the case frame after it is removed. The filter blocks a good portion of the wireless blue light making it difficult to see if the wireless is on or not. The filter blocks a portion of the LCD screen. The ND8 is appropriate for bright sun, but a little dark early or late day, or if it is cloudy.
