The BlurFix3™ SO Naked slips over the GoPro® Hero3 housing and allows you to mount 55 mm filters to your camera! This adapter is precision CND machined our of Delrin® which is more expensive than billet aluminum but flexible enough to allow for a precision clipping mechanize. This is the same frame that is sold with the “BlurFix3 SO Featuring the CYD Dome filter by URPRO” only without a dome filter.
Note: Camera and filters sold separtately. Not compatible with the Hero or Hero2.
BlurFix3 Micro 52
Now you can adapt 52 mm filters to your Hero3 camera when using your camera without it’s housing! This adapter was made for weight critical applications. You can mount a Neutral Density filter on your Hero3 while flying your quadcopter to minimize or eliminate the “Jello Effect”. This adapter is precision CNC machined out of Delrin(R) for ultimate durability.
ATTENTION: Installation and removal of the BlurFix3 Micro 52 are done at your own risk. Snake River Prototyping is not responsible for any damage to your camera that results from use of this product. Caution during installation and removal is advised.
The fit of the BlurFix3 Micro 52 varies slightly from camera to camera. If the desired fit is too loose, thin tape may be placed on the outside of the camera lens body to act as a shim. Use caution as damage to the lens body may occur.
DO NOT rotate the adapter as damage to the camera lens body may occur. Remove the adapter by pulling on it without rotating. Only press the BlurFix3 Micro 52 on as far as necessary so that it does not fall off during normal use.
BlurFix3 SO 55mm Filter Pack
All 55 mm filters are ultra-low profile to limit vignetting in all Hero3 video and camera modes. This filter and BlurFix3 SO Naked combination pack is ideal for general aviation, motorsports, snowsports, paragliding, fishing — any sport requiring the reduction of glare or the desire for forcing a slower GoPro® Hero3 shutter speed.
No vignetting observed in any mode below water using the ultra-low profile URPRO color-correction filters (CY, GR, and SWCY) available from SRP. There is vignetting in 960p WIDE video mode and photo mode above water with these filters, although they are intended for below water use only. The magnification factor under water removes the vignetting underwater in all modes. For above water use, the ultra-low profile Marumi CPL, ND4, and ND8 filters offered by SRP will have mechanical vignetting in 960p WIDE video mode and photo mode. Depending on the camera there is little or no vignetting in the WIDE WVGA, 720p, 1080p, and 1440p modes. Off-the-shelf 55 mm filters have not been tested by SRP, however, due to their high profile we anticipate that these filters vignette in all modes. We have tested the BlurFix3 SO on a variety of GoPro(R) Hero3 White, Silver, and Black cameras. The above observations were made using this small sample lot of cameras and Snake River Prototyping will make changes to our vignetting guidance, if necessary, after further testing and customer feedback.
