Backscatter has announced the release of new filter mounts and filters for the GoPro HERO3 camera. Part of their Flip filter family, the Flip 3.1 has a universal filter shape that allows it to be used with the existing side-hinged design, or with a new top-hinged version. Both side and top hinged mountings can be attached simultaneously, allowing the user to change filters underwater.
They are also now offering filters for Shallow (5 to 20 ft), Dive (20 to 50 ft) and Deep (50 ft plus). The filters are laser etched with their designation and depth use rating. In addition, Backscatter has released a 55mm threaded adaptor that fits with either mounting bracket, which allows the use of any 55mm threaded filter, and a dual handled arm and tray.
The new products are available now and there is trade-in and combo packages available on the new products.
