  • This newest version of our Neutral Density filter features a brand new glass filter with even better optics than its predecessor. The new glass is also stronger. In addition to the new glass, this filters frame got a complete overhaul by bulking it up with more material and over molding the glass for higher durability. The filter is very simple to install, just slide it right onto the Hero3+ waterproof housing.

    The most common application we use a Neutral Density filter for is when we want to make moving things blurred. The GoPro Hero3+ has a very high shutter speed so often times when moving fast, nothing is blurred, creating the illusion that you are not moving quickly. For example when in the car the neutral density filter will blur the pavement and it creates the illusion of speed. Another use for the neutral density filter is for aviation, remote control planes, and shooting with quadcopters. The filter reduces the jello-effect which happens when the camera is mounted to vehicles with high vibration.

    Possibly the simplest thing to use an ND filter for is just toning down bright scenes. If it is really bright out the Neutral Density filter will reduce some of the blown out highlights and leave you will an even more crisp video.

    What Does a Neutral Density Filter Do?
    A Neutral Density Filter or (ND Filter) is used to slow down the GoPro Camera's very high shutter speed. The ND filter essentially tricks the camera into thinking there is less light in front of it, so the camera's shutter speed is slowed down to compensate for the fake lower light levels. When the camera's shutter speed is slowed, the subjects in your video will have a slight blur motion. This means that everything that is moving in the frame will have a slight blur to it, and everything not moving, will still be in focus.

    Motorsports: An ND filter will completely transform your auto and motorcycle images and video. Usually the extremely fast GoPro shutter speed captures every little detail of the road, or the scenery, and gives the illusion that you are not moving at all. This Neutral Density filter will slow down the shutter speed and give the road and surroundings a smooth motion blur.

    Aviation: The GoPro is also notorious for the rolling shutter when filming from an airplane. Rolling shutter causes the aerial video to have a jello effect or wobble. The jello effect can easily be corrected with our ND filter. The ND filter will blur the prop and make smooth out your aerial videos.

    Quad Copter: In the last year filming with a quad copter has become very popular, Especially the DJI Phantom. The common issue with these is referred to as jello effect, caused by the Gopro's rolling shutter, high shutter speeds, and vibration. This neutral density filter is the easiest way to fix rolling shutter and smooth out your quad copter videos.
