    I whipped this up last night.
    this allows you to attach a professional grade filter to a bare GoPro Hero3.
    hopefully it comes in handy for others.
    (I'll be shooting some example footage using a Polarizer this weekend)

    That is really well done !

    Snake River Prototyping, "snakeriverprototyping.com" the people who make the blurfix adapter you had on the waterproof housing just came out with an adapter for a naked Hero 3, for those who are not as well equipped, or just aren't do it yourself orientated !
    It's called the "Blurfix3 Micro 52" It allows you to use 52mm slimline filters. (Note: The one Gizmo3000 made is for a 55mm
    filter.)

    ah. interesting that they came out with one!
    I probably would have started off with a 52mm as well, but already had the 55mm that I had purchased with the original blur fix package
