    Thanks! If I use the protective lens on GoPRo ...do I have to balance it with counterweights?

    I weighed mine today. It was 4g on my digi kitchen scales so I would round up to 5g as the previous poster mentioned. It was the first time I had connected up and used my H3-3D gimbal today and I didnt have to counter balance due to using the lens protector.

    BUT like I said, first time I used it today so Im maybe others have had different experiences but mine seemed to work fine with it on.

    This little lens protector and filter kit seems like a much better solution for adding neutral density filter to eliminate JELLO. Does the video image suffer any degraded quality by using these plastic neutral density inserts vs. glass?
