Polar Pro Filter's new GoPro Hero 3 Filter Accessory

People love their GoPro cameras. They are unique little cameras that have the ability to adapt to almost any shooting condition and make sure that you get the shot.

Choosing from one of their many pledge options starting at $20 USD will get you the Hero 3 Cube Filter of your choice, but you can pledge yourself all the way into an exclusive ski or dive trip with the staff of Polar Pro Filters (providing you feel like coughing up $5000. for the opportunity)

While their product pitch video won’t be winning any awards anytime soon, it does show a decent view on what a difference the filters can make in your next Hero 3 video. Go check out their Kickstarter page and show them some love if it seems like a product you’d like to get a hold of!

Gary Fong Announces Lens Lock Accessories

Expanding its GearGuard line of products past the Bag Lock and Body Lock (no, not dance moves), Gary Fong Inc. has announced the Lens Lock, an accessory for preventing lens theft.

The Lens Lock is available for Canon and Nikon lenses, and retails for $30. The cable with combination lock is an additional $10.
