SO WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF ADDING RIBCAGE TO YOUR GOPRO HERO 3+?
Less Distortion: As users of the camera are well aware, the GoPro features an extremely wide angle lens to try and accommodate most action sports scenarios. When filming, especially at the higher resolutions, this leaves the resulting image with an obvious ‘fish-eye’ distortion that can be undesirable to filmmakers. With the option to change lenses any filmmaker can get the look they want for their shots without being restricted.
Depth of Field and Manual Focus: The GoPro has a fixed focus lens, meaning everything is in focus from near to far. To achieve a more cinematic look many filmmakers wish to use a more shallow depth of field, creating a ‘bokeh’ or blurred background and foreground. By adding different lenses to the GoPro the user can now manually control the focus and F-stop to create the ideal look.
Zoom: The GoPro Hero3 and 3+ have no option to zoom, especially during filming. With a manual zoom or telephoto lens attached you can achieve sharp detail from a great distance, and perform zooming during filming.
Night Vision: The Ribcage mod kit removes the IR cut filter from the GoPro, allowing the user the option of filming with or without the filter. The benefit of this is, with the addition of an IR light source such as a battery powered IR LED panel, you get instant night vision! All you ghost hunters out there can film in complete darkness and still control multiple cameras with the WiFi remote!
Use Your Old SLR Lenses: How many of us have that old camera bag in the closet gathering dust? The optics and manual controls on most older SLR film camera lenses are excellent! Why not breathe new life into them by using them on your GoPro Hero3? With the proper adapter ring you can attach almost any popular brand of manual lens to our mod, including Canon, Nikon, Pentax and more!

Snake River Prototyping is proud to announce the most versatile BlurFix adapter for the GoPro to date! The new BlurFix3+ 55 is compatible with the GoPro Hero3+ standard housing and accepts 55 mm filters. We are happy to say that the BlurFix3+ is backwards compatible, so our customers can continue using their favorite filters from the Original BlurFix (Hero and Hero2) and the BlurFix3 SO (Hero3 slip over for the Hero3 Backpack Compatible Housing). This newest adapter will ship in two configurations:
• BlurFix3+ 55
• BlurFix3+ 55 with URPro CYD
The BlurFix3+ 55 integrates the best features of the original BlurFix (Hero and Hero2) and the BlurFix3 SO (Hero3 slip over). These features include the convenience of a slip-over adapter and the option to create a sealed space between the filter and housing lens. The BlurFix3+ 55 allows for wet filter operation just like the BlurFix3 SO, however, now you have the option of using one of the supplied o-rings to create a sealed space between the housing lens and the filter when used with standard 55 mm camera filters. The benefit of having the option of a sealed unit is that the user does not have to worry about water, snow, dust, or debris getting trapped between the housing and the filter! In addition to air, this design allows liquids to be sealed internally. Use of liquids such as alcohol sealed internally will ensure it doesn't freeze, and will eliminate any chance of condensation or fogging between lenses. This patent pending sealing mechanism creates a vacuum with air, or hydraulics with liquids, making a very secure hold on the adapter reducing the risk of accidental loss. A lanyard is included and an attachment point is located on the side of the adapter giving reassurance and convenience during use. When sealing the unit with air, one needs to be aware that it must be sealed in a dry, non-humid place or fogging may occur. We provide 3 different size o-rings for your convenience to seal with many filter manufacturers products. Not all filter manufacturers maintain the same spacing and dimensions. We hope to build a list of compatible filter types as we progress.
We designed this unit with divers in mind. Use without the front o-ring will expose two vent ports top and bottom allowing the cavity to purge creating a wet filter. These vents allow easy installation and removal both on land and underwater. The sealed method with air is not for use while diving, however the seal with liquid method may be used while diving. The sealed option of the BlurFix3+ 55 is perfect for snowboarding, skiing, wake boarding, surfing, humid environments, adverse weather conditions and so much more. We are proud to release this new BlurFix adapter as another first, further expanding the use of filters on your GoPro. We are excited to see what creative liquids our customers use for developing new effects.
In addition to the new BlurFix3+ 55mm adapter, we have a new accessory. The BlurFix3/3+ holder allows you to store the filter on a Tray or anything you can bolt a 1/4" bolt through with the provided thumb screws or 1/4-20 fasteners. The beauty behind this design is one side holds the BlurFix3 SO (compatible with the Hero3 standard housing) and the other side holds the BlurFix3+ (compatible with the new Hero3+ standard housing).
Introducing the Snake River Prototyping BlurFix3+ 55mm with URPro CYD (includes BlurFix3+ 55, URPro CYD, lanyard, rear o-ring, and 3 sizes of o-rings for the option of completely sealing the unit). The URPro CYD is not to be sealed, it is designed to be a "wet filter" having water on both sides.
