The GoPro camera has enabled you the possibilities of shooting anything and anywhere.  Now, with the Genus GoPro cage, your camera can get closer to the action than ever before. Mounting a GoPro Hero 3 camera has never been easier. The need to handle the toughest situations has driven us to design the strongest and most versatile GoPro camera housing in the world. Our new GoPro cage is the first product in the new line of Genus GoPro camera accessories and mounts.

Optional ND.09 Filter

The Genustech ND0.9 filter reduces light by 3 stops. 

This is advantageous with GoPro cameras as it tricks the camera into using a lower shutter speed.

Lower shutter speed reduces "Jello" effects common  in GoPro camera footage due , to the camera's rolling shutter, high shutter speed  and vibration. Vibration from propellers is a common problem in  quadcopter  and drone filming .

Reduced shutter speed also increases motion blur which will make your GoPro  look more cinematic.

The filter is 52mm in diameter so it easily screws into the 52mm threaded lens port on the Genus GoPro cage.

Optional Filter Step Rings

For filter sizes other than 52mm Genus makes a series of 52mm filter step rings
