Eliminate annoying prop distortion for your GOPRO HERO5, HERO6, or HERO7!

All GoPro cameras are subject to the "rolling shutter effect," which creates annoying lines in the propeller when shooting video out the front window. With this redesigned filter from NFlightcam, simply attach it to the outside of the GoPro HERO5/6/7 camera and prop distortion disappears. Precision machined out of billet aluminum, the bezel securely affixes to the lens portion of the case and doesn’t block any of the camera’s buttons. The included filter is designed to remove the propeller lines in 90% of the conditions encountered on a typical VFR flight.

Best ND filter for propellor distortion
Works great, easy install on the HERO 7. Definitely helps with the prop distortion issues. As you can see, minimal prop.

GoPro filter
It’s just okay. It really does not cut out the prop. You still see some prop flutter. The one I have for my other GoPro is much better. A bit disappointed

Does the job well
A prop filter is a must-have. This works great with the Hero6 Black. The thing that impressed me the most is the carrying case for it. Protective...stylish. Nice job by the manufacturer.

Propeller filter attaching to camera.
The propeller filter doesn't stay attached to the camera. We had it fall off a few times.

Works as advertised but mount needs improvement
i used this on a GoPro Hero 5 to film video of a flight from inside a P-51 looking though the windscreen and propeller. The filter did successfully remove the otherwise strange prop image. The only problem is the mounting on the camera (as described in the prior review). The filter is held on to the camera by one small thumbscrew. You risk having it too loose and falling off or two tight and potentially damaging the camera. I know because I was adjusting the camera and the lens fell off in flight - twice. This did however demonstrate that it works when in place as the video with the filter on is much better than the video without the filter. I would be very cautious in using this and be prepared or even expect some issues with the filter falling off. I do think they need to come up with a better mounting solution.

Terrible Mount
I am using a GoPro Hero 5 Black, and was very disappointed with how this filter mounts to my camera. First off, this is a standard Neutral Density filter (ND8) with a 58mm thread. At this price, I did not expect anything of super-high quality, so no issue there. The major flaw however, is the mount. The mount is just a metal circle with a square hole cut in it that the GoPro lens slides into. It is fastened in place with a little screw that you have to tighten to the frame of the GoPro lens! That means if you tighten it too much, it will break your camera lens, and if you don't tighten it enough, it will fall off easily, particularly in a vibrating cockpit. I am now looking to find a better mount for the filter. Not usable as is in my opinion.

What brand is this filter?
Jon B on May 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Not sure, but it works great and has clear videos and pictures.
Does this filter fit the Hero 5 Session?
A shopper on Sep 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will fit the Hero 5 session.
I would like to purchase a GoPro Interior Kit for my Hero5. But, since this is not yet available, if I purchase the Hero5 Prop Filter (7827A) now, and since the Interior Kit is a more cost-effective way to go, could I receive credit toward the purchase of an Interior Kit (minus the filter) once that kit is available? I would like to use the filter now, but would also like to have the audio cable in the kit that is not yet available.
A shopper on Jan 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you purchase the Prop Filter and the kit were to become available with 30 days you could return it for an exchange for the interior kit. Gopro expects the audio cable to be available in the late spring.
I would expect that the interior kit would not be available prior to our 30 day return period.
Will this filter fit Hero4 ?
Elvis H on Jan 22, 2017
