What Are Polarizing (PL) GoPro Filters?


Have you ever filmed something or taken a picture and you find really harsh glares or blown out white sky? That is exactly what polarizing filters (CPL) eliminate. Since light reflected from a non-metallic surface becomes polarized, these filters manage reflections and suppress glare form the surface of lakes or the sea, giving more contrast to the image.

 

What Are Neutral Density (ND) Filters?


Neutral density filters essentially work like sunglasses for your camera.

You might have realized that during sunny days GoPro produces images that seem too crispy. By applying the appropriate ND filter, photos and videos will look softer and smoother. You can achieve nice silky effects like the one shown on the waterfall photo:

Here you will find best ND filters for GoPro Hero 8 and 5 best ND filters for GoPro Hero 9.

 

What Are Underwater GoPro Filters?


Underwater filters are designed to bring back the colors that are often lost as we descend in the ocean, starting with red or magenta (the reason why underwater filters are of this color).

By bringing the red color tones back to your image, the camera will be able to select an accurate white balance and your image will reflect the natural underwater colors. Red filters are used in blue deep water (scuba diving), while magenta filters are optimized for green waters or snorkeling activities.
