Inon Announces Compatibility of Lens Mount with GoPro HERO7 Black
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, October 28, 2018 @ 10:00 PM (EST)

Inon has announced that its existing lens mount for GoPro HERO5 and HERO 6 is compatible with the new HERO7 Black in GoPro’s Super Suit dive/extreme sport housing—though not with other new models in the series, e.g., HERO7 Silver, which don’t work with the housing.

The SD Front Mask makes it possible to mount Inon attachment lenses such as the UFL-G140 SD semi-fisheye conversion lens and the UCL-G165 SD wide close-up lens, as well as build full rigs by attaching various adapters and arms.

For more details, see the press release below. Contact your local dealer for pricing.
