Video: New Flip 3.1 Filter
By Joseph Tepper, August 19, 2013 @ 09:00 AM (EST)

As more and more divers are divers are adding GoPros to their photography equipment list, there’s an increasing demand for quality accessories.

The folks over at Backscatter are meeting this need with their specially designed Flip filters. The trend continued this weekend when they announced the new Flip 3.1—which offers more flexibility and ease in switching between filters.

In addition to the traditional side flip, the 3.1 features a “Top Flip” that allows you to flip between filters easily. While the standard filter is optimized for most diving, Backscatter has released additional filter options for different depths. The Shallow filter is optimized for 5-20 feet, the Dive filter, which is the "standard" filter is optimized between 20-50 feet and Deep filter is meant to be used below 50 feet.

The company put these new abilities to the test in a recently released video. And the results are pretty impressive…
