Have you been eyeing the latest GoPro HERO9 Black and waiting impatiently for Backscatter to upgrade its FLIP8 filter system so it’s compatible with the shiny new action cam? Well, the wait is over! Yup, as it turns out, while the HERO9 is a whole lot chunkier than the HERO8, the mount is just the same: FLIP8 is compatible with both—as well as being backwards compatible with HERO5–7, of course.
So, whether you opt for the One Filter Kit with DIVE Filter, Two Filter Kit with SHALLOW & DIVE Filters, or Pro Package with SHALLOW & DIVE Filters & +15 MacroMate Mini Lens, the “FLIP8/9” has you covered whatever GoPro you own (or lust after).
As you can imagine, the somewhat unexpected compatibility has delighted Team Backscatter, who couldn’t resist having a bit of a laugh announcing the news—check out their fun video below:
