This awesome combo can save you few bucks from buying individual filters. The trio includes of Polarizer Filter, Neutral density, and Macro lens.

Polarizer filter helps you to capture better shots in a bright daylight, snowy environment or near the water shots where glare from the reflection of the light can ruin our awesome photo. The Polarizer filter can greatly reduce the glare and improve the saturation and contrast of the shots.

Neutral Density filter  this filter can help you to emphasize a fast moving motion. This is brilliant when you attach your GoPro to your car and make a road trip video or any fast paced action sports e.g. waterboarding and skiing. The filter helps to slow down the camera’s shutter speed to show the fast movement in your shot.

Macro Lens filter  this can make your small subject look bigger for a better close-up. The lens has a powerful 3.8x magnification and a focus distance of 3-8 inches.

  1. This makes me want to get a gopro! I’m not a traveller – at least not yet, but I’m hoping to do it someday. Will definitely consider getting a gopro since it has all of these cool accessories 🙂

  2. I’m relying on my Sony Xperia Z1 to capture my adventures — food, travel and events. I’m not a techie or gadget person and I’m not sure if I’ll be needing the GoPro.

  3. When I become a full time travel blogger I’d definitely get a good go pro and this seems like a really good option.

  4. These are great gadgets to have! These are really helpful in documenting one’s tracel experiences.I wish they were affordable.

  5. We always wanted a Go Pro too. Unfortunately, we still don’t have a budget for it. Thank you very much for giving a detailed post. We’ll definitely use this as reference when we have our own and we’ll make sure that if ever we buy, we buy it in the U.S. so we’ll save some money. By the way, I personally got hyped with the “Polar Pro Pro View Cellphone Mount.”

  6. I want a GoPro too. Nice to know that there are all these accessories to not only ensure battery life, but more important are proper filters for use in different settings to capture memories as best it could.

  7. Amazing gadgets, I do love documenting all my adventures, so this is very helpful and good ideas for me and to all with the same field of interest. Amazing blog

  8. Thank you so much for sharing. Actually I;m planning on buying a GoPro this year because I can have it in travels and water adventures.
