The all new Flip3.1 - A complete filter and lens system for GoPro Hero3


New multiple filters for perfect color!

As hardcore GoPro users, we discovered that capturing the best underwater color requires the use of multiple filters. After hundreds of hours of testing, we've perfected a multi-filter system and integrated it into our world renowned FLIP design. The all new Backscatter FLIP3.1 gives you multiple filters at the flip of one finger. Optimal color has never been so easy! Watch sample video below to see the multi-filter system in action.



A complete filter and lens system for GoPro Hero3

The FLIP3.1 System has the same professional craftsmanship of our previous models, and now features the all new TOP FLIP and SHALLOW, DIVE, and DEEP filter options. The FLIP3.1 offers the best color and most rugged design of any filter on the market.

  • Aircraft grade anodized aluminum construction
  • Easy to use flip mechanism for one finger on / off control
  • Simple installation with rugged clamp-on design
  • Unobstructed view of front LCD display
  • Easy front camera button access with thick gloves
  • Open the camera housing without removing filter
  • Fumble-free flip design means you'll never loose a filter
  • No vignetting in any underwater shooting mode
  • Includes DIVE filter optimized for diving between 20 and 50 feet
  • Optional TOP FLIP mechanism allows use of additional SHALLOW and DEEP filters
  • SHALLOW, DIVE, and DEEP filters can be used with either side or Top Flip
  • 55mm threaded mount provides the ultimate filter solution; easily add our +10 close-up lens, polarizer, split neutral density, or any other filter to your GoPro for topside or underwater use


The Backscatter Flip3.1 is only compatible with the GoPro Hero3, Hero3+ & Hero4 series cameras
If you have a GoPro Hero1 or Hero2 camera, please see the Backscatter Flip2 Filter for GoPro Dive Housing.







Snap lock a lens or filter with just one finger
The hinged design of the Backscatter Flip3.1 offers the ultimate solution for above and below water shooting. Other designs use internal gel filters that require you to break the factory sealed lens and can't be removed for above water shooting. Other press-on filters can be removed, but are easily lost or damaged and frequently require multiple hands to install. Filters on the Backscatter Flip3.1 can be flipped out of the way with just one finger and lock into on / off positions with a positive snap.





Optional Top Flip for SHALLOW and DEEP filters
A series of top mounted flip lenses and filters can be added to the Backscatter Flip3.1. Choose from SHALLOW, DEEP, and GREEN WATER filters, as well as a universal 55mm threaded mount to add any lens or filter to your GoPro Hero3. Viva creativity!



Why is our all new Flip3.1 color formula the best? - Countless hours of in-water testing!
We've taken our world renowned GoPro Flip2 filter design and made it even better. The Backscatter test team has spent months testing exciting new filter formulas in a variety of real world conditions around the globe. While it's possible for a manufacturer to select a filter formula by the numbers or a few test dives in one location, we know only an elaborate battery of controlled tests will produce the ultimate GoPro filter. Here's why...



"Blue water" is a moving target

Blue water comes in many flavors around the world. From the gin clear waters of the Bahamas to the blue-green waters of Indonesia and Papua New Guinea, each region has its own signature color. Add the effects of weather, tides, shallow depths, and deep depths to these regional variations and you end up with a very broad definition of "blue water." The Backscatter test team has shot countless hours of footage in all conditions around the globe to redefine the ultimate universal blue water filter formulas.



Not all GoPro cameras are created equal

We discovered early on that individual GoPro Hero1 and Hero2 cameras have a different color bias underwater. One Hero2 camera might shift yellow and another Hero2 might shift green. The same is true with the Hero3. The Backscatter test team has gone to extraordinary lengths to evaluate multiple copies of both the Hero2 and Hero3 cameras in every situation with our new protype designs. We're confident our tweaked and re-tweaked formulas will not only best match "typical blue water conditions" but also harmonize with the variations in GoPro cameras.



The result - the best GoPro filters available

We didn't go over our R&D budget and timeline just to make the best filters for our customers. The team here at Backscatter have demanded the best filters for our personal shooting as well. We're confident that you'll agree the new Flip3.1, Top Flip, SHALLOW, DIVE, and DEEP filters are well worth the wait. Most importantly, you'll get the best color out of your GoPro investment regardless of the blue water you find on your next dive.



New Scratch Resistant Material

The FLIP3.1 filter material is resistant to scratches. Most filter damage occurs during travel to and from the dive site. Youll discover that most accidental scratches will not show up in your videos. Acrylic polish such as Novus can be used to buff out any unsightly scratches.

55mm Threaded Adapter for Complete Flexibility
In addition to our custom filters, we are also offering a 55mm adapter which will allow you to mount any threaded filter to the Flip3.1 frame or Top Flip. This is perfect for those critical topside applications requiring a polarizer or split neutral density filter. The 55mm adapter is backward compatible with the original Flip3 frame via the Top Flip accessory. The 55mm adapter is backward compatible with the original Flip3 frame via the Top Flip accessory and can be mounted on top or side positions with the Flip3.1.



Green water filter - Now Available!
Don't worry cold water friends! We have a new green water filter that can be swapped for the side flip blue water filter. You'll be able to enjoy the combination of green water color correction and a top mounted macro lens in the kelp forests and lakes many of us call home.
