MACROMATE MINI - The Ultimate GoPro Macro Lens


The design team at Backscatter spent more than a year perfecting the ultimate macro lens for GoPro. Watch this video to see razor sharp macro images and open a new door on your GoPro creativity.

The video above was shot with a GoPro Hero3 camera set to narrow video mode and a Macromate Mini lens. While the Macromate mini works in wide, medium, and narrow video modes, the narrow mode gives you the sharpest edges and the most stunning results.

Equally stunning results in photo mode

The sample photos below were taken with a GoPro Hero 3++ Black camera set to medium photo mode. The first image is without lens and the second is with the Macromate Mini.

Precision optical glass and aluminum construction

Don't be fooled by imitations. The Macromate Mini follows a 15 year product design of premium underwater optics and rugged construction. No plastic mounts to break and only the highest grade multi-element optics receive the FLIP and Macromate brand.

Add the Macromate Mini to your GoPro FLIP system

The Macromate Mini threads into the FLIP 55mm adapter. Go professional with a FLIP color correction filter and a MacroMate Mini at your fingertips. The worlds greatest and most versatile GoPro lens system has just evolved.

Fumble Free Flip Design Means You'll Never Lose Your Lens

When the action is happening, you don't want to be fumbling with lenses. Our world famous flip design gives you one finger access to color filters and lenses on the same dive without the fear of dropping a lens into the deep. The Macromate Mini threads securely to the aluminum 55mm flip adapter so you can always keep it handy. As you know, dive trips are expensive and require a lot of effort. The last thing you want to do is fumble or break gear on a once in a lifetime trip. The FLIP system and Macromate Mini will not let you down and more importantly it will revolutionize the way you use a GoPro underwater.
