The Polar Pro Hero8 SwitchBlade

For Hero8 with Protective Case

Check out our GoPro Hero 8 Underwater Review

Currently Unavailable


Product Overview:

The The Polar Pro Hero8 SwitchBlade is designed to be used with Hero8 Black and GoPro Hero8 Protective Housing. It is an innovative and unique interchangeable macro + red and magenta filters which allow you to capture creative close-ups and vibrant tropical colors. 

GoPro has always been designed with watersports in mind. Polar Pro really takes your camera to the next level by eliminating that hazy blue color you get from taking a camera deep underwater. The lack of blue underwater is caused by a lack of red light underwater, so all the filter does is bring it back. The magenta filter is great for divers in cold, green water. The macro lens perfect for capturing video of little critters on the reef.

The Polar Pro Hero8 SwitchBlade has some really nice features:

  • New glass macro features 5X power for tack sharp closeups 
  • Metal construction provides the most durability and strongest connection to date
  • Includes magenta, red, macro lens and case
  • Only fits the HERO8 camera when it's in the protective housing
