Today, Polar Pro Filters, a manufacturer of professional-grade GoPro® accessories for the action sports, outdoor and diving communities, announced the immediate retail availability of two new, recently-crowdfunded, additions to its accessories lineup. Following a recent Kickstarter campaign, which realized 145% of its initial funding goal, Polar Pro is now shipping its PowerPole battery-integrated extension pole and Proview smartphone mounts.
While Polar Pro Filters got its start manufacturing high-quality snap on lenses and filters for GoPro cameras, the company now offers a series of filters for GoPro Hero3, Hero3+, and the new HERO 4 models. Its namesake filters are sold individually or in use-specific packages including its Above Water Pack (with neutral density and polarizer filters, and accessory macro lens) as well as its Underwater Pack (with red and magenta filters for underwater color correction, and a polarizer for glare reduction).
With the completion of its successful Kickstarter campaign, Polar Pro has now added two new accessories to its growing lineup, including:
- Polar Pro PowerPole: The first battery-integrated GoPro extension pole, PowerPole’s durable yet light-weight all-aluminum alloy construction extends from 17-30 inches to get users closer to the action to find new shooting perspectives. The PowerPole’s internal 5200mAh Lithium batteries offer a huge advancement over the camera’s notoriously short battery life by enabling up to 10 hours of filming on a single charge. Additionally, the PowerPole’s dual USB ports (with splash proof guards) can take on additional accessories or charge up USB-powered devices at the end of a long day of shooting. The PowerPole is available for $129.99 (direct) and ships immediately.
- Polar Pro Proview: A dual-purpose protective case and GoPro mount for current generation smartphones, the Proview not only helps stabilize hand-held filming but positions the GoPro app right at the user’s fingertips allowing them to easily frame shots and access the app-based touch screen camera controls. When not shooting videos, the Proview also includes with a second mount-free top section to easily morph into a sleek traditional phone case for everyday use. Polar Pro is to continuing to expand Proview compatibility but currently offers models to accommodate iPhone 5/5s/6 & Samsung Galaxy 5s.
