Letus AnamorphX Adapter for GoPro Hero 3+
Letus has announced a new anamorphic adapter for the GoPro Hero 3 and Hero 3+ cameras. The AnamorphX Adapter is a 1.33x anamorphic adapter that gives you the 2.39:1 aspect ratio to your 1080p footage when you de-squeeze the footage in post. Additionally, the adapter works with GoPros 4:3 SuperView footage to create a proper 16:9 frame without any further processing required in post.

When using the Letus AnamorphX-GP, the extra 33% (1.33x) field of view will create a true 16:9 image that compensates for the digital stretch. As a result, the GoPro in SuperView mode with  the Letus AnamorphX-GP yields a true 16:9 image! People (objects) on the edges of the frame will have a more normal aspect with reduced distortion*. You can use the 16:9 images in superview mode with the Letus AnamorphX-GP adapter as is. Superview mode will not need to be de-squeezed in post. It produces a true 16:9 aspect ratio with an extreme wide angle FOV.  -Letus

The adapter installs directly onto the GoPro Hero 3+ housing and maintains the waterproof properties. The Letus AnamorphX Adapter runs $199 and is expected to start shipping on January 31. More info here on Letus’ website.
