Tired of annoying “wagon wheel” frozen prop effects in your otherwise cool aviation videos? NFlightcam created a fix with this simple filter for the GoPro HERO9 camera. It compensates for what is technically called “rolling shutter effect.” GoPro camera sensors respond to the amount of light passing through the lens. Under most conditions, the sensor outspeeds propeller rpms, which causes those unsightly lines and distortion. Easily attached to the camera front, the filter “fools” the sensor by limiting the amount of light passing through the lens and keeping the shutter speed slower than the prop. As long as you don’t shoot directly into the sun, NFlightcam says, the prop distortion will not appear in 90% of VFR conditions (and face it: video of the inside of a cloud is about as exciting as a closeup of the steam rising from your pasta pot). Jet pilots need not apply.
