Hero8 + Rollcage + PolarProND filter + WG2X gimbal

[ New ]
Hello all,
Recently bought a Hero8. Very happy so far with footage, hypersmooth 2.0 very nice etc.

Bought some Nd filters by PolarPro for the summer.

I now want a wearable gimbal.

The WG2X is my target. When it was built, Hero8 was not on the market, so they released a £10 adaptor to accommodate the new shape.

I use the rollcage. I do so because I want to protect the camera much as possible while stil using ND filters.

It was a choice between freewell filters + Ulanzi cage, or Rollcage + Polar Pro NDs.

The NDs fit inside the official rollcage.

Why did I buy Rollcage + PolarPro over Freewell+Ulanzi cage? I simply predicted nd16 would not be high enough for bright summer sun, and since Freewell only made up to nd16, I went with PolarPro (who go up to 32).

Problem is.....

FeiyuTech WG2X + their official Hero8 adaptor will not fit a Hero8+rollcage.

The rollcage adds about 5mm at least all around the camera.

Does anyone know if there are any other companies making gimbal hero adaptors?

anything out there which can be opened up further?


The alternative would be dlto completely backtrack; well the PolarProND set + rollcage, and instead, buy PolarPro's magnetic, front-attached ND filters. (I'd rather not have to do this for obvious reasons).
