The new frame allows the camera (with/without bacpac) to be placed in the frame without having to undo the main bolt. The previous version came with two different frames that would be selected for use depending on whether or not you were using a bacpac.
The frame tightens onto the camera housing via a QR latch at the top of unit. It is super easy to use and has been faultless.
The kit also comes with a lens protector which makes sense given that the frame doesn’t offer any real form of protection for the camera. All of the covers are accessible and you can even swap over a battery on the Hero 3 or Hero 3+ without removing the camera unit from the frame.
