This is a polarizer filter for the GoPro Standard 40m Housing. It will work with GoPro Hero3, Hero3+ and Hero4 cameras, so long as they are in the Standard Housing which is the one with no visible screws in the lens bevel:
If your housing does not look like the one above, and you can see screws in the lens bevel, then you have the Dive Housing and you will need the GoPro Dive Housing Polarizer instead.
It does not matter whether you have the Hero3, Hero3+, or Hero4 camera, it's the housing that matters.
This filter is for filming in bright conditions near snow or water and reduces glare and prevents overexposure.
This newest version of the polarizer filter features a brand new glass filter, which has better optics, and is even stronger than the last edition. Also, they beefed up the frame and over molded the glass to increase durability even more.
This polarizer filter is of benefit pretty much whenever you are filming outside. As long as its not very cloudy and dark, the polarizer reduces unwanted reflections and cleans up the video quite nicely. Sometimes the polarizer is almost necessary, especially when filming on bright days in the snow, or near water. The polarizer also increases colour saturation, making colours look even more vibrant. You can also slide it on when shooting in the car to remove glare off the windshield, dashboard, and the road. Its a very helpful accessory for the GoPro and is super easy to slide on and slide off.

In normal daylight conditions, this filter really brings out the beautiful normal colours and warmth that we see ourselves.
