I am looking for a good filter mount for a Hero7. I intend to use a CP filter and sometimes an ND on top of that.
I am trying to source an adaptor that will position the filters as close as possible to the lens (to minimise vignetting) and a good interference fit.

Any suggestions would be great.

Not right now. The filter I will source from Tiffen or another reputable make rather than cheap Chinese resin filters. It really boils down to finding a decent adaptor that keeps any filter as close to the original lens as possible to minimise possible vignetting.There isn't really a lot out there as far as guides or YouTube videos go. Most seem to be tailored to instructing what CP and ND filter do rather than the practicalities/limitations of use with a GoPro. I'm quite surprised just how little 'technical' filter information is out there considering the popularity of these little cams.

TIffen Hauppauge Long Island N.Y. U.S.A. Best of luck with them, Nothing bad. I do the research decide if it's really worth the while on an Action camera, the hero 7 you can slip off the lens protector, that you know, but the Hero 8 Good luck, polarpro made one, others might follow.

Ifti has a channel of reviews, totally understand you're not interested in peoples reviews, you want actual hands on filters. If a real camera store Like Online B & H photos closed on Saturdays 39th st, 9th Avenue NYC U.S.A. does not have it then I have no idea who else,

Neewer is one company Tellisen is another, Let the members come on and chime in that said Be safe stay strong.

I am based in the UK and there is no shortage of decent glass filters. I am looking for a review but one that covers the actual practicalities and features of a 52mm adaptor rather than focussing on why its a good idea to use a filter. How does it attach? Does it stay put? Does it cause vignette and when? What material is it? Does it have a grub screw to secure it in place and does the screw damage the camera? etc.
At the moment I am probably going to buy half a dozen different options and review them mysef.
