What is the Osmo Reflector Adapter, and how do I use it?

The Osmo Reflector Adapter is a specially designed band that can be used with the Osmo Fire Base & Reflector for Amazon Fire tablets in order to make the Amazon Fire HD 8, 10th Generation (released in 2020) compatible with Osmo.

To use the Reflector Adapter, please follow these steps: 

  1. Slide the Reflector Adapter band around one side of the red reflector for Fire tablets until it rests along the top of the reflector. The notch in the band should be facing the back of the reflector.
  2. Place the red reflector with the Reflector Adapter over the camera on the side of your Fire tablet.
  3. Place your Fire tablet in Landscape mode onto the Osmo Base with the camera and reflector side facing up.
