FINALLY!…..I found the solution to the crappy underwater focus problem the GoPro has. It’s all in the underwater housing the camera comes with(due to the fisheye type lens). I just purchased my flat lens housing that fixes the problem of out of focus underwater video and photos. I came across a website called EYEOFMINE.COM, which had the solution I was looking for, the following is from the actual website:
“Standard version ($79): We’ve permanently attached a flat lens to the GoPro underwater housing to get razor sharp video and stills underwater and on land. * Ideally you would use your existing housing for land and this housing for underwater use. Best video setting is 1080p and 720p video with this housing. You can also use stills and 960p, but there is a little bit of vignetting at the far corners. Focus is from 8” to infinity. We are selling the COMPLETE housing. All you do is add camera and start shootn’.
This flat lens housing presure tested to 100 feet (30 meter)”
The housing was featured on this years shark week during the show “Into the Shark Bite”.
Here is a link to a video that the guys did after the show talking about the flat lens by EYEOFMINE.COM.
