Re: GoPro Brand Flat Lense

Im sorry guys but I just read this entire thread twice and I even took notes but im still lost. I was hoping to figure out what to set my go pro hero at before I go out. Im ordering a flat lens right away and will make sure to let the camera run out of the water before diving to get the white set right. But what should I set the camera to??? And I read a few people mentioning the cameras depth abilities... is there a max depth for the hero? I freedive and dont expect to ever get below 100ft? Thanks for the help!!!

1080p Medium is the best setting so far for U/W shooting.

Max depth on the camera is not relevant for freedive spearfishing really.

Re: GoPro Brand Flat Lense

Is it just that simple? 1080p medium? Is that a setting within the camera?

Yes... it is meant to be simple... Use the interface display to toggle through the multiple options available to you.

Re: GoPro Brand Flat Lense

Well that's awesome thank-you very much!!! Does it matter that its not the hero2? I'm going with the mako flat lens for now due to the cost of the one I like with the filter options. I just gotta figure out how I want to use it freediving. Obviously holding it is simplest. I wanted to mask mount it but there is no frame on my micromask.


Shit just looked it does matter I have the coded lcd

Oh, in that case you are working with something different. Read the instruction manual (http://www.epirbhire.com.au/GoPro%20...structions.PDF) and also reference this thread: http://goprouser.freeforums.org/stic...-use-t251.html

Go for 127 degree angle which is r5.
