Re: GoPro Hero vs Liquid Image Mask

I have the Blue H.D. Liquid image mask. Works awsome!! Only thing when your mask is on your head I get into kill mode and pan around too fast. But mounting your camera on your gun does not catch all the action and you dont want to point your gun at your friends while they shoot fish. For spearfishing the liquid image is not bulky and does not get in the way. You forget its even there.
Im thinking about selling my Liquid Image Camera if anyone is intrested. My wife got me the wide angle lens model so Im selling my Blue H.D. camera.Here is a video on youtube to see quality.

I have had a gopro for a while now and just got my liquid image mask in the mail thursday.
Here is the gigantic flaw with the gopro cameras when you want to shoot POV, drag.
The drag of that stupid little ****ing camera on your forehead when you are trying to punch dives over 60, 70, 80ft is just stupid. You can actually feel the drag and the wibble wobble when your moving fast totally kills your concentration and lowers your bottom times.
The new liquid image mask I got fits great and will be what I use from now on to film anything POV underwater. The gopro will still have its uses for shooting stuff above the water and probably gun mount stuff.
You are not mounting it correctly. You can make a neoprene hat and the camera goes on top of your head. It wont move at all and you cannot feel any drag. It will feel way better than a liquid image mask.

We shall see this coming week when I go to baja for 5 days of diving. I'll be doing plenty of dives over the 60ft mark and I'll let you know how the liquid image mask preforms.

Re: GoPro Hero vs Liquid Image Mask

The liquid image mask (New HD model) is the greatest invention since sliced bread.
Took so much incredible video with it and there are so many things that make the mask so much better to use than the gopro.

Post it up Kyle, I'm interested in one of those masks' too.

How about a pic of the mask itself?

Re: GoPro Hero vs Liquid Image Mask

Nice fish and video.

I still don't see how that is better than gopro video. I am just not seeing it. It looks the same as gopro. What am I missing?

The real difference is in the color and images not being distorted with the stock lens. I have a red filter on mine which really helps with the color at depth, that and the ease of use while diving I believe are the main advantages of the liquid image masks.
On the liquid image masks it has indicator lights that you can see when you are filming that tells you if the camera is on, what mode (video or camera) you are in, and if you are recording. there are also indicator beeps that lets you know when you do something too.
Just extremely functional and easy to use. The transition between my old mask and the liquid image was flawless and I was actually surprised by how low volume this model is.
