OPTION 1A - FLAT LENS HOUSING - HD Hero
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. There will be NO vignetting at these resolutions at all. 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 pressure tested to 100 feet (30 meters) .**
Order the version 1 flat lens using glue - limited supply for $59!
New Version 2 using ORings instead of glue ($79)

Yes this is actually underwater and it's from video!
With stills and 960p you will get slight vignetting on the corners. Can be easily cropped out:
The acrylic flat lens is hand-glued onto the housing, so it may not look pretty, but you’ll get they shots you want.
Because this GoPro housing has been modified by Eye Of Mine, it is not covered under GoPro's warranty.**

*We don't recommend extensive use on land because the acrylic flat lens is susceptible to scratches and the flat lens does not
repel water or dirt as well as a curved lens.
** Eye Of Mine guarantees the standard housing to be leak-proof up to 100 feet, prof. up to 200 feet.
Professional version guaranteed to 180 feet. Limited to replacement of the flat lens housing only.
