Home > Product Info/Training > Flat lens Housings

We now have over 9,000 happy flat lens customers! 

All our flat lens housings work with the HD Hero & HD Hero2 cameras (not necessary for Hero3, 3+)

You have three options:
OPTION 1A  is a flat lens permanently attached to a normal HD housing         
OPTION 1B
is a flat lens permanently attached to GoPro WRIST housing (standard & pro versions)  
OPTION 2  is a flat lens permanently attached to the GoPro 3D housing (pro version only)

        
                                          
All 3 options use the SAME LENS so the quality is identical.

A customer returned his flat lens housing to us complaining it was all scratched and didn't know why.

We did some investigating and found this video:

GoPro Underwater Shark Experiment from Eric Cheng on Vimeo.

Of course we're kidding.  We thought this was such an amazing video, we asked for the housing back
so we could post pictures of it.  How often do you get a keepsake full of shark spit!  Thanks Eric!
Obviously, this video shows how rugged our flat lens housing is (GoPro get's some credit too). 
We may have to rename our housing to the Shark Denture Cam. Check out that close focus clarity.  5 inches?

 
 

                              


 

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) .**

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.**

Flat lens housing instruction manual (PDF)

*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.

OPTION 1B - FLAT LENS WRIST HOUSING standard and pro version- HD Hero


A video on how to keep the WRIST housing upright

NEW Underwater flat lens WRIST housing for HD Hero:   We permanently added a
flat lens to the GoPro wrist housing to give you razor sharp images and video underwater at 1080p and 720p. 
There will be NO vignetting at these resolutions at all.
Slight vignetting at 960 and stills.
Good to 100 feet (30 meters).  Will work on land too.  
This housing is NOT compatible with any other GoPro mount.

$79

Professional version ($99): Identical to the standard flat lens WRIST housing we sell, except we take extra
care in making these.  EACH and every professional flat lens housing is pressure tested
at 200 feet
(61 meters) for 1 hour. **   We've added a rubber ring around lens for added protection. 
We are selling the COMPLETE housing.  All you do is add camera and start shootn'.

Note: the GoPro housing itself is rated at 180 feet (60 meters), so 200 feet is right on the fringe for this GoPro housing.

Here's a wrist housing adapter we made to allow the housing to work on other GoPro Mounts.

OPTION 2 - 3D FLAT LENS HOUSING pro version - HD Hero

Currently shipping - limited quantities

3d flat lens housing


This is the GoPro 3D housing kit (complete GoPro kit) that we have modified with a flat lens to make it crystal clear underwater.  Preferred resolutions are 1080p and 720p where there is no vignetting at all.  960p and stills have slight vignetting that is easily fixed in editing.  We pressure test these housings at 200 feet for 1 hour.

This is an Eye Of Mine exclusive.         


       


 
 ** Replacement is limited to replacing the housing only. 

Eye Of Mine is not responsible for damage, injury or loss of equipment from the use of this housing.   Use at your own risk.  We recommend testing without the camera first at any significant depths.
