The more we play with the GoProHD Hero2, the more we can see the difference in quality compared to the previous version. The higher quality and new options to change field of view also help make the HD Hero 2 a stand out sports camera. There is still one thing that falls short in quality and it’s the underwater footage due to the stock curved lens cover. Above are a few video frame grabs of what you’re images will look like with a stock GoPro HD Housing and one using a flat lens housing. In this case we’re testing the BlurFix Flat Lens Kit from Snake River Protoyping. Needless to say, if you plan to take your GoProHD underwater you should look into the many options for flat lens housings. Check out the video below to see some of the FOV options with and without the BlurFix, and also a comparison of image quality underwater.
[Anyone catch the T-Shirt Olivia was wearing?] Unlike other flat lens kits, the Blurfix design uses a threaded filter. This means you can also use color correction filters to remove the blue color cast underwater (since the GoPro doesn’t have white balance settings). Some of those filter options are available over at the Snake River Prototyping website.
