Will be snorkeling in St. Thomas...what lens filter would you recommend me buying...do i need the red lens filter and a polarized filter?...any help would be greatly appreciated.
I purchased this filter for my Hero 3 and it is seemingly too large to clip on to the lens casing. Is there a trick for attaching to a 3 or did I purchase the wrong item? Thanks.
I wish this product had a spec sheet so a customer can have the details: 1. frame construction materials? plastic? 2. lens - glass? 3. eyelet and tether included? 4. storage pouch and microfiber cleaning cloth included? 5. method of attachment to GoPro housing?
I saw a comment that you cant use a filter with the sidekick light , but then I saw a comment that made me think you can - can I have clarification please. I have go pro 3.
Hello Ann, if you added the: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-540/025213/Light---Motion-Dive-Arm-Mount-Kit.html to the camera then yes you would be able to use the filter. Since the light fits snug to the housing the filter would not fit correctly to the camera lens on the housing.
The Aqua3 Red Filter for the GoPro Hero3 is our newest and most effective color correction formula yet. We have take all the data inputs from previous red filters and improved upon them even further. The new Aqua Red filter produces deep blue hues and vibrant tropical reef colors which pop right off the screen. The Aqua red color corrects flawlessly in Tropical and Blue waters from 10 to 80 feet.
The New Aqua3 Red Filter also got a structural makeover by adding more protection to the glass lens, making it much more durable. The filter will securely slide onto the Hero3 waterproof housing and can be installed and removed in less than a second. The pressure fit is very snug but just in case a tether is included.
We got to play around with the GoPro Hero3 and our new red filter down in the Caribbean and were amazed with the results! The colors were great all the way from ten to eighty feet deep. Check out the video below and see what this filter can do to your Hero3 Footage!
Why Do You Need a Red Filter?
The point of a red filter is to compensate for red light loss which takes place under water. The reason being at about 10 feet there is no red light. The GoPro Hero3 ’s white balance is thrown off because of the red light loss causing the camera to record colors which are too blue or too green. A red filter compensates for the red light loss tricking the camera into recording natural colors the way you see them.
We took a lot of customer feedback, 3 months of heavy R&D, and 24 design revisions before releasing this product, it is built very well. However will gladly replace any defective products for 6 months from the date of purchase.
