Polar Pro GoPro Magenta (Green Water Color Correction) Filter for Hero Cameras Review - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews
Great little item to help color trueness in underwater shots...both still and movie...make sure you clean lens as after the first dive, it produced a sticky residue that caused a haziness on the lighter colors...after taking it home and cleaning with "Goop" to remove tacky substance...it is clear again and works just fine...inexpensive way to add color clarity to your U/W shots.

Polar Pro GoPro Magenta (Green Water Color Correction) Filter for Hero Cameras:
The Aqua3 Magenta Filter for the GoPro Hero3 is our newest and most effective color correction formula yet. We have take all the data inputs from previous magenta filters and improved upon them even further. We bulked up the frame on the new Aqua series as well as over molded the glass for even more strength. The Aqua magenta filter color corrects flawlessly in green water from 8 to 65 feet deep.
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 had a chance to test the new filter down in San Diego on a day when the water was very green. The new magenta formula makes a huge difference in any green water, whether is be fresh water or salt water.
Why Do You Need a Magenta Filter? When diving red light loss causes the cameras white balance to freak out. When diving in green water, when the color red is taken out of the spectrum, the only color left is green! The leaves for some horrible looking lime green footage. Simply throw our magenta filter on there and it reduces excess green colors leaving behind naturally balanced colors.
Warranty 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.
