If you read my review of the GoPro HD Hero2, you’ll have noted that I thought it strange that a company who touts their cameras as being capable of being used 60m underwater would produce a housing that wasn’t optimal for this purpose. The domed lens on their standard waterproof housing results in blurred video and photos while underwater due to the way the camera focuses (not unusable but not the best). This has lead to a market in third party flat lens add-ons that result in much clearer images underwater, such as the Blurfix. Well GoPro has finally released their own OEM Dive Housing.
“The Dive Housing’s flat glass lens allows for maximum photo and video sharpness underwater in all resolutions, free of vignetting.”
There’s no mention of availability of things like additional filters yet however.
Available from GoPro for $49.99.
