Review for the brand new Snake River Prototyping red filter for GoPro Dive Housing (underwater usage).
If you are fed up with having blue or green videos, just think about a filter.
Of course light is great but very expensive when the filter is a way to retrieve underwater colors !
This filter is a best seller and is very efficient for tropical waters, from 8 to 30 meters in good weather condition and sun.
This clip was made to review the new GoPro HD Hero 2. Underwater sequences was made with BlurFix housing, with URPro filters (Clear and SWCY).
The HD Hero 2 is more efficient for underwater purposes and at the end of the day, compared to original HD Hero.
Having a 170° wide angle mode is very useful in R7, and for sure, the sequences are a bit sharper than before.
For underwater usage, you absolutely need a modification to get sharp and clear images. The BlurFix may be the best housing modification for GoPro (HD 1 or 2) and offers the way to get several different filters for creativity or depending on conditions.
Compared to HD 1, the new Hero 2 has a different white balance for underwater videos. I had to correct the white balance in post production for some images.
