Backscatter Custom GoPro Underwater Housing with Glass lens


Our professional grade GoPro lens modification will allow you to capture unique land and underwater images.
  • The standard GoPro housing is blurry underwater.
  • We take the standard GoPro housing and hotrod it with our custom lens and filter mount.
  • Our custom glass lens is the only professional grade GoPro option with crisp underwater focus and no vignetting (corner shadows) in all 16:9 HD shooting modes.
  • Use creative filters (55mm) above and below water for special effects and exposure / color correction.
  • No funky glue, professionally installed, and pressure tested to 130 feet.
  • Unlock your creativity above and below the water with our filter options.
Recommended camera settings:
  • UNIQUE FILTER USE IN AIR (O-RING or 55mm FILTER MOUNT):
    • FILTER TYPES
      • Split / Graduated neutral density (correct overexposed sky exposures)
      • Polarizer (reduce reflections on water and glass, enhance cloud/sky contrast)
      • Macro / Close-up (unique close focus shots)
      • Other special effect / color correction filters

* Manufacturing variance in your GoPro Hero housing / camera / filter might cause shadowed corners. Hero camera is more forgiving than Hero 2 camera. Remove 55mm filter element from threaded ring and use o-ring mount if your filter ring is too thick and causes shadowed corners. Test your configuration before critical use.
** Final image must be cropped to 16:9 format to avoid shadowed corners
