Underwater is a much different story, with the camera needing the addition of a red filter to help correct your images from being all blue or all green. Every diver has noticed that the underwater environment is one of the monochromatic hues rather than distinct colors. Depending on your location, objects will take on a blue or green cast at the expense of all things yellow, orange, red, etc. This is because water acts as a filter of red light. The deeper you dive the more the red spectrum is filtered from the ambient light. You can, however, emphasize the existing red light by filtering out the blue spectrum with a red filter. ACTUAL GOPRO IMAGES WITHOUT FILTER & WITH FLIP7 FILTERWatch the video below to see the examples of the GoPro Camera WITHOUT our color correction filter and WITH our FLIP7 Color Correction System while diving at various depths:SOLUTION: FLIP7 COLOR CORRECTION SOLUTIONS As hardcore GoPro users, we discovered that capturing the best underwater color requires the use of multiple filters. After hundreds of hours of testing, we've perfected a multi-filter system and integrated it into our world-renowned FLIP design. The FLIP7 Filter System gives you multiple filters at the flip of one finger. Optimal color has never been so easy! The FLIP7 Filter System features a universal filter shape that works with either on the side or top position. The FLIP7 System features professional craftsmanship made of aircraft grade anodized aluminum. Get the FLIP7 Three Filter Kit for two filters on the same dive, and change them with a flip!

The custom +15 MACROMATE MINI design allows you to get within 3 inches of your subject so you can bring the tiny wonders you find to the big screen. If your favorite underwater subjects are about the size of a golf ball, the +15 MACROMATE MINI is about to become your best friend.SOLUTION: FLIP +10 CLOSE-UP & +15 MACROMATE MINI PROFESSIONAL GOPRO MACRO The Flip +10 Close-Up works great for shooting subjects sized from soccer balls down to golf balls that are roughly 8-12 inches from the camera. However, the +15 MACROMATE MINI brings your focus to about 3 inches allowing you to fill the frame with subjects as small as a golf ball. The video frames below were shot with a GoPro Hero3 in narrow video mode and illustrate the difference between the lenses. The scorpion fish head was about the size of a softball. The camera was moved closer to the subject to get the +15 MACROMATE MINI image. Our staff favorite macro configuration is a FLIP7 with both a +15 MACROMATE MINI and +10 Close-Up Lens so we're ready for all subjects.Use FLIP Macro Lenses for Stunning Macro Photography The sample photos below were taken with a GoPro Hero 3+ Black camera set to medium photo mode.

Use FLIP Macro Lenses to Bring Tiny Action to the Big Screen The video below was shot with a GoPro Hero3 camera set to narrow video mode and a +15 MACROMATE MINI lens. While the +15 MACROMATE MINI works in wide, medium, and narrow video modes, the narrow mode gives you the sharpest edges and the most stunning results. Watch this video to see how the +15 MACROMATE MINI has revolutionized GoPro for underwater. Fumble Free Flip Design Means You'll Never Lose Your Lens When the action is happening, you don't want to be fumbling with lenses. Our world famous flip design gives you one finger access to color filters and lenses on the same dive without the fear of dropping a lens into the deep.
