GoPro-with-mod-lensAlthou I love the GoPro I also find it one of the biggest frustrations when shooting with it on the DJI Phantom 2 due to its fish eye lens effect.  So I bit the bullet and purchased another GoPro Hero 3 Black with a after market 5.4mm lens attached from Peau Productions.

This effectively gives you a 35mm lens equivalent of 29.97mm lens or a horizontal field of view reduced from the native GoPro’s 123 degrees to a narrow 66 degrees.  This effectively gives you a flat or distortion free image (useful for real estate videos/stills or anything else with straight vertical lines).

Am busy testing at the moment and hope to have a video review up with some examples very soon…so stay tuned.
