Bring your underwater filming to life with stunning vibrant colour!

 

The GoPro HD HERO and HERO2 cameras are fantastic for filming HD footage and have superb automatic colour
and brightness correction built in. However when filming underwater, the footage can still appear quite green in tone!
To make the most of your footage underwater, you will want to fit one of these red lens filters, to help
restore the colour balance, and make the footage a lot more vibrant!

 

A red filter helps when filming underwater because red is the first wavelength of light to disappear under water.
Often when filming underwater with a GoPro too much blue and green are present and the colors of bright coral
and stunning fish are lost.
You spent enough money on that tropical diving holiday, so these filters offer great value for money to allow you to
re-live and show your aquatic adventures just how you saw them in the first place!

 

The Red filter is designed for use underwater, and it will will work best when filming in depths of 10 to 65 feet.
It is not recommended to use a Red filter in less than 5 feet of water because there is still enough red light present,
so you will end up with everything looking slightly too red!

  • Red Filter Corrects Colours when filming underwater with your GoPro HD HERO or HERO2
  • Easy fitting to any standard GoPro Outer Housing, no tools required!
  • A Non-Permanent filter, can be removed when not required (ie. for filming in shallow water)
  • Recommended when filming underwater, at depths of 10 to 65 feet
  • 100% Authentic Polar Pro Quality Product
Compatible with:
  • Official GoPro HD Outer Housing (waterproof)
  • Official GoPro Wrist Housing
  • GoPro 3D HERO System

 

Please Note: While this filter is compatible with the GoPro Skeleton Housing, the housing is not waterproof - so not suitable for underwater filming!

 

INSTALLATION
To install the red filter, you'll need to remove your GoPro camera from the outer housing.
Then handling the filter carefully by the edges, place it into the lens bubble cavity, and tap the case gently until the filter is centred.
Then re-insert your GoPro camera and you are good to go!
Compatible with:
  • GoPro HD Housing / Outer Housing (AHDRH-001)
  • GoPro Wrist Housing (AHDWH-001)
  • GoPro 3D HERO System (AHD3D-001) (2x filters required)

 

Please Note: While this filter is compatible with the GoPro Skeleton Housing, the housing is not waterproof - so not suitable for underwater filming!

Here's Polar Pro's offical how-to video on fitting the Lens Filter:
(You can ignore the part about orienting/rotating the lens correctly to the light as this only applies to the polarising filter)
