Bring your underwater filming to life with stunning vibrant colour & razor sharp close-ups!


The GoPro HERO3 Waterproof Housing is a fantastic bit of kit, but the glass plate is completely clear
so has no fixes for colour balancing. Items close to the lens are often fuzzy and slightly out of focus.


This is hands down the best GoPro Accessory for Scuba Divers. This combo includes a glass red filter,
and a macro lens that can be flipped on or off while filming. It will completely transform what your GoPro
can do under water. You will not only get the best color correction available on the market, you will be able
to capture razor sharp reef and fish close-ups with the macro lens.
This macro lens is considered to be a light powered macro lens for focusing on subjects from 8 to 18 inches away.


This Red Macro Combo snaps onto the waterproof Hero3 housing. Once on, the Macro lens can be swung open or closed.
The macro lens will also lock back into place to stay out of the way while filming.
The combo has a glass red filter for professional grade optics as well as a macro lens for razor sharp close-ups.


This red filter is designed for colour correction in blue or tropical water. Simply pop the filter on around 10 feet below the
surface and be amazed. The GoPro’s automatic white balance has trouble with red light loss - this red filter compensates
for red light loss allowing you to capture those vibrant reef colours. So pick up a premium Macro / Red Combo Filter before
your next dive and show your friends how vibrant those bright reef colours were!
(For green/freshwater, you should take a look at the Magenta Glass Filters below)


Simply swing the macro lens over the front of the filter when you wish to film close-up objects.
You will want to use your red filter when filming at depths of 10 to 80 feet.
Above 10 feet of water there is still plenty of red light so you will not need a filter.


This snap-on filter is absolutely perfect for those who mix shallow and deep diving. You can simply pop the lens filter
on and off depending on the water conditions at the time, which is not possible with other filters that are installed inside the
lens housing. This also means you don't need any tools to fit the lens, and no modification of your Waterproof Housing is required!
