When I first purchased my GoPro Hero HD it wasn’t long before I discovered a major flaw- all my underwater footage was blurry! This never happened with my Sanyo Xacti when shooting underwater and I was very confused about what was going on. As it turns out the curved lens distorts the video when shooting underwater. I checked on GoPro’s website and sure enough there is a mention of it in their FAQ. Technically GoPro only says the housing is waterproof and doesn’t actually market it as “underwater”, but they say they are developing a flat glass adapter for underwater use. Never-the-less I set out to find an existing solution and came across the Snake River Prototyping BlurFix.
Check out this aptly named documentary about the incredible journey wild salmon take to get back to their birth place to spawn. For these salmon, this is no ordinary journey thanks to man made dams that threaten the survival of future generations of these incredible fish.
