GoFish Camera Kickstarter

I’ve always been a fan of underwater fishing footage. I even started making my own housing to put my GoPro in, but this little camera looks like a much better idea at a fraction of the cost of a GoPro.

With 275 backers and only 24 days ago, this project is very close to being fully funded. I have personally pledged money to this project and I am pumped to see the final product. If you want to fund this project and get your own GoFish Camera, visit Kickstarter!

The flat glass lens allows for maximum sharpness underwater in all resolutions, free of vingnetting and is waterproof to 60 meters.

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 it out and let me know what you think and if there’s something you’d like me to test for the upcoming full review.
