How you handle the camera underwater while you dive GoPro is essential. It can be difficult. Fortunately, there are many accessories that would be able to help in this aspect.
One of which is the “perch” which reduces shocks and movements . “Selfies” are made easier and this is available without having to break the bank.
Dive GoPro, Diving Tips
Unlike normal cameras, the GoPro does not include a screen. One must capture images or videos “blindly” during the dive.
Fret not ! Being wide- angled. The GoPro would enable you to capture a larger frame ! Then, you would be able to crop the video into a good- sized frame viewed on the computer or TV screen.
Another important point to note , a red or purple filter. It is a necessity to dive GoPro more than five meters deep. In fact, we lose the red quickly below the surface. This happen when the light is crossing the water. As such the red cannot illuminate the background.
Thus ,the video rendering will be predominantly blue and green,which can be seen from the photo as shown below.
The costs for this filter range between 10 € and 120 €.
The filter can be attached directly to the lens underwater and looks like this .
Here is a little video to give you a better idea.
