■Action Camera Under Water Accessories
Get Wider, Get Closer Even Underwater
While an action camera delivers ultra wide angle to capture unique realistic scene, angle of view underwater narrows down dramatically due to different refraction ratio between air and water.
For example, when GoPro® HERO4/HERO3+ Black/HERO3 Black is submerged, angle of view will narrow down to 94°making it difficult to benefit action camera's ultra wide angle imaging. Also subjects in close range (within approx. 60cm/2ft in theory for HERO4/HERO3+/HERO3) are out of focus since majority of action cameras is a deep focus camera (fixed focal length) which prevents it from using for underwater macro imaging.
The INON "UFL-G140 SD" underwater semi-fisheye conversion lens provides nearly same wide coverage as using action camera standalone on land to enjoy capturing wild marine scene.
The INON "UCL-G165 SD" underwater wide close-up lens enables you to shoot subject from close range of the lens to capture the subject larger in a frame.
360° Panorama Video
[Underwater 360°panoramic movie with UFL-G140 SD]

Underwater 360°panoramic movie with UFL-G140 SD by Makoto Hirose/SeaPics Japan. Six GoPro® cameras with INON UFL-G140 SD lenses are mounted on a customized mount called "rig". The movie is created by stitching all clips by using specific editing application for 360°panoramic movie. Without INON UFL-G140 SD, it is not possible to create such a natural panoramic movie as angle of view of GoPro® camera underwater is not as wide as on land showing up seams between clips. You can move viewpoint anywhere you like by dragging your mouse over the movie.
