This Polar Pro Red Underwater Filter is a snap-on filter that is compatible with the GoPro HERO3 Dive Housing. The red color-correction filter is specifically designed to be used in tropical and blue-colored waters from 10-65' deep. The red coloring balances the overwhelming blue cast that is caused by the water in order to provide increased vibrancy and a more natural-looking white balance.

The filter is constructed from durable optical acrylic for increased protection and maintained image sharpness. The snap-on design also allows quick installation and removal of the filter while underwater.

        Used for Scuba diving

        Comments about Polar Pro Red Underwater Snap-On Filter for GoPro HERO3 Dive Housing:

        Product worked great for my GoPro Hero3. It works best when you are below 20 ft and when the sun is behind you under water. If the sun is in front of you or you are looking up to the surface, you will get a red hue to the image. It also does not work well if you are at 80ft or it is dark the added filter just cuts down on clarity. I think it worked really well between 20-60ft in blue water. Because the gopro does not have a LCD screen, I would pop the filter off and on throughout the dive so I would get shots with and without the filter. The only real negative I had with this filter is it does lock on to the camera very well and can come off (you need to tie it to the camera). You can overcome this lack of snapping in place by holding it with the edge of your finger. It was worth the price.

          This filter was easy to take on and off, fits securely, and most importently it improved the quality of my videos a great deal. You just need to take it off underwater to get all of the bubbles out.

          Scratched almost immediately and then cracked. I was still able to use it for the remainder of our dive trip, but this is a piece of junk. Buy something better. Very disappointed.

            Using this product is a snap. Colors are closer to reality at recreational depths. The storage bag is perfect and useful to keep scratches from happening after the dives. The price is very reasonable for the purchase of a backup.

                  I bought this filter to use in Key West, and it was a great choice. It made video at 60' pop and even worked for shallow diving. About the only place it washed out red was above water. My only complaint is that there's nowhere to put it if you're not using it.

                        The good news is this lens does give the red hue that is missing from the ocean shots. The bad news is the lens is not water tight so drops caught between the lens and the filter show up in the picture and ruin the shot. . After a while we just stopped using it.

                            I was amazed at the cost of this little snap-on piece of plastic once I saw it. On the positive side, it definitely improves the color quality of underwater photos. On the negative side, the snap-on attachment is relatively loose. I looked down multiple times and noted the filter partly dislodged from the housing in spite of gentle handling.
                            Satisfaction on this one part is definitely hindered by the number of accessories I've had to buy for the GoPro. For someone venturing into photography, they've made things much more difficult than necessary.

                              Comments about Polar Pro Red Underwater Snap-On Filter for GoPro HERO3 Dive Housing:

                              While the GoPro Hero and it's underwater housing are rated (quite usefully) to 197 feet, don't bother taking them under water at all without this filter. But make sure you monitor it constantly for bubbles and smudges, as the Hero's extreme wide angle view (and resulting depth of field) make anything on or under the filter readily apparent in the final image. Since the GoPro offers no viewfinder under water, you won't see the aberations until you're reviewing the images later. So keep an eye on the filter and remove any bubbles or smudges that develop.
