Go For Focus Flat lens for Go Pro HD Hero 2 and Hero Cameras
A simple procedure of replacing the dome lens with a Go For Focus lens is done by removing the 6 screws with a jewelers screwdriver and then installing the Flat "Go For Focus" lens. Two types are available, the plastic version and the newly introduced Glass lens.
A video on replacement of the lens including the use of the Distance O ring spacer needed for the Go Pro Hero2 is on this GoForFocus video The Glass Go For Focus lens is slightly dearer and if vunerable to abrasion is less likely to scratch.
In addition to the lenses is a low cost Red Filter which is able to be located inside either lens to replace the loss of the colour red in depths of water greater than 10 metres
