Polar Pro Macro Lens
This Macro Lens snaps onto the waterproof Hero3 housing. Once on, the Macro lens can be swung open or closed. The macro lens will also lock back into place to stay out of the way while filming. This lens is made out of a super strong optical acrylic for sharp optics. This Macro lens allows you to capture razor sharp close-ups.
What is a Macro Lens?
A macro lens is designed to reduce the focal length of the GoPro Camera. This is great for capturing razor sharp close-ups. This is huge for GoPro users because this macro lens will give your Hero3 footage a completely new look. The standard wide angle shots can be repetitive, close up macro shots are a great way to add creative flare to your edits.
When to use:
This lens allows the camera to focus on subjects from 3 to 18 inches away from the camera lens. It also acts as a magnify glass pulling the center of the frame closer. You will not want the macro lens on when filming subjects further than 24 inches away from the camera lens.
