SAVED!!!I just received my gopro hd hero camera back from ragecams, dennis was really helpful in helping me select the right lens for my needs, i went with the 4mm & its working great and no more fish eye effect, bending corners of the video, or distortion, rage cams did it in 1 day and shipped it back to me fast, life is good!! Dennis told me the camera has been modified so i can now change lenses without taking the camera apart also and macro focus, whatever that meant LOL, so i did some research on macro focus. but not sure i need a different lens. He also said hero3 was coming out before xmas, and he was gonna give me a smoking deal, so i think i may sell me hero2 if the hero3 is gonna be a major upgrade to the hd2, in the mean time back to filming my craziness! I did a search and found the 4mm lens doing a macro focus that i though was really neat on a green grasshopper and gave me some kool ideas check this out.
