    Anybody had RageCams install the 5.4mm lens mod and if so your thoughts on the pros and cons.

    Thanks

    A buddy of mine has had it done to 2 of his GoPros and the thing shoots FREAKIN gorgeous.
    I'd go for it.

    I havent seen any comparison stills or video from the stock P2V cam and the ragecam mod. There are a ton of GoPro comparisons but I have yet to locate one comparing the P2V. The lens specs on the 5.4mm look great but, without an A/B comparison its hard to judge just how much better it will be considering the steep price tag of $500.

    Rage cams never lived up to the agreement. Not good!

    --The correction tools in GoPro Studio 2.0, removing the fisheye will twist the edge of the video & make it even worse. Every time you yaw your helicopter, it will make a very hard & narrow point of movement making the edge strange. That is the reason most customers replace the original with the 5.4 mm flat lens from RageCams."

    Irrespective of the back story this isn't the greatest moment in your business career, is it?
