Pictures look pretty good at ground level. Definitely no fisheye. I'll try to take a few pictures tomorrow with it and post them. Also there are videos on you tube using that lens.

- These shots were taken using a GoPro3 Black with standard lens and a RageCam with the modified lens.
- Cameras were on a tripod and shot was triggered via the GoPro app.
- The day was overcast
- The shots were taken about 2:45 PM EST facing towards the East
- I focused the RageCam on the number "11" shown in this picture at a distance of 180 feet viewing it on a 55" Sony HD TV. Distance was measured with a Bosh GLR825 laser. The RageCam site suggests about 150 feet. I found that at the focus setting I received it from RageCam the "11" was blurry, so I refocused.
This picture lets you see were the "11" is located in the images to use for reference as you view the pictures:
These two pictures were taken with a GoPro 3 Black and RageCam set to "12MP WIDE".
I can only add 3 attachments so you can download the full resolution shots using this DropBox link, also the ones posted on the forum are only 1024 x 768 so very poor resolution:
You'll also find another set of shots taken at "7MP MED" setting there.
I haven't taken any aerial shots yet as I am still wating for my Phantom 2 to ship.

I ended up buying it with the camera, almost $1000. But I wanted to be able to switch cameras quickly, without having to do a lens change in the field.
