Thanks for posting, I find the fisheye a real pain in the ass so this sounds great. Does it keep the 140 degree FOV?
Anyone that has a GP hero; what is the fisheye effect like in comparison to the PV.

Not the Fov is similar to a 50mm lens on a 35mm camera I think, to video the movements are increased by viewing angle as an telephoto lens

I got one last week. It will probably be another week before I can test it since my Phantom 2 system hasn't shipped yet.

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.

I haven't forgotten about the pictures. Its just that its been pretty cloudy here in South Florida the last couple of days. If its sunny tomorrow I'll take shots with a standard GoPro and the modified one as well.

Its still cloudy here in South Florida but there was pretty even light today so I figured I'd give it a try.

- 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.

JDacal thanks for share, looks good and exploits the sensor surface, I want to put in the PV camera but is expensive US$ 490

Thanks again

Expensive? You can say that again!

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.
