no I'm installing it myself.
Watching the videos online, there's nothing particularly scary about it, you just need to take your time.
Famous last words :-)


Can you kindly provide a link to the video you mentioned in your post?


My Vision camera is fitted with new lens and on it way back to me. I will let everyone know the results of the upgrade. :)

Rage cams 5.4mm flat lens

Here's a video I did Sunday after re-focusing my lens. There's no software stabilization and pretty windy day. Phantom 2 / GoPro 3 Black / RageCam lens / ND Filter installed.

Im not seeing the difference between this lens and just using 'narrow' on the Go Pro 3. Is there a significant difference?

I still get some fisheye on narrow. The advantage for me is being able to get a very wide shot with no fisheye at all.

looks good on the video

couple of questions…
1. where did you set the focus to?
and
2. the little bit of glass on the back of the lens - did you remove this, or leave it on?

i'm a bit confused - mind you that doesn't take much - LOL

They recommend that you focus on something 150 ft away. Luckily for me, across the parking lot is a sign at exactly that distance with the number 11 on it. So I hooked up to my 55" HD TV, opened my front door and focused on that 11 until it looked as good as I could get it. Probably could get it even better, but you have to spend some time on it since the lens isn't easy to turn, so its hard to hit the exact sweet spot. Hooking up to a large HDMI TV is key, since it gives you the best method for adjusting the focus.

I have one of those laser measuring devices which helped a lot in determining the 150' distance. It doesn't have to be exact though.
Not sure about what little bit of glass you mean. They installed mine. I know they ship some with a protective plastic sleeve on the back, not sure if that's what you mean. My IR lens cam with that, if that's what you mean it should come off. The lens has glass on both the front and back, that you would not remove.
