Good afternoon. I am looking to replace my go pro lens (fisheye) with a non fish eye lense. Ive got a suggestion of a peau, but im looking at my options as I want to make sure i can still use it for fishing, etc, not just for FPV.

Is there a lens that works well for all applications but gets rid of the fisheye lense?
Im technical, but ill need a tutorial as well... Or ill send it off and get it fixed :)
thanks
 
like reel :) fishing... head mounted.. or mounting biking, or skydiving... i know rrmccabe mentioned peau, but he also said that its not meant for action stuff like above.
 
Ryan, want me to do a hand held video with the Peau lens and send you the link? I don't think you will like it. Works great on tripod and hoping in gimbal. I am positive its going to suck in the fixed mount while you wait on your gimbal.
 
yeah if you want to take a little video, just walking or whatever that is cool.
Most people i think replace it with a $50 lens i just cant find it or the tutorial anymore ;0
 
The tutorial is the same regardless of the lens.

Here is install video.

Told ya. Looks great in tripod. But cant hold it by hand. I think on a helmut it would be bad. Hope the Solo gimbal is a good one.
 
i am still looking for a decent lense replacement for my hero 4 silver.... any ideas?
 
i did reach out for a friend request... $80 for a lens at a starting point is pretty stiff...
 
well, ive seen and heard plenty of people getting decent lenses for 25-40$, so its a bit stiff compared to that... overall, who knows :)

For what a Fishers price Camera? haha

I think about $85 is where they normally start. Peau gets little more money because they provide a 50 cent O ring with it. LOL

I think they are all the same brand. But since you use it for fishing and everything you are going to want one.
 
yeah i reached out to that guy with my needs, so hopefully he can hook me up
