Gopro2 and blurred underwater images

Hola,

i have two questions for you guys:

- how come the underwater images of my gopro are blurred? They look out of focus cause the lens....
Somebody suggested me some kind of little stickers/cushions to insert on the sides

- Is there a particular lens for the underwater shooting? COuld you link it to me please?

Re: Gopro2 and blurred underwater images

Yes Marcus, as Darren says, you need the dive housing for the GoPro Hero 2 HD. I have one and it made a big difference. The pads that go on the sides in the housing are anti-fogging inserts. I really haven't had much of a lens fogging issue, but I haven't had the camera really deep where the temp of the captured surface air would be cooled to condensation.

Good luck,
