Underwater Gopro filming

Hi guys

just after any tips you guys found when filming underwater footage

I had my first crack at underwater filming yesterday and noticed that the housing began to fog up a bit on the inside after being under water a couple of times

it was pissing down with rain when I initially started so thinking maybe due to the warmer water as such compared to the temp out of the water

definitely something I want to do more of that's for sure

thanks in advance for any tips etc guys

Buy a rubber chamois and cut it into strips that fit both on the bottom and sides (inside) of the housing - these will absorb moisture.

If you can find those small flat moisture absorbers that would be even better - but the chamois will absorb more water god forbid any gets in.

Also you can treat the lense of the gopro and inside of the housing with a anti fog treatment.

I would also suggest that a external filter be used either pink or red depending on depth and clarity (green) of the water.
Find me in the real world...
