Remove Fisheye on hero 3 black

Hero 3 Black, just bought 2nd hand.

Anyone have any advise on removing the fisheye effect on videos please?

I'm only using the camera to record the work I'm doing on my 1935 Austin Seven car.

Re: Remove Fisheye on hero 3 black

Here is a list of free video editors.
VSDC on Windows- http://www.videosoftdev.com/free-video-editor/download.
DaVinci Resolve https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/davinciresolve

VideoProc https://www.videoproc.com/
HitFilmExpress https://hitfilm.com/express
ShotCut https://shotcut.org/download/
Lightworks http://www.lwks.com/
Avidemux http://avidemux.sourceforge.net/
Blender https://www.blender.org/download/
EZvid http://www.ezvid.com/download
VirtualDub http://www.virtualdub.org/
Fusion https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/fusion/motiongraphics

You want to look up lens distortion or lens correction to find solutions for your editor. You should be able to find your answers on YouTube or Google.

Adobe Premier has GoPro distortion correction built in so it's as simple as dragging and dropping the effect onto the video clip.

Re: Remove Fisheye on hero 3 black

HitFilm Express and DaVinci Resolve would be the first two I look at.  There are plenty of YouTube videos available to show you how to correct the lens distortion.
