fusion underwater

Has anyone figured out a way to effectively stitch images that were taken underwater with a protective housing (which I have)?

Re: fusion underwater

Hi @lsd-discover

 

Though waterproof to 5m (16'), we do not recommend capturing footage with Fusion while submerged, as the camera utilizes spherical lenses.

Submerged video and photo footage will exhibit extreme distortion due to the properties of shooting through spherical lenses while underwater.  

 

Anyone who has tried their Fusion underwater?

How was it?

 

Thanks!

Ej

Re: fusion underwater

The only housing that I know of which will preserve the 360 capability underwater is the 360bubble. The 360bubble looks kind of like a fish bowl turned upside down with a seal over the opening.

The waterproof housing found on Amazon and a few other sites that is square and fits snugly over the Fusion camera provides protection, but does not allow for usable underwater filming.
