A couple weeks ago, I shot a video of crazy ants carrying away a dead lizard.
The video is very funny but technically it was crap...... out of focus.
It got me thinking, GoPro cameras are very good POV sports cameras but
they have no macro capability. So I went digging in my camera heap and
came up with this GoPro Frankenstein below. Funny thing, it works.
It's a very simple temporary set-up, I used two rubber bands to hold
a small macro lens in-front of the GoPro housing. You could use tape as well.
The little macro lens is part of a Bower Super Wide angle lens I got for
my Sony camcorders. The macro lens unscrews from the wide angle element.
There is a permentent way to put a macro lens on a GoPro but it requires
taking the GoPro apart and screwing in a new lens. So? Do you have an
old macro lens in your pile of photo gear? You may just have a way to get
cool macro shots with your GoPro.
