    So.... GoPro's.....

    Friend gave me a GoPro Hero last year, never really used it. Just realized it had a waterproof case, and got my evil mind thinking... MWAHAHAhahaha.... Stuck it in the tank *note: I was holding onto it with a pair of tongs, plannning on seting up a recording station when I get the chance to build one out of pvc, thoughts?* ANYWAYS, here is the video that resulted!

    *also: I know the tank has a CRAPTON of algae, going to get some SeaKlear Phosphate Remover soon to help with that*

    Mad Science you say? I just call it Fish Breeding !

    I think it based it's brightness levels on the exposure at the top before you lowered it into the tank. If you can have it underwater before you hit record, or at least have it pointing down, I think you'll see much better results. I have one and am planning to put it in my tank too!

    I have dived with it and even sent it to the bottom while fishing in Key West (filmed a big grouper checking it out). It will capture much brighter video than what yours did there. Pretty sure it got a shot of light in the sensor right at the beginning and closed the aperture on you.

    Well Joe, bad news, that didn't do it, now of course it COULD just be that my tank ain't bright worth anything but also, this is a fairly old model of the Hero GoPro's, so mabye it's just my version. I'll still keep playin around with it though!

    Go pro cameras have a lowlight mode. Atleast my model does. Try using that mode. It should help. Plus using Go Pro studio you can manually adjust exposure on your video, you can literally make night look like day.
