With this simple trick/DIY-Hack you can turn your GoPro camera into a super-macro wide angle shooting machine! This really is one of the coolest things I’ve learned to do with the Hero 4 cameras.
The basic jist is that you’re going to take off the hood around the lens on the front of the camera. Then you’ll loosen the lens and spin it counter clockwise however far you need. For super macro shots I suggest going at least one full rotation counter clockwise. You can go even further if you want to literally touch your subject to the lens of the camera. At the end you’ll use some epoxy or super glue to glue only the hood to the lens. Be careful not to touch the glue on the actual glass of the lens (obviously). I didn’t show this last part of camera because I do like having it free. It’s optional.
