Why do you need a macro lens?

Without corrective optics, GoPro HERO7, HERO6, HERO5, HERO4, HERO3+, HERO3 cameras can only focus to about 1-2 feet underwater. The custom +15 MacroMate Mini design allows you to get within 3 inches of your subject so you can bring the tiny wonders you find to the big screen. If your favorite underwater subjects are about the size of a golf ball, the +15 MacroMate Mini is about to become your best friend.

+15 MacroMate Mini vs. +10 Close-Up Lens

The FLIP +10 Close-Up Lens works great for shooting subjects sized from soccer balls down to golfballs that are roughly 6-12 inches from the camera. However, the +15 MacroMate Mini brings your focus to about 3 inches allowing you to fill the frame with subjects as small as a golfball. The video frames below were shot with a GoPro Hero3+ in narrow video mode and illustrate the difference between the lenses. The scorpion fish head was about the size of a softball. The camera was moved closer to the subject to get the +15 MacroMate Mini image. Our staff favorite macro configuration is a FLIP7 with both a +15 MacroMate Mini and +10 Close-Up Lens so we’re ready for all subjects.

No plastic parts to break – rugged aluminum construction

The FLIP7 filter system is machined from aircraft grade aluminum and is designed to withstand the bumps and grinds of professional underwater use. The aluminum FLIP7 frame clamps securely to your GoPro and a precision machined hinge keeps your lenses and filters flipping year after year. We’ve put the same attention to detail in the +15 MacroMate Mini and carve each lens ring from a solid block of aluminum.

Fumble free flip design means you’ll never lose your lens

When the action is happening, you don’t want to be fumbling with lenses. Our world famous flip design gives you one finger access to color filters and lenses on the same dive without the fear of dropping a lens into the deep. The +15 MacroMate Mini threads securely to the aluminum 55mm flip adapter so you can always keep it handy. As you know, dive trips are expensive and require a lot of effort. The last thing you want to do is fumble or break gear on a once in a lifetime trip. The FLIP system and +15 MacroMate Mini will not let you down and more importantly it will revolutionize the way you use a GoPro underwater.
