WEDDING VIDEO FAQ'S

WHICH PACKAGE SHOULD I CHOOSE?

WHAT IS INCLUDED?

We know that planning your wedding is probably one of the most daunting, stressful things you will ever do!

We've compiled our most frequently asked questions all in one place so you can rest assured that you know exactly what you're getting yourself into when it comes to memories of your special day.

  • What is the difference between the Hero 5/6 Black 'Basic' and the Hero 5/6 'Naked' GDome?
    The main difference between the two GDomes is the ability to view the front screen of your GoPro whilst taking selfies. The 'Naked' GDome has a front viewing window to maintain visibility through to the front screen on your camera. The 'Basic' GDome does not have a front viewing window, therefore you lose the function of the front screen on your camera. However, it is important to remember that all GDome's maintain visibility to the rear touch screen on your camera. Still confused? Contact us!
  • What is the difference between the Hero 5/6 Black 'Basic/Naked' and the Hero 5/6 'Lens On' GDome?
    The 'Basic' and the 'Naked' GDome's involve undoing the front lens protector on your GoPro and re-attaching your GoPro to the already fitted lens protector secured inside in the GDome. The 'Lens On' GDome comes with a supplied 'Super Suit' or External Housing already attached to the GDome. Unlike the 'Basic' and the 'Naked' you do not need to undo the front lens protector on your GoPro, you simply open the 'Super Suit' and slide your GoPro inside. Removal is a simple as re-opening the 'Super Suit' and removing your GoPro. The first few times will be a bit tight, but the housing will loosedn over time. The 'Lens On' housing or 'Super Suit' also greatly improves your GoPro's waterproof rating from 10m up to 40m depth which is especially useful for divers/sea break photographers as it also helps stop sand and grit getting caught in the nooks and crannies of your GoPro.

  • How deep can I go with my GDome?
    All GDome's are pressure tested to 40m, however, your GoPro will determine the overall waterproof rating of your setup. If using a 'Basic' or 'Naked' GDome, your GoPro will be in its natural state which is only capable of going to a depth of 10m. If using a 'Lens On, Hero 4/3+/3 or Session' GDome, your GoPro will be secured inside the 'Super Suit' or Housing which is capable of reaching a depth of 40m.
  • How do I keep water droplets off the dome lens and out of my shots?
    We like to cover our GDome in dishwashing liquid, rinse it with fresh water and then repeat that three times. The dishwashing liquid will repel the water droplets and allow to capture those sick action shots droplet free! We've also been told that 'Rain-X' (available from any auto/car detailing store) works a treat too!
  • Which mode is best for my GoPro whilst using the GDome?
    For photos, we like to use the burst mode, typically 30/3 (30 photos in 3 seconds), 12MP with wide angle and that works like a treat! For more fast paced shots, you could use 30/1 (30 photos in 1 second) to ensure you don't miss a thing! For video, if you are filming high speed activites always try to shoot with high frame rates 1080p/60 FPS. For slower activites, you can shoot in a higher resolution with a lower frame rate (2.7K/30 FPS.
  • Ahhh, I've just scratched my dome! Do I have to buy a whole new setup?"
    Luckily, the answer is no! If you mistakenly scratch your dome, simply purchase a replacement dome, attach it to your backplate using the tools provided when you first purchased your GDome and you'll be back outside having fun in no time!
