    On my GoPro I get these myterious spots once I shot underwater. I have practiced above ground and no spots. During the end of the dive the spots went away. Please help... Is there a way to enhance them so they are not there?

    I can't see the video either but a wild guess is condensation perhaps? Do you use moisture munchers?

    Since the video won't work for me either -- do you have a red filter on your housing? It could be air bubbles.

    Yes I use the fog inserts and the SRP filters.

    It did go away half way through the dive. Is there a way to edit them out?

    All I could see that may be considered spots is particulate and or micro life floating in the water in front of the lens

    That could have just been particulate in the water. You see that on lots of dives. It may be heavier in some areas, like close to a ship if there is any surge or current, and then much lighter in other area like off the bottom or in a hold sheltered from moving water. If you have a light source is will make it work unless it is at an angle to the camera.

    Krawlings posted as I was typing this. Think that is it.
