GoPro with Sunnex Lens

These are a few stills from my half destroyed GoPro HERO HD with the new Sunnex lens I installed. I half destroyed this GoPro, not from actually installing the new lens, but from hurriedly trying to charge the battery after the installation, jamming up the pins in the mini-usb port on the camera. As you can see these images have no wide angle distortion. Focus seems to be at 1-2.5 feet from the camera. This should work great for talking head shots, car mounted detail shots (like spinning wheels) and the kind of shots a regular GoPro just can not get.  Of course you can adjust the focus manually by screwing the lens in and out, but you need pliers and patience to make the adjustment.
