To be fair, they still get the job done, but maybe just not the way divers may have liked. Then ParaLenz came along. What makes ParaLenz stands out is, it actually involved no less 250 divers from around the world in the design process, addressing aspects like size, mounts, placement of buttons, and also digging into the wants of divers with regards to a diving camera. And the result is what you see here, a Red Dot 2017 award-winning ParaLenz. Continue reading ParaLenz Is The First Action Camera Built From The Ground Up For Divers
