    Has anyone tried the distortion correction on still photos? It is working great on videos. But on pictures, it does not work especially if objects are close. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Hello Friend. My Experiences:
    Try to use the horizon line in your favor when you activate Distortion correction.
    Distortion does not solve the picture bulging, only alleviates ..

    I have to agree with @Thiago_SJCAM_User, since the lens itself if bulging to achieve the wide angle, if an object is really close to the camera it will still have the barrel distortion effect common with fisheye lenses.
    Distortion correction works best when it has something to work on that's not overly distorted that way.

    Before I bought my Legend I had an Olympus Stylus TG Tracker, That had a wider lens than the legend & I couldn't put up with the barrel effect, so I sent it back & eventually bought the Legend. However, what it did have was an underwater lens cover which cut the field of view down to acceptable levels. Maybe someone will produce something similar for the legend??
