Lightbulb Gopro HERO - red filter?

Evening all,

I've been lurking for a while and decided tonight to take the plunge and register!

I have a gopro HERO and I'd like to buy a red filter to make my underwater shots much better.

I can find these filters for everything but the HERO. It's the kind that just snaps on over the front that I'm after. Just looking for something on eBay or Amazon but I don't mind spending the money if I have to.

I've attached an image of my gopro as well for clarity.

As a side note, am I correct in thinking this is the 'original HD HERO'? there are so many variations and I don't know what to refer to this one as

Thanks in advance!!

Thats the GoPro Hero. You still have several options when it comes to filters, since the lens area is the same size as the typical GoPro Hero 4 waterproof housings.

Here are some common examples.
The SRP are probably the highest quality and carry a more professional feel, but naturally they are also the most expensive.

Other alternatives that work well.....
