Field of View

The measurement of the diving masks field of view by Apneapassion is 100% certified, precise, repeatable and comparable. Each mask is mounted on a dummy head with all parameters kept unvaried. A photo is shot using a camere positioned exactly in the place of the dummy’s left eye. The final result is a photo showing exactly how wide the field of view is in every one of the 8 cardinal directions. The sum of such values gives a final number which is a good indication of the quality of the field of view of the specific mask. Below are the updated standings of all the masks that we have certified as of today, so that you can compare every model of every brand to the other.

The field of view is a very important parameter, especially in spearfishing, but of course also in freediving, scuba diving and snorkeling. Still, it is clear that the most important aspects of a mask remain the comfort and perfect water seal.
