Great GENUINE Go Pro DIVE housing - this is the !ONLY! one suitable for diving,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: GoPro HERO 1 & 2 Flat Lens Dive Housing (Electronics)
To clarify; the 'standard' Waterproof housing is fine above the water (for weather protection, sand/ water splashes etc) but *NOT* any use for DIVING UNDERWATER:
Why- ? because the lens cover is the wrong shape (round), and the images will be totally distorted under water, in fact of absolutely no use at all, I found out the hard way! The images will all be totally out of focus and a blurred mess.
Go Pro do not make this very clear on the 'standard' waterproof housing information.
This DIVE housing however (finally!) has a corrective 'flat' design lens, so the images remain crisp & clear Underwater...
You can change out the exterior for corrective colour filters too if you wish, depending on how deep, and the availability of light where you dive. It also comes supplied with a protective lens cap, cap lanyard, and the standard GoPro attachment clip, in order that it may be attached to any other GoPro device (eg a hand held mount / pole etc). The back door can also be changed (eg if you fit a LCD screen or bigger battery).
Great item, very well made and high quality. A shame it took Go Pro so long to acknowledge and resolve the problem, but now done, this works perfectly.
Be aware the Go Pro camera versions 3+ are a totally different design and will not fit inside this housing.
I WOULD recommend this item.
