I'm new to GOPRO cameras, but I'm not new to diving. Anyone who has looked for an affordable solution to underwater video recording has most likely realized that the options are VERY slim! Needless to say this was my attraction to the Hero 2. The only problem.... the BLUR!

There are a multitude of products to fix the blur, but this is the first product offered by GOPRO, and I must say it is an amazing product. The case functions just like the original, with an identical latching mechanism. The difference in the flat front lens. It gives amazing quality and allow the camera to give sharp focus above or below the water. Note: The new lens cuts off about half of the LCD display, but you can still see most of it.

My only complaint is that GOPRO hasn't released any clip on filters; however, I doubt it will be long before they do. You can take off the lens cover with a 6 point screwdriver and drop your own gel filters in there if you'd like, but I'm not sure if this will compromise the waterproofing.

Pro-tip: Put a little Rain-X on the lens so you get a smooth underwater to above water transition.

As Soon as they release some filters then I'll up it to 5 Stars

We just finished our first ocean dive trip and thanks to this dive housing really have some great video and pictures to share and enjoy. This thing works great, we never had any problems and find the pictures and videos to be very realistic and accurate representations of what we saw and also heard. I am surprised that it picked up the sound as well as it did. You can hear boat motors as they pass near, and us talking on the surface and so forth. Even at 30' if I talked it would record it. When sharing the videos with family and friends we have a very accurate recording of what it both looked and sounded like.

I will upload a video taken with the GoPro Hero2 and this housing during a dive at Catalina Island 26 miles off the California coast. The video was shot in about 25' of water at a place called Ship Rock at Twin Harbors. You can see how clear and sharp things are, though the camera was moving a bit (we learned to hold it still in our hand as we dove instead of on our heads or gear) Notice the sound in the video too, that is what it sounded like as it was shot, you can near the ocean sounds the waves hitting a nearby rock.

*** I just checked the video and after Amazon "processed" it, it looks terrible. The actual video is HD quality, super sharp and looks great. I'll post it to YouTube in HD with the name "Matt following a California Garibaldi fish". You can watch it in HD online. I posted a dozen more diving videos, all shot with the GoPro Hero2 and Dive housing now.

Since the GoPro Hero2 came with the original housing we did some testing in a pool before out trip to the ocean.

I don't understand why amazon is charging so much!! I love shopping amazon but for this i went to my local best buy and picked it up for $49. (every dive shop has them for $49 as well) It works perfect as is and even better with a red filter for ocean filming. No lens distortion and sharp footage!!!

Says in product description hat its compatible with all HD Hero cameras but it does not fit the Hero3 cameras, as they're too small for the housing.

The video was great but in just 6 ft of water for 20 min it had accumulated about 5 drops of water. I can not tell if it is coming from the rear door, buttons or lens area. I am worried what will happen when I go deeper for longer periods of time. I am now testing it with the original door on this new housing which seems to have a tighter fit. Will update.

Update: 8/31 Post Dives: I dove multiple times ranging from 25' deep to 80' deep and with the original backdoor and the new housing the camera was leak free. I upped my rating to a 3 because now it seems to work fine but only because I thought to try my original door. Even at that I did not trust it so I packed small pieces of paper towel into the housing just in case I got some drops. I will use the rear door sent with this product for non submerged applications and save the working one for dives.

Barring the leak issue the housing took amazing video under very high visibility circumstances regardless of depth. I did find that still shots often turned out blurry but that may have been user error.

This housing provides for a much clearer image when shooting underwater. Very easy to use. The only drawback is that you can't really see the display on the camera very well when it is in the housing. But totally worth it!

This housing is to be used for underwaterr filming. It has a flat lens rather than the convex lens that comes with the camera. I recommend this housing for underwater use. There is no distortion with this lens,
