Customer Reviews

It's a GoPro Skeleton case.
Kevin Lawson
Fits perfectly and I can take advantage of every port on the sides of the camera without having to take it out of its case everytime.

And, like all other gopro products/accessories, works as expected and is of high quality.

A must have accessory for shooting indoors, in car, and not taking camera out when connecting it to USB. We were able to use the setup to record in-car video with driver and passenger talking to the camera.

Pros
-Lets you keep the camera in the case - no opportunity for fingerprints on lens
-Quick connect of cables and popping out SD card
-Mic is open so is much more sensitive to audio around the camera.
-Good fit and works as a replacement even if display back is attached.

Cons
-Not water proof - Duh!

80% of the time the GoPro sits in this case. The other 20 its in the water proof one.

90% of the time, my GoPro Hero 2 rests it's feet inside this case. I mainly bought this case to allow access to the USB Charging slot while it's mounted to my windshield and connected to my cigarette socket for full time powering. One of the greatest features of this case is the ability to record clearer audio with the built in microphone. No longer will you hear that awful plastic chunky-chingy-thunking sound that the underwater cases are prone to causing. The case is solid, is opened on both left and right sides and has all button functions that the OEM case has. Definitely recommend this to any looking to access GoPro's USB, Audio, Video and SD slots without having to remove it from it's casing every time. Just remember that this case isn't full protective so don't use it in any areas that would ruin your camera: Water, Mud, dirt, etc.

This is what you need to protect the camera lens while on the desk downloading videos ect due to the exposed lens just waiting to be scratched.It may be used in dry/protected areas but for rain or dirt you need the dry OEM case.I am using this case also as a test unit to add a 37 mm step up ring [to 52mm] so that I can add filters [ cpl/uvA] It seems that the lens outside dimension is 37 mm so even though the lens is not threaded it should be possible to lightly file out the 37 mm ring to fit flush on the case and be carefully glued down.Then a 52 mm filter should fit.It needs 7 mm's to clear the protruding lens.It may take a second 37 mm ring to get the clearance[ Installed first].A cheap 37mm uva with the glass removed should work.Good luck.

Just a follow up, this worked well,no filing was necessary it fit on the front ring and raised the ring up to the proper height.Now I am currently upgrading the Original dry case to accept the 52mm filters.No vignetting on the corners. Pro should add a thread ring to the lens to allow filters.Seems doable to me.

This housing is perfect for pilots wanting to record your communications with ATC. Audio as well as USB ports are accessible with this housing. Arrived on time and in perfect condition. Another great reason I shop with Amazon

I have a bunch of GoPros that I use on a bunch of shoots I do. This case is great for streaming live video from the camera to a receiver while still keeping the camera protected, granted you have the equipment to do that. I use this case inside airplanes streaming live cockpit video straight to the ground.

How many people really need a waterproof housing? I want to be able to plug in a microphone, USB cable, and remove the SD card without having to take the camera out of the case every single time. this is the case that should have come stock. Recommended.

I bought the skeleton housing for my GoPro HERO because I wanted to be able to both protect the main body of the camera from damage and have the benefit of improved audio recording through the open spaces of the housing. This product delivered as expected. My main intention is to use my GoPro to record my paintball games from my perspective, including the on field sounds. one might imagine that having parts of the camera may be dangerous, but I never once got a direct hit on the camera, and all splatter was to the top and front sides of the housing. The camera is regard, regardless, and so long as the lens and buttons are protected, I expect even a shot to the sides wouldn't do any real damage, but don't take my word for it. Either way, the housing worked as promised, as the video looked great and I can hear the voices of other players and sounds of paintball markers firing just fine, without the usual distortion the fully enclosed housings often bring to their recorded audio.
