Wear your GoPro camera like a watch. Secures camera flat against wrist during your activity. Allows camera to securely pivot upright for capturing footage. Waterproof 180’ / 60m. Fits over ski gloves and jackets, one size fits all. Perfect for surfing or snorkeling, hiking or climbing, the HD Wrist Housing makes it easy to have a camera on hand for video and photo opportunities that occur at times when traditional cameras are too inconvenient to use or carry. No pockets? No problem if you are wearing the HD Wrist Housing. The housing can also be strapped to gear such as kayak paddles and the leading edge of kitesurfing kites. This allows the kitesurfer to film their entire session looking down from above, as though they had a private helicopter camera crew following them while they surf. Compatible with ALL HD HERO Original + HD HERO2 Cameras
Top Customer Reviews
Firstly, the quality of this wrist housing is what you could expect from something from GoPro. However the retainer ring/hook to keep the housing secured to your wrist is quite sketchy and it does come undone frequently. (I even held the rubber ring back as far as the velcro would allow to keep it taunt, and it would still pop off.) This accessory doesn't allow you to use any other mounts. You can either use it flipped up, or held down by the hook and that is it.
I was pretty disappointed that you cannot customize the direction the camera is facing, because you basically have to keep your arm bent and held to your chest as if it was in a sling to get a front-facing shot. While scuba diving this isn't entirely difficult because you can use your other arm to steer while your fins are propelling you obviously.
At $40 this is probably the worst accessory offered by GoPro and it's functions are limited. I have since purchased the much cheaper, and more customizable head strap. Also, the chest harness might be another option for those considering this.
If I had to pull some positives for this, and since I do own it and need to figure out ways to make it useful. It does conveniently keep your GoPro within reach, and can be flipped up to take pictures. Also, if you don't mind looking like you're wearing a sling then you can take some video as well.
As mentioned I purchased this to do some scuba diving with, and this is a video from my Scuba Certification Class I took last year. [...] This is with the Original HD Hero, no additional lighting, and could use an underwater lens. The video is decent but that's all related to the camera and not the wrist housing. As mentioned I'm not satisfied with the functionality of the wrist mount itself and think there are better alternatives.
Easy to operate under water: Check!
Turtle proof: Check! Great footage of sea turtle inspecting the camera!
Underwater focus: Uhhhhhh...okay so pretty terrible as is but better once you buy an aftermarket flat port. I hear a new underwater housing will soon be coming from GoPro.
All-in-all, it did what I needed it to do which is leave me relatively hands free underwater (despite the focus issue) while keeping my camera securely strapped to me...and safe from overly curious turtles.
Not sure why reviewers give this such a poor rating. I took this housing down past 100 ft for 30 minutes and got some AMAZING vid. I do wish I would have picked up a filter to put behind the mako lens.
But wrap the strap around your hand so it sits in your palm and BINGO! You've got a great video position for filming all around you or getting yourself in the shot too! I've used it floating down a ripping current into the Gulf of Mexico, swimming in the pool, skiing, sledding..... You can even pretty much use your hand as if it wasn't there. Picking up the kids from the open water at the bottom of the sledding hill or grabbing them before they float by you out to sea to Texas.
I'll just keep finding more places to get great shots! I recommend it highly.... but don't expect to wear it on your wrist.
Be certain to order the correct housing as they are not all the same, gopro hd heros do not fit the newer housings and go pro 3's will not fit this housing. That is the only downside, gopro needed more money so they changed the shape of the camera requiring you to get different housings for each camera.
