@luisl547, yes, so long as all camera doors are closed, the HERO8 Black is waterproof down to 10m (33ft) without housing. Users with the need to dive deeper can utilize the Protective Housing, enabling the use of your camera as deep as 196ft (60m).

 I tested my go pro in a cereal bowl of water, literally 10cms of water,  and i could see water seeping in. My lens fogged and i saw water droplets on the lens. Very bad quality control Gopro I am losing trust and will buy a DJi OSMO instead!
