Dive housing for Gopro hero 5

Is the hero 4's waterproof (130'/40m & 97’/60m) housings compatible with hero 5? Or I will have to buy a new Hero 5 housing if I want to go deep with hero 5?
Thanks!

Re: Dive housing for Gopro hero 5

Great Question @selleo.

No, the new HERO5 Black won't work with the old housing.

The new camera has a removable lns fro the housing.

Only the HERO5 Session frames will work with the HERO4 Session.

 

Hope that helps.

Chris.

Re: Dive housing for Gopro hero 5

FYI:

As was mentioned,

Just like the Hero4 and Hero3+, a separate housing must be purchased if you want 60m dive protection. The Hero5 does have it's own case and does not fit the previous dive housing. It's $10 less than the older dive housing. It can be found here http://shop.gopro.com/accessories-2/super-suit-über-protection-plus-dive-housing-for-hero5-black/AAD...
