Go Pro Hero 7 and Supersuit

Hi,

Recently got my hands on the Supersuit for my birthday, i own the Gopro Hero 7 black and i was wondering if with skeleton door on could i still go into the water up to ten meters like i could do before with my go pro. I wonder this because obviously you have to take off the lens to put the suit on. Thanks in advance Alex

Re: Go Pro Hero 7 and Supersuit

Hi @alexc07046,

 

 

The Skeleton Backdoor is not recommended for use in underwater capture. It is designed for touch screen accessibility and improved audio capture while providing ultimate protection for your GoPro during extreme outdoor activities.

 

Kind Regards,

 

Ann

Re: Go Pro Hero 7 and Supersuit

@alexc07046, so long as all camera doors are closed, HERO7 Black is waterproof up to 10m (33ft) with or without the lens protector. The lens cover is good to keep on as protection from bumps, etc. -- same goes when you put the camera in the SuperSuit.

Re: Go Pro Hero 7 and Supersuit

You are better off not using the SuperSuit with the skeleton back door. Yes, the camera will be waterproof to it's normal depth without it, but water will accumulate between the lens and housing glass. Filled with water it should be ok, but not as good as without the housing.

Just out of curiosity, why do you want to use the SuperSuit with skeleton back door in water?

Re: Go Pro Hero 7 and Supersuit

Thank you, and only so i could access the screen to change settings or viewing videos and pictures but i do see your point i should probably just use the case with the normal doors in the water

Re: Go Pro Hero 7 and Supersuit

You are much better off with the waterproof door on the Supersuit. You can't access settings or viewing videos very well if the LCD screen is wet as the screen will have a hard time discerning water drops from finger touches. You can access and change settings on the front LCD by pressing the side Mode button and top Shutter button. You should play around with this before putting the camera in the housing to get familiar with it.

Have fun. Hope you capture some great shots!
