GoPro Hero 5 Black in water

I’ve read a few articles here about water leaks. I purchased mine today from Argos UK. Should I get the waterproof case to be sure I’ll not have any issues. Will only use it in a swimming pool or snorkelling.

Hi @greenwater61031

 

GoPro HERO5 is waterproof out of the box but for extra protection you can get a supersuit.

Hi @greenwater61031

 

Thank you for choosing GoPro to capture great moments!

 

So long as all camera doors are closed, the HERO6 Black is waterproof down to 10m (33ft) without a housing.

If there is a need to dive deeper, you can utilize the Super Suit housing, enabling the use of your camera as deep as 60m.

 

Just a tip, after using the camera underwater, place it under running (tap)water with the doors closed. This is to rinse off any residue/ dirt. 

 

Regards,

Ej
