GoPro Hero 7 Black

I have a few questions,

 

Whats the battery like on the hero 7 black?

 

How do you attach the hero 7 black to mounts?

 

It looks like the hero 7 black doesn't need a case for upto 30m, is it fine without a case for the sea, rapid rafting, swimming pool, etc?

 

Does the hero 7 black fit into other go pros cases?

Hi @dsfsdfs0576

 

Most mounts and accessories from older GoPro models are compatible with the HERO7 Black.

You would normally need the camera on the frame and attached to the mounting buckle using a thumbscrew.

So long as all camera doors are closed, the HERO7 Black is waterproof down to 10m (33ft) without a housing. 

You would need to use a Super Suit for depths up to 60m.

 

 

Thanks!

Re: GoPro Hero 7 Black

Got one more question, is there some way to have a backup in case the mount fails?
Aside from tying some rope to the gopro and holding the rope?
