HERO question

Ok, so I just got the HERO for my birthday. It came with a black case that just goes around the outside. Is that the waterproof case, or is my camera already water proof? I know you can buy the clear case, I just did not know if I need that clear case to take the camera into the water.

Re: HERO question

For shallow water like swimming, surfing, snorkeling, your camera is waterproof with or without the black frame. If you are going deeper or want extra protection, then you should use the Super Suit housing (clear case).

Re: HERO question

 

Hi @greenbluff7677

 

So long as all camera doors are closed, the HERO(2018) is waterproof down to 10m (33ft) without a housing.  Users with the need to dive deeper can utilize the Super Suit housing, enabling the use of your camera as deep as 60m.

 

 

Thanks!
