I agree 100% with this post. There should be a setting that allows us to zoom without the need to actually open the supersuit. As a diver, I am really disappointed with the lack of this feature and would really hope GoPro do something about this. Hopefully there is a possibility to include this in their subsequent updates as it would mean a lot to us divers! We simply cannot take footage too close to the subjects, they will swim away!

So are we supposed to be satisfied by this? The Gopro goes underwater, do we can assume it's designed for Water activities. What's the point if we cannot use it underwater as it should be?
I use a Hero4 Black. There was the 5, the 6 and now the 7. My Hero4 can switch FOV underwater without problem. How can we accept that the Hero7, which should be an evolution, can't ? Removing features is a good thing now?
C'mon GoPro, have common sense, release an update to allow us to choose FOV Wide, Medium and Narrow AS BEFORE. Your zoom thing is the worst thing you've made, and all divers are now waiting.
Since my last message, there is absolutely zero update about this. It's kind to " pass our observations ", but we need updates. Bringing back a FOV setting shouldn't take years. What is taking so long for your Devs team to find a solution? I'm still using my Hero4 because of that, and I can't buy the recent models. It's really frustrating !
Bring back quick setup Wide - Medium - Narrow !

Completely agree with everything in this post. As a diver, I end up going back to my Hero 3+ when I need certain shots. Not being able to adjust the zoom underwater is unacceptable and I will not be buying another GoPro until this is fixed. I also agree with the most recent post, this has been an issue for a long time, it would be good to see something more than a brush off "we'll pass it along".
