Hero 7 water usage

Is there anything I need to be aware of regarding using my Hero 7 under water for the first time? Should I be concerned with this open slot on the bottom of the camera, pic 1? Will my screen protectors that are slightly bubble cake any water retention, pic 2 and pic 3? Ps I did get the super suit as well. Thanks!

Hello @persyst

 

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

The open slot is by design and the screen protector should be fine.

 

For reference, you may check this video guide for using the camera underwater.

 

 

Thanks!
