Hero5 black - super suit dive housing

Can the skeleton backdoor be used with Hero5 black for snorkling less than 10 meters?  this would give access to the touch screen.  I guess my question is will the gopro still be water proof (upto 10 meters) since the front lens protective cover is taken off.

thanks

Re: Hero5 black - super suit dive housing

Hello @toughcliff2537

 

With all the doors properly closed, the HERO5 Black camera is waterproof by itself up to a depth of 10 meters or 33 feet. This means without the SuperSuit and with the protective lens on. You might experience difficulty with using the touch screen under water due to water pressure. You can still navigate through modes and settings using the Mode and Shutter buttons though. I hope this helps. 

 

Best regards, 

Marius
