Re: Underwater With GoPro Fusion

I hope that the Chinese will start making underwater houses for gopro fusion like 360bubble. I would like a smaller case size and a lower price for the product. Can someone found an equivalent  360bubble?

Re: Underwater With GoPro Fusion

Anyone used the newfrog (?) underwater housing for scuba diving yet?

Re: Underwater With GoPro Fusion

I have the case (overpaid on Amazon).

And in this video Fusion is in the case (stitch lines are more visible because video was entirely compiled/edit with mobile app)

Be sure to set the resolution playback to at least 1080p on the videos above or it wont look good.

It wont work any better for scuba than the Fusion without a case (except for the added protection). I think the only way to get a good underwater 360 video/Photo with Fusion is with something like The 360Bubble.

Re: Underwater With GoPro Fusion

Okay, I am waiting for a replacement from New Frog.  My latch broke on the 2nd use!  It is the same exact manufacturer on Amazon.  It does nothing better underwater period trust me been diving all summer.  But I will say if they fix the latch issue (black plastic hinges) definitely worth getting because it protects the camera lenses completely.  Hope this helps.

Re: Underwater With GoPro Fusion

Do not buy these protective boxes like on Amazon.I got such a box today and I did a test. The result is this, the seam after stitching is very noticeable and I do not recommend using this protective case. I think that the wrong geometry of the glass that protects the lens, the fault

I think it really just depends on what you're filming. For me, when I'm surfing, mountain biking, or just out with the family, I'm fine with a little distortion at the stitch line. The added protection is a fair trade off for me. In the videos I posted, I don't give an opinion, just show the results. People can make up their own mind whether they want to purchase the protective case or not.

As far as durability, I still haven't had any issues with the latch, so perhaps it was just the first manufacturer batch that had this issue.
