Hello @greenstorm10558

 

Although the HERO7 Silver can fit inside the SuperSuit, the image captured will have the edges cut off (with resulting image being circular) due to the protective screen. The protective screen for the HERO7 Silver is not removable. 

 

Thanks, 

Marius

Hi @greenstorm10558

 

We do not have one directly available from gopro.com

You may check other stores/channels if they have an available case for the HERO7 Silver.

 

 

Thanks!

Hi Ej,

 

I've just bought the hero 7 silver because of the price saving vs the Black but have since realised that there isn't a supersuit that matches its size. The main purpose of the camera for me is to take diving (so below 10m) therefore I'll need a case for it. 

Do you have any timeframes on when you will be releasing a supersuit for the Hero7 silver?

 

Thanks,

Gus

Hi @angusm8542

 

We do not have information regarding the release of a housing for the HERO7 Silver.

All available accessories are listed here: https://shop.gopro.com/International/mounts-accessories

 

Thanks!

Ej

I also have the hero 7 silver and I think gopro needs to fix this as you made it to where we can not take of the lens so we can not use the super suite that gopro sells. You are telling us to use a 3rd party product. So why not make one for the silver and white if you are going to do this in the future or maybe you will get enough complaints and go back to making the lens removable?

If you did some research before buying your gopro you would have seen that it would not fit the supersuit. There is a reason for the price difference. 

The hero 7 white and silver are just the beginner models for people who  do not want to spent to much on a camera for using it on a holiday. If you would like to use it more advanced you always should buy the black version.

But there are housings from other brands which can be used ( with a small modification)

Hi do you think that 

a) GoPro is going to make a supersuit protection case for the GoPro hero 7 silver and white

b) do you know if there are any off brand dealers that have made a case for this if so could you name them

First of all the WHITE and SILVER are budget options with limited features. There will never be an offical waterproof housing for it. You can't take the front glass off.

 

People who wants to go diving with their GoPro should buy the BLACK edition.

 

In fact no one should buy the budget ones but that is a different story.

A) Think they will not make a supersuit voor the silver and white.

 

B) this is an example of a third party case, but you will need to adapt a little ( the lens of the silbver and white is not that deep then the black version) https://www.gearbest.com/action-cameras-sport-dv-accessories/pp_1660505.html?wid=1433363&currency=EU...

If you search "Waterproof Housing Case for GoPro HERO7 Silver/GoPro HERO7 White" you will find them on amazon.com

My son has the HERO7 White (which is basically the HERO7 Silver but without 4K and GPS). It's a great camera. The video quality and stabilization is much better than my HERO5 Black straight out of the camera (even when the HERO5 Black is using Protune), and the audio is much clearer.

I hope you enjoy your camera and are able to find a housing that fits your needs.

Same issue for me. My daughter bought me as a gift the Hero 7 White with the Super Suit. The store salesman at Best Buy confirmed that the SS woud fit as it was indicated on the box that it fit the Hero 7 Black.

I suppose it is rather intuitive that a significant difference in models would warrant a difference in model names, not just the color designation. Intuitive to anyone in the market, except perhaps to GoPro Marketing geniuses! Way to go guys, very smart!

I asked a retailer for a go pro that I can use when surfing. They sold me the hero 7 silver with Super suit and made no mention that they were not compatible. I only found this out whem filming for first time and had black rings around all my footage. Now in a battle with the retailer to refund for the silver so I can purchase the black. @ Go Pro why dont you make this more explicit on the products?
