DIVE Housing for the GoPro HERO5 Black, GoPro HERO6 and GoPro HERO (2018 model) cameras - Waterproof to 45 Metres
The GoPro HERO5 Black, GoPro HERO6, and GoPro HERO 2018 cameras do not need a separate housing to make them waterproof. This is awesome for so many water-based activities. It also means that the microphone delivers crystal clear sound, as it is not muffled by being inside a sealed waterproof housing. You can also use the HERO5 Black / HERO6 / HERO 2018 for snorkelling and scuba diving. However, the housings are only rated down to 10 Metres below the surface.
If you want to dive deeper using these cameras then this new generic After-Market housing will allow you to dive down to a maximum of 45 Metres.
The housing also gives you more peace of mind for shallow water based activities, in case of an impact.
Unlike the genuine GoPro HERO Super Suit, these after-market housings don't require you to first remove the front camera lens cover. You can simply insert the whole camera into the housing. TIP: make sure the front lens cover is completely clean BEFORE inserting the camera into the housing (smudges or marks on the lens cover MAY show up in your footage. Also, if shooting in a Humid environment (typical of most tropical dive sites), please consider using Anti-Fog inserts to avoid fogging (see detailed explanation at the bottom of this listing).
IMPORTANT: It should be noted that currently there aren't any Dive filters (RED, Magenta or snorkel) to fit these housings. It is also likely that there never will be. You can buy them as a kit (different Brand) but they are much more expensive. However, opinion is divided on whether filters are required to achieve the best underwater footage. Possibly the most effective method is to use dive lights and/or colour correction in an editing program.
If you feel you really want to use Filters, then don't buy this housing. Email us to enquire if we have any of the alternate Housing/filter kits in stock.

IMPORTANT: The HERO5 Black, GoPro HERO6, and GoPro HERO 2018 cameras have a factory sealed lens cover. The lens being sealed in a ZERO humidity environment means that fogging should not occur when used normally (above OR below water). However, once you place the camera into a housing you may experience "Fogging" in the lens area due to Humid air trapped INSIDE the housing condensing when the housing is cooled from the outside (for example when snorkelling or Scuba Diving). This is a well-known problem that often occurs in Humid and tropical environments. You can Google ways to deal with this issue to avoid spoiling your footage. One solution is to use Anti-Fog inserts inside the housing.
Watch the below video for a simple way to make DIY Anti-Fog inserts. Note: It is important to make sure they don't interfere with the back door seal closing to ensure housing is waterproof.
