CamDo provides a professional grade underwater housing suitable for deep water and extreme environments, such as for munitions testing or in air or water containing corrosive chemicals. The Deep Water Housings have room for the GoPro camera and space for either aGoPro Battery BacPac or theCamDo Time Lapse Intervalometer.
The housing is carved from a solid block of aluminum and has been tested to withstand pressures of 5,000 ft (1.500m, 152 ATM, 154 BAR), or 2,300 PSI (157 Kg/cm2).
The anodized aluminum is resistant to saltwater and harsh environments.
The time lapse Intervalometer can be used to start the camera after a fixed time delay, allowing ample time for deployment and starting to shoot video, or still photos when the camera reaches the bottom. In time lapse mode, hundreds of photos can be shot over several days on a single battery charge.
Due to the thickness of the glass lens, some cropping occurs, a small price to pay for an enclosure suitable for long term immersion in deep water.
Please note that our Deep Water products may not be purchased for resale to third parties.
Information about how to use the housings, care, and maintenance is in theDeep Water Housing User Manual. Read this information before using the housing. It is prudent to test the housing without a camera before deploying for the first time.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long will the battery last before it is discharged?
The Intervalometer can be used to extend the battery life. How long the battery will last depends on many factors such as the camera you are using and the shooting schedule you have programmed. There are just too many variables to give an accurate answer.
An analysis of the power consumption of the various GoPro cameras and an explanation of how to calculate the theoretical battery life is outlined on theGoPro Power Consumption page. OurTime Lapse Calculator page can be used to assist you in planning the interval times of your time lapse project.
How large is the Deepwater Housing and what does it Weigh?
The HERO2 housing weighs 1 lb 2 oz (531 gr). The dimensions are: Length 3" 1/8 (8.3cm), Width 2" 3/8 (6.4cm), Height 2" 1/2 (6.6cm).
What are the Physical Properties and Chemical Composition of the Lens?
The lens in the deep water housing is made from borosilicate. The light transmission is about 87%. Optically, it's free of distortion. It is also unaffected by temperature change. It is heat resistant up to 800 C. (The camera isn't).
