CamDo Now provides a professional grade long term underwater housing suitable for deep water and extreme environments using the GoPro camera.

  • The Deep Water Camera Housings have room for the GoPro HERO3 or HERO4 camera and a BacPac sized accessory, such as a GoPro Battery BacPac or the CamDo Blink Time Lapse Controller along with access to GoPro camera's USB and HDMI ports and the input/output ports of Blink. The optional battery housing extension (DeepEXT) is designed to fit up to three V15 (15 Watt-hour) batteries or one V50 battery that have the Always On feature required for long term time lapses. Each V15 battery provides about 3 times the recording length of the standard 4.4Wh HERO4 battery. With 3 x V15 batteries, that is 10 x the normal GoPro battery life!

    The housing is carved from a solid block of 6061 aluminum alloy that has been anodized to provide great resistance to saltwater and harsh environments. The housing has been tested to withstand pressures of 2,000 ft.

    Couple Deep with the DeepEXT housing extension for extra battery storage. Buy it here.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    How large is the Deepwater Housing and what does it weigh? 

    The Deep housing weighs 2.690 lb (1.220kg) and has the following outer dimensions: Length 3 ¼” (8.25cm), Diameter 4 ¼" (10.8cm). The housing extension (DeepEXT) weighs 2.415 lb (1.095 kg) and has the outer dimensions: Length 6 ¼" (15.9cm), Diameter 4 ¼" (10.8cm).

    How many batteries can fit inside the DeepEXT housing extension?

    The DeepEXT housing extension has a 3⅓” internal diameter and provides an additional length of 5⅓” that can be used to house up to three V15 battery packs or other accessories.

    If I need more space, can I attach multiple DeepEXT extensions together?

    Yes. Multiple DeepEXT housing extensions can be attached together to lengthen the housing by an additional 5⅓".

    How long will the battery last before it is discharged?

    How long the battery will last depends on many factors such as the camera you are using and the shooting schedule you have programmed. Use our Time Lapse Calculator and Table of Power Consumption figures to help make an estimate.

    The HERO4 camera provides approximately 1-2 hours of total video recording time without external batteries at room temperature. Each V15 provides about 3 times the recording length of the standard 4.4Wh HERO4 battery. Using 3 x V15 batteries, you can expect 10 times the standard GoPro battery life. Coupled with the power saving features of the Blink controller, you can adjust the time lapse interval between images or schedule specific recording times to be able to deploy for many days or weeks.

    If you are taking time lapse images, calculations can be done using our Time Lapse Calculator. Keep in mind that temperature, lighting, battery fatigue, and other electrical inefficiencies will prevent the camera from using the full battery capacity.

    Why is Always On mode important for an external battery pack?

    Most of the USB battery packs on the market have an automatic power saving feature which turns off the battery if the battery is not constantly supplying power to a device. If the GoPro is powered off between triggers, the external battery might shutdown due to inactivity. Often, this feature is not even mentioned in the battery description, and only discovered when you find the camera's internal battery is dead, even though the external battery packs are still fully charged. The V15 has two modes of operation, including an Always On mode that prevents the battery from automatically turning off due to periods of inactivity.

    Can the housing accommodate a wired connection?

    The aluminum housing can be drilled to safely accommodate another connector such as a cable gland that is available up to 30bar (300m), or even a SubConn connectors for use at extreme depths. There are various types of SubConn connectors to fit different requirements.

    What are the properties of the lens?

    The optical glass lens provides excellent transmittance throughout the visible and near infrared spectra and down to 350nm in the ultraviolet. The lens highly scratch resistant with a Young’s Modulus of 8.63 x 105 kg/cm2 and has a refractive index of 1.517 at 589nm.

  • Care Instructions

    Make sure that the threads are clear of dirt and a thin layer of silicon grease is applied to the o-ring before connecting the components. It is prudent to test the housing without a camera before deploying for the first time.

    Connections between the housing should be hand tightened. Over-tightening of the housing compartments can damage the threaded connections.

    Over a long deployment, biological growth can prevent further use of exposed threaded mounting holes. If you need access to these mounting points for future deployments or to assist with disassembling the housing, make sure to plug unused mounting holes using a ¼”-20 threaded screw.
