The GoBenthic is the best professional grade underwater housing for GoPro Hero3, Hero3+ and Hero4 on the market.
GoBenthic features are:
This housing has been the top seller within the scientific community for good reasons: it offers maximum flexibility, especially if you are going to access the mini usb port. Due to its extreme depth rating, GoBenthic is heavily used in manned submersibles, UUV and ROV.
As with all our housings, there are no external controls to turn the GoPro on/off. This prevents unintentional operation of the GoPro.
If the GoPro is equipped with a WiFi option, the GoPro can be operated remotely. The above water WiFi range is very short once the GoPro fully enclosed in the GoBenthic. WiFi doesn't work underwater. If the GoPro does not have the WiFi option, simply slip the GoPro into the GoBenthic and turn the Gopro on before placing the lid on the housing.
PS: GoPro Hero3+ / Hero4 camera NOT INCLUDED.

Your camera housings performed very well during our recent blast testing. We modified your housings slightly by adding four threaded holes that allow the housing to be bolted directly to something. We also created some stakes out of 1" plate steel for the housings to be attached to. These stakes were driven into the ground near the site of the blast. We placed a piece of 0.25" thick rubber between the housing and the stake to reduce shock waves traveling from the ground to the camera. The system was very stable and showed no signs of damage at all after the test. I used a GoPro Hero3 Black edition set to record 2K video at 30 FPS.
I have attached a partial screenshot from one of the videos, but unfortunately I cannot share any video or any of the details of the blast. The second camera was even closer than the camera that took the attached screenshot. The housings are strong enough that they could be placed closer to the blast, but then the video would be obscured by fire and smoke so the video would be pointless. Because the video we got from your housings was so good, we also used the housings to record other testing later in the week at the request of another engineer.
The most helpful information I can give you is that the housing withstood a reflected impulse of 130 psi-msec. Any other engineer with explosives knowledge will find that value helpful.
In summary, your products are very bomb resistant. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

I started GroupBinc.com as a result of people asking about how I shot my videos on my youtube channel (Frank Abyss).
About 2 years ago, I tried to lower my POV cameras into water with a fishing rod/reel or a rope and quickly discovered that the camera would spin. So I set out to design a stabilizing system that would make the camera track straight underwater, taking a predictable path. I went through a dozen of designs, modifying this and that, and tested several materials. What you see here is the culmination of this extensive testing.
The second item is a specialized underwater housing for GoPro type cameras. I wanted to go far beyond the limited depth of the original OEM case (only 200ft). Once again, I tested several designs and materials and finally arrived at this current version.
We have more patent-pending products on the way, so stay tuned!
