Re: Using GoPro camera to inspect bottom/prop

Go Pro cameras here in the Comox Vally cost around $400. A friend bought me one online direct from China for $75, in a great, solid waterproof housing, with a lot of extras.. That kind of purchasing is making ship chandlers nervous.

Re: Using GoPro camera to inspect bottom/prop

Wish this idea would work in the Chesapeake Bay..but viz is generally less than a foot and cleaning is generally accomplished by hand(with gloves on)..

Also Tried a dive light all that does is light up the suspended turbidity in the Bay waters..

There are aftermarket housings designed to improve the GoPro's imaging performance underwater. To to ScubaBoard - Scuba Diving Forum - Diving Social Network - ScubaBoard Home and poke around there. Many threads on the subject.
