  • yeah seems like most people using it.

    But is there anyway to secure it? I bought from Fun-in too and used for my trip.
    It fell off when i back roll into the water and luckily able to retrieve it at the coral.
    found out the gopro tripod mount crack at the bottom. i assume i over tightened it.

    now I am trying to find other way to actually secure it so even if it ever fell over again, it won't drop all the way?

    I have something like this....

    Thanks Alvin.

    Yes I know about this. I was thinking of extra thing to secure. E.g. If this happen to broke for whatever reason, it least it doesn't drop all the way down.

  • Hey guys.. Im new here~
    I am student taking my OWD next week and im on the road to dm/itc prog (internship)
    I am reaaaally wanting to get something to record my newly found underwater adventure so i thought a go pro would be a good option because I have a SLR but hell, the uw housing is insanely expensive. I found this deal and the dude (after much coaxing and negotiation) has lowered his price to $400..
    He has used this for 2.5 years, he says its still in great condition and is selling cause he is upgrading to a pro set.

    It's a hero 4 black.. after consulting google, i couldnt find a better deal for a similar OW set.. i think this set is as "full" as it gets..

    I would like the advice of fellow dive seniors here before i make a big leap to purchase this..
    ps, i know $400 may not be alot of money to some, and this set is def. more then $400 but as a poor local student, i dont wanna buy anything on impulse. i just wanna have some opinions  :D

  • Good deal for 400 actually. The only thing lacking is probably the LCD screen and the back door for it...

  • Well.. being as to see very much helps.. and you will learn to keep still... And follow the action. But if your 'aim' is good... Then maybe you will be fine... :)

    One more thing... I think the red filter is a bit iffy.. but maybe it's just the pictures...

    Mmmmmm, if you're really on the way to doing higher levels of dive education i think this part can wait first since you have not done OWD yet even. Nowadays any decent operator will have DM/Instructor who will likely have a gopro or something similar to record your trip.
    Maybe concentrate on learning the skills first and photography/videography can come a bit later?
