    Hero 3+ and 60m housing

    Is anywhere selling the Hero 3+ with a 60m housing instead of the 40m?

    you can use it in the 3 case as long as you use the backpack





    Waterproof to 197'/60m, the GoPro Replacement Housing delivers maximum image sharpness above and below water. Includes Replacement and Skeleton Backdoors.

    I know it's available, I just wondered of anyone is selling it with the 60m rather than the 40m.

    Hero 3+ and 60m housing

    I received some detailed feedback on the 3 and 3+ last night from a team that deal with GoPro stuff all day long and really know their stuff. In summary:

    The 3+ is a better camera than the the 3 but the housing kinda sucks for scuba. The design of the 3+ seems to be aimed at the guys who like to strap them to model aircraft etc as the main thing is weight reduction. Weight is lost from the housing by making it thinner hence less depth and by using one flimsy looking catch which might not be up to the rigours of scuba.

    The good news is that the 3 and the 3 housing are still available so for scuba either stick with the 3 or put a 3+ in a 3 housing (which fits fine apparently as the cameras are the same dimensions).
