Hi, whats included? additional "Free Rechargeable Lithium Ion Battery included"? http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-535/168342/Gopro-HERO-3+-Silver-Edition.html
By boyfriends is a scuba diver. I want to get him the GoPro Silver. What other accessory does he absolutely need to dive with it? Thanks
The camera will work, as is. To make it more equal to other underwater cameras you need to add the LCD Touch BacPac, and the Red Filter. It is also not ready for use with an external light source. To use a normal tray and arm assembly, you'll need the Gopro Tripod Mount. Also, keep in mind the Gopro was primarily designed for video. To capture stills the user will have to learn how to manipulate them with software on their computer.
what camera would you recommend for someone who dives 3-4 times a year? not a housing a real camera
Hi I just placed an order of Hero 3+ silver last friday (aug 1) with payment made. And i choose Amazon standard shipping to Singapore. Can i know when i am expected to receive it? Thanks, Jessica
Based upon the answers to questions it seems that the go pro hero 3+ silver only really needs the red filter ( easily attachable to housing ?) to work as a hand held underwater camera. correct or not? It also seem like the camera can readily be used as your basic above water ( without the red filter) camera. IF true does it have to ( should it?) be removed from the housing before open air use? finally what are shipping times to fl? thanks
