Highly effective for in and out of water shots
17 May 2019
This was quite easy to set up and was waterproof out of the box. If you're going to be actually in the water, and the water is open ocean with any kind of wave, I thoroughly recommend using a car windshield water repellent, otherwise you'll find that the dome develops droplets which interfere with the effect you're trying to create (see my photos). They don't tell you this in the documentation!
Although I took the utmost care in protecting the dome, it has seemed to develop some light scratches which are visible with certain lighting situations. Also, sometimes the GoPro lens reflects off of the inside of the dome. You can avoid this by changing your position in relation to the sun.
It's hard to swim with the dome as it's bulky and creates drag, so if you're out swimming with strong currents I recommend taking care. To move out of strong currents, I stuck the handle in my board shorts so I was able to use both arms to swim.
The floating handle can be used independently of the dome, which is a big plus if you'd like to ditch the dome to get some clearer shots underwater.
