Im tipping that every POV cam in a waterproof case would do the exact same thing, thats why they are called a waterproof case.

yea but the gopro is the only one that comes with it, the contour is only water resistant unless you pay extra for the case.

well, i'm sure they are all waterproof to some extent... but did you watch the vid?


this camera spent two and a half months bouncing along a coral reef and the camera inside was still immaculate. i don't know if other companies cameras would hold up to that, maybe they would i don't really care either way - i just thought that this story was impressive. i don't think any camera manufacturers would design their product with that kind of test in mind...

You need to send this to GoPro for a testimonial maybe you can be in a commercial or print add for them

at 1:32 did you add a splice as you have a pic of the camera itself falling into the water, NOT from the camera point of view???

Yeah i watched it and yes its impressive that it lasted 2 months. The only thing is i believe that all the pod cams in their waterproof cases would do the same. Thats all i was trying to say, i realise that go pro is the most popular cam and thats cool but i disagree that it is the only one that could withstand being underwater for 2 months, and now that you mention it, it could be a new r&d test for cam companies!

I really want to call fake, as of the clip at 1:32. How could they take a video of the camera falling into the water, if it was an "accident"?
