GoPro hero 5 waterproof issues?



Howdy, my family and I are going on a cruise and I was thinking about getting the hero 5. However, I’ve been reading how it has a lot of issues in the water, and has broken many of them even though it’s supposed to be “waterproof”. I also saw on a post where someone said this was an issue with older models. Are y’all still having problems with this?

I was wanting to take it snorkeling but have been really weary with spending the money for possibly destroying it on my first trip.


Suggest you add the GoPro Supersuit Dive Housing for $49. Also perhaps grab a couple of cyan underwater filters, a few anti-fog inserts, and go for it. Just be careful to check the seal for cleaning and alignment each time you open the case. Otherwise, it is reasonably bulletproof.
