Are All GoPros Waterproof

GoPro is an action camera manufactured by eponymous company. Its founder, Nick Woodman, was motivated by a 2002 surfing trip Australia in which he was hoping to capture quality action photos, but could not because amateur photographers could not get close enough or buy quality equipment at reasonable price. Its target customers are those people who like extreme sports and travel. Therefore, all GoPros are waterproof.

However, before the release of HERO4 Session, GoPro can only proof water when cased in waterproof camera housing. The newest GoPros, HERO5 Black and HERO5 Session, can proof water within the depth of 10 meters without any extra accessory. Therefore, there are 3 models GoPro which have waterproof enclosures on the market, HERO5 Black, HERO5 Session and HERO Session.Waterproof Test Footage-GoPro Hero5
