The purpose of a commercial GoPro dome housing is to seperate water from the GoPro itself. This allows for easy 50/50 or over-under shots as you have more room to accurately compose photographs. This practically free alternative does just that!
Step 1: Materials
- Original GoPro packaging
- Base Plate
- Rubber Bands
- Wrist strap (optional)
Step 2: Wash Up
Step 3: Assemble
The reason it upside down is because the clear plastic section is extremely waterproof while there is no proper seal on top where the base plate is joined. That is why it is extremely important to always still use a waterproof GoPro housing and NOT a skeleton.
OPTIONAL: Using a strap (or elastic bands), feed it through the hole in the "dome" so you can be tethered to the camera.
Step 4: Capture
