Announcing the DeepPro Domed Water Corrected Underwater Housing for GoPro Hero4
Press Release
Forwarded by:   10-09-2014

Fits the Hero4, Hero3+, Hero3 cameras, Black and Silver editions.
The unique water corrected domed housing for the GoPro allows the underwater filmmaker to capture spectacular extreme wide angle High Definition 4K video at a very affordable budget.

Bellingham, WA – October 8, 2014 - DeepPro Systems is proud to announce that the DeepPro Domed water optically corrected GoPro® Underwater Housing now supports the new GoPro Hero4 line of cameras.

The DeepPro Domed housing has several unique features for the GoPro® camera:

• Fits the Hero4, Hero3+, Hero3 cameras, Black and Silver editions.
• Incorporates a built in “water corrected” Dome Port system which is optimized for underwater imaging. The image Field of View (FOV) narrowing that is normally experienced by a flat port housing design has been eliminated by our dome system.
• The camera’s underwater FOV is approximately the same as the “in-air” coverage.
• Image sharpness and contrast has been much improved, especially at the frame edge.
• The subject minimum focus distance is reduced to about 6 inches from the lens.
• Glove wearing divers will welcome the oversized mechanical controls and easy operation of all major camera functions.
• Lever style controls are unaffected by depth. The following controls are provided:
o Power /On/Off/ Mode access
o Record Start / Stop
o LCD Touch BackPac Power /On/Off
o Setup Button
• Depth rated to 450 feet, 140 meters.
• A pre plugged accessory port is provided to add a cable feed to an external monitor or power supply, adding a leak check system.
• Supports the installation of screw in 77mm glass Color Correcting (CC) filters.
• Includes a robust handle-tray, silica-gel desiccants, and a dome cap.
• Solid Aluminum construction, Hard Anodized finish, Stainless Steel hardware
• 2 Year warranty. Factory service available with a renewable warranty.
• Made in the USA.

Finally: A GoPro Underwater Housing Designed for Underwater 4K Imaging:

Any underwater camera housing utilizing a flat port design will experience a reduction in the camera’s Field of View (FOV) when placed underwater. A flat port housing design results in an 33% loss of coverage when submerged. Subjects appear closer and the image quality at the frame edges experience softness as well. The GoPro® line of cameras are designed to capture extreme wide angle images and the stock GoPro housing utilizes such a flat port design.

The DeepPro Domed GoPro Water Corrected housing employs a built in Concentric Dome Port system which eliminates the optical shortfalls inherent in a flat port housing.

Our dome system underwater restores the camera’s field of view to approximate the above water field of view. This allows the GoPro filmmaker to capture that GoPro’s signature look underwater.

The DeepPro Domed housing supports all aspect ratios and imaging modes of the Hero line of cameras, including the new 4K Hero4 and the Superview mode. There is no vignetting (corner cut off) in any camera mode. Also, image sharpness at the edges is much improved as Chromatic Aberration has been reduced by the dome design.

Another great benefit of the dome port is that the camera’s minimum focus distance is reduced to about 5-6 inches from the camera lens.

The DeepPro housing’s wider angle of coverage and closer minimum focus allows you to move closer to your subject and make better looking video. The benefits of our housing’s unique design is amazing and sample video can be seen at www.DeepProSystems.com.

DeepProSystem designer Mike Meagher says, “Our domed water corrected GoPro housing’s new support for the new Hero4 4K camera is fantastic. Our compact housing allows the GoPro filmmaker to capture 4K video at an affordable budget. The cost of any other camera, lens, housing and dome system with the same extreme wide imaging capability is roughly 3 times the cost of our system.”
