We used it while snorkeling in Maui and came up with some great underwater shots!

The GoPro Dive housing has exactly the same water proof specks as the standard housing. The only difference is it has a different flat "lens cover" that accounts for the difference in refraction between water and air. Unless using the GoPro exclusively for underwater, or if you do not want to (or don't know how to) edit the slight vignetting, just use the standard case. Both cases are good to 60m (197'). All the editions of the camera are the same, pick the one that has the basic mounts you will use most (Outdoor, Motorsport, Surf)

If it is super bright under the water a red lens cover will make the colors pop... didn't know about it until I got back from the Great Barrier reef. Did use the dive housing, did get some great video. Wish the colors stood out.
