Eye Of Mine GoPro HERO3 Underwater HDMI Video Out Housing for GoPro HERO3 and HERO3+


Availability Details


This item has been discontinued by the manufacturer and is no longer available.

The GoPro HERO3 Underwater HDMI Video Out Housing from Eye of Mine is designed specifically for the GoPro HERO3 and HERO3+ cameras. It uses the FLAT LENS 3D housing that provides room for the HDMI cable to enter from the left, while the camera fits into the right side of the housing. Both the camera's top and front buttons work when it's placed in the housing, however, the LCD screen will not work. The camera functions as it normally would without the HDMI cable.

The housing also accommodates the camera when a GoPro Battery BacPac (available separately), which doubles the battery life, is attached to it. The housing is pressure tested to a depth of up to 40' and comes with a 25' HDMI cable. The separately available HDMI signal booster may be required as some portable HDMI monitors don't accept weak HDMI signals and will either show no signal or a signal that will cut in and out. An optional, permanently installed USB power cable (not included) allows powering the camera down to a depth of 32'.

Note! Even though this is a 3D housing, it cannot be used for 3D video due to the modifications made to it. None of the 3D kit contents are included. Remote control of the camera is not possible when placed in the housing. The maximum tested HDMI cable length is 35'. You may not be able to add any more length because microHDMI cables are not suitable for long runs. The outside end of the HDMI & USB cables must be above water, or over time, water may enter the housing through the cable under pressure.

For Use with GoPro HERO3 and HERO3+
Cable Length microHDMI: 25.0' (7.6 m)
Water-Proof 40' (12.2 m)

    Comments about Eye Of Mine GoPro HERO3 Underwater HDMI Video Out Housing for GoPro HERO3 and HERO3+:

    As you probably know, one of the big problems with WiFi is that it does not penetrate water so there's no way to monitor your GoPro while shooting underwater unless you are down there with it. I've been sticking mine under the waves and tidepools on a pole, and frequently found that I'd have missed the perfect framing because I could only guess. So I researched and found this unit, and it seemed the best option.

    It doesn't leak - so far so good.

    It's much bigger than the standard housing, so that's a bit of a downside.

    Another is that the cable is a little on the stiff side, and this affects two things: Cable wrangling topside, as it tends to want to return to a coil, so extra length becomes problematic as one is trying not to fall into the water, and also, inside the casing, the stiffness translates to a bit more stress on the HDMI port than I'd like.

    Other than that, quality wise, everything is just peachy. The description does mention the fact that there is no way to control the camera. Oh well.

    Can't wait to use it underwater on my boat to chase whales. Being able to monitor from above, I can turn the camera to follow the action.

    I'm using it with a SmallHD DP4 for now, or I could monitor/record on my PIX220. But these both require mounting them somewhere which hampers mobility (especially on a slippery rocky shore) or that I use a hand to hold the monitor up (to my eye as a viewfinder.

    The best idea, I think would be to use with video goggles. I'm sure some disorientation will take some getting used to, and special attention to safety (fall off rocks again, didja?)
