With the GoPro HERO6 Black Underwater Kit from B&H you can film UHD 4K underwater scenes to depths of 33 feet. The included handle makes your GoPro easy to hold, and the filter compensates for the water's effect on the color rendering. Rig up the Freewell Underwater Light for improving exposure of close-up subjects. See below for more information on the individual items included in this kit.
GoPro HERO6 Black
Built on the existing form-factor of the HERO5 Black, the GoPro HERO6 Black action camera provides more processing power than the preceding model, while keeping to a familiar design. The optimized GP1 processor brings higher frame rates in 4K, 2.7K, and 1080p HD resolutions. Where previous models maxed out at 30 fps in 4K, the HERO6 Black can muster 60 fps for rendering smooth motion or even slow motion in timelines with slower frame rates. Other processor-intensive tasks, such as image stabilization, have also been improved in the HERO6.
Like the HERO5 Black before it, the HERO6 Black's rugged, rubberized, adventure-ready exterior is resistant to the elements and waterproof to 33' without a housing. Those with a penchant for diving can go deeper still with the separately available Super Suit housing. What would a GoPro be without mounting options? For starters, the Frame, which features the GoPro standard 2-prong accessory interface, is included along with a mounting buckle quick-release for The Frame and two adhesive mounts (one curved and one straight). Other accessories such as handlebar mounts, selfie sticks, and suction cups, for creative placement of the HERO6 Black are available separately.
The rear side of the camera is dominated by a 2" touchscreen LCD for quickly navigating menus. Once your settings are locked in, the classic one-button interface can take over for quickly starting and stopping recording and changing settings on-the-fly. If your hands are occupied, simple voice commands can start and stop recording, take a photo, or burst of photos, and more.

Video Recording Modes
All video recording modes can be as simple or advanced as you want them to be. If you only want to ensure that a shot is captured, auto-exposure is at your disposal. For those who are shooting less off-the-cuff footage and want complete control, manual control of exposure is also available.
Audio for video is recorded using three microphones. In normal conditions, the HERO6 Black will process the audio for a stereo signal. If high winds start affecting the audio, the HERO6 Black can intuit which microphone is picking up the best sound and automatically switch to that microphone in real-time to filter out any excess wind noise. While the audio will only be in mono, you will know that you're getting the highest possible audio quality.
WDR Mode: Bridging the gap between JPEG capture and raw, the WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) mode is also available. If the scene has dark shadows and bright highlights, WDR mode will retain better detail in those areas.
Burst Mode: Bursts of photos can be taken during high-action sequences to ensure that you capture the moment. The camera's buffer can fit up to 30 photos from a single burst, and burst durations can be set from six seconds to one second, effectively offering a 30 fps burst of 12MP photos.
Time-Lapse Mode: Record clouds floating by, traffic snaking through cityscapes, or stars and constellations tracing their way across the sky with the time-lapse mode. Set your interval from a picture every 1/2 second to every minute for different effects.

Revo Floating Hand Grip for GoPro
The Revo Floating Hand Grip for GoPro from Revo not only provides a handy way to shoot hand-held with a GoPro, it is buoyant enough to keep your camera plus an LCD BacPac safely afloat if dropped in the water. The handgrip's extra-large diameter and wide ridges enable enhanced handling, even with cold or wet hands. A bright yellow paint scheme maximizes visibility, and a wrist strap is included for added security.

Compatible with the GoPro Wrench
PolarPro Aqua Filter 3-Pack with Hard Case for GoPro HERO6 & HERO5 Black
The Aqua Filter 3-Pack for the HERO6 Black & HERO5 Black from Polar Pro allows you to capture accurate colors underwater by providing the necessary color correction. The 3-pack includes a Red Aqua Filter, Magenta Aqua Filter, and Snorkel Filter in a compact protection case. All three filters are designed to attach to the Super Suit Dive Housing for the HERO6/HERO5 by a secure snap-on mechanism.
The red and magenta filters can be used in waters 15-75' deep. The red filter is for blue and tropical waters, and the magenta filter is for algae-rich saltwater and green freshwater.
The snorkel filter is also for blue and tropical waters but for 2-25' depths where the color red is hard to capture. The snorkel filter compensates for the loss of red light.
- Red Aqua Filter for blue and tropical waters 15-75' deep
- Magenta Aqua Filter for algae-rich saltwater and green freshwater 15-75' deep
- Snorkel Filter for blue and tropical waters 2-25' deep
- Designed to attach to the Super Suit Dive Housing
- Secure snap-on/snap-off mechanism
- Includes compact protection case
Freewell Underwater Light with Dual Mount for Single Action Camera
The Underwater Light with Dual Mount for Single Action Camera from Freewell features an aluminum cooling head and six high-powered XT-E CREE LEDs to provide brightness of up to 1000 lumens. The light is powered via a rechargeable 2200mAh lithium polymer battery and boasts a run-time of up to 3.5 hours. Waterproof up to 130', this light features a dual mount that holds the light and separately available GoPro or other action camera together to add ease to shooting. It has a standard GoPro type mount that can be used on a helmet, bicycle, or monopod.
GoPro Super Suit Dive Housing
Suit up your GoPro with the GoPro Super Suit Dive Housing for extra protection during extreme outdoor activities and deep-water diving. Waterproof to depths of 196', the Super Suit is great for SCUBA activities. It's compatible with the HERO7 Black, HERO6 Black, HERO5 Black, and HERO 2018.
Since the Super Suit completely surrounds the camera, it's also ideal for adventures in areas with fine sand and dust, or where the camera may come in contact with flying debris. If the 196' depth protection is not needed, the waterproof backdoor can be substituted for the skeleton backdoor, which allows for touchscreen operation. With the waterproof backdoor, operation of the camera is limited to one-button navigation and remote control. To keep image quality pristine, the glass lens on the front is flat, as to not introduce any extra distortion or diffraction.
