Ask a question about this product

The depth that a housing will survive is dependent upon its size, material, thickness, and safety factor. The H2OV was designed with a very conservative safety margin, and has been pressure tested to 400 ft. A properly designed housing can provide years of use, and will not flood unless it has been damaged or the seals have not been properly maintained.

All housings are tested before shipping to insure there are no defects in design or workmanship.  After that, it is the responsibility of the user to avoid damaging the housing and maintain the o-rings and their sealing surfaces.

Housing Operation

Removing the Cover
The latches on the H2OV are spring loaded and include a safety catch to prevent accidental opening.

The best procedure for removing the cover of the housing is to place the palm of one hand over the back of the housing and press in the small safety catch on one of the latches. With your other hand, lift up on the latch, allow the latch to remain hooked to the cover. Repeat this process with the second latch, and then remove the cover.

Do not place the housing with the lens face against an unprotected surface while removing or replacing the cover, taking care not to scratch the lens face.

Inserting your Camera
Insert the camera with the power and record switch in the off position., insert with the bottom of the camera facing the felt pads. The camera's small lanyard can be tucked along side the camera to allow room for the cover, (the lanyard will also allow you to easily remove the camera from the housing).

Replacing the Cover
Inspect that the sealing surfaces are clean and free of any foreign particles.  Place the cover on the housing making sure that it is seated properly. Set both latches loosely on the hooks of the cover then press down on both latches at the same time. Look to see that you have a good seal, you should see a solid black line on the o-ring.  

Camera Operation
To turn the camera on, firmly press the power control button on the back of the housing. To start recording, simply rotate the control knob clockwise. To stop recording, rotate the control knob counter clockwise.
