    I have a GoPro Hero 2 which I use all the time with the GoPro dive housing flat lens. The housing has started to leak, not sure where the leak is coming from. I dove the housing last night (no camera) and there is water in it. 100ft dive.

    I have been looking for a new dive housing with the flat lens for the Hero 2 but can't seem to find one.

    Any ideas on who may have these in stock?

    You can still get them direct from GoPro... 15 bucks, and has the old curved lens window.

    FM1520, Good luck finding one as they have become extremely scarce. They were only made for a few months before GoPro changed to the Hero3 system and what few were made were snatched up long ago. Ebay is about your only hope of finding one and all those will be used.

    Those aren't dive housings.

    yea, that's what I'm finding. I'm hoping someone here on SB may know something.

    I got my replacement a few months ago from Amazon. Just make sure you get the Hero2 and not the Hero3 as some are mislabeled in the description.

    Thanks. The only ones Amazon has are from RageCams and they want $174.00 and that's for the housing only!

    Fwiw the new gopro black is so much better in low light compared to the 2.


    I have the 2 and my buddy has the 3 black. We both had them on te same very low light (almost night dive) and his video had much less noise.

    I might have what you need. We got 2 GoPro's 2's , took both down to Salt Cay. I had a water mark I could not get rid of so.... I zipped off to the house on our SI and switched to the 2nd GoPro setup . Only I had not been careful when setting up the 2nd camera with the LCD backplate, used the one with the ventilation vents......dead GoPro 2. So I've got a second battery (one flooded and 2 never used) and dive housing. Camera and LCD are doa.

    Damm thing was I bought the 2's in September with 2 sola 1200's and didn't need them until Christmas. The 3 came out 2 months after I brought them! The dive housing I got was the newer fixed ones.

    Still using the original 2, will probably go with the 4 either for our Christmas trip or July one.

    Nice camera, that is definitely an option. I like that the LCD screen come with it.
