GoPro Release New Blackout Housing

GoPro have released a new waterproof housing that may be a little different to what GoPro fans are typically used to. The new matte black finish on the Hero 3+ Blackout Housing, gives the camera a covert look and will certainly be a great option for those who like to use their Hero 3+ in ‘hidden cam’ situations.

To add to the housing’s stealth-looking style, GoPro have Included a set of non-reflective stickers that can be placed over a Hero 3+'s front LCD screen. This will hide the screen from potential passers-by and keep the camera inconspicuous.

In terms of design specs, the new blackout housing has the same specs as the transparent Hero 3+ housing, with the only main difference being the colour and additional concealment sticker set included in the box. This is suitable for both the Hero 3 and Hero 3+ cameras.
