I use the GoPro Blackout Housing as my primary housing, and I get a lot of questions about it so I’m going to answer them in this blog!

GoPro Blackout Housing
It’s basically the same exact thing as the clear plastic housing that comes with GoPro. Unfortunately, my clear housing broke when my GoPro few off my car (cool video!). So instead of replacing it with another clear housing, I just went for something new and different and bought the blackout housing.
You’d want to use the blackout housing if you wanted to be stealthy in your shooting. I’m not stealthy with it, but if you wanted to hide it while you’re shooting, or take it out hunting, or doing nighttime stuff, the black housing is for you. It also comes with handy black stickers that you can place over the front display, which reduces glare.
It comes with a skeleton back and a regular waterproof back.
I like mine, I think it’s great! If you need to replace your standard clear GoPro Housing, I definitely recommend the “blackout” housing.
