The majority of the construction for this rugged video and still camera is its Waterproof Camera Housing made out of Polycarbonate and stainless steel that can go down to 180 feet underwater. Its Shockproof and get this… Bombproof. Wow, there could be a sport or there will be a sport that is so dangerous that GoPro actually made a bombproof video and still camera for that “just in case” moment.
