Hi, I'm interested in the housing! Will PM you! Exactly what I came to look for!


In Topic: GoPro Fusion or ThetaV - Anyone got one?

I have the Theta V, with the housing and have taken it underwater. It is a really fun camera, and on land it has some good applications, but underwater its a "toy".  Lighting will be an issue. If you have strong pointlights (strobes or sunshine" on some side  making the light uneven you will get some unpleasant effects and see the "seams". When the light is even, such as it would a little deeper or when overcast, you will have no color except blue gray. The housing nase is also visible in the image/footage due to it adding to the width of the base.  I owned the 360Fly 4k before the Theta V, and I did NOT love it even as a toy. The quality of the image/footage from the Theta V is WAY better. The Theta V is also much easier to work with and the Mobile app is better - but still room for plenty of improvement. The one thing I really don't like is that the Theta V is constructed quite flimsily. I dropped it once into soft grass and the shell came apart - luckily I was able to snap it back together. It should be sturdier in my opinion.
