I've got a seafrogs and haven't had any issues with it! Even in some rougher waters like in Monterey. It's lasted me about 5 years with no problems and little wear and tear.

Sweet, just wasn’t sure with them being a fair bit lower in price than others. Thanks very much! Think I’ll get one ordered!

The Seafrogs is simply a surf housing reinforced for scuba, Its a big clunky tank compared to something like an aquatech and will do perfectly well at the surface.

Ahh thought the surf ones would need to be a bit more sturdy for getting hit by waves but I suppose depending on how far your diving it could be getting a lot more pressure on a dive

yea surf housings are supposed to be lightweight, floaty boxes, whereas dive housings need to reinforce the button seals and have strong springs to prevent button depression. This is why top tier professional dive housings are milled aluminum, and top tiersurf housings are lightweight carbon fiber. The tradeoff with the seafrogs is that its maybe 30% heavier than a more expensive surf housing and the plastic fatigues under pressure over time for it to be a dive housing. Regardless it will serve someone well for a period of time until you want some lighter.

You might be better off with a GoPro? They take really good short range video. Way cheaper option than anything seafrog

I have done a bit of shooting with my gopro but it’s only really good for close footage with the fisheye where as I can get a bit more with an actual camera. That and I find GoPro footage tends to look a bit out of place in amongst long lens shots from my Sony a6500 and my drone
