GoPro Sample Videos and Underwater Video

Updated on August 22, 2013

Record your outdoor adventures with a GoPro video camera

What differentiates GoPro cameras from many of the other top rugged cameras on the market is its versatility. Like the others, the GoPro is a waterproof camera designed to capture great photos and videos of your sporting adventures. But unlike the others, GoPro is designed to be worn on a helmet, mounted on your sporting gear (including bikes, surfboards, skateboards, snowboards and more) or worn with an optional harness, enabling you to capture awesome point of view (POV) shots. Want some inspiration for capturing your own adventures? These GoPro sample videos will give you an example of that type and quality of photos and videos you can capture with this rugged camera.

GoPro Underwater Video Samples - See how GoPro cameras work underwater

If you're thinking of taking your GoPro scuba diving, here are sample videos showing the GoPro in action underwater. The Hero2 is waterproof to 197 feet, making it capable of surpassing the depth limit of most Open Water divers.

These videos show various underwater diving scenes, but the second one is particularly interesting (if you're not afraid of sharks!), as the divers put two GoPro units on a pole and baited it with tuna to get some video INSIDE a shark's mouth. If you've ever wondered what the inside of a shark's mouth looks like - or ever wondered whether your GoPro could survive being bitten by sharks multiple times - now you'll known the answer.
