Isotta Announces Housing for the GoPro HERO12 Black
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, October 29, 2023 @ 09:00 AM (EST)

Isotta has released its new housing for the GoPro HERO12 Black. The latest incarnation of the GoPro boasts a range of enhancements, including a 27MP sensor that shoots 5K/60p and 4K/120p 10-bit video, greatly improved battery life (twice the runtime of the HERO11), and GP-Log encoding (allowing greater control of tonal adjustments and color grading during post-production)

Like its predecessors, Isotta’s HERO12 Black housing is made from anodized aluminum painted the company’s signature red. Depth-rated to 200 meters (650 feet), the housing features Isotta’s one-handed open/close, double O-ring seals throughout, and a removable hood that offers a clear view of the rear LCD in bright conditions.

As the housing’s flat port is the same as that found on the housing for GoPro’s HERO12 Black (and HERO9–11), it’s possible to use any relevant original accessories as well as third-party accessories such as the Backscatter FLIP11 filter system, which is essential for getting great color underwater, and Isotta’s own range of GoPro accessories.

Priced at $540, the housing is available from retailers such as Backscatter.

Are you looking for adrenaline even underwater and have you relied on GoPro to tackle demanding challenges? Trust us, we give you the best in terms of safety, quality and challenges.

Our case will be able to follow you up to 200 meters deep even in the coldest waters or adverse condition to show you the unexplored.

With the two raised buttons on the case, you can manage all the functions of the actioncam quickly and easily even with gloves. The two displays on the GoPro are perfectly visible thanks to the large openings protected by scratch-resistant methacrylate, shaped on the shape of the screens, and a removable rear lens hood that ensures optimal viewing of the display in any light condition or situation.


The quick opening with one hand allows you to be operational in a few minutes; the rear cap detaches completely from the front body, so the inserting of the GoPro is free of obstacle.


The flat port on the housing have the same size of the original GoPro Hero 9, Hero 10, Hero 11 and Hero 12 Black housing, so that you can use all the original and universal accessories.


The materials used for the construction and assembly of the housing are of high quality such as anticorodal anodized aluminum and stainless steel.

The double O-rings guarantee the hermetic seal of all the moving and removable parts of the housing up to a guaranteed depth of 200 meters.

An hole located at the bottom allows you to secure the case with a safety strap.

An upper slide and two different holes, one M6 and one 1/4 W, on the bottom support the use of various accessories.
