Isotta Announces Housing for the GoPro HERO9 Black
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, August 31, 2021 @ 09:00 PM (EST)

Isotta has released its new housing for the GoPro HERO9 Black. The latest incarnation of the GoPro boasts a range of enhancements and improvements, including a new 20MP sensor that shoots 5K/30p as well as 4K/60p and 1080/240p, a new 1.4-inch front-facing display, and a larger 2.27-inch rear touchscreen.

Like its predecessors, Isotta’s HERO9 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 GoPro’s HERO9 Black housing, it’s possible to use any relevant original accessories as well as third-party accessories such as the Backscatter FLIP9 filter system, which is essential for getting great color underwater, and Isotta’s own range of HERO8/9 accessories, including filter system, dual-handle tray, and goodman handle.

The housing is available from Backscatter priced at $450. The retail price in Europe is €450.

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.
