Has anyone actually been able to buy the waterproof housing? I have had the camera for a few months now and the whole time the housing has been reserve only on the website. DJI Support told me to check other providers but they are also pre-order.

Has it even been put on the market yet?

If they aren't available it kind of removes the camera from the 'Go Pro Competitor' catergory. I was hoping to eventually start taking it diving but without the housing the depth is to limited.

You can get third party housings both for the lens module or the lens + screen/battery module if you search around on the internet.
Or you can buy a GoPro instead.

You could try the Telesin version - a pretty reputable company : https://amzn.to/3vHqsmK

With ANY waterproof housing, always place some tissue inside and test underwater to ensure the seal is good before actually using it with your camera........or is that something just I do?!..... lol

The tissue tip sounds like a sound piece of advice.

At least with the similar waterproof case for the Pocket 2, they recommend you to test the seal of the case before putting the camera in. That is a precaution that could save you from an expensive mistake. Also, make sure the seal is clean and not damaged before use so it won't let any water in.

Nope, you aren't alone in using that test method.

I postpone to buy couple of more Action 2 and a new Drone just because DJI seems not to be interested for the international diving community... I 'm waiting for the original Underwater Housing three months now !
I 'm thinking to switch to competitors if DJI does not care about underwater videography... i am so disappointed because i love DJI color science !
Our subscribers in YouTube keep asking us what camera to buy and i 'm tired to say.."don't buy Action 2 until DJI release the Waterproof case"... its so frustrating...

Hi There, I know the thread is a bit old but... meh.

Straight to to the point: I don't recommend this Telesin housing above. It survived one week in Red Sea, than a week in a lake, then coming back to Red Sea it started to leak. Before I noticed it was too late, and SD slot stopped working, but the whole touchscreen module survived... until next dive. I tried to find the problem and solve it by putting some silicone thingy along the rubber etc. and on the second dive it unfortunately leaked again, this time damaging the whole module.
Luckily I have the power module to switch, but the waterproof case couldn't survive my 12 meters diving. If you buy this crap than make sure to buy the Care Refresh protection plan.

I can see that waterproof housing from DJI is now available for 49 Euros and will probably go for it. I still don't get why DJI didn't provide a waterproof touch screen module (or rather with some buttons so you can use them underwater).

I am using two TELESIN waterproof cases for just the camera module since January and haven't had any issues with either while freediving. I also have a cheap waterproof case for the battery+camera module, which did 3 days of diving without issues. The bigger case is not the TELESIN branded one though...

Testing a new case for waterproofness at depth requires quite the effort though. I understand your frustration.

I used this case:

https://abdulwahed.com/en/dji-osmo-action-waterproof-case-dji-osmo-action-case.html

However it seems that after two other occassions now it simply let in some water, so my Osmo Action is water damaged. Previously i used for diving 2 times, and in one other water activity. So i wouldnt say i max it out. Is it normal that the camera got waterdamaged just a small amount of water ? Anybody can help me, that what are my options with it ?

Thank you in advance
