GoPro Launches the Floaty Backdoor
Easy to Spot, Removable, Flotation Backdoor For Your HD HERO® Camera
HALF MOON BAY, CA (July 25, 2011) – GoPro, maker of the world’s most versatile HD cameras, today announced the launch of the Floaty Backdoor, an attachable flotation backdoor for the company’s best selling HD HERO® camera.
The Floaty Backdoor is an industrial strength 3M adhesive backing that attaches the float directly to the HD HERO waterhousing backdoor. It’s great for snorkeling, diving, surfing, wakeboarding and any other water activity that might require additional safeguarding. This new accessory adds to the HD HERO’s reputation as the most versatile camera in the world. Available for order today at GoPro.com and subsequently shipping to retailers around the world, the Floaty Backdoor has an MSRP of $14.99.
The Floaty Backdoor follows the incredibly successful launch of the LCD BacPac and Battery BacPac released by GoPro this past spring. The LCD BacPac is a removable LCD screen for the 1080p HD HERO camera and along with the Battery BacPac, a standalone battery charger that also attaches to the back of the 1080p HD HERO, illustrates GoPro’s dedication to providing its customers with innovative ways to expand the functionality of their GoPro camera without requiring them to buy an entirely new camera.
