Advertising underwater use and providing a waterproof case it seems, is an promise to buyers that they can actually use the product to stated depth! If you bought one of the Intova cameras with case rated to 197' and it flooded with normal use or because of a defect , Intova Joe( owner) of the Company based in Hawaii , stated several time on the scubaboard forum that they would replace the camera! There's no practical reason why a Chinese manufacturer could not stand behind the product unless it is disreputable!No GoPro does not cover water damage. No company does. They say it is the users responsibility to ensure the case is functioning correctly and to properly seal the case. So they do not cover water damage.
It sucks to see that happen. I just ordered the camera and now I am pretty worried.
GoPro Does offer an extended warranty for an additional $99. dollars. And if you if the camera gets water damage you pay another $79 on top of that to get replaced.
